Cerec AC - Now at Pro-Denticare!


Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics

CEREC AC is a high tech machine, that allows a dentist to produce an indirect ceramic dental restoration using a variety of computer assisted technologies, including 3D photography and CAD/CAM.

With CEREC, teeth can be restored in a single sitting with the patient, rather than the multiple sittings required with earlier techniques.

Additionally, with the latest software and hardware updates, crowns, veneers, onlays and inlays can be prepared, using different types of ceramic material.

Single Appointment Restorations:

Most dental restorative methods require more than one visit to the dentist. This means that on the first visit, you get an injection of anesthesia, your tooth prepared, an impression taken, and a temporary restoration put on your tooth.

You make a second appointment for a couple of weeks later, get another injection, have the temporary removed and have a permanent restoration put on.

With CEREC, the procedure is done in a single appointment, start to finish. With CEREC, the dentist can use strong, tooth colored ceramic materials to restore your teeth to their natural beauty and function.

Dental Materials:

CEREC materials match the physical properties of natural tooth more closely than metal crowns. Specifically, when hot food or cold drinks are consumed the restoration and tooth expand and contract at closer rates so that they don't interfere with each other.

Also, the materials are chemically bonded to your tooth, so the dentist can save as much healthy tooth structure as possible while providing you with a dental restoration that strengthens your tooth.


The cavity preparation is first photographed and stored as a three dimensional digital model and proprietary software is then used to approximate the restoration shape using biogeneric comparisons to surrounding teeth.

The practitioner then refines that model using 3D CAD software. When the design phase is complete, the information is sent wirelessly to the milling unit which mills the actual restoration from a solid block of material using diamond burs.

The restoration is bonded to the tooth using a resin cement which bonds to both the restoration as well as the tooth itself.
