CEREC®, or Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, allows for the creation and placement of restorations like dental inlays, dental onlays, dental crowns, and dental veneers in just one visit. Dr. Kenneth Schweizer is proud to utilize CEREC in Sarasota, Florida. Usually, dental restorations take about two to three weeks to be constructed in dental labs. This means that the patient needs to have at least two dental appointments and that a temporary restoration needs to be placed. However, with CEREC technology, everything involved in having a dental restoration placed is completed in just one visit. Not only is the more convenient, this means that the patient does not have the extra expense of having a temporary restoration placed.
When you have a dental restoration placed with CEREC, our dentist will first take a digital impression or scan of your teeth. Digital impressions do not have the hassle and messiness of traditional dental impressions. CEREC software then takes these 3D impressions and calculates restoration proposals. This helps our dentist to design your dental restoration quickly and easily. Our dentist will then use either a milling or grinding machine to construct your dental restoration in just minutes.
