Today, countless individuals have a fillings made of amalgam or some other material that does not match the color of your teeth. CEREC (Chairside Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) gives you the possibility of having your next dental restoration permanently corrected in just one visit to Keowee Family Dentistry. It can provide you with a porcelain restoration on the same day, rather than having to wait weeks and return to the dentist multiple times.

What is a CEREC dental restoration?

During a CEREC dental restoration, our dental experts will examine your teeth to determine what treatment will best provide you with the results you need. If CEREC restoration is recommended, your tooth will be prepared for the restoration and a 3 dimensional optical scan of your tooth will be taken. This high-resolution optical scan will be used to create a ceramic restoration that perfectly fits your tooth and matches the rest of your teeth.

In about 15 minutes, the CEREC milling machine will sculpt your ceramic restoration from a block of dental porcelain. Once the restoration has been tested for proper fit, it is permanently bonded to your tooth. The finished result is a ceramic restoration that looks and feels just like the rest of your teeth.
