Is CEREC Right for You?

If you have been avoiding cosmetic dentistry because you just don’t have the time, you need to call and schedule an appointment with Dr. Paul Shinto and his team of cosmetic dentists in Glendale. Dr. Shinto and his team have the tools, the experience, and the expertise to give you a brand new smile in as little as a single dental appointment thanks to CEREC.

CEREC, also known as chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics is CAD/CAM dentistry that was developed by M. Brandestini and W. Mormann in 1980 at the University of Zurich. CEREC was created for the sole purpose of dental restorations.

CEREC is a truly revolutionary cosmetic dental procedure that allows your dentist to replace a missing or damaged tooth structure using ceramic materials that are as close to your own natural tooth as possible. Best of all, it all takes place in your dentists office as everything is done in house.

All ceramic porcelain onlays and inlays, veneers, crowns and even dental implants from CEREC look and feel just like your natural teeth and can be custom made and fitted in just one dental appointment, which is usually about an hour depending on the cosmetic dental procedure that you are having.

With CEREC the need for messy impressions is eliminated thanks to CAD/CAM dentistry that takes pictures and x-rays of your teeth so that the computer can tell the milling unit what needs to be made. This means no temporary restorations and no second appointment because you had to wait for your restorations to come back from the lab.

Similar to porcelain, CEREC is all ceramic and has been designed to look just like the enamel on your teeth. CEREC can be used for dental crowns, filling replacements, inlays, onlays and in some cases even bridges. Some cosmetic dentists are even using CEREC for dental implants. CEREC is also used to replace old silver amalgam fillings.
