Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, also referred to as CEREC©, is a complex machine that is used by dentists to provide you with the latest when it comes to 3D computer dental technology.

CEREC© is used to create the highest quality dental restorations in the comfort of the dental office. In fact, depending on how many teeth are to be restored, CEREC© can be completed in a single dental appointment.

According to Dr. Paul Shinto and his dental team, there are quite a few reasons to consider CEREC© Crowns. However, below are the top three that you need to remember.

Fast and Convenient     ©

In most patient cases, placing a dental crown takes multiple appointments. Traditional dental crowns require several dental visits as the dental crown needs to be made offsite. Because CEREC© crowns are placed in just one sitting, you do not have to wait for a couple of weeks to get your new crown. Thanks to the advanced CEREC© system, you can have your new dental crown while you take your lunch break. What’s even better is that you do not have to deal with a temporary crown.


With traditional dental crowns those messy impressions make it difficult to get a really good mold of your teeth. If the mold isn’t made the right way it good prevent a proper fit. Keep in mind that the material used for the impression is very temperature sensitive meaning that time will affect how your new crown fits over your tooth. Because the image of your tooth is converted using advanced computer technology, the 3D computerized model provides your dentist with the most accurate restoration available.

Life Like Quality

The porcelain that is used to make CEREC© crowns and CEREC© restorations matches the exact color of your natural teeth. The life like porcelain looks just as natural as your own teeth and does not contain any type of metal that will affect how your dental crowns appear. Unlike porcelain fused to metal crowns, gold or silver crowns, CEREC© creates a much more natural looking smile. CEREC© crowns or any other type of CEREC© restorations bonds and seals perfectly with your own teeth lessening. This lessens the chance of tooth decay or gum disease.
