CerecTooth-colored ceramic crowns – fast, metal-free and no impression

CEREC is an abbreviation for Ceramic Reconstruction. The system was developed in 1985 and has been used ever since in clinics and dental offices. With CEREC it is possible to create aesthetically especially appealing all-ceramic fillings and crowns in a single treatment session.

The CEREC system consists of a recording and a grinding unit. The polished tooth is scanned with a special measuring camera (without physical contact). The image of the tooth appears on the screen of the receiving unit (a mobile PC). The dentist can now edit the form and design of the inlay or crown on the screen. A ceramic block is chosen according to the exact size and color of the patient’s tooth. Then the data is transmitted to the grinding device. The grinder precisely cuts out the constructed restoration from the ceramic block. Within 10 to 20 minutes, the grinding operation is finished and the ceramic filling can be inserted. For that a special adhesive technology is used.

Within a short time the tooth is supplied with a beautiful restoration which hardly distinguishes from the natural tooth.
