- About us
CEREC is a method of computer-based, direct manufacturing of milled ceramic inlays, onlays, partial crowns, veneers, and crowns for the frontal and side tooth areas.
One of the advantages of this method is that size-customized dental restorations can be made and inserted directly into the patient’s tooth (chairside) in one sitting. No temporary fillings are therefore necessary.
The impression analysis is established on a non-contact basis with a three-dimensional camera. Impressions are no longer necessary, which had previously induced a gag reflex in many patients.
Cost: CEREC restorations are 30 to 40% per cent are cheaper in direct comparison to the traditional inlays and crowns (made by external professionals).
Proven: CEREC has proven itself in practice. There are many patients who have had these fillings for 20 years and many studies confirm their reliability. Most dentists shy away from this step because working with the computerised technology is initially unfamiliar. Dr. P. Tschuor now has 10 years of experience in this area.
CEREC stands for CEramic REConstrution.
The CEREC method was developed in 1980 at the University of Zurich by Prof. W. Mörmann, and Dr. M. Brandestini. Today, CEREC is represented by the company, Sirona.
