Modern CAD/CAM technology makes it possible.

CEREC – a procedure with a long tradition.

The CEREC procedure was developed at Zurich University and has been successfully deployed in dental practices since 1985 – i.e. for more than 25 years.

Worldwide more than 25,000 practices in over 50 countries work with the CEREC system.

Since 1985 over 8 million patients have been treated using the CEREC procedure. More than 20 million ceramic resto rations have been created and placed.

Long-term clinical studies demonstrate that – in terms of durability – CEREC restorations are at least equivalent to gold restorations.

Depending on the individual case, CEREC fi llings can achieve even better results than gold fi llings.

The CEREC treatment procedure means:

  • No conventional impressions
    The CEREC 3D measuring camera scans the prepared tooth in just a few seconds. This eliminates the need for un pleasant silicone impressions.
  • No temporaries
    CEREC restorations are milled out of a solid ceramic block in just a few minutes. They are then ready to be placed immediately. This eliminates the need for temporary fillings and crowns. It also means that you need only one appointment.  And you don’t have to wait for days on end until the ceramic filling is finished.
  • No long waiting periods
    Because CEREC restorations can be placed immediately, you need only one appointment. And you benefit from tooth restorations which have demonstrated their durability time and time again.

The CEREC procedure step by step.

  1. Before treatment begins we inform you about the benefi ts of CEREC.
  2. After removing the decayed tissue or the defective amalgam fi lling we create a 3D image of the tooth with the aid of the CEREC camera.
  3. The restoration is designed on the monitor of the CEREC acquisition unit.
  4. The CEREC milling unit machines the restoration out of a ceramic block.
  5. The milled restoration is bonded directly to your tooth.
