Chair-Side Economic Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, or CEREC, is a revolutionary treatment aid that allows cosmetic dentists to provide quick, custom-fit dental crowns. Even better, CEREC crowns give patients permanent restorations in just one day. Here’s how the process works:
Digital molds - CEREC equipment contains computer software that builds a 3D, virtual model of your smile from digital images taken by your dentist. This technology gives your dentist a better map of your teeth and oral structures than what could be achieved with standard tray impressions.
Designing your crown – By manipulating the 3D model of your smile, the design for your dental crown can be created to precisely and comfortably fit the shape of your smile.
– Once the finalized design for your crown is complete, your permanent restoration is created in under an hour. CEREC contains a milling component that creates a dental crown from a solid block of porcelain in just one hour. Your crown is then polished and stained to be a perfect match in color and texture for your natural teeth. Compare this one-day dental process to getting traditional dental crowns
, which involves shipping standard impressions to a dental lab, getting a temporary prosthetic while you wait, and then coming back to the dental office again in two weeks to receive your permanent restoration.

patients are able to receive their permanent restorations in only one hour. With our commitment to cutting-edge technology at Sienna Smiles, we have been able to reduce wait times for treatment while creating and restoring beautiful, healthy smiles.
