Ceramic Reconstruction (CEREC)
CEREC is a ceramic CAD/CAM produced restoration for teeth.
Developed by Sirona, CEREC utilizes 3D photography and CAD/CAM technology to assist a dentist in designing a virtual restoration (onlay, inlay, crown, or bridge) without taking impressions and, when combined with a milling unit, is able to build the actual restoration while you are still in the chair.
Dr. Chow was the first general dentist on the north shore with this 3-D technology.
The computer system and camera in the CEREC AC unit have been upgraded substantially from prior units, allowing even a new user to create near perfect restorations on a routine basis.
