What is the CEREC technology?

CEREC actually stands for Chair-side Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. The CAD/CAM CEREC technology permits Dr. Fixari to utilize his skills and expertise to create and place beautiful dental crowns within the same appointment—something that not all dental offices can say!

  • Ceramic restorations can be created with the use of this 3D photography and computer technology– all it takes is one office visit and one hour of your time!
  • CEREC crowns eliminate the need to have temporary fillings or crowns.
  • By using CEREC computer technology, patients do not have to come back for a second office visit. That means you don’t have to receive anesthesia two times!
  • Porcelain restorations (porcelain crowns, inlays, and onlays) can be created when using CEREC.
  • Dr. Fixari perfected his technique that he is able to complete most CEREC crowns within 70 minutes– from design to milling to placing the permanent crown.

To create natural-looking restorations, Dr. Fixari pays acute attention to the following characteristics of your teeth:

  • teethColor
  • Bite
  • Shape
  • Length

Once he considers these facets, Dr. Fixari plans and fabricates the restorations for a precise, comfortable fit. Several of our patients can actually attest to the natural beauty and durability of the CEREC crowns and restorations he places!
