CEREC is an acronym for chairside economical restoration of esthetic ceramics. Translated, it means that a dentist can economically restore damaged teeth in a single appointment using a high-quality ceramic material that matches the natural colour of other teeth. With over 7,000,000 restorations placed since the introduction of CEREC technology in 1987, CEREC is one of the most researched restorative systems in the market, with documented success rate of more than 90% after 10 years. It uses a sophisticated combination of high-tech precision machinery and computer technology to produce custom restorations that include 3/4 crowns, full crowns, veneers, inlays and onlays. The CEREC 3D system allows the dentist to take digital impression with 100% control of the margin fit, aesthetics, proximal contacts and the occlusal surface. With ongoing research and development, the CEREC system has earned its role in dental history as the technology that gives patients one of the finest restorations in the world in only one visit.
