CEREC

CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramic. That’s a lot of words, but it is what it sounds like: an affordable way of creating a variety of dental prosthetics using digital modeling and CAD/CAM dentistry (Computer-Aided Design/Computer-Aided Manufacturing).⁠

CEREC works something like this. During an office visit, Dr. Linkoff will take a digital scan of the tooth or teeth in question. This three-dimensional digital image will in turn be used to make another three-dimensional digital model, this time of the desired prosthesis. That design will be sent to a machine that automatically creates the prosthetic. That will happen in-house at your dentist’s office, compared to the old way of taking an impression and sending it to a lab. ⁠

It’s generally a fairly speedy affair, and your new prosthetic will then be implanted appropriately by Dr. Linkoff. CEREC and CAD/CAM can be used together to create a variety of dental prosthetics, including crowns, inlays and onlays, bridges, veneers, dental implants, dentures, and even some orthodontic appliances. The speed and affordability of CEREC make it a huge step forward in how these things are done. ⁠

So what the means is - same day crowns!
