Sirona CEREC AC 3-D CAD/CAM Technology
CEREC is the unique CAD/CAM system for patient individual all-ceramic restorations in one single appointment.
This high-technology, computerized system enables us to make ceramic inlays, onlays, and crowns - in one office visit in many cases. Using a blue CAM video camera, a computer, an integrated milling unit, we can prepare, fabricate, and cement tooth-colored ceramic inlays, onlays, and crowns. Complex cases may require more than one visit. The entire procedure can be completed in 60-90 minutes.
Using the most advanced technology in tooth restoration, the Sirona CEREC AC CAD-CAM computer can fabricate porcelain (metal free) inlays, onlays and crowns in one treatment appointment, in most cases. This technology produces conservative, durable and esthetic restorations in one to two hours in a single appointment.
After the inlay is fabricated, it is bonded to the tooth creating a final restoration that almost attains the strength of the natural tooth, according to research studies.
