A revolutionary dental technology, CEREC® stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. It allows ceramic, or porcelain, dental restorations to be made right in our dental office during your appointment. In the past, after impressions or molds were taken, it would often take weeks for a dental laboratory to make your inlays, onlays, crowns, bridges, or veneers. With CEREC technology in Oceanside, California, dental restorations are constructed, produced, and placed in a single appointment.
Our skilled dental team will work with you to determine if CEREC technology is the best option for your smile. During a CEREC treatment, our expert cosmetic dentist, Dr. Hargas, will first clean and prepare the tooth to receive the dental restoration by removing all decay and damage. The CEREC camera will then take high-quality images so Dr. Hargas or Dr. Linn can design and personalize your restoration to fit your bite. Once a block of ceramic has been chosen to match your natural tooth color, CEREC will produce the full restoration in as little as 15 minutes.
At Oceanview Dental, we offer CEREC as part of our commitment to utilize the latest dental technology available. For more information on CEREC and how we can transform your smile in just one visit to our office, contact us today. We look forward to caring for your smile!
