All about CEREC

What is CEREC?

Imagine a dentist's office where you go in and the doctor, ideally in collaboration with a laboratory technician, makes a new crown, bridge, ceramic filling (inlay, onlay) or dental veneer within a few hours. And while the conventional procedure would take up to two weeks to impression, fabricate, test and submit, with CEREC it can be done in one visit to the dentist.

The device itself consists of a high-end 3D scanner with perfect accuracy that the doctor can scan directly in the mouth, a powerful computer and software that allows the crown and other restorations to be modelled virtually on the computer, and a powerful milling machine that then moulds the restoration from a ceramic monoblock with excellent functional properties. The lab technician hand-finishes and fires it in a special kiln to meet even the strictest aesthetic requirements, and the dentist finishes everything so that the patient can leave with a new smile in a few hours.

How reliable are CEREC restorations compared to the traditional procedure?

Absolutely comparable. The first CEREC system was developed by scientists at the University of Zurich in Switzerland back in 1980, and since then the entire system has undergone very thorough testing in which it has proven itself, and further developments that are increasingly refining the possibilities and pushing the boundaries of modern dentistry. In addition, our clinic works with the latest CEREC Omnicam system, which, for example, eliminates the somewhat unpleasant "powdering" of patients during scanning.

The results of the cooperation between doctor and laboratory technician are absolutely comparable to the best laboratory work - with the added advantage of perfect accuracy thanks to scanning directly in the mouth.

How long does it take to make a crown?

Fabrication of a restoration (crown, veneer, bridge and more) can be achieved in just a few hours. It is important to emphasise that speed is in no way at the expense of quality. The physical properties of the ceramic monoblocks ensure excellent functionality of the restorations.

What about the aesthetics of CEREC restorations?

Aesthetics is crucial for us - we want our patients to have a beautiful smile and we want the doctors to have trouble recognizing at first glance where the restoration is actually. That's why our doctors work very closely with our in-house lab technician, who hand-colours and further finishes the milled crowns and more, so that in addition to being functional, the most stringent aesthetic criteria are met.

How much do such crowns cost?

The price of high-end work using the CEREC system is already at a similar level to work made in a laboratory. Thus, we try to be as accommodating as possible to our patients. Prices for crowns, for example, start at eight thousand crowns, but of course they can vary slightly depending on the scope, for example. In any case, however, the patient is informed in advance of the treatment plan in addition to the price plan so that he or she can make an informed decision.
