Summit Dental offers our patients CEREC® technology. CEREC® is a computer-based CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing) system that allows your dentist to prepare, fabricate and cement your crown in only one visit.
Using the high-resolution CEREC® 3D measuring camera, your dentist can design your crown which is then created from a high strength, the long-lasting ceramic-porcelain material in our in-office milling chamber. All this in only one appointment!
With CEREC® technology we are often able to replace missing or damaged tooth structure while maintaining as much of your existing tooth structure as possible. The CEREC® 3D measuring camera scans the prepared tooth in just a few seconds; this eliminates the need for messy impressions. There is no need for temporary restorations because the restoration is fabricated right away. There is no longer any need to wait for days on end until the restoration is finished and return for a second appointment to have the crown cemented.
