The Value of CEREC

The Value of CEREC

Patients who need a new crown, bridge or other restoration of a broken tooth or teeth may be candidates for a superior dental technology called CEREC.

Dr. Orobitg and his staff use CEREC’s 3D photography and CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing) technology to create precisely designed, color-matched and highly durable ceramic crowns, inlays, onlays and bridges, usually while a patient is still in the chair… all within a single appointment!

CEREC is also great for repairing cracked teeth, and replacing old, unsightly metal or failing restorations. The ceramic material is natural-looking, bio-compatible with tissue in the mouth, non-abrasive and resists plaque. The CEREC process protects and preserves more of a tooth’s own structural integrity. And CEREC restorations are affordable, safe, beautiful, and save time and inconvenience.

The 2 benefits of a CEREC

  1. Lifespan 

    Since they are made from a single piece of ceramic material, under normal circumstances CEREC restorations should last for years to come.

  2. Natural Look 

    Older metal-based fillings and restorations often left patients with visible markers where natural teeth ended and fillings began. CEREC provides you with a consistent look that masks distinguishing features between the tooth and the restoration. Coloring can also be adjusted to match perfectly.

With more than 20 years of clinical research and documentation behind CEREC, CEREC bridges, crowns, or fillings may be the best choice for you. To find out if this is your best option, contact Dentist Eddie C. Orobitg, DMD at 352-702-4147 to schedule your appointment today.
