Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramic (CERECÂ®) has revolutionized dental procedures. Traditionally, if crowns, onlays, inlays or dental veneers were required to restore damaged teeth, multiple procedures and a great deal of waiting time in-between would be inevitable. CERECÂ® creates these ceramic restorations within minutes in the dental office. This means that many treatments can be completed in just a single visit.
A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. Â A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.
