What is CEREC restoration?

At Murwillumbah Dental we offer CEREC Restoration (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics or CEramic REConstruction), which is a computerized system that assists our professional dentists with designing, producing, and inserting individually customised metal-free ceramic restorations, using three-dimensional imaging tools, CAD/CAM modelling software and a milling unit. This can be accomplished all in a single dental visit while you are still sitting on the chair.

You no longer have to wait weeks to have treatment!

What is CEREC Restoration used for?

CEREC Restoration can be used if you require a new crown, inlay, onlay, bridge or if you have a cracked tooth, old metal fillings, dental decay on your teeth or if an old restoration needs replacing.

How does CEREC technology work?

Our dentist will take three-dimensional scans of your teeth and surrounding tissues using the highly advanced CEREC equipment and software.

Once the three-dimensional model is prepared, 3D CAD software is used to refine that model and the milling machine then creates the final restoration into the exact shape and specifications using a ceramic block.

Once the restorations are fitted on properly, it is then polished and bonded to your teeth.
