What is CEREC?

In our efforts to serve Framingham, Boston, Southborough, Hopkinton, and the rest of the MetroWest area in the best way possible, we make it our goal to stay at the very top of the “technological game” – making sure that we are always on the cutting edge of dental technology. This takes on a lot of different forms, but one of the most exciting forms this cutting-edge dental technology takes on – that is, one of the services we offer at Framingham Cosmetic Dentist that is among the most exciting – is CEREC. But as excited as we get about CEREC, we have found that a lot of dental patients do not get nearly as excited, as they are instead simply wondering, “What is CEREC?”

To put it plainly: CEREC stands for “Ceramic Reconstruction,” and it is a sophisticated (read: cutting-edge!) way in which to design and create high-quality, metal-free dental restorations. Best of all, CEREC is a one-visit appointment.

That’s right: one visit. That’s it!

This means that – with the help of 3D photography and CAD/CAM technology – we are able to design virtual restorations without having to take an impression, which means you can receive onlays, inlays, crowns, or bridges that will ultimately transform your smileā€¦all in a single visit.

Single-visit dental procedures; what could be better than that?


Benefits of CEREC?

The benefits of CEREC are clear and simple: with CEREC, you can enjoy same-day restorations (again: one visit to the dentist, and that’s it!), and the cost is often lower than it would be otherwise. What’s more, the restorations created with CEREC look absolutely outstanding, they last a long time, and they are metal-free.

In all, you spend less money, make fewer trips to see us, and get a beautiful smile. What’s not to love!


Is CEREC Right For Me?

If you think you might be in need of a new inlay, onlay, bridge, or crown – or if you have been told already that you need a new inlay, onlay, bridge, or crown – CEREC may be the right choice for you.

You may also be a candidate for CEREC if you have old failing restorations, if you have a cracked tooth, or if your teeth are damaged in some other way.

You can even switch to CEREC if you are wanting to replace old, metal restorations in your mouth with newer, biocompatible restorations.

Pretty much, if you need dental restorations, CEREC is a fantastic option.


If you are looking for Framingham CEREC or Boston CEREC, book an appointment with us – and let us take care of you in one trip and send you back into the world with a beautiful new smile!
