CEREC Q&A

What is CEREC?

Chairside economical restoration of esthetic ceramics (CEREC) is a state-of-the-art method for reconstructing damaged teeth.

Dr. Hoang can restore damaged or decayed teeth in just one visit. Using CEREC, he also ensures your smile looks natural and the restorations will last.

Am I a candidate for CEREC?

CEREC services might be right for you if you have damaged or decayed teeth that affect the aesthetics of your smile or the function of your teeth.

Dr. Hoang can use the CEREC system for:

Crowns

A crown is a cap that fits over your natural tooth to address damage or decay. A crown also provides stability for your teeth and can improve the appearance of your smile.

Bridges

A bridge is a prosthetic device that can fill in gaps left by missing teeth. Dr. Hoang can anchor the bridge into place with your natural teeth, nearby crowns, or dental implants.

Veneers

Veneers (laminates) are thin shells that Dr. Hoang bonds to the front surface of your teeth. The shells instantly improve the shape, size, and color of your tooth and also provide added stability.

Inlays and onlays

An inlay is a restoration that fits the center of your tooth, and an onlay refers to a restoration that addresses the cusp of your tooth.

Inlays and onlays are more extensive than dental fillings but require less work than caps and crowns. Dr. Hoang bonds the restoration to the surface of your damaged tooth and ensures that the color of the restoration matches your natural teeth.

New and replacement fillings

If you have gold or silver fillings that are visible when you smile, Dr. Hoang can use CEREC fillings to replace them and make your smile more attractive.

What’s involved in CEREC treatments?

CEREC uses all-ceramic materials that are both durable and compatible with your teeth. The materials are safe and resistant to wear. Using this material, Dr. Hoang is also able to save more of your natural tooth structure.

During your appointment for a CEREC treatment, Dr. Hoang performs a comprehensive evaluation of your teeth to determine what type of restoration you need. He uses a specialized 3D camera to take an optical impression of your teeth and then transfers the images to a computer.

Using computer-aided design (CAD) technology, Dr. Hoang can create a precise restoration while considering every detail of your dental health. He sends the specifications to the in-office milling machine, which creates a custom, color-matched restoration in just 20 minutes.

Dr. Hoang fits the restoration and polishes it before bonding it in place. The entire process takes 1-2 hours depending on your needs.
