WHAT IS CEREC®?
Very few of us have perfect teeth, free of decay, or any history of fillings. You can probably see a filling or two in your own mouth, but a filling does just that — “fill” a cavity, or hole, in your tooth left from the excavation of decayed tooth structure. In many cases, those fillings are made of metal material and can go bad, weaken the tooth, or get additional decay under or around it. Dr. Chiou uses CEREC®, a modern method used to not only replace old fillings, but restore any tooth decay, returning the tooth to its natural strength and beauty. Better yet, the whole process for producing new crowns is done with all-ceramic tooth colored materials in just a single appointment!
CEREC® is an advanced dental restorative system that allows your dentist to restore decayed teeth, place crowns, remove defective amalgam fillings, or place cosmetic veneers in just one appointment. This allows you to have the highest quality, most lifelike dental restorations in just one visit to the dentist…in, out, and on with your busy life.
