CEREC Technology

Home 9 CEREC Technology

CEREC, also known as Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, is an intelligent technology that allows cosmetic dentists to take digital impressions of your teeth. This is done to create custom dental crowns and bond them into place all in just one day.  Porcelain crowns can help if you have chipped, fractured, decayed, or damaged teeth. 

They can also improve the natural appearance of your smile.

What Are the Pros and Cons of CEREC Crowns?

CEREC crowns are a state-of-the-art solution that offers benefits such as:

  • Strengthening weak teeth
  • Fewer visits to the dentist
  • Repairing chips, tooth decay, and cracks
  • A precise fit with genuine results
  • Digital impressions resulting in no need for uncomfortable or messy molds
  • Color-matching for a seamless blend with your surrounding teeth

While the pros of CEREC technology sound great, you may be wondering about the cons. However, the good news is that there is basically no downside to this treatment when performed by a skilled dentist.

What Does the CEREC Procedure Involve?

The very first step in the process to achieve your dream smile is to prepare the teeth or tooth in question. From there, your dentist will capture a digital impression of the tooth that will be used to mold your crown with a 3D printer. Using the CEREC digital scanning technology, dentists are able to create crowns that perfectly fit your natural teeth.


Much like traditional dental crowns, CEREC crowns can last for many years, even decades! As long as you take good care of them, they will last for a long time.

While CEREC crowns are incredibly strong, they are not completely impervious to harm. That is why you will need to be cautious to ensure they last. Keep your at-home dental hygiene regimen on track and visit your dentist regularly to get the best out of your CEREC crowns.

How Much Do CEREC Crowns Cost?

CEREC procedures are customized for each patient based on their individual needs. This means that the final price for CEREC procedures is not the same for every single patient. Keep in mind though, CEREC crowns are often covered fully, or at least partially, by many dental insurance plans. 

CEREC has been a beneficial treatment for many people. For more information about this wonderful procedure, schedule your appointment with Beverly Hills Dentistry today!
