CEREC is a method of CAD/CAM dentistry developed for creating dental restorations. Using CAD/CAM (computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing), this process allows dentists to construct, produce, and insert individual ceramic restorations directly at the point of treatment (chairside) in a single appointment, rather than over multiple appointments with labside work in between.

TECHNOLOGY: During a chairside treatment, the dentist carries out all the steps, from digital impressions and computer-based construction of the restoration to the milling process, inside their office. The dentist uses an intraoral camera (NOT INCLUDED) to take a photo of the preparation, the antagonist teeth, and the bite situation. Based on the images, the CEREC software (NOT INCLUDED) creates a virtual model of the patient’s tooth situation. The dentist uses this model to construct the tooth restoration on the screen and then passes on the finished construction within the office’s network or sends it wirelessly to a milling machine. Depending on the type of restoration, it is then milled out of a color-matched ceramic block in just 6 to 15 minutes using diamond-coated milling units. The dentist can then add the finishing touches to the restoration by painting, polishing, and glazing it, before cementing it, or adhesively integrating it, depending on the type of ceramic used.

INDICATIONS: Silicate ceramics (feldspar and glass ceramics) in particular are ideal for single tooth restorations (inlays, onlays, crowns, and veneers) in the front and on the sides of the mouth. The comparably low flexural strength of 100 to 450 megapascals makes adhesive attachment necessary. Lithium disilicate is a glass ceramic, yet exhibits the material characteristics of oxide ceramics. It is exceptionally strong and translucent. Oxide ceramics in particular are ideal for manufacturing high-strength bridge frameworks and crown copings in the front and on the sides of the mouth. Flexural strength of 300 to 600 megapascals (infiltration ceramics) or 600 to 1,300 megapascals (polycrystalline oxide ceramics) ensures a high level of long-lasting durability and breaking strength.

BENEFITS: CEREC technology makes it possible to produce and integrate ceramic restorations in a single appointment. Unlike other materials such as amalgam or gold, ceramic is more biocompatible and boasts tooth-like physical and aesthetic qualities. In addition, digital impressions are more comfortable for patients than traditional impressions.

By further developing the process, it was possible to reduce the amount of follow-up work and time-intensive occlusion adjustment that was often necessary in the past. According to studies, the ten-year lifespan of CEREC inlays polished and milled with the aid of a computer is not only significantly longer than that of gold inlays, but also exceeds that of individually laboratory-manufactured ceramic inlays. Further clinical studies reveal that the success rate of CEREC restorations is 95.5 percent following a period of nine years  and 84 percent after 18 years.

The digital mapping technology of CEREC that charts the inside of the patient’s mouth completely accurately and down to the last detail ensures that there is no issue with inaccurate dental impressions that lead the patient to experience discomfort with bulky molds and unnecessary debris in their mouth.
