Although the CEREC® Prime Scan is new, we have been using it for years. CEREC® stands for “Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics.” The system uses computer-aided design (CAD) technology and software to design and create permanent dental restorations like crowns, veneers, onlays, and more.
In the past, making single tooth restorations required multiple visits, but with CEREC® it takes only minutes. Our patients can get a crown, for example, in only one visit!
Not only does the Prime Scan help us provide a better dental experience for our patients, but it also helps us deliver the best possible results with the highest quality restorations that look and feel natural. Here is what you can expect when you make an appointment: 1- Scans are quick, easy, and pain free. 2-Since most restorations can be done in a single visit, there is typically no need to apply a temporary. 3-You get beautiful, accurate, and well-fitting porcelain restorations. 4-We will not need to make as many adjustments when we actually place your restoration (if any are necessary at all).
