CEREC in dentistry is the short name for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, or CEramic REConstruction. CEREC uses CAD/CAM (computer aided design/computer aided manufacturing) technology to manufacture restorations quickly and with precision.Cerec uses 3D imaging software to fabricate crowns, inlays and onlays, veneers, dental implants, dentures and some orthodontic appliances.

  • The CAD/CAM technology allows for same-day delivery of treatments like crowns.As treatment can often be accomplished in one visit, it saves patients from multiple visits to the dental clinic/hospital.
  • Dentists don’t need to stock up on impression materials.
  • Eliminates the need for a temporary restoration as the treatment is completed in the dental clinic/hospital in a single visit..
  • There is no need for dentists to rely on external factors like dental laboratories delaying the fabrication of the restoration and hence ensure prompt treatment delivery to patients.
  • The restoration is typically long lasting as the material used is standardised.
  • CAD/CAM restorations usually perform and fit very well due to accuracy of the machine.

CEREC is not offered by all dentists as the machine is costly,needs good training to use and confidence of the dentist to trust it over other traditional technologies.
