CEREC

Dr. McGrane is your local CEREC® dentist for single-visit tooth restorations.

What is CEREC?

CEREC is CAD/CAM technology for restoring damaged teeth, and this restoration can be completed in a single visit to the doctor's office. It makes your teeth stronger and more beautiful — all while keeping your teeth looking natural. The restoration is metal-free and the high grade ceramic material is bio compatible with the natural tissue found in your mouth.

The CEREC Process

First, Dr. McGrane will meet with you to discuss the details of the procedure. During the procedure, he will apply a thin layer of reflective powder onto your tooth and will use a special camera to take a photo of your tooth. Using Computer Aided Design, the photo serves as a "map" to design your tooth's restoration. Then, CEREC will use a pair of diamond burs to create your porcelain restoration from a ceramic block. Finally, the ceramic restoration is bonded to your tooth using state-of-the-art adhesive dentistry. Using this high tech approach Dr. McGrane doesn't require an impression in your mouth or a temporary crown!
