CEREC Technology: How it Works

In the past, just about any type of dental work required a “lab step” throughout the process of getting veneers, crowns, bridges, etc. because they had to be manufactured by a third-party dental lab.

Obviously, this meant that treatments required multiple visits, which wasn’t ideal, but was the acceptable norm.
That’s no longer the case.

Longleaf Dental has invested in a CEREC machine, which enables us to provide same-day dental restorations. It also eliminates outdated dental materials, such as gold or amalgam silver fillings.

With CEREC, our dentists take a digital impression of your teeth, which formulates a computer-based reconstruction, including the actual delivery of the finishing product (milling) all on the same day.

CEREC technology has revolutionized dental treatment by ensuring that your dental restoration can be done in a single appointment, making patients at Longleaf Dental very happy!
