What Does CEREC Stand For?

CEREC stands for “Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramic.” Don’t let the complex language confuse you. It’s quite simple. CEREC is a method of using CAD/CAM (Computer-Aided Design/Manufacturing) to create dental crowns in just a few minutes at Tuttle Family Dentistry. 

Using CEREC, you can get a crown in just one day. This is in contrast with lab-made crowns, which must be built at an outside facility and sent back to our office for final placement. This requires at least 2 appointments and includes a waiting period of up to 2-3 weeks. 

With CEREC, you avoid waiting entirely, and you can completely restore a damaged or decayed tooth in just a single 1-2 hour appointment. Contact us now to schedule an appointment and get started right away.

Immediate Treatment For Damaged Teeth

With CEREC technology, we can provide immediate care, which is particularly good if you have a dental emergency. If you break a tooth or lose a crown, you can just give us a call at (719) 282-6636, schedule an appointment, and restore your smile immediately. This gives you relief from your pain and discomfort and helps prevent further complications.

Enhanced Convenience & Comfort

There’s no need for messy dental impressions using putty since a 3D scanner is used to take digital impressions of your tooth. The CEREC process is also much more convenient if you have a busy schedule since it takes just a single 1-2 hour appointment instead of two appointments over a period of several weeks.

Sedation Available For All Patients

Although CEREC crowns are faster, more comfortable, and less invasive than lab-made crowns, we recognize that some people may still be nervous about getting a crown. That’s why we offer sedation for all of our patients. 

Our options included gas-based nitrous oxide (laughing gas) sedation and pill-based oral conscious sedation. Each type of sedation has different advantages and drawbacks, and you will need to consult with our team to discuss your health history before being approved for sedation.
