If you’ve ever had a crown, veneer, bridge, or other cosmetic dentistry procedure that involved the use of ceramics, you’re likely familiar with the long wait time it takes to get your permanent ceramic dental materials back from the lab.

Thankfully, that wait is at an end. With the new CEREC® machine here at Prescott Dental Group in Prescott, Arizona, your wait for ceramics for your cosmetic dentistry needs is shortened to a single appointment.

What is CEREC?

CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, and it’s revolutionizing the way cosmetic dentistry is made available to people across the country.

How does it work?

The process is very simple. You’ll come visit Dr. Mark Curtis and Dr. Edward Reifman as you normally would for any procedure involving ceramics. A 3D model of your mouth will be generated during the exam, and Dr. Mark Curtis and Dr. Edward Reifman will create a customized ceramic on a computer to fit your mouth exactly. Then, it’s sent to the CEREC machine that mills the needed ceramics. You’ll have the crown, bridge, or veneer made and installed in just a couple of hours instead of a couple of weeks.

If you have any imperfections in your smile and you think CEREC can help you with those challenges, call us today at 928-277-4754 to see if you’re a fit to take advantage of the unique opportunities CEREC gives dental patients.
