What is CEREC?

cerecgreenresizewebCEREC is an acronym for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, or CERamic REConstruction. Translated, it means that we can restore damaged teeth in a single appointment using a high-quality ceramic material that matches the natural color of other teeth.

How does it work?

CEREC uses CAD/CAM (Computer Aided  Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing)  technology, incorporating a camera, computer and milling machine in one  instrument.  Dr. Kalmanovich uses a special  camera to take an accurate picture of  the  damaged  tooth. This optical impression is transferred and displayed on a computer screen, where  he uses CAD technology to design the  restoration. Then CAM takes over and automatically creates the restoration while you wait. Finally,  Dr. Kalmanovich bonds the new restoration to the surface of the old tooth. The whole  process takes about one hour.

What does this innovation mean for you?

A tooth-colored restoration means no  more silver fillings  discoloring smiles.  The filling  is natural-looking,  compatible with  tissue in the mouth,  anti-abrasive and plaque-  resistant. Because we no longer need to create temporaries or take  impressions and send them to  a lab, the traditional second visit  has been eliminated.

CEREC
has two decades of clinical research and documentation to support the  technology. The restorations have been proven precise, safe and effective.

What Our Patients Say About CEREC

2015_lbhr_beauty_img27

“Wow! This dentist has latest technology in his office! I got a crown, and all in 1 office visit. The crown was made right there in the office.”– Carla W.

“Moving to So Cal from the Midwest, I dreaded having to find a new dentist…. I went in knowing that I was going to have to have an old crown replaced.  I was incredibly surprised that my old crown was removed and my new crown was put on in the same appointment! I was impressed that I could see Dr. K. virtually making my ‘new tooth’ before permanently putting it on; how progressive!  Dr. K. and his staff are all extremely detailed, knowledgable, caring and good at their craft!  I am extremely happy to find Dr. Alex Kalmanovich and his staff!” –Pipere S.
