How does CEREC work?
CEREC is a camera, computer and precision manufacturing machine all in one. Dental Zone use CEREC’S built in camera to take a picture of the damaged tooth. Using this image, the CAD (Computer Assisted Design) function of the CEREC designs the porcelain restoration. Then, the CAM (Computer Assisted Manufacturing) function mills the restoration out of a block of porcelain. We then bond the crown/filling to your tooth and are finished!
