When using CEREC, the process utilises advanced softward to facilitate good crown or veneer design and fabrication:
The tooth is prepared as normal
Instead of taking traditional impressions using putty, a digital image is taken using a special camera
The CEREC software converts the digital image into a 3D computerised model
The CEREC software is then used to design the new tooth/teeth to fit precisely
A ceramic colour is chosen to match the patient's surrounding teeth as closely as possible
When the design has been approved, this data is sent to a milling machine, which fabricates your new tooth from a high-quality ceramic block
Milling process takes between 5-30 minutes depending on the tooth and technology used
The tooth may then be colour-adjusted using a light stain for the best possible match
Finally the new tooth is polished or glazed before being cemented into place on the prepared tooth or implant

I can't thank TJ and Torjus enough. I know having an award winning lab and a dentist on the same site has given me exactly what I wanted. They have given me my life back and I can't recommend his studio and skill high enough.
