The difference between CEREC veneers and conventional ones is that the CEREC machine is in office. Your teeth are prepped, scanned and created in office in just one visit. We do not require the messy molds that most people have a hard time sitting through. Most tradition veneers require not only uncomfortable impressions, but those typically then have to be sent to a lab, which creates waiting and future appointments. CEREC is a high-tech machine that works in conjunction with an in house milling machine to mill your porcelain veneers. The steps are quite simple and happen quickly. We scan the area in which the veneers are to be placed. This scan takes 3D digital pictures of the area and brings it in to the computer where the design phase begins. Your dentist will design a perfectly color-matched, size, and shape veneer that will feel and function like your natural teeth. Once the design is complete, the CEREC machine mills a block of porcelain and creates your new veneers. After this is completed, your veneers are ready to go and are bonded on to your prepped teeth. Within one appointment, you will walk out of our office with beautiful new veneers that look like your own natural teeth.
