What is CEREC?
CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. Using CAD (computer-aided design) software along with a camera and milling device, CEREC is a proven system for creating customized restorations such as veneers, onlays, crowns and more. The advantage of the CEREC system is that single tooth restorations can be produced in just minutes, rather than requiring the patient to return to the office for multiple visits. CEREC’s precise digital imaging eradicates the messy, uncomfortable process of making physical impressions of the teeth.
What is the CEREC Prime Scan?
As a top of the line digital scanner, the CEREC Prime Scan machine is able to create flawlessly accurate 3D digital images of the teeth without any of the mess created by conventional trays that require you to bite into them and wait for the goop to harden. With the Prime Scan, all that is needed to make a detailed 3D image is a quick scan of your mouth using an inconspicuous handheld camera.
The CEREC Prime Scan is faster, smarter and more precise than its 3D dental scanner predecessors, as well as being easier to use. It effortlessly executes the production of crowns, bridges, implants and onlays in minutes, so patients can enjoy a stress-free, seamless experience without discomfort or annoyance.
What are the benefits of the Prime Scan machine?
- Creates crowns, onlays, veneers and implants in a single office visit
- Creates SureSmile aligners and night guards in a single visit
- Precise, detailed and rapid
- Helps quickly diagnose cavities, TMJ, sleep apnea, bone cancer, fractures and cracks in the teeth

Who is the ideal candidate for the procedure?
If you are someone who feels anxious going to the dentist, the CEREC Prime Scan is an excellent tool for helping to set you at ease. Rather than undergoing a gag reflex or experiencing discomfort with the traditional method of making restorations, the Prime Scan allows you to sit back and relax while your mouth is scanned with a small, largely unnoticeable device. Instead of having to come into the office multiple times, you can have your restorations fitted and completed within just one session, relieving you of the hassle and dread you formerly associated with a dental visit.
