CEREC – Ceramic Reconstruction

For many dental patients, the most frustrating element of having restorative dental work done is waiting for their crowns, veneers, or inlays to be developed at an off-site lab.

This means more than one dental appointment, more than one procedure, and potentially a great deal of time in between the visits where you’re still living with a damaged and incomplete smile.
