The Cerec 3D dental procedure is a chair-side procedure that creates a visual image of what the teeth will look like once they are restored. You will be able to watch special software being used to determine a restoration design for your teeth and create an exact replica of them.  After the image scanning takes places a block of ceramic is molded into the shape of your teeth in about 10 minutes time.  Once the tooth is carved out it is used as a n adhesive to bond it to your own tooth.
