CEREC® Willits, CA

Single-visit dental restorations

CEREC - Machine(Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics), Dr. Henry Rued can design, prepare, and place a natural-looking restoration in just one visit!

The CEREC® system can be used for inlays, onlays, veneers and full crowns, and can be done in one visit. Yes, in most instances, we can replace those unsightly metal fillings with CEREC® ceramic. This material boasts the same characteristics as healthy dental enamel. Now you can have a 100% metal-free restoration that’s as beautiful and natural looking as your original tooth.

Our CEREC system combines computer-aided-design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology. Our in-house milling machine creates a tooth replacement from a single block of white, biocompatible, plaque-resistant ceramic. The process and its effect on your smile must be seen to be believed!

How does this work?

First, Dr. Henry Rued will remove decay from the tooth to be treated. Then, no-goo, digital images are captured using the advanced CEREC software. With the 3D model of your tooth on screen, your dentist creates a blueprint for your new crown and sends it to our milling machine. The restoration is created and fired in a special oven which brings out the strength and luster of the material used.
