Cerec

In 2017 we added the new technology of CEREC to our options for white fillings and crowns.  With Cerec the cavity is scanned with a 3D camera and the filling is milled out of a solid ceramic block.

This allows for much stronger more accurate fillings that have no gaps, voids and bubbles, or shape discrepancies compared to traditional direct filling placement resin fillings.
