Dr. McKinley and Dr. Holloway are proud to make the use of CEREC® in Shelby Township, Michigan.The use of Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics (CEREC) technology allows our dentists to provide same day restorations like dental crowns, dental inlays and onlays, and dental veneers. This is in contrast to traditional dental restorations, which take at least two dental appointments to place. Traditional dental restorations are made in a dental lab, while CEREC restorations are constructed in our dental office.
To produce a CEREC restoration, our dentists will first take a 3D digital impression of your tooth and the teeth on the opposing jaw. This digital impression is sent directly to a computer, where CEREC software allows our dentists to quickly design your dental restoration. The software analyzes the 3D image and calculates restoration proposals for our dentists. After your dental restoration is designed, our dentists will construct it using a milling machine. The milling process only takes a few minutes. Your resulting dental restoration will be durable and will be very aesthetic. Our dentists will permanently cement your dental restoration in place.
