CEREC 3-D Technology
What is CEREC 3-D?
CEREC 3-D is a high-tech instrument that helps dentists restore damaged teeth. The new "what you see is what you get" software makes designing the perfect restoration fun and easy.

How does CEREC 3-D work?
First, Dr. Wexler prepares the damaged tooth by painting a thin layer of reflective powder directly on the tooth's surface. Using a special camera, Dr. Wexler then takes a picture of the tooth. This eliminates the need to take an impression, which is often messy and uncomfortable, and send the impression to the lab. As the design of the restoration evolves on screen, the dentist views it with a full 360-degree perspective. Free-form editing in three-dimensional realism makes designing the restoration intuitive and precise.

What kinds of procedures can the CEREC 3-D perform?

• Partials & Full Crowns
• Veneers
• All single-tooth restorations

What are other advantages CEREC 3-D offers?

•  The restoration is performed in a single session, generally not longer than 2 hours
•  No lab impression is necessary
•  The restoration is natural looking, as it is made out of tooth colored ceramic material (no silver colored fillings!)
•  Ceramic material is biocompatible, high-grade, anti-abrasive, and plaque resistant
•  Allows us to save more of the healthy tooth
•  Extremely precise

Dr. Wexler is one of the foremost authorities in the world on the CEREC technique. In addition to directing the CEREC program at Columbia University, he moderates the CEREC forum on which has a membership of 35,000 dental professionals from all over the world. Dr. Wexler has developed several original techniques for the CEREC machine and has published articles on computerized dentistry in professional literature. (INSERT LINKS TO LITERATURE/ARTICLES)
