CEREC – Same-Day Crowns North Miami Beach


Among the high-tech instruments that Dr. Alvarez uses to restore damaged teeth is the CEREC* system. This system uses CAD/CAM technology, integration of a camera, computer and a milling machine. The CEREC* system enables ceramic tooth restorations to be performed chair side. The ceramic restoration is manufactured right in the office while the patient waits – eliminating the need for temporary crowns and a second appointment. CEREC* restorations are extremely accurate, very durable, and made with tooth-colored ceramic. The procedure allows Dr. Alvarez to treat patients more conservatively, (than modern bonding techniques) allowing healthier tooth structure to be saved.

Advantages of CEREC* Restorations include:

  • Ceramic restorations done same-day. Multiple visits not required
  • No need for impression and send it to a lab
  • Ceramic properties and bonding technique eliminate sensitivity problams
  • Restorations are ceramics not composite plastic fillings
  • The ceramic material is very strong, anti-abrasive, and plaque-resistant
  • Extremely high-quality restoration helps protect natural teeth
  • Very precise process ensures ideal fit of restoration
