How Long Will a CEREC Restoration Take?


We know that when you have to get a dental restoration, you want the process to be as quick and painless as possible. You don’t want to come back for multiple visits, wait for weeks and wear uncomfortable temporary restorations during that time.

Fortunately, one of the many advantages to CEREC dentistry is speed. When you come in for a restoration that will be made by our CEREC machine, your needs will be filled that first time. A CEREC restoration is a one-visit process.

With CEREC, we will take digital images of your teeth and jaw, then upload the images to a computer. The photos are turned into 3-D images, which are in turn sent to a milling machine, where your custom restoration will be manufactured.

And that’s it. The entire process is completed in one visit, meaning you don’t have to return multiple times or invest several days into getting a needed dental restoration.

It’s all part of our commitment to work with your busy schedule and find solutions that are right for you. We look forward to providing you with the beautiful smile and healthy teeth you deserve.

If you live in or around Indianapolis, Indiana and need an experienced CEREC dentist, please call Dr. John Phelps today at 317-793-6133 for a consultation.
