CEREC Dentistry in Raleigh, NC
Every year, hundreds of thousands of dental patients forgo restoration treatment of their teeth in order to remove tooth decay. Some of the procedures typically performed include fillings, crowns, replacement implants, and veneers. Most of these procedures require multiple visits to your dentist to diagnose and treat tooth decay, with additional appointments to fabricate and place new restorations.
These tedious visits cost insurance companies, dentists, and patients more money and time than anyone would like to spend. Luckily, advancements in technology have resulted in a new approach to addressing tooth decay requiring less time, less maintenance, and resulting in a solution unlike current conventional practices: the CEREC procedure.

What is the CEREC Procedure?
Drs. Abernethy, Sonner & Wells share a joined passion for only the highest quality of dentistry on your journey towards optimal oral health.
The CEREC procedure is a method used by dentists to digitally construct replacement tooth options, eliminating the need for some traditional fillings and crowns. Used by dentists since 1987, the CEREC method is a minimally invasive system that uses optical impression technology to accurately scan the teeth in need of replacement.
After thorough measurements are taken, data is used to construct a ceramic filling or crown matching the exact shape and shade of the tooth with decay. Once placed by our dentist, the ceramic replacement bonds to the tooth without leaving gaps for decay to build behind or around it. The patient leaves with little to no discomfort and without the worry of the ceramic replacement wearing down or failing.
