In a world of same day shipping and same day photo prints, your dental restorations can now be same day services too! This is thanks to CEREC® milling machines and digital imaging technology. CEREC® is short for “ceramic reconstruction”. This technology has been around since the early 1980s and it’s only gotten better with time, for both dentists and patients.
CEREC® machines use CAD/CAM technology – computer aided design/computer aided manufacturing. They allow your Midland dentist to make and install a dental crown – and other restorations – all in the same visit. This is very good news if you have a chipped tooth or very bad cavity that needs to be treated immediately.
So what exactly is CEREC®? How does it work? And more importantly, what does it do for you? Dr. Bell from Health Centered Dentistry explains more below.

We want to see your smile returned to full health and beauty as soon as you need it – today!
