Ceramic Reconstruction step by step

The defective filling and decay is removed.

  • An optical 3D image is acquired with a small camera, directly in your mouth.

  • The restoration is created on the screen using the image data.

  • Diamond coated instruments mill a ceramic block that reproduce the design.

  • This is accomplished during a single appointment using Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAD/CAM).

  • After polishing, the new restoration fits precisely.

  • A specialized bonding material is used to bond the crown to the tooth.  

  • Polishing or glazing ensures a pleasantly smooth and natural feel.
    The color and appearance make the special ceramic material blend with your tooth.

  • Perfectly bonded porcelain ensures an extremely long life for your teeth.

  • Maximum strength, great looks!

Fillings (inlays/onlays)

After decay and old filling material is removed...

The individually manufactured ceramic will be fitted exactly.

Depending on severity, the whole procedure will last between one and two hours.


For more heavily compromised teeth, a traditional treatment has been a crown restoration, which can take several separate appointments.

Using the CEREC method, crown restoration is completed in a single appointment. No impressions, no temporary crowns - no need for a second injection.

A treatment time of one to two hours is normal.


Malpositioned and discolored teeth can be restored with porcelain veneers.

Your tooth is adjusted and a thin layer of porcelain is bonded securely to your tooth.

Perfect looks, perfect fit make a wonderful, natural smile - all in a single appointment.
