Abstract

The CEREC system offers the dentist a conservative means to esthetically restore posterior teeth in a single patient visit. It uses advanced restorative materials. It does not require traditional impression techniques, temporaries or outside laboratories. Seven-year recalls in Europe and five-year recalls in the United States establish a firm basis for predicting continued clinical success of these restorations. The technology is currently being taught in 13 dental schools in the United States. Four schools are continuing clinical research.
