Cerec Technology

Cerec machines have revolutionized dental veneer technology, enabling dentists to create and set perfect veneers in one short session!

Dental Clinic Lebanon by Ferrari Dental Clinic is proud to present our in house Cerec CAD CAM machine.

Using this technology, we can produce any kind of tooth restoration. In about one hour, chipped and discolored teeth can be repaired using porcelain crowns and veneers without the need for impressions. Broken down molars can be restored using inlays and onlays, meaning unsightly silver fillings are a thing of the past.

How does this CEREC technology work?

CEREC is a revolutionary system that enables your dentist to design, fabricate and fit a new crown, veneer, onlay or inlay in a single visit, a procedure that would normally take at least two weeks, if not more!
Your tooth is first prepared in the normal way done before fitting a crown or a veneer. At this point, instead of using "dental putty" to take an impression of your tooth, a digital image is taken using a special camera. This image is then converted into a 3D computerized model of your tooth, which is used as a guide to design your new restoration. Once we are happy with the newly designed tooth, this data is sent to an onsite milling machine, which fabricates your new tooth from a high-quality ceramic block. The ceramic blocks come in a wide variety of shades and colors, and your tooth will be selected to match your surrounding teeth. Once the crown or veneer has been milled, we can also characterize it and stain it to match your surrounding teeth, before either polishing it or glazing it in a furnace. Your new restoration will then be cemented into place.

Benefits of Cerec made Restorations:

There are several advantages to having treatment with CEREC over conventional, laboratory- made restorations:

  • Everything is carried out in a single visit
  • Only one set of local anesthetic injections
  • Your dentist is in complete control of the final result
  • No temporary restorations

  • What is the difference between conventional veneers and Cerec veneers?
    Usually, porcelain veneers are placed over a minimum of two visits. Each one requiring injections, an impression is taken and sent to the laboratory and temporary crowns are placed between sessions.

    Dental Clinic Lebanon by Ferrari Dental Clinic headed by Dr. Habib Zarifeh is one of few cosmetic dental clinics that have invested in CAM/CAD technology, which can custom-produce high-quality ceramic veneers on-site. This CEREC technology enables us to offer single-visit, same-day ceramic veneers which are fitted within an hour!

    Cerec Prepless veneers

    Cerec CAD/CAM Prepless Veneers are changing cosmetic dentistry!

    Cerec Prepless Veneers are an exciting, relatively new way of giving you a perfect smile. They consist of custom- made ultra-thin shells that can be placed directly over existing teeth without removing any tooth enamel. Placing a traditional dental veneer often requires the removal of healthy enamel in order to create space for the veneer.

    Dental Clinic Lebanon by Ferrari Dental Clinic is one of the first clinics in the Middle East that offer Cerec Prepless veneers. Our main goal is the preservation of natural healthy tooth structure using the most recent in dental technology.

    What are the advantages of Cerec CAD CAM Dentistry?
    With CAD CAM Dentistry, Our patients will have the privilege to complete their restorations within a single visit, being able to limit time spent at the dental office, avoiding the inconvenience of temporary restorations, and enjoying the benefits of the highly aesthetic and long lasting, durable well- fitted restorations.

    What is so special about CEREC prepless Veneers?
    Like LUMINEERS, CAD/CAM Prepless Veneers are just another way we that we make dental care as conservative as possible!

    The BIG difference is that these Veneers are prepared using the CAD CAM Technology which means that after teeth preparation, a 3D impression is taken and the veneers are prepared using the revolutionary CEREC / CAD CAM Technology.

    • No impressions,
    • No temporaries,
    • No Numbing,
    • No Drilling of your teeth,

    The process of designing the shape and color of the veneers is supervised by your dentist the whole time. The result is an extremely precise, natural looking, durable restoration!

    CAD CAM Zirconium Crowns

    CEREC CAD CAM developed by Sirona, Germany is the world's most advanced and widely used CAD CAM system in dentistry for fabrication of metal free Ceramics and Zirconia prostheses.

    Zirconia frame-works for Ceramic Prostheses (Metal-Free Ceramic Bridges) can be milled for high quality Crouwns!

    This breakthrough technology is now available at Dental Clinic Lebanon by Ferrari Dental Clinic!

    How does it work?
    CEREC 3D uses CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing) technology, incorporating a 3D camera or 3D optical scanner, computer and milling machine in one instrument.

    The BLUE CAM camera integrated in our dental clinic is used to take an accurate picture of the prepared tooth. This optical impression is transferred and displayed on a color computer screen, where the dentist uses CAD technology to design the restoration. Then CAM takes over and automatically creates the restoration while the patient waits. Cerec 3D computer software then is used to design the Ceramic prosthesis and the connected Milling Machine fabricates the work in minutes.

    Zirconia Prosthetic Bridge frameworks are then sintered for supreme strength and then layered with Ceramic over several hours for delivering superlative dental Ceramics.

    The final scheduled procedure involves bonding of the Dental Crown / Bridge.

    CEREC Zirconia crowns are superior in their esthetics, strength, biocompatibility, precision and long term durability than conventional restorative materials.

    The Cerec Technology:
    Cerec uses all ceramic materials to provide an esthetic and functional dental restoration. CEREC is not only used for crowns, it can be used to create bright and natural looking veneers, and prepless veneers, inlays and onlays.
