Dr. Kim is proud to introduce CEREC® technology to his high-tech Tucker dental practice. Using this state-of-the-art system, Dr. Kim is able to create and place crowns, inlays, onlays, and veneers right here in our office—and all in the very same visit! Best of all, CEREC eliminates the need for plastic temporaries while your restorations are sent off to a lab, a process that can take weeks and require a series of dental appointments. You can get the dental treatment you need, then get back to your busy life.
How Does CEREC Work?
At the beginning of your appointment, Dr. Kim will prepare your tooth for restoration and take a photo of it using a special digital camera. CEREC’s imaging software will then create a virtual 3D model of your restoration on our computer screen.
Think we forgot to mention that messy, uncomfortable impression tray? We didn’t! All the CEREC software needs to get an accurate blueprint of your tooth is that precise 3D image.
With CEREC you'll leave with a new crown the very same day!Contact Us
Milling & Placement
CEREC restorations are made of a biocompatible ceramic material that can be adjusted to match the natural color of your other healthy teeth. We insert a block of the ceramic material into our onsite CEREC milling unit, which then constructs your restoration according to the exact specifications outlined by the virtual model. After only 15 minutes or so, your restoration is ready to be placed. Because the computer-aided manufacturing is extremely precise, you’re sure to have a great fit when your newly milled crown, filling, or veneer is polished and bonded to your tooth.

CEREC has been clinically proven in millions of successful restoration procedures, and patients all over the world have benefited from its convenience and cost-effectiveness.
