Dr. Menke is your local CEREC® dentist for single-visit tooth restorations.


What is CEREC?

CEREC is a technology for restoring damaged teeth, and this restoration can be completed in a single visit to the doctor's office. The Cerec technology is more than 24 years old. There are millions of restorations in service worldwide. Dr Menke has been offering Cerec restorations for over 5 years. It makes your teeth stronger and more beautiful — all while keeping your teeth looking natural. The restoration is metal-free and the high-grade ceramic material is compatible with the natural tissue found in your mouth. In fact, of all our restorative options, it is the material that most nearly mimics tooth structure This technology often allows Dr. Menke to restore your teeth with a more conservative reduction of tooth providing a stronger and healthier tooth than most traditional crowns. Its longevity in service for the patient rivals the traditional gold crowns and offers numerous benefits other crowns can't.

The CEREC Process

The process uses an infrared camera to image your tooth and a special computer program that allows custom design of your personal restoration. The computer converts the design into "milling data" and sends the information to a milling machine in the office and produces your crown or restoration out of a block of a high grade ceramic material specially designed for dental restorations.

In 15 to 20 minutes we produce a tooth colored, custom fitting restoration for your tooth. The ceramic restoration is bonded to your tooth using state-of-the-art adhesive dentistry. In one short visit, you have a beautiful strong restoration custom fitted restoration to protect and strengthen your tooth.
