Cerec

Cerec-1CEREC or Cerec (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, or CEramic REConstruction)[1][2] is a method of CAD/CAM dentistry developed by W. Mörmann and M. Brandestini at the University of Zurich in 1980 for creating dental restorations. Using CAD/CAM (computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing), this process allows dentists to construct, produce, and insert individual ceramic restorations directly at the point of treatment (chairside) in a single appointment,[3] rather than over multiple appointments with labside work in between. The first applications were successfully carried out on patients in 1985.[4] The Cerec name is also a brand name of the Sirona companies (Sirona Australia, Sirona Germany, Sirona USA, and others), because Sirona grew out of the exclusive licensing of the system by Siemens.
