What is CEREC®, and how does it work?


CEREC is a technology that restores damaged teeth, and this restoration can be completed in a single visit to our convenient Tukwila, WA office. CEREC makes your teeth stronger and more beautiful, all while keeping your teeth looking natural. This is the finest restorative material available today, and is available in just one appointment by Dr. Jerome R. Baruffi and Dr. Austin Baruffi at Southcenter Dental.

How does CEREC work?

First, Dr. Jerome R. Baruffi and Dr. Austin Baruffi will meet with you to discuss the details of what you can expect. During the procedure, our doctors will apply a thin layer of reflective powder directly on the tooth’s surface. Next, a digital photo of your tooth is taken using a special camera. The image is then sent to the CEREC computer in our office, where your tooth’s restoration is designed using three-dimensional imagery. Once the design is complete, a blank ceramic block is placed into the CEREC computer-automated milling machine. A few minutes later, Dr. Jerome R. Baruffi and Dr. Austin Baruffi will cement or bond the milled restoration directly to the tooth, leaving you free to smile again.

Dr. Jerome R. Baruffi and Dr. Austin Baruffi are your local CEREC dentist for single-visit tooth restorations. Give us a call today at Southcenter Dental to learn more or schedule an appointment. We look forward to seeing you!
