CEREC Northborough, MA

Dr. Robert Gauthier is the first and only dentist in Northborough, MA, with CEREC and CEREC InLab advanced dental technology. CEREC InLab is a commercial laboratory-grade version of CEREC. The CEREC InLab software and milling center can fabricate implant restorations, dental bridges, highly esthetic dental crowns, and porcelain veneers.

The CEREC InLab gives Dr. Gauthier the ability to have the equivalent of a commercial dental laboratory right in the office, which minimizes turnaround times for our patients with larger cases.

With CEREC InLab, Dr. Gauthier and his team have control over restoration design and esthetics without having to communicate fine details to a dental laboratory technician. This allows for the delivery of beautiful, lifelike restorations on a very consistent basis.

We can highly customize your restoration using a wide array of ceramic stains, colors, and glazes and a ceramic oven right in the office, ensuring a seamless natural-looking restoration every time.

Using CAD/CAM technologies, CEREC produces indirect ceramic restorations such as dental crowns, caps, inlays, onlays, and dental veneers in a single visit.

How Does CEREC Work?

Benefits of CEREC Dentistry

Traditional restorative procedures often require multiple visits, during which the patient undergoes messy impressions, extensive preparation, uncomfortable temporaries, and waits for an outside laboratory to produce the restoration.

With the CEREC system, we can restore your teeth in a single visit. After our office prepares the tooth a special camera takes an optical impression of the tooth, recording its exact specifications.

Using the CAD/CAM software, we digitally prepare the restoration. Then, we send it to a milling machine, where they create the restoration using the finest, tooth-colored ceramic material.

In just a few minutes, the restoration is ready and checked for a perfect fit. Then, we permanently bond or cement it to your tooth and gently polish it to a beautiful shine.

CEREC uses materials that closely match the composition of natural tooth structure. The ceramic materials are strong and tooth-colored to restore teeth to their natural strength, beauty, and function.
