CEREC® stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics and the first CEREC® patients received service in 1985. CEREC® is a brand name owned by Sirona, a new company that formed after Siemens sold its dental division.
Aside from saving time for the patient and dentist, the digital impressions created by CEREC® are generally regarded as more comfortable for patients than traditional impressions. According to a study by G. V. Arnetzl, G. Arnetzl in 2006, the ten-year success rate of CEREC® inlays was significantly longer than traditional gold and ceramic inlays. The nine-year success rate of CEREC® restorations is 95.5% and 84% after 18 years.
