CEREC is an advanced restoration system that we use to treat tooth decay, place crowns or veneers, and remove defective fillings. Thanks to this state-of-the-art equipment, all of these restorative treatments can be performed in one appointment, saving you time, money, and hassle.

CEREC is an acronym that well describes this revolutionary system:

  • C – Chairside
  • E – Economical
  • R – Restorations
  • E – of Esthetic
  • C – Ceramics

We use the CEREC system at Briargate Dental Center to give you the best and most efficient dental services available anywhere in Colorado.



The CEREC Acquisition Unit is a mobile device that has an advanced computer system and camera. Instead of taking an impression, the camera makes a digital image that is then processed by CEREC software. The software makes a 3D model of the tooth, allowing the restoration to be designed on the screen. The whole process can be done in as little as five minutes, which allows us to get to work on the restoration itself much sooner.

The CEREC system is used in many of our restoration procedures including same day crowns, inlays, onlays, and veneers. These bio-compatible, tooth-colored materials can be used to enhance your smile in a single appointment.



Briargate Dental Center are committed to using the latest technologies to provide our patients with the best dental care possible. We are constantly looking for new ways of incorporating state-of-the-art advancements into our practice without losing the family-friendly atmosphere we’ve worked hard to create.
