Easy videos of teeth.

But what is it actually?

CEREC Omnicam is innovative equipment that allows our office to use 3D streaming video of your teeth  and special software to design a custom crowns,  veneers, and fillings  in our office.  The design is then sent wirelessly to a milling machine in our office and  is milled from a solid block of ceramic.  Once baked, custom shaded, and polished it is bonded to your tooth.  You leave the office within 90 minutes with an exceptionally strong, beautiful custom restoration.

Patients also love the full color virtual models of their mouth produced by Omnican. This technology is excellent for patient education.
