The Benefits of Choosing a CEREC Dentist

Cerec - one-visit dentistry logo.When finding the best dentist for your family, you may be looking for someone who treats both kids and adults, someone who offers dental implants or a dentist who is experienced in cosmetic dentistry. What you may not realize, however, are the extraordinary benefits you’ll gain if you choose a CEREC dentist.

What is a CEREC dentist?

A CEREC dentist is a dentist that is qualified and equipped to use advanced CAD/CAM technology to provide one-visit dentistry. This means that a number of restorative and cosmetic solutions that would ordinarily take multiple visits to complete can now be offered in just one appointment. The convenience is unrivaled and the quality is no less superior than past methods

To fully understand and appreciate CEREC technology, it is important to understand how a traditional dentist would do things. If you’ve suffered substantial damage to a tooth or have a significant aesthetic flaw (such as large gaps, chips or deep stains), you’ll probably opt for a dental crown or veneer. Traditional methods involve taking measurements of the affected teeth (usually with a messy impression) and sending the results to an off-site lab. In the meantime, you’ll be forced to wear a temporary crown or veneer for a couple weeks until the permanent restoration is ready. At this point, you’ll return for another office visit to have your final crown or veneer placed.


CEREC is a state-of-the-art technology that streamlines the restoration process into one easy visit. Nothing is sent off-site and there’s no need to wear a temporary crown. We will use the equipment to take digital measurements of your teeth (far more precise and comfortable than an impression). Next, the CAD/CAM software immediately starts creating a computerized image of the tooth along with the perfect blueprint for an ideal restoration. The CEREC machine then utilizes 3D printing capabilities to sculpt and produce your permanent crown or veneer out of the chosen material. This can all be done while we are preparing your tooth for the crown. We will place your crown and ensure it fits precisely before you walk away. In one visit, you can regain the smile you were meant to have.

Now that you understand the profound benefits in having access to modern dental techniques such as CEREC technology, you may want to add “CEREC dentist” to your criteria for a good dentist. At Gilreath Family Dentistry, we hope you can stop your search right here. Dr. Gilreath proudly pursues the latest dental technologies available, and we are known as Marietta’s leading CEREC dentist.

Dr. Gilreath is incredible with my kids. They love going to the dentist now! And this busy mom loves the warm neck wraps, the soft music and enjoying a latte while I relax!

Kenneth H.

Was lucky enough to find these guys when I got insurance that my old dentist did not take. Very professional and friendly staff! Office has the latest greatest technology as well. If you're looking for a new dentist, search no further!

Susie L.

Very personable and friendly, they took the time to go over my complex dental history and did not pressure me into anything. They gave their recommendations and priced out any options I had. Great group!

Camille Y.

Dr. Gilreath and his staff are top notch. I received the best cleaning I've ever had while watching my favorite show. The Doctor and his staff were all very polite, friendly, and courteous. They explained everything to me clearly and presented me with options in a gentle way that didn't make me feel pressured at all. It's obvious they really care about the wellbeing of their patients. The facility and equipment is really nice as well. I will definitely be back!

Juan R.

Always willing to work around my kids and my schedules. Today I had a long appointment. They started on time and always made sure I was comfortable and that the pain was managed so the procedure could’ve been completed without issues. Very courteous and professional staff.

Lucia B.

Awesome dental practice! The staff is friendly and efficient. Dr. Gilreath is thorough and versed in the latest technology and procedures. I love that he can make crowns in the office while you wait (so no walking around with a temporary crown for days or weeks). I would strongly recommend this dental practice!

Matthew W.

I've been going here for about a little over a year now. I've had a few cleanings, a filling, and started Invisiline so far. Hands down, the best run dental office I've ever been to. In the past at other dental offices I often had to wait 30 or more minutes beyond my appointment time before being seen. At Dr. Gilreath's office I've been seen on time every time. They seem to have systems in place to make every part of your visit run smoothly. From how they took x-rays, to billing and appointments, to the work done by the hygienist/dentist, everything seems to run like a well oiled machine. On top of that all the staff are all friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The office space itself is also quite nice. Very clean, well maintained, and seems very "up to date" with their equipment. If you're looking for a dentist and are anywhere in the northwest metro area I would highly recommend Dr. Gilreath.

Jhion R.

The staff is always so courteous and personable. They make us feel like family every time we have an appointment. Service is excellent, too. My wife recently went for a cleaning and Dr. Gilreath noticed a chip in one of her fillings. He knew we recently had another baby and that her time was very limited so he went ahead and did the filling right then and there, an extra thirty minutes tops. Dr. Gilreath is always looking at the big picture and really knows his stuff. We will never go anywhere else
