CEREC Primescan at Watsonville Dental Wellness Center

Bringing Dental Innovation to Santa Cruz County

Welcome to Watsonville Dental Wellness Center, where we strive to bring the latest dental technology to our cherished community in Santa Cruz County. As part of our commitment to optimal dental health, we proudly offer CEREC Primescan procedures.

What is CEREC Primescan?

CEREC Primescan is a state-of-the-art dental scanning technology that provides highly accurate, 3D digital impressions of the entire oral landscape, including the teeth and gums. The name “CEREC” stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, which reflects the system’s ability to design and fabricate dental restorations directly in the dental office.

Primescan, the latest advancement in the CEREC line, introduces an even more accurate, faster, and more comfortable scanning process. By taking thousands of images per second, it offers an unprecedented level of detail and precision, making it easier for dentists to create a thorough and accurate treatment plan.

Here’s a more detailed breakdown of the Primescan process:

Digital Imaging

The dentist uses a handheld device to scan the inside of the patient’s mouth. The scanner captures and processes more than one million 3D points per second, creating a high-resolution and highly detailed 3D model.

Efficiency and Comfort

Traditional dental impressions can be time-consuming and uncomfortable. Primescan makes the process faster, more comfortable, and more efficient, often eliminating the need for goopy impression materials.


Primescan produces a more accurate and detailed image, reducing the likelihood of errors and subsequent adjustments. This means fewer appointments and less time spent in the dental chair.

On-site Restoration Fabrication

Using the digital impressions captured by Primescan, a CEREC milling machine can create restorations like crowns, bridges, or veneers right in the dental office, often within a single visit.
