CEREC machine


Single appointment tooth replacement!

The CEREC machine is an advanced solution that streamlines the tooth replacement process. In just ONE appointment you’ll be good to go with a bright and natural smile!

The CEREC machine innovatively crafts porcelain restorations customized to your mouth through a milling process within minutes via 3D images of your mouth that will be fed into the machine by Dr. Shim.

This method will make the messy traditional techniques (that include taking impressions, temporary bridges/crowns, and additional appointments at the doctor’s office) obsolete.

What our patients say

Sheri W.

“I absolutely love Dr. Shim and his team. I had a horrible experience as a child at the dentist. I was terrified just getting a cleaning. Dr. Shim has been wonderful and has worked with me through my fear. He does amazing work. He has all the latest technology and is very knowledgeable. He and his team are wonderful and caring. I highly recommend them. I’ve been going to him for 12 years and can’t imagine going anywhere else.”

Mark C.

“I have been seeing Dr. Shim for the last few years after moving to Portland from out of state, and the level of professionalism and quality of care is amazing. Everyone there is super friendly and always help you to feel welcome. I have had multiple services done including exams, cleanings, fillings, and even Invisalign treatments, and all were done with great care and professionalism. I recommend all of my friends, family, and coworkers to see them!”

Mikel D.

“I was so happy to find this practice. Dr. Shim and his staff are super professional and fixed my mess of a mouth brilliantly. I had a number of old fillings that had cracked and had decay underneath. Dr. Shim was able to diagnose and treat the problem with great expertise. They also bent over backwards to accommodate my busy schedule to have the procedure done before the end of the year. I will recommend Premier Dentistry to all of my friends!”

Kathy D.

“Very welcoming, always a pleasure to see the team! Would highly recommend to anyone. I always have a great experience and my kids love it here. Couldn’t have a picked a better place.”

Hyla R.

“My crown appointment went great. I was comfortable the whole time, Dr Shim explained what he was doing throughout the procedure and the crown looks very pretty. His dental hygienist Susie was also great. I am very pleased and will be having more dental work done; my next appointment is scheduled.”

Richard M.

“Had my 1st appointment for a cleaning 5/19. Nicki did a great job. In all my years of getting cleanings done, this was one of the best, I will definitely be back.”
