CEREC

Want to achieve beautiful porcelain restorations in just one visit to the dentist? CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, or CEramic REConstruction)¬†allows us the technology to increase the efficiency of your restoration experience…

Traditionally multiple appointments were necessary when fitting crowns, veneers or any other restoration. This means more stress, cost and time wasted for the patient and a drawn out process.

Traditional restorations involved: An initial moulding process followed by installation of temporary veneers or crowns, waiting weeks for the custom veneers and crowns to be outsourced and then the patient must return to the dentist to have the temporary devices removed and custom restorations installed.

Our acquisition of a CEREC machine has meant that the scans, creation of material and installation of veneers, crowns and inlays can all be done on site during one procedure, saving you time, money and stress.

The CEREC restoration involves:

  • A 3D optical impression of your tooth is created via a high tech digital 3D camera.
  • Computer Aided Design (CAD) software is used to design a custom restoration specifically for you.
  • An on-site milling machine then creates your custom restoration in a mere 10 minutes! Your restoration is then ready to be permanently bonded, to create a natural looking and functional tooth.
