CEREC - Same day crowns
What is CEREC?
CEREC Technology is a dental restoration that allows dental practitioners to produce ceramic dental restorations using 3D photography. It allows the dental practitioner to produce a new crown, veneer, onlay or inlay within an hour – a procedure that would normally take up to two weeks!
How does it work?
Instead of the traditional method of taking a dental putty material to create the impression, CEREC technology uses a highly sensitive camera to create a 3D model of a tooth. Once the clinician has designed the crown it is then sent off to the milling machine which fabricates the tooth from a ceramic block, this process can take between 6 to 30 minutes.
Reasons to choose CEREC?
- Only one appointment needed
- No temporary restoration
- No impression material needed
- Long lasting and durable
- Protects and preserve your own tooth’s structural integrity
