CEREC

You’ll be amazed at the beautiful smiles our dentists can conjure up with the use of this groundbreaking new technology. CEREC can provide you with long lasting crowns in half the time that previous machines could. This is perfect for those of you who are nervous and who would prefer to spend less time in the dentist’s chair. CEREC expedites the process of creating fabulous restorations and therefore allows for shorter treatment times, which means minimal discomfort and intrusion into your day.

What is CEREC?

CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. It uses a computer, a camera and a milling instrument, all fused in one special piece of kit. This innovation is what ensures swift overall treatment times. A precise, accurate picture is taken of the damaged tooth. We can then use Computer Aided Design (CAD) technology to construct a tailored restoration and have it in your mouth the very same day. The versatility and success of this treatment means there is no need for a second appointment.

A high strength bonding resin is used to cement the ceramic crowns in place and ensure they are durable and safe. You don’t have to worry about mercury or gold leaking as you would with fillings and caps.

Why would you consider CEREC?

This treatment can be used for most types of dental restoration and provides vital protection to the teeth you want to keep whilst providing you with that knockout Hollywood look. If you have chipped or discoloured teeth that need preserving, CEREC is the ideal solution, and works better than traditional crowns or mercury fillings, with no need for second appointments. Our technicians can skilfully match the natural tone and shade of your teeth to any shade you desire.

Each patient is assessed to see if CEREC would work best for your smile. Patients who are known to grind their teeth may want to consider a night guard in conjunction with this treatment.
