Advances in technology mean that you could now have a false tooth fitted in only a single session with your dentist. No longer will you have to wait a fortnight or longer as your new crowns, veneers, underlays and onlays can be designed, constructed and fitted in just one visit to your dentist. The efficient procedure is now available in Basildon.
Old methods of using dental putty to take moulds of your teeth could be uncomfortable and mean long waiting times. CEREC is different because it allows dentists to take a digital image of your teeth using cutting edge technology. It is even superior to traditional xrays as the images are 3D, meaning your dentist can have incredible views of your teeth. These images are sent, fast to an online milling machine and your replacement tooth is constructed using high quality ceramics. This process takes roughly six minutes.
Your dentist will make the replacement to your surrounding teeth, ensuring a subtle, discreet finish and then cement it into place. With just one set of anaesthetic injections and the speed of the online milling, CEREC allows the whole process to take place in about one hour. What’s more, the cost is similar to traditional methods. Although the technology is state-of-the-art, CEREC means there are no laboratory fees and you only have to visit your dentist once. Crowns can cost from £380 to £700 and many dentists offer interest-free repayment plans.
There is no longer any need to wait for weeks for your false teeth while having to wear inconvenient temporary replacements.
