The wonders of modern dentistry never cease to amaze our patients, and if you thought you would have to wait for weeks for restorative treatment, we bring you good news! With Cerec, we can offer one-day tooth restoration right here in the heart of Essex.
What is Cerec?
Cerec stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. In more basic terms, this is a type of technology, which enables us to fit brand new, bespoke restorations in just one day. Gone are the days of waiting around for a new crown or inlay. Today, we can cater for all your needs in a single session.
Cerec takes care of all aspects of restorative treatment and it enables us to design, fabricate and fit brand new, custom-designed crowns, veneers, inlays and onlays on the same day. Normally, we would create impressions of the tooth, which would be sent away to a laboratory. After around 2 weeks, the new restoration would arrive at the clinic and we would schedule an appointment to place it. With Cerec, we can undertake every stage of treatment under one roof, enabling us to offer same-day restorative therapy. Cerec uses images, rather than putty moulds to act as a template for the new restoration, which makes the process quicker, cleaner and more accurate.
The benefits of Cerec
The most obvious benefit of Cerec is the time it takes to complete treatment. Rather than waiting 2 weeks for results, patients can enjoy the benefits after just one day. The process is also simpler and more pleasant for patients, with no need to have putty moulds of the mouth created, which can be uncomfortable. Dentists have more control over the procedure, and there’s no need for patients to take time off work for two appointments on separate days.
If you like the sound of same-day treatment, give us a call today and book a consultation.
