We are delighted to bring one of modern dentistry’s finest innovations to Essex. With the help of Cerec technology, we are now able to offer same-day bespoke restorative treatment, so you don’t have to wait weeks for a new crown or a replacement veneer. Cerec is a form of technology, which allows us to design and manufacture new restorations, including inlays, onlays, crowns and veneers, on-site. Usually, dentists create moulds of the teeth, which are sent away to dental technicians when a patient needs a new restoration and this process takes around 2 weeks; with Cerec, we are able to complete the entire process, from taking a photograph of your tooth to fitting the restoration in a single day at our practice. This means less time in the dental chair for you and instant results; Cerec also enables us to have more control over the design and the finished outcome and there is no need for temporary restorations. Many patients dread having treatment because they dislike the feeling of having putty in their mouth and this is particularly problematic in patients with over sensitive gag reflexes; with Cerec, images are used instead of putty moulds and this means that you can have treatment without any worries about feeling uncomfortable. Cerec is capable of completing all the stages of treatment; we take photographs of the tooth and these are converted into detailed 3D models by sophisticated computer software. The models are then sent to the on-site milling machine, which is responsible for fabricating the new, custom-made restoration. This process is incredibly quick and once your crown or onlay is ready, we can fit it straight away.
