Meet CEREC – The Quick and Convenient way to restore broken teeth

If you thought it took weeks to repair broken teeth, think again! With incredible modern technology, like CEREC, we are able to carry out quick and convenient repairs. You’ll be smiling again in no time!

What is CEREC?

CEREC is an innovative form of dental technology, which enables us to address broken teeth, and produce custom-made restorations in a single session. CEREC takes care of the design and fabrication processes, which enables us to do everything on-site, and design, make, and fit a new crown on the same day.

Without CEREC, we would create a putty mould of the affected tooth, which would be sent away to the dental laboratory. Skilled technicians would than use the mould to create a brand new restoration. With CEREC, there’s no need for putty impressions, no need to send anything away, and no need to wait around for your new crown. A process that usually takes two weeks takes just one day.

With CEREC, we take photographs of the teeth, which are the converted into very precise models. These 3D images are sent to the milling machine, and the bespoke restoration is then created. In a matter of minutes, the crown will be ready to be placed onto the tooth.

The benefits of CEREC

CEREC offers a wealth of benefits for patients and dentists. The treatment process is much simpler and faster, and it’s also more accurate. Patients don’t need to worry about having putty moulds made, which can be unpleasant, and dentists have more control over the design aspect. With CEREC you only need one appointment, and you can start enjoying the benefits of treatment immediately. Usually, you’d need two sessions and a temporary crown would be placed.
