At Advance Dental Clinic, we know that time is of the essence for many of our patients, and this is why we offer speedy solutions. If you need a new restoration, we’ve got you covered. With Cerec 3D, we can provide natural-looking, same-day restorations.
The benefits of Cerec
Cerec offers us an alternative to traditional restorative methods, and it enables us to complete the entire treatment process in one single session. With Cerec, we can design, fabricate and fit brand new crowns in just one day. We can do everything on-site, and you don’t have to worry about booking multiple appointments or having temporary restorations fitted. The treatment process with Cerec is cleaner, faster and more accurate, and patients can enjoy the results almost immediately.
Usually, when you need a new crown, for example, treatment takes around 2 weeks. An impression is made using dental putty, and this is sent away to the laboratory. A temporary crown is fitted and this is replaced around 2 weeks later when the new, bespoke crown is ready. With Cerec, every stage is completed in one day in one place.
The Cerec treatment stages
Cerec is a hugely innovative form of dental technology, which eliminates the need for putty moulds, repeat appointments and temporary restorations. To start the process, we will take photographs of your mouth. These are converted into 3D moulds by Cerec, and these moulds are used to form the template of your bespoke crown. The next step is creating the restoration. The model image is sent to the on-site milling machine, and fabrication takes just a few minutes. The next step is fitting the new restoration. Your dentist will place the crown, the veneers, inlays or onlays, and then secure the restoration.
