Have you got a broken tooth or do you need a new crown pronto? If you need results quickly, you’ve come to the right place! At Advance Dental, we offer same-day tooth repair thanks to Cerec, a technological innovation, which has revolutionised the way we work. If you thought you’d have to wait days, or even weeks, for a new restoration, think again!
What is Cerec and how could it benefit me?
Cerec is a form of technology, which enables us to carry out same-day restorative work. Cerec technology caters for every aspect of the design and fabrication process, enabling us to provide single-day treatment on-site. With Cerec, we don’t have to create putty moulds that are sent away to a laboratory. We can design and make custom-made restorations right here, enabling us to fit them on the same day.
We can use Cerec to create bespoke veneers, crowns, inlays and onlays.
In the past, restorative treatment took around 2 weeks and involved two sessions. The first appointment was used to create the mould for the restoration using dental putty. This mould was then sent to the laboratory and the new restoration was fabricated by a dental technician and sent back. The second session was used to fit the new restoration. With Cerec, we can do everything in a single day, with no need for multiple appointments, no messy putty and instant results. If you need tooth repairs urgently, Cerec could be your saviour.
What does the process involve?
The Cerec process is very straightforward. The first stage is to take pictures of the tooth using a special type of camera. These images are converted into precise 3D models, which are sent to the on-site milling machine. The next step is the fabrication of the restoration, which takes minutes. Once the restoration is ready, it can then be placed and secured by your dentist.
