If you’ve got a broken tooth, we can provide rapid relief. Thanks to Cerec we are able to offer same-day restorative treatment, so if you need a new crown fast, you’ve come to the right place.
What is Cerec?
Cerec is an innovative form of dental technology, which eliminates the need for patients to wait around for new restorations. If you’ve broken your tooth and you need a new crown, you may have to wait up to 2-3 weeks to get a permanent crown. With Cerec, a crown can be fitted in just one day. Traditionally, impressions of the tooth are created and sent away to a laboratory, a temporary restoration is fitted and then the new bespoke crown is placed around 2 weeks later. With Cerec, we can complete every stage of the process on-site in just one day.
Instead of using putty moulds to create a template for the new crown, we take pictures of the tooth, which Cerec technology then converts into 3D models. These models are sent to the on-site milling machine, which is responsible for fabricating the new crown. After minutes, the customised crown will be ready to fit.
If you’ve got a broken tooth, call us and we will see you as quickly as possible. If the tooth is damaged, it will be vulnerable to further injury, and we can repair and strengthen it.
If you’d like to know more about Cerec and how it could benefit you, we’ll be happy to answer any questions. Just give us a call or pop in and see us if you’re passing.
