CEREC

CEREC (Chair-side Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) enables porcelain ceramic inlay material to be produced easily while you wait. A restoration can now be performed in one dental appointment!

No longer are impressions and laboratory work required for dental restorations, a process which usually takes up to several weeks and a series of dental appointments. CEREC means the restoration is completed within just one visit.

By taking an infra-red digital scan of your damaged tooth we can utilise the latest Cad/Cam technology to recreate the tooth and using our wireless MCXL milling unit, mill a perfect replica that is strongly bonded into place. CEREC is a far superior alternative to most large fillings.

Our CEREC crowns are designed, milled, hand-painted, and glazed by Robert within the practice.

Before treatment begins we inform you about the benefits of CEREC

After removing the decayed tissue or the defective amalgam filling we create a 3D image of the tooth with the aid of the CEREC camera

The restoration is designed on the monitor of the CEREC acquisition unit

The CEREC milling unit machines the restoration out of a ceramic block

The CERECcrown is then hand-painted, stained, and glazed by hand and placed into the furnace.

The milled restoration is bonded directly to your tooth

What the CEREC treatment procedure means

No conventional impressions

The CEREC 3D measuring camera scans the prepared tooth in just a few seconds. This eliminates the need for unpleasant silicone impressions.

No temporaries

CEREC restorations are milled out of a solid ceramic block in just a few minutes. They are then ready to be placed immediately. This eliminates the need for temporary fillings and crowns. It also means that you need only one appointment. And you don't have to wait for days on end until the ceramic filling is finished.

No long waiting periods

Because CEREC restorations can be placed immediately, you need only one appointment. And you benefit from tooth restorations which have demonstrated their durability time and time again
