Single Appointment Dental Care
Most dental restorative methods require more than one visit to the dentist. This means that on the first visit, you get an injection of anaesthesia, your tooth prepared, an impression taken, and a temporary restoration put on your tooth. You make a second appointment for a couple of weeks later, get another injection, have the temporary pried off (if it hasn’t fallen off already), and have a permanent restoration put on. With CEREC, the procedure is done in a single appointment, start to finish. No temporary restorations. Now with CEREC Omnicam,MC XL Inlab milling unit and sinter and crystallisation ovens, 3-4 unit bridges can be fabricated in a day.
Finest Dental Materials
A CEREC tooth restoration isn’t just convenient, it is also healthy. Many years ago, dentists had few options to repair decayed and damaged teeth other than amalgam, gold, and other metals. With CEREC, your dentist can use strong, tooth coloured ceramic materials to restore your teeth to their natural strength, beauty, and function. These materials closely match the composition of natural tooth structure. The materials are chemically bonded to your tooth, so your dentist can save as much healthy tooth tissue as possible while providing you with a dental restoration that strengthens your tooth. Using metal free materials that are the closest to your natural enamel, CEREC gives you the highest quality restorative care.
We use CEREC for more than just crowns. CEREC Omnicam and the MC XL inlab milling unit is capable of producing any single tooth restoration, implant abutments and up to 9 unit bridges. Chipped or discoloured front teeth can be repaired with beautiful CEREC porcelain anterior crowns or veneers. Your smile makes a lasting first impression. Enhance it with CEREC.
Your dentist is in complete control of the final result
Since the crown, inlay, onlay or veneer is designed and fabricated from start to finish by your dentist, he has total control over how it will look and fit.
No temporary restorations
With Cerec your restorations are placed in a single appointment. If you have lab made veneers you would require temporary veneers during the wait whilst your new teeth are being made by the technician. These have been known to fall off and cause problems. This step is eliminated with CEREC restorations.
Crystallisation, characterisation and glaze ovens
In certain circumstances it may be necessary to customise your restorations to blend in with your natural neighbouring teeth. This is accomplished by adding colouring stains to your restoration and firing it in an oven before the final glazing is done.
Glazing gives the restoration a very smooth and shiny surface texture, enhancing optimum oral hygiene.
Sinter ovens are used to harden and bake zirconium materials for implant abutments and bridge frameworks.
