What is CEREC technology?
CEREC is a computer restoration system that allows us to provide accurate and natural looking ceramic dental restorations in a single visit to our centre.
At Quality Dental, we understand your time is valuable and as such have installed this sophisticated technology to provide ceramic restorative solutions without awkward impressions, temporary fillings and multiple appointments.
How does this system work?
After examining your tooth and determining the best course of treatment, we will prepare your tooth for its restoration, similar to traditional treatment methods.
We will then use the CEREC digital 3D infrared scanning system to create an optical impression of your tooth. This cutting-edge technology allows for a precise replica of your tooth structure to be created.
Following this, specialised state-of-the-art CAD (Computer Aided Design) software will design and mill every intricate detail of your restoration with extraordinary accuracy.
While you wait
For many patients, the most exciting news is that this all happens while you are relaxing in our dental chair.
Our on-site milling machine will fabricate your restoration while you sit back; read a magazine or even watch some TV. It’s hard to believe but only minutes later, your new restoration will be ready for placement. It will be fitted, bonded and polished to your prepared tooth, thus supporting and strengthening your tooth structure.
The following procedures can be completed using CEREC technology:
- Ceramic Crowns
- Ceramic Veneers
- Inlays and Onlays
Using metal-free materials that are the closest match to your natural enamel, CEREC technology can give you a high quality restorative solution.
Why choose a CEREC restoration?
In the past, to offer crowns, veneers, inlays and onlays, you would have to wait around 2 weeks for them to be fabricated in a dental laboratory. This was often a deterrent for many patients and they would avoid accepting these most optimal treatment procedures.
Without compromise in quality of material or overall function, we can now offer a more time efficient option to ensure your treatment is completed with little disruption to your busy schedule.
CEREC technology is truly the next generation in restorative dentistry.
