Ceramic Reconstruction – CEREC Cad cam Dentistry
Cerec CAD-CAM Dentistry is an exciting technique allowing a heavily broken down tooth/ broken down teeth to be fixed in just one visit.
By using this state-of-the-art technology your tooth can be repaired without an impression, without temporaries and without metal.
This technique can make old metal filled teeth look like new.
All of our dentists are trained to use the CEREC 3D system. This revolutionary system allows single visit crowns, veneers and ceramic reconstructions. This differs from more traditional techniques which usually involve at least two visits for a crown or veneer. Often two weeks are needed between visits and patients are left with temporary plastic crowns or veneers for this time. The CEREC 3D system allows patients to leave with their new tooth in around one hour.
What are the benefits of CEREC?
Content provided by:
There are several advantages to having treatment with CEREC over conventional, laboratory-made restorations:
Everything is carried out in a single visit
You only need to visit the dentist once - take one day away from your work or life to have the procedure - instead of the usual two or three visits.
Only one set of local anaesthetic injections
Since the entire procedure can be carried out within the hour, you only need to have one lot of injections.
Your dentist is in complete control of the final result
Since the crown or veneer is designed and fabricated from start to finish by your dentist, he/she has total control over how it will look and fit, whereas a crown made in a laboratory is under the control of the technician who hasn't even seen the patient.
No temporary restorations
If you have lab-made veneers, you would require temporary veneers during the wait for your new teeth. These have been known to fall off and cause problems, which is a step that is omitted with CEREC restorations.
