Crowns, or as they are sometimes called a “cap”, are designed to be a permanent solution to broken, weak, or damaged teeth. They fit over the damaged tooth like a helmet and protect it from further damage.
Traditionally, having a crown fitted takes several visits to your dentist to put in place. But thanks to advances in computer imaging and dental technology it is now possible to get a beautiful and natural-looking crown in a single appointment with the CEREC system.
By protecting your tooth with a CEREC restoration, you can reduce the chances of needing further fillings and extend the life of a severely weakened tooth. Best of all it looks and feels just like a normal tooth.
Rather than having a temporary crown and waiting weeks for the lab to produce your restoration, you can relax in the comfort of our patient lounge and your restoration will be ready in less than an hour.
We will use a digital camera to scan your mouth at an almost microscopic level. This ensures your CEREC pure porcelain restoration is a perfect and precise fit.
This technology means no more unpleasant impressions, just relax while the dentist uses the highly accurate digital camera to record a precise electronic impression of your teeth.
The restorations are metal free, so they are completely tooth coloured and mimic the tooth structure being replaced. This is the most natural and tooth friendly way of replacing lost enamel.
The main advantage of the CEREC crown is the convenience of getting your tooth restored in one visit rather than spread out over several days or even weeks.
The key thing to remember is the CEREC system gives our team complete control of the shape, contour and fit of the crown- and it will be ready in less than an hour!
Absolutely! Everything about the CEREC system is designed to give you a wonderful, robust and completely natural looking tooth restoration in a single visit.
Unlike traditional crowns, which require having a temporary crown put in place and waiting weeks for a lab to produce your restoration, you can relax in our comfortable patient lounge while we create your new CEREC crown for you in less than an hour.
The system allows us to scan your mouth at an almost microscopic level to ensure your CEREC porcelain restoration is a perfect and very precise fit.
