We offer Cerec technology for same-day restorative treatment. Now, you can enjoy all the benefits of crown, inlay and onlay treatment in a single visit!
What is Cerec?
Cerec is a form of technology, which allows us to offer same-day restorative treatment. Usually, it takes around two weeks to get a new crown, but with Cerec, we can design, process and fit a new crown all in the same session, saving you time and making treatment much more convenient.
Cerec uses state of the art software to convert images of the teeth into detailed 3D images, which are used to design your bespoke restoration. These designs are then sent to the milling site, where the restoration is processed. It takes a matter of minutes to create the new restoration and one it’s ready, it can then be fitted.
We use Cerec to create bespoke crowns, veneers, inlays and onlays.
Advantages of Cerec
The main advantage of Cerec is speed, but there are many other benefits. The treatment process is quicker, but it is also easier and much less messy, as there is no need for putty moulds or impressions. Many people dislike the process of creating a putty mould, especially those with a sensitive gag reflex, so Cerec is a great option in this case. The whole process can be completed in a single session, which means less time in the dental chair, fewer injections and greater convenience, as you do not have find time to schedule two separate appointments; you can also enjoy the benefits of your permanent restoration without having to have a temporary one first.
Cerec treatment also improves accuracy and gives dentists greater say in the design process.
