Have you broken your tooth? If so, you may think that it’ll take a couple of weeks to mend it. The good news is that at Liverpool Dental Spa, we offer same-day repairs thanks to incredible Cerec technology. If you need a crown in a hurry, you’ve come to the right place!
What is Cerec and how does it work?
Cerec, or Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, is a form of dental technology, which gives us the ability to offer same-day restorative treatment. With Cerec, we can design, make and fit new veneers, crowns, inlays and onlays in just one day. The best bit is we can do everything on-site, so there’s no waiting around.
Cerec technology covers every aspect of treatment. With this software and machinery, we don’t need to create putty impressions and send them away to the laboratory. We simply take photographs, which are converted into model templates for your new restoration. These detailed images are sent to the milling machine, and, as if by magic, your new restoration is made. We can then fit the new crown, and restore your beautiful smile.
What are the advantages for me?
The best thing about Cerec is the speed. The traditional technique of making a new crown takes two weeks. With this system, we can do everything on-site in a single day. Cerec is also a more accurate process, and it enables patients to have treatment without enduring the messy and somewhat uncomfortable process of making putty impressions. When you only need a single treatment session, this can also save you any stress related to taking time off work or trying to fit treatment around childcare or other commitments.
Cerec is also advantageous for dentists, as it enables us to have more control over the treatment process.
