5 Amazing Facts About CEREC

Thursday, November 10th, 2016

Dentistry is a truly amazing field, which is advancing and evolving all the time. We’re proud to invest in incredible dental technology to bring our clients the best treatments out there. One of our most innovative treatments is same-day CEREC restorations. If you’re not familiar with CEREC, here are five amazing facts.

  1. CEREC enables us to offer same-day restorative treatment: usually, it takes around two weeks and separate treatment sessions to provide crown or veneer treatment. With CEREC, we can offer same-day treatment. CEREC takes care of every aspect of restorative treatment for us. We can design, fabricate and fit the new restoration in a single day.
  2. CEREC can be used to make bespoke veneers, inlays and onlays and crowns: CEREC is a versatile piece of kit, which enables us to make an array of different restorations. This means that we can offer same-day treatment to patients with varied restorative needs.
  3. CEREC enables us to do everything on-site: usually, when you need a new crown, for example, we create a putty mould, which is sent away to the laboratory. With CEREC, we do everything on-site.
  4. CEREC uses photographic images to form customised restorations: many people dislike the feel of dental putty in their mouth, and creating moulds can be an unpleasant and messy experience. With CEREC, we don’t need to do this. We can create new restoration using photographic images. CEREC converts these images into 3D templates, which are sent to the milling machine.
  5. CEREC improves accuracy: with putty impressions there’s always a marginal risk of inaccuracy. CEREC eliminates this and is therefore a more accurate way of creating custom-made restorations.

Terrific Technology with CEREC Restorations

Friday, December 4th, 2015

At Liverpool Implant and Aesthetic Dental Spa, we’re big fans of technology and are always eager to invest in new innovations to bring our clients the best treatments on the market. CEREC is a terrific form of technology that enables us to offer same-day bespoke restorative treatment. Whether you need repairs in a hurry or want to enjoy the many benefits of treatment straightaway, CEREC could be an ideal option for you.

What is CEREC and what’s so good about it?

CEREC is a form of technology that allows us to complete the process of restoring the teeth in a single day. With CEREC, we can design, fabricate and fit a brand new crown, veneers, onlay or inlay in just one session, so there’s no hanging about, no temporary restorations and no need to book time off work.

CEREC treatment works by taking images of the teeth and using advanced software to convert them into templates for the new restoration. These virtual templates are sent to the on-site milling machine and the fabrication process begins. In just a couple of minutes, the milling machine creates a brand new, bespoke restoration. Once this process is complete, your dentist can then fit the restoration and you can see the results for yourself.

Traditionally, restorative treatment involves creating putty impressions, which are sent away to a laboratory where the restoration is made by a dental technician. This process usually takes around 2 weeks. With CEREC, we can do everything on-site and this saves a great deal of time as your new restoration will be ready on the same day. There’s also no need to fit a temporary restoration. In addition to time saving, dentists can also enjoy greater involvement in the design process and can guide you through the process step by step so you always know what’s going on.

What Exactly is Cerec Technology?

Friday, April 24th, 2015

You may have heard dentists talking about the wonders of Cerec, but what exactly is Cerec and how could it benefit patients in Liverpool?

What exactly is Cerec?

Cerec is a form of advanced dental technology that gives dentists the ability to design and crate new bespoke restorations on-site. The process is incredibly quick and the technology takes care of all aspects of treatment, from the initial imaging and planning to the manufacture. Traditionally, patients who need a new crown or inlay visit their dentist and two weeks later, they have their restoration fitted. The stage in between takes place at a dental laboratory, where technicians use impressions of the tooth created by dentists, to make the new restoration. With Cerec, the entire process takes place at the clinic and the new restoration can be fitted in the same day.

Cerec uses images of the teeth captured by a digital camera to form new restorations. At the first stage, the images are converted into models by state of the art design software. These designs are then sent to the milling machine and the manufacturing process takes place. The bespoke restoration is ready in minutes and it is then fitted by your dentist.

What are the advantages of Cerec?

There are lots of advantages of Cerec treatment for dental patients and dentists. The speed of treatment is greatly reduced from two weeks to a single session and there is no need for temporary restorations, multiple treatments or putty impressions. These can be uncomfortable for some patients who have a sensitive gag reflex. The process is more accurate, everything can be done under the same roof and dentists can exert more influence at the design stage.

We are able to use Cerec to create same-day custom-designed crowns, inlays, onlays and veneers. If you would like to find out more about sensational Cerec, call us today and make an appointment.
