How Cerec can restore a broken tooth in one day

Friday, February 24th, 2017

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.

How a Dental Crown Can Help Save Your Teeth

Friday, February 17th, 2017

If you have a broken or decayed tooth, you may assume that you’re going to lose that tooth. However, this doesn’t have to be the case. With dental crowns, we can save your teeth and restore your smile.

What exactly is a dental crown?

A dental crown is a type of restoration, which is used to treat infected, damaged and decayed teeth. If your tooth is need of some TLC, we may recommend crowning it. Crowns can help to save teeth that would otherwise fall into further disrepair.

Crowns are also known as caps because they are placed over the top of the damaged tooth. They fit onto the existing tooth structure, and they are custom-made to ensure a perfect, seamless finish. Crowns can be made from metals or ceramic materials. Many people choose to have ceramic crowns because they look more natural. If you have porcelain crown, for example, you won’t be able to tell the difference between the crowned tooth and the rest of your teeth.

Crowns should last anywhere between 5 and 15 years. It’s important that you look after your crown in the same way as your other teeth. When you come in for a check-up, we will have a look at your crown every time. If the crown is showing signs of wear and tear, we can replace it with a new crown.

At Liverpool Dental Spa, we can offer same-day crowns thanks to Cerec.

Why would I need a crown?

You may need a crown if your tooth has been damaged when playing sport or you’ve been involved in an accident. Alternatively, a crown may be recommended if you have a decayed tooth, or you’ve had an infection treated with root canal treatment. Placing a new crown helps to strengthen the tooth following root canal therapy. If you have a missing tooth, we can attach a new crown to a dental implant.
