Your Time is Important to Us!
Do you have a broken tooth, a large filling that needs replacing, or misshapen teeth?

Are multiple visits to our office unlikely to fit your schedule?

Does completing dental restorations in a single visit interest you?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions then CEREC may be right for you! Once we have diagnosed the problem, we can create a restoration and place it in a single visit.

What is CEREC?

CEREC is an acronym for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics - don't worry, it's a lot simper than it sounds! We apply a layer of powder to your teeth before we use a digital camera to take an image of the tooth requiring attention. A specialized computer then creates a 3D model which is then sent onto a milling machine which then crafts your replacement. Using tooth-coloured ceramics the CEREC can create a crown in under 10 minutes. We then place the restoration in your smile and voila! you can get back to your day!

The Advantages of using CEREC in our office:

  • It saves you time: restorations often require only one visit
  • It keeps your teeth strong: CEREC restorations often allow us to keep more of your natural enamel, thereby preserving the strength of your tooth
  • The procedure can be less invasive than traditional crowns.
  • It keeps your smile bright: the all-ceramic replacement restores your tooth's natural function and beauty

Next time you are in the office ask about CEREC and how it may help you in the future.
