Same day crowns, inlays and onlays when you want aesthetics, function and convenience.
Niall has been using CEREC for some time now and is one of the few dentists in the UK who is using the newest up to date OmniCam version of CEREC. The system allows us to scan your tooth and using the latest CadCam technology transfer that scan and 3D image to a computer which is then attached to a milling machine. This machine then constructs your CEREC restoration.
We can use this for simple inlays, onlays, or full crowns on teeth. The advantages of this system are that
Once the scan of your tooth has been transferred to our computer you are free to relax and have a cup of coffee or you can even watch our machine mill your tooth from a ceramic block.
All that remains then is to cement the restoration in place and your tooth is restored. Our patients really value the time saved overall, the quality of the restoration and the simplicity of this system.
CEREC technology makes it possible to produce and integrate ceramic restorations in a single appointment. Unlike other materials such as amalgam or gold, ceramic is more biocompatible and boasts tooth-like physical and aesthetic qualities.
In addition, digital impressions are more comfortable for patients than traditional impressions.
The digital mapping technology of CEREC that charts the inside of the patient’s mouth completely accurately and down to the last detail ensures that there is no issue with inaccurate dental impressions that lead the patient to experience discomfort with bulky moulds and unnecessary debris in the mouth.
