|| What does it do?
Cerec is a unique product in dentistry
allowing the dentist to assess, design and prepare perfectly
fitted ceramic (porcelain) restorations in one visit.
Treatment for tooth coloured crowns, overlays, inlays
and white fillings have not been easier.
No impressions or temporary fillings are needed.
The Cerec 3D ceramic crown requires minimal tooth preparation
during a single visit to the dentist.
How does it work?
An incredibly accurate digital image of your teeth is taken.
The work needed is planned on a computer. Solid blocks of ceramic
material, which are among the hardest of all tooth coloured
materials, are designed into beautifully fitted inlays, onlays,
partial crowns, full anterior and posterior crowns or veneers.
You see everything that is happening on the advanced computer
screen using 3D software. Cerec will then precision
mill the ceramic block.
We use advanced bonding systems to fuse the custom created restoration
to your prepared natural tooth.
This superb new technology allows us to conserve much more of
your natural tooth tissue than was possible before. It also
allows us to perform an extended range of effective, clinically
tested treatments.With over 10 million restorations placed worldwide,
Cerec is rapidly becoming a treatment of choice over conventional
tooth coloured fillings.
