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.
Crown - one visit
Prepared, almost ready to go.
Amalgam filling - one visit
Perfectly fitting tooth coloured ceramic filling.
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.
