We all want a perfect, bright smile but we don’t always want to sit through hours of appointments to achieve this dream smile. A lot of dental treatments require numerous visits which means double the discomfort and sometimes double the anesthesia. This is not feasible in terms of time and cost. If you have a busy schedule and want to fix your smile in as little time as possible then we have a solution here at Fiveways Dental. CEREC tooth restoration or one visit smiles can transform your smile using crowns, veneers or onlays in just one appointment.
What is CEREC?
The dental industry is constantly developing to make dentistry more effective and efficient. Cosmetic dentistry in particular is developing to become less intrusive and more discreet. Fitting crowns typically takes two appointments, the first visit involves preparatory work and you will be fitted with a temporary crown until your next appointment where the permanent crown will be fitted.
With CEREC this is all done in one quick appointment. CEREC uses state of the art technology to restore teeth in just one day. A CEREC appointment involves diagnosing, creating and fitting crowns, veneers or onlays all in the one day. CEREC uses CAD/CAM dentistry to improve the speed and design of tooth restoration.
What is the process of CEREC?
The procedure of CEREC is similar to any other tooth restoration but is smarter and more convenient. The process involves firstly examining the teeth to diagnose and determine the best method of treatment. The tooth is then prepared and an impression is taken using camera technology rather than the usual uncomfortable mold. The 3D image that is created from the impression allows for greater, more accurate and precise results.
The great thing about CEREC is that there’s no need to send the impression to an outside lab for the crown to be made as the CEREC software creates a virtual model of the tooth which we use to create the tooth restoration all in our surgery. The crown, veneer or onlay can then be fitted and you will walk out of our surgery with a completely new smile than you had a couple of hours before.
Are CEREC crowns just as good as regular dental crowns?
CEREC crowns are just the same as regular dental crowns but the process of making them is different. The main difference is that CEREC tooth restoration is a lot more convenient for the patient. CEREC is also very durable and can strengthen the tooth. They’re made from strong ceramic materials and are chemically bonded to the tooth for a secure fit.
CEREC restores the tooth’s strength, appearance and function.
