What does it do?

Treatment for tooth coloured crowns, overlays, inlays and white fillings have never 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. You can then watch while Cerec precision mills the ceramic block while you wait.

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.

Metal-free biocompatible dentistry

Health minded people are increasingly becoming concerned with metal in their mouth (particularly mercury) A CEREC tooth restoration isn’t just convenient; it is also the healthy choice. Years ago, dentists had few options when it came to repairing decayed and damaged teeth other than amalgam, gold, and other metals. With CEREC tooth colored ceramic materials are used to restore your teeth to their natural strength, beauty, and function. These materials closely match the formation of natural tooth structure. This means when you eat hot food and then drink something cold, the CEREC restoration and tooth expand and contract at almost equal rates. So, your tooth does not crack and you can go on enjoying your meal. Also, the materials are chemically bonded to your tooth which means that we can save as much healthy tooth as possible while providing you with a dental restoration that strengthens your tooth. The CEREC enamel-like material is biocompatible with the soft tissues in the mouth and provides a high-grade, anti-abrasive and plaque-resistant finish.
