CEREC- One visit crowns, inlays or veneers in Richmond

18th March 2011

We are one of the limited number of users of the Cerec system in the UK.

CEREC is the world’s only system for the fabrication of all ceramic permanent restorations in one visit.

Most dental restorative methods require more than one visit to the dentist.With CEREC, the procedure is done in a single appointment, start to finish. A CEREC tooth restoration isn’t just convenient, it is also healthy.

With CEREC, we can use strong, tooth colored ceramic materials to restore your teeth to their natural strength, beauty, and function. These materials closely match the composition of natural tooth structure.The porcelain restoration is chemically bonded to your tooth, so we can save as much healthy tooth tissue as possible while providing you with a dental restoration that strengthens

your tooth.

This preparation is just as we would do for many other restorative techniques, but…

No impressions necessary!

We take an Optical Impression of the prepared tooth instead of filling a tray with impression “goop”. A camera is then used to take a digital picture of your tooth.

The CEREC 3D software takes the digital picture and converts it into a 3-dimensional virtual model on the computer screen. We design the restoration, click a button, and the data is sent to a separate milling machine. A ceramic block that matches your tooth shade is placed in the milling machine. Ten minutes later, your all-ceramic, tooth-colored restoration is finished and ready to bond in place. Once bonded the tooth looks and feels like a healthy natural tooth.
