A smile is the universal welcome

Same day Cerec now available!

CEREC or CEramic REConstruction is a method of creating dental restorations, using CAD/CAM (computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing), this process allows our dentists to construct, produce, and insert individual ceramic restorations directly in a single appointment, without the need for dental impressions, rather than over multiple appointments with laboratory work and weeks before fitting.

The dentist uses an intraoral camera to take a photo of the preparation, the opposite teeth, and the bite situation. Based on the images, the CEREC software creates a virtual model of the patient’s tooth and mouth. The dentist uses this model to construct the tooth restoration on the screen and then passes on the finished construction wirelessly to a milling machine still located in the practice. Depending on the type of restoration, it is then milled out of a colour-matched ceramic block in under 20 minutes using diamond-coated milling units. The dentist can then add the finishing touches to the restoration and polish it, before cementing it in the mouth.

During a chair side treatment, one of our dentists will carry out all the steps, from digital impressions and computer-based construction of the restoration to the milling process, inside the practice.
