We are proud to invest in new technology to ensure our patients have access to the best dental services and treatments and we are delighted to announce the arrival of our new Cerec machine.
What is Cerec?
Cerec is an innovative form of technology, which enables us to offer a range of restorative services on-site. With Cerec, we are able to design, process and fit new, bespoke restorations in a single session, so you can enjoy your new crown or onlay straight away, rather than having to wait for it to be sent from a laboratory.
Cerec technology uses state of the art design and imaging software to process and convert images of the patient’s teeth into detailed 3D models, which are then sent to the on-site milling machine. This means no more conventional putty impressions for our patients for cosmetic dental procedures, no more temporary crowns or long waiting periods. We are also able to get more involved in the design process and we only need one session, which means fewer injections and less time in the dental chair.
Benefits of Cerec
The Cerec 3D omnicam scans the prepared tooth in just seconds, which eliminates the need for unpleasant silicone impressions which patients can find uncomfortable, especially those with sensitive gag reflexes. Cerec restorations are milled out of a solid ceramic block in just a few minutes and they are then ready to be placed immediately. This eliminates the need for temporary fillings and crowns and means that you only need one visit.
We can use Cerec to create custom-made veneers, inlays, onlays and crowns and provide you with the very best restorations quickly.
