One of the main factors that may hold people back from undergoing dentistry is the number of appointments they may potentially need to attend. However with CEREC technology, we can now provide an inlay/onlay/crown restoration in a single 60-minute appointment.
It allows the practitioner to prepare perfectly-fitted ceramic restorations with significant savings in time.
The dentist will take a digital image of the teeth using a special camera. This is as an alternative to creating an impression with the traditionally utilised dental putty.
This photograph is then converted into a computerised 3D model, and used as a guide to create the new restoration. The information is then transmitted to a specially-designed milling machine, which creates the restoration from a specially selected, high-quality ceramic block. The restoration will match the colour of the patient’s other teeth.
The finest quality aesthetic ceramic materials are used to ensure restoration strength and high aesthetics.
The advantages of using CEREC treatment are primarily its timing and efficiency.
Other benefits include:
A CEREC restoration will cost between £495 to £595 per tooth which is similar to cost of traditional crowns. We provide 0% dental finance on treatments over £500. This allows patients to spread the cost of treatment without paying any interest.
