Same Day Crowns & Restorations with CEREC
If you need a dental crown quickly, make an appointment at Dentist on the ROCK to discuss CEREC treatments.
CEREC same-day restorations have revolutionised the way dentists create and fit crowns. Unlike regular restoration procedures, which require patients to go through the awkward process of dental impressions, and then wait weeks while their fitting is engineered, CEREC brings the whole process in-house. Digital scanning replaces impressions ‘gloop’ to create an accurate 3D image of your new tooth. The crown is then milled from ceramic in a CEREC machine, and then fitted by your dentist – all in one, easy appointment at Dentist on the ROCK.
CEREC restorations are:
Quick. Only one session at the dentist is required – which means fewer injections and no temporary fittings
Mess-free. No impressions are needed – say goodbye to dental ‘gloop’!
High-tech. Digital imaging offers the most accurate and comfortable restoration yet
CEREC (CEramic REConstruction) was conceived back in the 1980s, but it is only in recent years, thanks to advancements in digital technology, that the system has become truly groundbreaking, allowing dentists to create ceramic crowns, caps and fittings with unrivalled accuracy and speed.
With CEREC your crown, veneer, inlay or onlay can be made quickly and fitted at your chairside. In place of messy dental impressions, clean and painless digital mapping is used to gather accurate information on your tooth situation and render a 3D image of your restoration. This information is then sent wirelessly to the in-house CEREC milling machine, which uses diamond technology to fashion your fitting from colour-matched ceramic – typically in around 10 minutes. Your dentist will then add finishing touches by hand before cementing or bonding your crown in place.
CEREC’s ceramic fittings have an excellent success rate and can last for more than a decade if properly looked after. Studies have shown that CEREC fittings also last, on average, significantly longer than gold, amalgam and lab-manufactured ceramic crowns.
