There was a time in Shepperton when, if you needed to have a veneer fitted, a crown or even a bridge, you’d have to wait weeks until the part was made and even when it did return from the lab, there was no guarantee that it would fit correctly, which meant sending it back again. Fortunately, that has all changed thanks to the computer and digital imaging and as a Surrey Practice enthuses about, if you are a busy person in a hurry, you can have these fittings done and dusted in under 2 hours if you opt for CEREC. When you decide what you want doing, you will have digital x-rays and images taken and then fed into a computer that translates the dimensions into a milling machine that makes your fitting while you wait. Naturally, during this time, the dentist can prepare your teeth and get on with any other work that needs doing. Then, you are kitted out with your new look and off you trot- smiling wildly! Of course, the other advantage of CEREC is that if there is a problem with the fitting, it can be rectified in-house, there and then. In comparison, there is also very little difference in cost compared to having the work done the old-fashioned way. Which method would you go for?!

A revolutionary new system of dental crowning is being used by Mulberry Dental Care. No longer do you have to spend lots of time in and out of your local dentist having a crown or veneer procedure. Appointments build up, you wait for your crown at the laboratory and you feel like you are spending half your life in the dentist waiting room, you have even named the fish.
Now with the CEREC restorative procedure, available for dental patients from Shepperton and across the UK, you can be in and out in a single visit with permanent ceramic crowns fitted all in one day.
How does it work?
CEREC technology means that a 3D studio will create and design your crowns while you wait. Normally having new crowns means a lot of injections, impressions and lots of waiting. There are stages you have to go through which inevitably mean a lot of time spent at the dentist. This is why CEREC is so revolutionary. It is fast, efficient and patient-friendly, leaving you free to enjoy your spare time out of the dentist’s surgery!
The ceramic works in harmony with your natural tooth structure and provides flexibility like your natural tooth so that when you have different temperatures of food the crowns are less likely to crack.
Chemicals are used to bond the crown to your teeth so that your dentist can save as much of your original tooth as possible. You only need one injection and the end result of your crown is down to your dentist rather than someone in a laboratory who has never even seen the patient. You are guaranteed a crown to work in harmony with the rest of your teeth with colour matching and unique 3D design.
