Amazing new CEREC technology at Sunbury dentist’s

CEREC is one of the most modern dental treatment systems in the world using computer-based technology to provide stunning results. Some of the major benefits of CEREC are that it allows treatments to be carried out in a single visit and involves minimal enamel that is often required with other dental restorations.

CEREC allows dentists to design, manufacture and install dental repairs such as crowns, veneers and inlays in a single visit with crown production taking as little as six minutes per tooth. This has been made possible by the introduction of new technology including digital x-rays and three-dimensional imaging. This has also removed the need for time-consuming dental moulds and conventional x-rays.

First, your Sunbury dentist will digitally x-ray your teeth, which produces an immediate 3D image on the screen. This is incredibly accurate and can be used to design a perfectly fitting dental restoration. This information can then be sent to a computer-guided milling machine so it can fabricate the new crown from a single piece of porcelain.

This means that not only are the new dental crowns very strong but they can be made from porcelain that very closely matches the colour of the existing teeth for a more realistic appearance. CEREC technology is cutting edge and set to change the future of dentistry. It is cutting down both waiting and treatment times for patients, as well as providing amazing results for patients who have suffered a dental trauma or the embarrassment of discoloured or stained teeth. Contact your dentist to find out more about how CEREC works and whether it would be suitable for you.
