In today’s world, very few of us have the time to come to visit the dentist for multiple appointments to receive dental treatment. The more can be done in one visit, the better for those with demanding schedules. At the same time, sitting for hours in a dental chair is not ideal either.
One solution to this is called CEREC, a state-of-the-art machine that can make permanent crowns, veneers or onlays for you while you are still in the chair. This means you don’t need an extra visit to the practice, have to wear a temporary fitting for a few weeks or get anaesthesia twice!
A CEREC tooth restoration isn’t just convenient, it is also durable because it works with strong, tooth coloured ceramic materials which closely match the composition of natural tooth structure. This means your teeth can be restored to their natural strength, beauty, and function without looking out of place among the rest of your teeth. What’s more, your CEREC fabricated crowns, veneers or onlays are chemically bonded to your tooth, so your dentist can save as much healthy tooth tissue as possible while providing you with a dental restoration that strengthens your tooth.
