CEREC® Omnicam– RESTORATIONS
Do you have chipped teeth? Or maybe old amalgam (Silver) fillings that you feel uncomfortable with when smiling? Would you like to replace them or have your broken or chipped teeth replaces in just one visit? If the answer is yes, then you need CEREC – NEW Ceramic Teeth in just one visit! With CEREC® 3D Technology you can have permanent white fillings, tooth coloured crowns, inlays and onlays – all this completed while you wait. CEREC® is a ‘digital infrared camera – medical grade PC and milling machine’, all located at Devonshire House Dental Practice. You can even watch your brand new ceramic teeth being made in front of your eyes, with the help of the most advanced computer technology available.
What is CEREC?
CEREC is a revolutionary system that enables your dentist to design, fabricate and fit a new crown, veneer, onlay or inlay in a single visit, a procedure that would normally take at least two weeks, if not more! With CEREC you get new teeth in the same day.
How does this CEREC technology work?
Our dentist at Devonshire House Dental Practice will prepare your tooth in the normal way he would before fitting a crown or a veneer. At this point, instead of using “dental putty” to take an impression of your tooth, a digital image is taken using a special camera. This image is then converted into a 3D computerised model of your tooth, which is used as a guide to design your new restoration. Once our dentist is happy with the newly designed tooth, this data is sent to an onsite milling machine, which fabricates your new tooth from a high-quality ceramic block. The milling process can take anywhere from as little as 6 minutes to 30 minutes depending on the exact technology and complexity of the tooth. And you are welcome to watch it happening in front of your own eyes!
What are the benefits of CEREC?
There are several advantages to having treatment with CEREC over conventional, laboratory-made restorations:
- Everything is carried out in a single visit – you only need to visit the dentist once – take one day away from your work or life to have the procedure – instead of the usual two or three visits over weeks of hassle.
- Only one set of local anaesthetic injections – since the entire procedure can be carried out within the hour, you only need to have one lot of injections.
- Your dentist is in complete control of the final result – since the crown or veneer is designed and fabricated from start to finish by your dentist, he has total control over how it will look and fit, whereas a crown made in a laboratory is under the control of the technician who hasn’t even seen the patient – you!
- No temporary restorations – if you have lab-made veneers, you would require temporary veneers during the wait for your new teeth. These have been known to fall off and cause problems, which is a step that is omitted with CEREC restorations.
Proven Technology CEREC® has two decades of clinical research and practical experience to support the success of this technology. More than eight million restorations have been performed worldwide using CEREC® technology.
