Getting a tooth fixed with a dental crown, bridge, inlay, or onlay is necessary for optimal health and function. The inconvenience of traditional treatment, however, leaves something to be desired. We understand that your life is busy, and have incorporated CEREC technology into our offices so that your smile can be excellently restored in just one visit!
Dental crowns are ideal for the repair of extensively damaged teeth. Traditional practice is to remove all structural damage and take an impression of the tooth for the dental lab to then use in the creation of the new crown. To create a strong, durable crown, a metal sub-base is often used. These steps are no longer necessary. CEREC creates healthy, beautiful dental crowns crafted from high quality ceramic, which is both attractive and incredibly strong. Even more importantly, the imaging that takes place during the preparation phase leads to optimal fit, which is necessary for long-lasting results.
Whether you are improving your smile with porcelain veneers, or require restoration of a damaged tooth, we can have you back to life as usual in just about ninety minutes, eliminating a return visit for fitting. You also avoid the need for a temporary restoration.
Instead of standard dental impressions, CEREC technology takes a digital scan of the tooth to be repaired, after all damage has been removed. From this scan, a digital image is created with advanced software, and used by the milling machine to craft a perfectly sized, shaped, and coloured restoration. Within a few hours , the crown, inlay, onlay, or veneer is ready to be evaluated and bonded to the tooth.
The use of tooth-coloured material in CEREC treatment means that your smile looks natural, no dark lines showing on the gums. A CEREC restoration will be strong, durable, long-lasting and gorgeous!

What is CEREC Technology by Dr. Terry Rose
What is CEREC?
CEREC is a 3D camera synched to a computer and used to capture digital images around the mouth, teeth and gums.
How are the restorations made?
When we have a 3D model, we can design nice crowns, inlays, bridges and implants crowns on it.
The CEREC capture device can be placed in another machine and we can use that milling machine to mill the restoration out of a block of porcelain.
Why is a furnace used?
Some materials we can put in a furnace we have and that can be used to make things exactly the right color and improve some material strength.
It is a pretty exciting technology and its always moving ahead it certainly gives us more and more control over the final product.
