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.

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.

Safe Amalgam Removal Protocol

  • Chlorella drink prior is given prior to treatment and a mouth rinse post-treatment. Chlorella can help bind and prevent mercury absorption.
  • Physical protective barriers - Masks, protective coverings, eyewear, in-mouth non-latex dental dams, and other steps are taken to prevent physical contact with mercury for the patient and staff.
  • Oral evacuation - Generous amounts of water are used to continuously rinse particulate matter from the mouth while suctioning it away. Combined with protective dental dams, this prevents patients from swallowing dental amalgam particles during treatment. Additionally, the rinsing helps lower the temperature of the filling, reducing the amount of mercury vapour released.
  • External air - A continuous supply of non-contaminated air or oxygen is delivered via a mask or similar apparatus, preventing inhalation of mercury vapour or particles.
  • "Chunk it out" method - Rather than using a drill to grind the filling down, it is carefully removed in the largest possible pieces, minimising friction, vaporisation.
  • High Volume Evacuation Suction is used by the dental assistant to remove amalgam particles in the mouth.
  • High Volume Air suction and Air Purifiers are used in the clinical room that is able to remove mercury vapour from the room.
  • Amalgam separator use - This device collects mercury-contaminated waste before it can enter the sewage system, allowing us to dispose of it safely.
