Dr. Terry Rose, Smile In Style

One appointment, one day, one beautiful smile

CEREC exemplifies the many benefits of modern dentistry. It allows us to create high-quality dental crowns with exacting precision, without the wait. The secret is bypassing the external laboratory, with in-office milling.

  • Your new crown is designed and fabricated here in our office, on the same day as your appointment.
  • There is no need for a temporary crown.
  • Bridges, inlays onlays, and other porcelain restorations can also be created using CEREC.

Advanced technology for amazing smiles

How does CEREC allow us to create dental crowns without the laboratory? The answer is CAD/CAM technology. That means Computer Aided Design and Computer Aided Manufacturing. With exacting precision and next-generation technology, we can create beautiful restorations faster than ever.

  • Restorations are designed using three-dimensional imaging, eliminating the mess and discomfort of traditional impressions.
  • Visual data is fed into a specialized software program, which your dentist uses to design the restoration.
  • The design is sent to a milling machine, which carves your new crown from a block of quality porcelain dental material.
  • Your dentist refines and polishes the crown before cementing it in place.

The entire process is completed in just one appointment, so that you can get on with the business of living your life and loving your smile. If you need a high quality dental crown in a hurry, call Smile in Style today. You can reach our Sunbury office at 03 8001 6021 or our Moonee Ponds office at 03 8400 4104 or now you can also book online.

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.
