Crowns in a day at The Courtyard Clinic

Imagine a dental practice where you can go and have your new false tooth made and fitted during a single visit and in as little as an hour. Advances in technology have allowed us to provide this to you at The Courtyard Clinic using CEREC technology
CEREC is a revolutionary technology that enables your dentist to design, fabricate and fit a new crown, veneer, onlay in a single visit, a procedure that would normally take at least two weeks!
How does this CEREC technology work?
Your dentist will prepare your tooth in the normal way he/she would before fitting a crown. However, instead of using “dental putty” to take an impression of your tooth,which many patients find very unpleasant, a digital image is taken using a special camera. This image is then converted into a 3D digital model of your tooth, which is used as a guide to design your new restoration. Once your dentist is happy with the newly designed tooth, it is sent to an onsite milling machine, which creates your new tooth from a high-quality ceramic block.
A ceramic block is chosen to match the colour and appearance of your natural teeth. Once the crown or veneer has been milled, the dentist may characterise it and stain it bring a real life like appearance to the restoration, before either polishing it or glazing it in a furnace. Your new restoration is then ready to be cemented into place onto your prepared tooth from as little as 1 hour following being prepared.
CEREC restorations have an equal lifespan to traditional crown and bridgework and can often require less preparation of the tooth as they utilise modern “adhesive” technology.
If you need a crown, veneer, onlay or inlay then give us a call on 01932 582949 to book in for a CEREC restoration today.
