Cosmetic Dentistry Produces Amazing Results

Monday, October 12th, 2015

18625010Solve all your teeth problems with cosmetic dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry encompasses a wide range of practices designed to improve the look of your smile and the function of your mouth.  Having a smile with which you can feel confident and proud is just as important as having a fully functioning set of teeth and a healthy mouth.  These two things are often interlinked and cosmetic dentistry can ensure that both are fully realised.

There are many reasons why you might feel that you require some cosmetic dentistry work.  If you have lost a tooth or teeth then you might with to have some porcelain crowns installed by your dentist.  These lightweight, durable and realistic replacement teeth can be treated just like your normal teeth, giving you back functionality and an aesthetically pleasing smile.

Cosmetic dentistry also encompasses processes such as teeth whitening.  It is highly likely that your teeth will be subject to some degree of staining in your lifetime or at the very least their natural colour will fade.  Dentists can offer treatments or at-home packages for you to administer yourself.

Some of these techniques can be offered in conjunction with one another, giving patients the chance to have a ‘smile makeover’ if they are faced with multiple issues to do with their oral health and appearance.  Technological advances have made some of these processes incredibly fast but without the increases in price which one might expect.

For example, CEREC techniques allow dentists to take digital, 3D images of teeth and send them to an online milling machine.  This machine constructs porcelain veneers and crowns in just over five minutes, ready to be fitted by your dentist.

Amazing CEREC Treatment

Thursday, August 6th, 2015

4207449_blogIf you’re looking for an amazing treatment in the centre of Leeds, look no further than CEREC. CEREC technology has revolutionised restorative dentistry, giving us the opportunity to offer our clients same day bespoke treatment.

What is CEREC and what’s so good about it?

CEREC is a form of CAD/CAM technology that enables us to create and fit new restorations such as veneers, inlays, onlays and crowns in one day. Usually, the treatment process for new restorations takes around two weeks as the restorations are made in a dental laboratory by skilled technicians. With CEREC, we can create the new restorations on site.

CEREC treatment involves three key stages. The first stage is to design the restoration using advanced imaging software. We take photographs of the teeth and use the software to convert them into 3D images. Theses images act as templates. The second stage is the manufacturing process, which occurs when the images are sent to the milling machine. This machine works quickly to turn visual templates into tangible new restorations. The final stage is to fit the new restoration.

CEREC offers us many advantages, including:

  • Vastly reduced treatment times (from two weeks to just one day!)
  • No need for temporary restorations
  • Increased accuracy
  • No need to make putty moulds, which can be uncomfortable for those with a sensitive gag reflex
  • Versatility – we can use CEREC to create a range of restorations, such as veneers, crowns, inlays and onlays

If you would like to find out more about the amazing benefits of CEREC treatment, don’t hesitate to call us.

With CEREC technology, lengthy waits for new crowns and veneers are a thing of the past. You can now enjoy fantastic results instantly!


CEREC technology has changed the face of restorative dentistry and we are proud to offer same-day restorative treatment in the centre of Leeds. If you thought you had to wait weeks for a new crown, think again!

Usually, when you need a new veneer or crown, we create putty impressions and send them away to a laboratory to be handled by skilled dental technicians. The finished restoration is returned to us after two weeks and then fitted. With CEREC, we can design, create and fit brand new custom-designed restorations in a single day, vastly reducing treatment time and ensuring that you can enjoy the benefits of treatment immediately.

The first stage of CEREC treatment is the design phase. We use a camera to take images of your teeth, which are converted into 3D models by advanced computer software. These images are then sent over to the milling machine and the manufacturing process takes place. In just a few minutes, the new restorations will be ready and your dentist can fit them.

The advantages of CEREC

CEREC offers a wealth of benefits for dentists and patients, including:

  • reduced treatment time and instant results
  • increased convenience – you only need to arrange a single treatment session, rather than multiple appointments
  • elimination of temporary restorations
  • greater accuracy
  • more control for dentists
  • no need for putty impressions (this is particularly advantageous for those with a sensitive gag reflex)

What is a Dental Cap?

Tuesday, June 30th, 2015

2823674_blogAt City Dental Leeds, we are proud to offer an extensive range of restorative treatments including dental caps, which are also known as crowns. Crowns are nicknamed caps because they sit over the tooth in a similar way to how a cap sits on your head. We are able to offer same-day CEREC crown treatment or traditional hand-crafted crowns.

What are crowns and why would I need one?

Crowns, or caps, are dental restorations that sit on top of the natural tooth structure to add strength and stability. You may be advised to have a new crown if you have an infected or injured tooth, you have fractured your tooth, you have had root canal treatment or you are having tooth replacement treatment in the form of implant treatment. Crowns can be made from ceramics and metals and they should last for several years.

Crown treatment is designed to add strength to a weakened tooth and the procedure also helps to reduce the risk of an infection spreading through the tooth, as harmful bacteria and decayed tissue are removed prior to the placement of the new crown.

CEREC same-day crown treatment

We offer a choice of CEREC same-day treatment and hand-crafted crown treatment. With CEREC, we use advanced technology to design, create and fit new restorations, including crowns, in a single day. CEREC uses the latest software and milling machinery to design and manufacture new restorations within minutes and this enables us to offer quick, simple and hassle-free treatment.

Traditional crown treatment

We also offer traditional crown treatment, which involves creating impressions of the teeth and sending them away to a dental laboratory, where the crown is made by highly skilled dental technicians. The process usually takes around 2 weeks and the tooth is prepared prior to the new crown being placed; a temporary crown may be fitted between the two appointments.


Everything You Need to Know About CEREC

Tuesday, April 7th, 2015

2904341_blogAt City Dental Leeds, we are always eager to move with the times and ensure our clients have access to the best dental services around and we are very proud to have CEREC technology on-site. With this amazingly innovative technology, we are able to offer hassle-free, bespoke, same-day restorative treatment.

What exactly is CEREC?

CEREC is a form of technology that enables dentists to create same-day restorations on-site. Usually, when a patient needs a new crown, this requires separate appointments to make an impression and then fit the crown two weeks later when it has been made by dental technicians and then returned to the clinic. With CEREC, we design, manufacture and fit the new restoration in a single session an there’s no need for impressions or anything to be sent away; everything is done here and you can enjoy instant results.

CEREC converts camera images of the teeth into detailed models, which are sent to the on-site milling machine. After just a couple of minutes, the manufacturing process is complete and we can then fit the restoration. We are able to make veneers, dental crowns, inlays and onlays with CEREC.

What are the advantages of CEREC?

One of the most obvious advantages of Cerec is the reduced speed of treatment. Processes that usually take two weeks can now be completed in just a single day. There’s no waiting around, no send away and no putty impressions. There’s also no need for temporary restorations, as the new crown or inlay can be fitted immediately. The process is also much more accurate and much less messy. Dentists also have more influence over the design of the new restoration and patients can enjoy the convenience of booking one afternoon off, rather than two or three separate sessions.

Cerec Dental Veneers: Quick Treatment, Timeless Look

Tuesday, March 18th, 2014

944335_blogCerec is an amazing example of how far dentistry has come. Thanks to Cerec, we can make and fit bespoke veneers all in the same day to create a flawless, timeless look.

What is Cerec?

Cerec technology uses photographs of the teeth to create highly detailed 3D images, which are used to design your new veneers. These designs are sent to the milling site and the veneers are made in a matter of minutes. Usually, veneer treatment takes up to 2 weeks, but we are able to offer this incredible treatment in a single session. Cerec also allows us to design and produce dental crowns, inlays and onlays.

Veneers create flawless smiles and they are a great option for people who have chipped or worn teeth and those who would like a brighter, whiter smile. Veneers are wafer-thin shells, which are applied over the teeth to produce an amazing, radiant new smile. There are various shades and shapes to choose from so you can design your perfect smile.

Cerec treatment saves you time and enables you to enjoy your new smile sooner. If you thought veneers were just for celebrities gracing red carpets, think again, our amazing new smile is just around the corner!
