What is Cerec?
Cerec is a form of technology, which has revolutionised the way dentists provide restorative treatment for their patients. Traditionally, dentists send impressions of the teeth away to dental technicians and then fit new restorations around 2 weeks later, but with Cerec, we can complete the entire process, from the design concept to the finished result, in just a single day. Cerec also enables us to do everything on-site, which means that the process is easy, convenient and very quick.
With Cerec technology, images of the teeth are converted into 3D models, which are sent across to the milling machine; the milling process takes minutes and once it is complete, the new restoration can be fitted.
Cerec enables us to create bespoke crowns, inlays, onlays and veneers without the need for temporary restorations, putty moulds or waiting around for 2 weeks.
How can Cerec benefit me?
Cerec is hugely beneficial for any patient that needs restorative treatment. The treatment process is incredibly convenient and quick, there’s no need to find time for repeat appointments and you can have the permanent restoration fitted straightaway. The process is more accurate and it affords dentists and patients more influence in the design stage.
