Same-Day Canterbury Dental Crowns

Fine Dentistry Uses CEREC Technology

Same-day CEREC Crowns CanterburyDental crowns are a vital tool used to restore compromised, damaged teeth. But what used to require two (or more) appointments to complete can now be performed in a single visit, thanks to CEREC technology and 3D CAD/CAM techniques.

Reasons for Getting a Crown

A crown is appropriate when a tooth needs to be restored, but too much of it is affected by decay or physical damage. Some examples include

Streamlined Care and Greater Accuracy

With CEREC we’re able to consolidate a two-visit process into one procedure. Rather than prepping your tooth, taking an impression and waiting for an off-site lab to design your crown, it’s digitally planned and milled while you wait or catch up on other dental treatment needs.

After numbing and prepping your tooth, we use a particular handpiece to scan it, creating a digital replica or 3D model of the area in a specialised computer software. We select the appropriate colour and then transfer the data to our on-site CEREC milling machine, which carves your new crown from a solid block of ceramic.

CEREC has been used on over 7 million patients worldwide since 1985, enhancing the efficiency of their dental treatment and eliminating common problems such as human error or mistakes due to transporting materials between dental offices and third-party labs.

Not only are CEREC crowns matched to the rest of your smile, they’re completely metal free and long-lasting. No gooey impressions are necessary!
