Our state-of-the-art Surrey CEREC ceramic tooth restoration technology allows us to provide our dental patients with permanent porcelain, metal-free restorations - crowns, onlays, veneers and partial crowns - in just one office visit.
What are CEREC non-metal, ceramic tooth restorations?
CEREC, a dental technology developed by Sirona Dental Systems, is the world's only non-metal, porcelain system for the fabrication of ceramic dental restorations (permanent ceramic crowns, onlays, or veneers) in one office visit. For the patient, this means fewer injections, less drilling, and less time out of their hectic schedule for dental care.
Most dental restorative methods require more than one visit to the dentist. On the first visit, your tooth is prepared, an impression is taken, and a temporary restoration is placed on your tooth. On the second appointment, a few weeks later, the temporary is pried off and a permanent restoration is installed.
Our Surrey CEREC ceramic tooth restorations aren’t just convenient. They are also healthy. With CEREC, strong, tooth-coloured procelain materials that closely match the composition of natural tooth structure are used to restore your teeth to their natural strength, beauty and function. Also, the non-metal materials are chemically bonded to your tooth, so the dentist can save as much healthy tooth tissue as possible while providing you with a non-metal, ceramic dental restoration that strengthens your tooth.
CEREC can be used for more that just crowns and fillings. It is capable of producing any single tooth restoration, e.g., a chipped or discoloured front tooth can be repaired with a porcelain anterior crown or veneer. Your smile makes a lasting first impression... enhance it with CEREC!
