Achieve the Perfect Smile in One Sitting!

CEREC is a revolutionary method of dental restoration and the ultimate in digital dentistry technology. Using computer-aided 3D design and manufacturing, it is now possible to have crowns, inlays, onlays and veneers fitted in one appointment, with remarkable precision and accuracy.

  • 30 million CEREC tooth restorations, worldwide
  • Accurate 3D digital technology for the perfect, secure fit
  • Single appointment crown, onlay, inlay and veneer procedure
  • edically approved, durable ceramic implants.

The pioneering CEREC technology at CBC Dental Studio means that your dentist can now construct, produce and insert perfectly fitted, high-quality ceramic restorations without even stepping out of the room.

How Does It Work?

  • Your dentist will make a digital impression of your teeth with an intraoral scanner or camera and use the 3D map to design your crown/onlay.
  • The design is sent wirelessly to a milling machine to be constructed out of a colour-matched ceramic block in just 6 to 15 minutes.
  • Your dentist will finally add the finishing touches to the restoration by painting, polishing, and glazing it, before cementing it on the prepared teeth.

Don’t wait any longer, request a consultation today and discover how this latest technique can give you the smile you always wanted, in one, simple appointment with no need for:

  • Extensive treatment times over multiple visits
  • Uncomfortable dental impression procedures requiring putty
  • Ill fitting, low quality implants that require frequent replacement

What Kind of Benefits do CEREC Crowns Provide?

The most obvious benefit of CEREC same day crowns is the speed and convenience of having this procedure done in one day. Using this treatment option also eliminates the need for an ill-fitting temporary crown.

How Long Can a CEREC Same Day Crown Last??

With proper care and normal caution exercised in regards to the new dental crown, it’s normal for a CEREC crown to last well over ten years or more.

What Does “Same-Day” Dentistry Refer To?

In the past, or in practices where CEREC is not used, if a patient needed a crown or an inlay/onlay, it took at least two visits separated by two weeks to fix.

The first visit took 1 ½ hours to shape the tooth and take a gooey impression that was then sent to a lab. The patient wore a plastic temporary for two weeks if it even stayed on. The second visit was another hour to remove the temporary, clean things up, and glue the restoration onto the tooth.

At CBC Dental Studio, we use CEREC to take a digital impression with a camera wand and then design, fabricate and install the restoration in 1 ½ hours, often while we do other things like a cleaning … No second appointment, no temporaries … done!

Why Should I Care If My Dentist Uses CEREC Digital Technology?

Embracing digital technology causes a practice to operate with its eyes wide open to the ongoing possibilities of better overall dental care at a greater value to patients. The CEREC dentist is the diagnostician, surgeon and lab. In other words, “the buck stops here”, as the saying goes. The CEREC dentist knows the intimate details of the dental situation start-to-finish and has infinite flexibility in producing an excellent result.

Is this treatment option safe?

Yes, it most certainly is. Bleaching with these carbamide/hydrogen peroxide products, under the supervision of a dental professional, have been clinically proven to be absolutely safe for teeth and gums.

Do All Dentists Who Use CEREC Digital Technology Produce The Same Results?

As with the use of any technology, the operator must rely on judgment, skill, education, support and ethics to provide excellent results. Our specialists are proud to be trained by CEREC representatives personally. Our personnel stays up to date on the technology, refines their skills through continual discussions and participation in seminars and webinars.

Is The Material Used For Restorations Made In Your Practice The Same As From A Good Lab?

Yes, the good dental labs in the UK and our milling unit use the same exact materials. The material of choice these days is Ivoclar’s Emax; strong, beautiful, accurate, great bonding strength and biologically healthy! Dozens of different materials are available for different applications.

How Can Using CEREC Be Healthier For Me?

The answer lies in the concept of “minimally invasive”. When a dentist is able to fabricate a restoration same-day and with infinite choices for the design of the restoration, the result is the preservation of natural tooth structure and an optimum bond of the restoration to the tooth. Gone are the days of every cavity or replaced filling turning into a full coverage crown. Instead, partial or minimal coverage crowns are the norm.

Do You Use CEREC In-Practice for Every Possible Restoration?

No. There is still a place for the master craftsman. When it comes to a full-mouth rehabilitation, we involve a dental lab where the case can first be prepared in wax and then studied closely with all of the ideas for an optimal outcome shared between dentist and technician. While the patient is relaxing into their new bite and cosmetics while wearing custom interim restorations, the technician will fabricate all of the final restorations and the study of the case repeats. Once approved by all, the restorations are finished and polished with every attention to detail and sent back to our practice. With the master craftsman involved, we have the perfect team for finishing cases that involve up to 28 teeth at a time.

What Else Is CEREC Digital Technology Used For?

Once we figured out we could take digital impressions, the whole way of doing and thinking about dentistry changed!

Here are just a few more applications of the technology:

• Copying nature: CEREC digital technology allows us to copy a patient’s existing teeth with amazing accuracy. One application of this is when a patient presents with a tooth that feels and looks great but is decayed or fractured. This can be surprisingly complicated under some circumstances such as fixing one single front tooth perfectly, managing a super sensitive bite, fixing a tooth under a partial denture, maintaining a patient who clenches and grinds heavily, helping an Alzheimer/dementia/memory loss patient who needs rapid care with perfect results.

By digitally copying all or just what we like about a tooth, we can then fabricate a restoration nearly identical to the original tooth. This is impossible without digital copying using CEREC and has proven to be perhaps the biggest advantage that patients immediately recognise.

• Implants: With CEREC technology, we are able to change the digital workflow and costs of implantology so much that we can literally reduce the patient’s
