Crowns in a Day
CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, or Ceramic Reconstruction) allows your dentist to restore teeth in a single appointment approximately one hour long. This is done with a variety of computer assisted technologies including 3D imaging and CAD/CAM. CEREC ceramic products include crowns, veneers, onlays and inlays.
CEREC allows for a great quality restoration that requires less marginal space. It is durable and without question the most cost effective restoration available today.
After the tooth is prepared, a camera takes a 3D image of the tooth. The computer then reads this information and automatically mills out the restoration from a ceramic block. The restoration is then bonded to the tooth and the restoration is complete!
CEREC restorations are biocompatible and have similar characteristics to natural, healthy tooth enamel. The surface is smooth making bacteria adherence more difficult. The color of the restoration is matached to your natural tooth color and appearance.
CEREC will brighten up your life and your self-confidence will be restored.
The whole team at Cowichan Valley Dental is amazing, and I have never trusted a dental office more. They are professional while still being fun, and my teeth have never looked better 🙂
