Look and Feel Great
CEREC™ by Sirona Dental is one of the world’s leading systems for dental crowns, allowing the fabrication of all ceramic dental restorations in one office visit.
With CEREC™ dentistry, you can be in and out with a permanent all ceramic filling or dental crown in a single visit to Burnside Dental Practice, your Adelaide Dentist. This means fewer injections, less drilling, and less time out of your schedule for dental care.
Using cutting edge technology, CAD/CAM dentistry can offer you restorations that not only look and feel great but also restore your teeth to their natural strength and function.
The procedure involves one of our experienced dentists examining the tooth and determining the most appropriate treatment for you. They will administer an anaesthetic and prepare your tooth for the restoration, removing any decayed or weakened tooth tissue. This preparation is similar to what you might experience in many other restorative procedures.
If this is a procedure that you are interested in learning more about, please contact us through our form and we’ll be happy to answer your questions.
How Does it Work?
The CEREC™ machine helps the dentist create the restoration for your tooth. The CEREC™ 3D software takes a digital picture and converts it into a 3-dimensional virtual model. Our dentists then design the dental crown restoration using the CEREC™ 3D computer program.
Within a few minutes, a click of a button sends the restoration design data to a separate milling machine in the office. About 10 – 20 minutes later, your all-ceramic, tooth-coloured restoration is finished and ready to bond in place.
Your dentist will test the dental crown restoration in your mouth to ensure proper fit and bite. It’s then polished and bonded to the prepared tooth. Your tooth is restored with no “temporary” or return trip necessary. All of this can be done in a single appointment!
