Single Visit Smiles » CEREC Single Visit Smile Makeover

Alison Reviews
Rothley Lodge Dental Practice

I had 20 year old crowns I wasn’t happy with, I used to cover my face. Knowing Simon and how good he is with CEREC I trusted him to complete the change on the front 8 teeth. I’m extremely happy now, a lot more confident.

In today’s world, few of us have the time to visit the dentist for multiple appointments in order to receive dental treatment. At the same time, sitting for hours in a dental chair is not ideal either. One solution to this is called CEREC, a state-of-the-art machine that can make permanent crowns, veneers or onlays for you while you are still in the chair. Here is how it works:

  1. The dentist will prepare your tooth using a small drill.
  2. A special camera is then used to take an image of your teeth which is then uploaded to the design unit.
  3. This image is uploaded to a CAD/CAM unit, which creates a 3D model of your new tooth.
  4. The model is used by a milling machine, which creates your new tooth from a block of high quality ceramic that best matches your surrounding teeth.
  5. The restoration is then fixed into place.
