cerec technology dentistryCEREC is a key part of the technology that makes it possible for patients and referrals visiting our Gloucestershire studios to have a bespoke crown made and fitted within an hour.

CEREC Technology

When using CEREC, the process utilises advanced softward to facilitate good crown or veneer design and fabrication:

  • The tooth is prepared as normal
  • Instead of taking traditional impressions using putty, a digital image is taken using a special camera
  • The CEREC software converts the digital image into a 3D computerised model
  • The CEREC software is then used to design the new tooth/teeth to fit precisely
  • A ceramic colour is chosen to match the patient's surrounding teeth as closely as possible
  • When the design has been approved, this data is sent to a milling machine, which fabricates your new tooth from a high-quality ceramic block
  • Milling process takes between 5-30 minutes depending on the tooth and technology used
  • The tooth may then be colour-adjusted using a light stain for the best possible match
  • Finally the new tooth is polished or glazed before being cemented into place on the prepared tooth or implant

Advantages of CEREC

  • Everything is carried out in a single visit -
    • Patients only need to visit the dentist once
    • Less time off work
    • Only one lot of local anaesthetic
    • Shorter investment of time
    • Less intrusive procedure with faster recovery time
  • No temporary restorations, which can be uncomfortable as well as unsightly
  • Total control over the tooth aesthetics and design

Testimonial from a happy client

testimonial quoteI can't thank TJ and Torjus enough. I know having an award winning lab and a dentist on the same site has given me exactly what I wanted. They have given me my life back and I can't recommend his studio and skill high enough.testimonial quote
