Ever wondered how dental crowns are made? Did you wish there was a way to make fewer visits to get them done?
Well, look no more! We are here to offer you a single day dental crowns.
We are super excited about our New Futuristic high tech machine. One word, CEREC. It stands for Ceramic Reconstruction.
It’s a machine that creates dental Crowns and Veneers dental Crowns and Veneers. It’s a machine that allows your dentist to scan the area. Which requires some tender love and care. We will be using a powder-free lightweight camera that does full 3D jaw scans. This little camera also allows to determine the colour of your teeth.
CEREC perfects the correct shade for your new porcelain dental crowns/veneer. These scans produce 3D imaging using the CEREC software on the computer. Your dentist then designs your new crown or veneer.
The next process is where you get to watch the magic unfold on site.
Machine precisely shapes and fully contours the ceramic block. Ceramic block can be Zirconia, E-max or any full ceramic material.
That is inserted to create the perfect tooth.
The machine communicates with the software and only takes between 4 – 12 minutes to create.
This means a single visit to the dentist! Yay! The next machine to follow is the CEREC Speed Fire which sinters and glazes.
It’s the quickest furnace currently out and has speedy heating cycles. It sinters a crown in 10 – 15 minutes.
The process involves heating the material just below the melting point.
It's sort of like a little oven that we bake the tooth in to make it stronger and harder. The new crown will be just like the real tooth. Once we have a dental prosthesis, we then place and fit this on your tooth. Instant Smile makeover.
We’re glad you asked. Gone is the days of several injections, or a temporary prosthesis.
Then you had to put up with it until an off-site lab. Then sent it back to your Dentist.
Which means follow-up appointments.
The endurance of the materials and the method, CEREC offers are built to last.
The ceramic material is similar to gold in terms of its strength. It means a longer-lasting prosthesis.
Did we mention this process only takes one hour!! Need we say more.
