CEREC is a modern innovative and advanced technology that we use in our dental practice here in Edinburgh.
In a single visit, our dentists can manufacture dental prostheses such as dental crowns, bridges, inlays, onlays, and veneers with safety and accuracy and restore your teeth and your smile.
The traditional dental procedure.
In most cases you would have to visit your dentist twice to have a new dental crown, a dental bridge, inlay, onlay or veneer. At the first visit, the dentist would prepare your tooth and take impressions to send them to a dental laboratory that would fabricate the prosthesis. Sometimes a temporary prosthesis such as a temporary dental crown would be placed. After a few weeks, in the second visit, the dentist would place the prosthesis.
The dental procedure using Cerec.
A single visit is required to get your new dental prosthesis. We use a 3D camera instead of the traditional impression tray to take digital impressions of your teeth and your jaw. The cutting-edge software of Cerec will produce an exceptional proposal fast and accurately and we will then fabricate on site the ceramic restoration ready to be applied immediately. The Cerec method, a technology that is used by dentists worldwide since 1987, offers us full control over the quality of your restoration.
The benefits for the patient
Your ceramic restoration is ready in just one visit. This single visit means that you will only have local anesthesia once, you won’t be bothered by the procedure of taking dental impressions or feel anxious due to the use of temporary crowns. This procedure is highly recommended for people with dental phobia or just nervous patients. It is less stressful since you won’t spend more time than needed on the dental chair.
