What’s CEREC technology?

Digital technology that allows for same-day major dental work – that’s the big stuff like crowns, ceramic fillings, inlays and onlays.

The benefits

Procedures that once took several appointments can now be done in a day. CEREC technology provides a convenient alternative to traditional major dental work, with added benefits like:

  • No unpleasant impressions.
  • Only one local anaesthetic.
  • Results look and function almost like natural teeth.
  • Stronger than normal filling materials.

How CEREC technology works

Our dentists will first determine if CEREC technology is the best treatment for you.
In just one day:

  1. Your tooth preparation is finished.
  2. An intra-oral camera photographs your teeth.
  3. A 3D model of your dental work is designed on the computer.
  4. A special milling unit creates the dental work from a ceramic block.
  5. Your dentist will fit the dental work and make any necessary adjustments.

Will CEREC technology cost extra?

No – using this innovative technology won’t cost you any more.
