CEREC – Crown in an Hour
Lengthy dental procedures can make a dent in your timetable, and with our busy lifestyle, there are few moments to lose across the course of your week. That is why Newcastle Dental Care makes use of CEREC, the Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. This state-of-the-art technology makes use of CAD/CAM programs and 3D printers to greatly decrease the number of visits you need to get fitted with your new crown, inlay, onlay, or veneer, getting you back on schedule in as little as one hour.
Developed in the United States, CEREC has streamlined our methods of creating and fitting crowns. The system uses advanced scans to create a detailed digital impression, before creating the computer-designed prosthetic on a 3D printer, right there in the office. Sculpted from a ceramic block, these implants are tough, long-lasting, biocompatible, and resistant to bacteria and decay.
The remarkable accuracy of the imaging and the mould allows the crown or onlay to be fitted well to any surface. It means less tooth grinding from your dentist, greater preservation of your natural tooth, and ensures that our patients aren’t required to wait for their prosthetic to arrive from the lab. It also means they don’t need to have a temporary patch fitted over the stricken tooth. In the fast-paced world of today, every moment counts, and Newcastle Dental Care can ensure that your procedure is performed both correctly, and with great effectiveness.
