Single Visit Digital Onlays & Crowns – CEREC
A new reason to smile is only one visit away! CEREC is a new technology that restores damaged teeth or teeth with large fillings needing replacement in a single appointment. The technology uses a high-quality ceramic material that matches the natural color and strength of the tooth, restoring the tooth to its original state. When combined with the exceptional skills of your Capital Dentistry dentist, CEREC allows us to be more conservative and salvage more of the healthy part of your tooth when preparing it for the new restoration. Capital Dentistry dentists in Ottawa and Gatineau can use CEREC to help you with chipped, broken or stained teeth, as well as with teeth with older, deteriorating fillings needing replacement. They are a great solution and alternative for anyone needing fillings, crowns or veneers. CEREC uses CAD/CAM technology to aid in the design and milling of restorations such as veneers, onlays, partial and full crowns, and all other single-tooth restorations. The process starts with a scan of your affected tooth, after which a unique ceramic restoration is created right in the office. The digital scan of the tooth replaces the need for a putty impression! The restoration is designed to fit your tooth perfectly and minimize the amount of time you spend in the dental chair. The restorations are made from a single block of high-quality, biocompatible, anti-abrasive and plaque-resistant ceramic material. The CEREC system allows all Capital Dentistry clinics to offer a long-lasting, cosmetic alternative to silver mercury or white plastic fillings. One of the greatest conveniences that CEREC provides is the ability to complete the required treatment and restoration of the affected tooth all in one appointment! This avoids the patient having to return for a second appointment, to be frozen a second time, and to have to struggle with a temporary crown for a few weeks until their final restoration is fabricated at the lab. It is a time-saving treatment as well as a tooth-conserving treatment. Capital Dentistry clinics welcome new patients!
