At our dental practice in Pembroke, our dentists use CEREC® to create and place dental crowns, veneers, inlays and onlays in the same day. No impressions or temporaries needed - just tooth-coloured restorations in one appointment.
What is a Same-Day Restoration?
Placing a dental crown, inlay or onlay typically requires more than one visit to the dentist. However, our dentist can use CEREC technology to perform the entire procedure in one easy visit.
CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) is a system that supports the fabrication of same-day ceramic dental restorations. Our dentists in Pembroke use CEREC technology to place crowns, veneers, inlays and onlays in just one appointment.
Crowns are placed on top of teeth to restore their function and appearance. Used to attach bridges, repair a cracked tooth, restore a discoloured tooth to its natural appearance or cover implants, these porcelain caps can often endure more than 10 years of use when properly maintained and cared for.
Custom-made veneers are bonded to the front of your natural tooth to help improve symmetry, colour and shape of your smile. These razor-think pieces of durable-tooth-shaped porcelain mimic natural enamel's smoothness and translucency.
Inlays & Onlays
These tooth-coloured porcelain fillings are used to repair cavities when damage is too extensive for a standard dental filling. Inlays and onlays are typically used for molars or pre-molars.
The Benefits of CEREC
With CEREC, you'll likely have fewer injections and less drilling. Plus, you won't need to come in for as many dental appointments.
