Impression-Free Dentistry!

Here at Buckden Dental Clinic we are now able to offer CEREC (Cad-Cam) technology to create dental crowns and other restorations. This state of the art technology is used to produce beautiful ceramic crowns and inlays all in a single appointment with no need to take impressions or make temporary teeth.

For you, the patient, this means fewer injections, less drilling, no messy impressions and no temporary crowns and less time out of your hectic schedule.

As an alternative to taking impressions, a camera is used to take a digital picture of your tooth. This whole process only takes a few minutes.

Your dentist will then create your crown using the CEREC machine. The CEREC software takes the digital picture of your tooth and converts it into a 3-dimensional virtual model on the computer screen. Within a few minutes, your Dentist clicks a button, and your crown design data is sent to a separate milling machine on site.

A ceramic block that matches your tooth shade is placed in the milling machine. About 20 minutes later, your all-ceramic, tooth-coloured crown is finished and ready to be cemented into place.

Finally, your Dentist tries the crown in your mouth to ensure it fits correctly. The crown is then polished and bonded to your tooth.
