CEREC ceramic reconstruction

CEREC ceramic reconstruction is a relatively new technique that can be used to rebuild a tooth - for instance, instead of a traditional crown - or to replace a defective filling.

After the decayed tooth material or defective filling is removed, a 3D image of the affected area is taken with a special camera. Then, with the help of highly accurate computerised instruments, a small piece of ceramic material is designed and milled to fit the space exactly, and to provide a new hard-wearing tooth surface that blends in smoothly with its surroundings.

With CEREC there's no need for impressions, multiple appointments or temporary crowns - so the reconstruction can be completed in a single treatment session lasting between one and two hours.
