We have recently invested in a Cerec machine and furnace which enables us to make permanent crowns and bridges here at the practice.
It works by using a camera which scans your teeth and by using a specially designed computer we can create a crown or bridge which will accurately and comfortably fit in your mouth. The crowns are made in a milling machine here at the practice and the furnace enables us to place glazing onto the crowns to make them look as natural as possible. Your teeth will be prepared, and your restoration fitted in the same appointment, so you no longer have to wait two weeks with temporary crowns before getting your permanent restoration.
Because a camera is used to get an accurate image of the shape of your teeth, we no longer need to take those gunky impressions! The procedure is a lot quicker and a lot more comfortable for you.
For more information on this procedure please contact the practice to book an appointment.
