Cerec

CerecLogo11

Many people now opt for tooth coloured white fillings which offer a natural looking, strong and safe alternative to amalgam.

Cerec ceramic fillings can be placed quickly and easily. They avoid the use of any metals, instead incorporating all natural materials- so are ideal for those who may be concerned about the safety of metal-base fillings and look to avoid them.

Cerec restorations do not require impressions to be taken and, using the sophisticated CAD/CAM system, it is possible for your restoration to be manufactured and fitted in just one appointment. Using 3D images of your teeth taken on our cameras your restoration will be milled in the surgery within minutes. No temporary work is required and Cerec can be used for inlays, onlays, crowns, veneers. It is suitable for use on all teeth.

Why not call us today for more information. We would be happy to answer any questions you might have.

CEREC – a procedure with a long tradition

The CEREC procedure was developed at Zurich University and has been successfully deployed in dental practices since 1985 – i.e. for more than 25 years.

Worldwide more than 25,000 practices in over 50 countries work with the CEREC system.

Since 1985 over 8 million patients have been treated using the CEREC procedure. More than 20 million ceramic restorations have been created and placed.

Long-term clinical studies demonstrate that, in terms of durability, CEREC restorations are at least equivalent to gold restorations.

Depending on the individual case, CEREC fillings can achieve even better results than gold fillings.

The CEREC treatment procedure means:

  • No conventional impressionsThe CEREC 3D measuring camera scans the prepared tooth in just a few seconds. This eliminates the need for unpleasant silicone impressions.
  • No temporariesCEREC restorations are milled out of a solid ceramic block in just a few minutes. They are then ready to be placed immediately. This eliminates the need for temporary fillings and crowns. It also means that you need only one appointment. And you don’t have to wait for days on end until the ceramic filling is finished.
  • No long waiting periodsBecause CEREC restorations can be placed immediately, you need only one appointment. And you benefit from tooth restorations which have demonstrated their durability time and time again.

The CEREC procedure step by step

  1. Before treatment begins we inform you about the benefits of CEREC.
  2. After removing the decayed tissue or the defective amalgam filling we create a 3D image of the tooth with the aid of the CEREC camera.
  3. The restoration is designed on the monitor of the CEREC acquisition unit.
  4. The CEREC milling unit machines the restoration out of a ceramic block.
  5. The milled restoration is bonded directly to your tooth.

To our Patients of NW London Smile Centre,

Our team have been working tirelessly to keep our Dental Practice a safe environment for you. As a Dental Practice, we work in an environment where the prevention of the spread of a whole range of infections is woven into everything we do. In addition to our usual meticulous cross infection measures, we have been paying particularly close attention to all government guidance and updates related to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Given the unprecedented situation in the UK, we feel it is essential that we do our part to reduce the spread of this virus and so. it is with very heavy hearts that we have taken the decision to postpone all routine examinations, treatments and hygiene appointments. This is not a decision we have taken lightly but we feel it is our responsibility to protect you, our valued patients, our team and all our families.

However, looking after the health of our patients is our absolute priority and so we will be maintaining a remote telephone service advice for emergencies only; these include:

  • Severe pain for over 48 hours
  • Facial Swelling
  • Trauma and uncontrolled bleeding

Should you have any of those above please contact our telephone triage service on 07702 207 233

We understand this is inconvenient and it may mean outstanding treatment timelines are extended but we will reconvene normal service as soon as it is safe to do so. If your appointment needs to be postponed, one of our team will be in touch shortly.

Thank you for all your support during these uncertain times.

Please stay safe, please stay at home and we look forward to seeing you all soon!
