What is CEREC Dentistry and what are the benefits?

CEREC Dentistry Porcelain Veneers and Restorations Sydney SDAI

One visit with CEREC – Get veneers or crowns done quickly and effectively

The team at Sydney Dental Aesthetics & Implants (SDAI) in Martin Place Sydney CBD pride themselves on utilising powerful technology and effective modern techniques to keep them at the forefront in dental innovation, enabling them to provide optimal care and results for their patients. Using our in-house CEREC machine as a popular and quick dental service for patients is a great example.

In the past, restorations and crowns were a long, painful process that people avoided due to the cost and time wastage caused by multiple visits to the dentist. Today thanks to CEREC, everything can be done in your lunch break! There are less injections and drillings, and the added bonus of getting high strength, tooth reinforcing porcelain that matches the colour, function, and strength of your natural teeth.

So, what is CEREC?

The term CEREC as used in dentistry stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramic. This is a system that uses CAD/CAM (computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing) to fabricate dental restorations. They are in essence, a camera, computer, and manufacturer of precision restorations – all rolled into one.

CEREC technology uses the latest 3D imaging software to create an accurate and detailed representation of your teeth which is the key to getting a perfect, flawless restoration.

What can CEREC be used for?

CEREC is fantastic for the following:

  • during amalgam removal procedures
  • to fix and replace damaged, decayed, and failed fillings
  • new crown, veneer, or inlay placement

Benefits of CEREC

Saves time

With CEREC your dental treatment can be completed all done in one sitting!

Everything from start to finish is carried out during one, simple, convenient appointment and shouldn’t take any longer than 1-1.5 hours.

More comfortable

If you ask any dentist or patient, often their least favourite procedure is traditional impression taking. Not only is it messy but it’s also uncomfortable for the patient. With a CEREC machine however, impressions are done digitally using high tech camera equipment. So no more messy impression taking, just easy, simple, and convenient technology.

Creates a natural looking smile

At Sydney Dental Aesthetics & Implants, we only use the most current rigorously tested biocompatible materials available. These materials can be adjusted to match the natural shade of surrounding healthy teeth creating a naturally beautiful smile.

More affordable

The CEREC system can cut out a lot of costs because your dentist won’t need to hold stock of vast quantities of impression-taking material. It also means the laboratory fees and expenses are no longer required, which can translate into a more affordable end product for the patient.

You might be a CEREC candidate if:
  • You’ve been told you need a new crown, porcelain veneer, inlay, onlay or bridge
  • You have a cracked tooth, old failing restorations, or any large damage on your teeth
  • You are interested in replacing old metal restorations with biocompatible restorations
  • You need a large restoration placed
