CEREC - CAD/CAM Restorations
Basinview Dental Centre is pleased to offer our patients the latest in single-visit ceramic/ porcelain restorations. These restorations are a long-term restorative choice, especially when a tooth has been severely compromised by fractures or large cavities. The restorations are designed using optical imaging (digital photos), thus eliminating the need for impressions. The images are directly uploaded into a design software whereby the restoration can be custom built to match the lost tooth structure and fit to the opposing bite. The restorations are then milled from a solid block of ceramic which is almost identical to the tooth's original strength. These restorations are so strong, the tooth can be built back up into its original shape, form and function.
A wide variety of materials are available for these restorations which vary in both strength and cost. Veneers, inlays, onlays and full coverage crowns can be fabricated using CEREC technology. Please ask Dr. Luke Haslam and his staff which material would be best for your single appointment ceramic restorations.
