Same-Day Crowns and Restorations
Finding time for life’s many demands is a challenge, especially for busy families. To make your dental care more efficient, our dentists introduced same-day CEREC restorations in both our New Lambton and Swansea surgeries. CEREC makes it possible for you to receive durable and natural-looking crowns, inlays and veneers in a single visit without compromising on quality.
Since our dentists, Dr Ricardo Paez, Dr Maria Paez, Dr Neville Bo and Dr Jonathan Michael, oversee the entire process, our patients are always thrilled with their results.
Crowns Repair Damaged Teeth
When the structure of the tooth becomes unstable due to deep decay or a broken tooth, a dental crown protects the tooth by encasing it in durable ceramic. Your crown, sometimes called a cap, will absorb the force of chewing and can prolong the life of your tooth.
Crowns solve a number of common issues:
- Rebuilding worn teeth
- Improving tooth colour
- Reshapingirregular teeth
- Protecting root canal-treated teeth
Our dentists will remove the damaged structure, digitally scan the tooth to capture the size and shape and upload the information to our CEREC software to design the crown while you relax.
We Make Beautiful Smiles with Ceramic Veneers
Perhaps the most dramatic cosmetic dental improvement comes from veneers, which cover the front of the tooth with a natural-looking restoration to correct the appearance of the tooth.
- Add length to worn teeth
- Correct uneven spaces and gaps between teeth
- Brighten dark or stained teeth
- Create a uniform smile
- Make crooked teeth appear straight
We use innovative technology, called Digital Smile Design, when planning multiple veneers and full-smile makeovers for optimum results.
Inlays and Onlays (Indirect Fillings)
Ceramic indirect fillings repair cavities caused by decay by sealing the tooth to keep out bacteria. Inlays cover the area of the tooth between the cusps; onlays cover the cusp of the tooth.
CAD/CAM Dental Technology
Computer-aided design and manufacture (CAD/CAM) provides precisely made restorations that fit and function flawlessly. Rather than requiring bulky impression paste, a digital scan of the tooth will determine the size and shape of the restoration and create it in our in-house ceramic mill. Our dentists use their artistic expertise to match the colour and shading to your smile.
CEREC same-day ceramic restorations eliminate the need for temporary crowns and veneers, along with the weeks-long wait time required for lab-created dentistry.
Caring for Ceramic Restorations
Your ceramic restorations require the same care as your enamel. Avoid anything that might damage a natural tooth; fruit stones, ice and teeth grinding can all cause damage.
