cerec - same day crowns and restorations

Cerec has revolutionised our approach to the creation of impeccable crowns, inlays and onlays, saving our patients time and producing flawless results. First we take a digital impression of your tooth. Your new tooth is then designed and milled from high quality ceramic before being fitted. The Cerec system means no repeat visits and no temporary crowns. Our busy clients appreciate the savings in time, and love the natural looking results.

Cerec is a revolutionary system that enables your dentist to design, fabricate and fit a new crown, veneer, onlay or inlay in a single visit, a procedure that would normally take at least two weeks, if not more! The Cerec procedure was developed at Zurich University and has been successfully deployed in dental practices since 1985.


The Cerec treatment procedure means:

No conventional impressions

The Cerec 3D measuring camera scans the prepared tooth in just a few seconds. This eliminates the need for unpleasant silicone impressions.

No temporaries

Cerec 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 periods

Because 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.
