Calgary CEREC Dentistry
CEREC technology allows for single visit dentistry for ceramic crowns, veneers, inlays, and onlays, using a biocompatible ceramic. This dental ceramic or dental porcelain is aesthetic, strong and durable. CEREC crowns make it possible for a broken tooth to be repaired and look and feel natural. CEREC veneers can be applied to the front of teeth to create a brand new smile.
CEREC Technology — Same Day CEREC Crowns
At our Calgary SE office for Friends & Family Dental Health, we utilize top of the line CEREC technology to keep your teeth at their best. Our cutting-edge CEREC dental restoration machine allows for 3D milled ceramic crowns to be created in a day without any messy impressions, no finicky temporary crowns, and no need to take extra time off work. The system is completely digital, meaning we create the 3D scans and designs efficiently and to specification, then permanently cement the dental crown over the tooth in just one visit.
What are dental crowns?
A dental crown, or dental cap as it is sometimes called, is a dental restoration that covers the entire tooth to strengthen a tooth that has been weakened. It looks, feels, and functions like your natural tooth.
When is a dental crown needed?
A tooth is considered to be weakened when a considerable portion of it has been replaced with filling material, usually due to a large cavity or a root canal. Teeth with large fillings that replace entire cusps or undermine cusps of teeth are best crowned before they break apart. Sometimes a tooth will be cracked, which also necessitates a dental crown.
What are dental veneers?
A dental veneer is a thin layer of natural looking ceramic that we carefully place on your teeth to improve your smile.
When is a dental veneer needed?
CEREC veneers do not stain, are wear-resistant, and are very long lasting. They can be used to close gaps, change the shape and colour of your teeth, and even straighten teeth without orthodontics. We can do anywhere from just one to all your front teeth to give you the smile you want.
