What is a Same-Day Restoration?
Placing a dental crown, inlay or onlay would typically require more than one appointment at the dentist, but by using CEREC technology, our dentists can often perform this procedure in one easy visit.
CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) allows for the fabrication of same-day ceramic dental restorations. Our Swift Current dentists use this system to replace crowns, inlays and onlays in a single appointment.
Placed atop teeth to restore their function and appearance, crowns are porcelain caps that are used to cover dental implants, prevent a cracked tooth from further deteriorating, or attach bridges. They can also help to restore a stained or discoloured tooth to its natural appearance.
Inlays & Onlays
Tooth-coloured porcelain fillings are used to repair cavities when damage is too extensive for a standard dental filling. Inlays and onlays are ideal when too much tooth enamel has been lost for a standard filling to work. They are typically used for molars.
A CEREC restoration can allow for fewer injections, less drilling, and less time out of your busy schedule for restorative dental appointments.
