Same-Day Restorations, Vancouver Dentist

Restoring Teeth in Just One Appointment

CEREC (Chair-side Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramic) is used to create metal-free restorations for bridges, dental implants, inlays, onlays, dental veneers, and dental crowns. CEREC eliminates the need for messy impressions, and it has played a phenomenal role in changing the way the dental world looks at dental crowns.  

Dental crowns are a versatile restoration that can be used to reinforce and strengthen damaged teeth, cover dental implants or improve the alignment, shape, and/or appearance of a tooth.

While in the past, it could have taken three dental appointments to be fitted for a dental crown, 21st century dentistry techniques and technology mean that porcelain dental crowns can now be created and fitted in a single dental visit.

Thanks to CEREC technology, same-day crowns from Oceanfront Dental are fashioned and created in-house, eliminating the usual wait time for conventional dental crowns.

What to Expect During a CEREC Appointment

Dr. Seddon and his team will begin by taking digital pictures of the tooth or teeth that are to be crowned. Those pictures are fed into a computer to give the team a clear picture of the tooth. This enables them to create a tooth-colored CEREC Crown using CAD/CAM dental fabrication.

Once your dentist is satisfied with the digital images, the pictures are sent to the milling machine for manufacture. This process takes about 45 minutes. During this time, you are free to relax, watch TV, check out your social media pages, or catch up on email.

When your new porcelain crown is ready, it will be checked for fit, colour, and comfort. After your porcelain dental crown has been fitted, our Vancouver team at Oceanfront Dental will cement it into place.

CEREC® also allows our team to create dental veneers and other dental restorations in-house.
