CEREC Same-Day Restorations
Repair Your Smile in One Day
CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) technology eliminates the need for multiple appointments and temporary restorations. With CEREC, our dentists can create a 3D image of your mouth and design a custom restoration that fits perfectly.
Less invasive procedures can also be performed with CEREC technology since only the affected area needs to be treated. This helps to reduce discomfort, speed healing and decrease risk of infection.
Our Antigonish dental team is proud to offer this technology to help make our patients' restorative care easier and more convenient.
How does CEREC work?
CEREC is a system that can help our dentists design, fabricate and fit a new crown, veneer, onlay or inlay in a single visit. A tooth-coloured restoration means no more silver fillings discolouring smiles. The filling is natural-looking and compatible with tissue in the mouth, anti-abrasive and plaque-resistant.
We use a special camera to take an accurate digital picture of your damaged tooth. The optical impression is then transferred and displayed on a colour computer screen, where we use CAD technology to design the restoration. Then CAM (Computer Aided Design / Computer Aided Manufacturing) technology takes over and creates the restoration you want, all automatically.
