The good news is you can! Here at Friars Walk in Dunstable we have  CEREC technology, the CEREC system consists of a digital infrared camera that takes optical impressions of a patient’s teeth, a CAD (computer-aided design) machine that designs the restoration, and a CAM (computer-aided manufacturing) unit that mills the crown

There’s great benefits of choosing this technology. If you’re searching for pros and cons of opting in for this method, we’ll start with the benefits of CEREC Crowns:

  • The entire process only takes 2 hours.
  • Digital Impressions are created of your mouth in a matter of minutes.
  • Creation of ceramic crown using our milling unit ensures accuracy & precision.
  • CEREC Crowns look & feel like a real tooth.
  • Aesthetically, there’s no other type of crown that can compete with a CEREC Crown.
  • They can last on average 10-15 years; but if taken care of, they may last much longer.
  • No temporaries, no impressions, and less Post-operative sensitivity.

Now we simply scan the tooth and area of the mouth where the crown is to be fitted, feed the information into the Cerec computer and the rest is done by this new technology. We can literally create and fit your dental same day crown in one sitting. Which is a massive improvement on the alternative.
