What are the Same Day
Crowns and Bridges?

Same-day dental crowns and dental bridges are custom-made dental restorations that can be designed and fabricated in a single dental appointment. These restorations are used to repair damaged or missing teeth, restoring the function and aesthetics of your smile. With same-day crowns and bridges, you no longer have to wait weeks to receive your dental restoration. Our state-of-the-art CEREC technology allows us to create high-quality restorations in just one visit!

Benefits of Same-Day Crowns and Bridges

Choosing same-day crowns and bridges has several benefits, such as:

Time Efficient

With CEREC technology, we can create and place a dental crown or bridge in just one appointment, saving you time and unnecessary hassle.

Convenience

With same-day dental crowns, you won’t need to wear a temporary dental crown while waiting for the permanent restoration to be created in a lab.

Accurate Fit

CEREC technology uses specialised 3D imaging to create a highly accurate digital impression of your tooth or teeth, resulting in a precise fit for your dental crown or dental bridge.

Comfortable

Traditional tooth crowns and bridges can require multiple appointments and uncomfortable impressions. With CEREC, the process is quick, comfortable, and highly accurate.

Aesthetically Pleasing

CEREC same-day dental bridges are made of high-quality ceramic materials that are highly aesthetic and match the colour of your existing teeth, resulting in a natural-looking smile.

How Does CEREC
Technology Work?

CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. This advanced technology uses 3D imaging and CAD/CAM (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing) software to create custom dental restorations in just one visit, which allows dentists to offer better service at lower costs than ever before. The CEREC machine scans your tooth, designs the restoration digitally, and then fabricates it on-site using high-quality dental ceramic materials.

Is CEREC Technology
Right for You?

Our CEREC technology is suitable for many dental restorations, including dental crowns, tooth bridges, inlays, and onlays. However, it’s important you consult with our dental professionals to determine if same-day crowns and bridges are the best options for your dental needs. We will assess your dental health and recommend an appropriate course of treatment based on your unique needs.

The CEREC Process at The Clock Dental Practice

At the Clock Dental Practice, our same-day crowns and bridges process involves the following quick and easy steps:

Digital Scanning: The dentist at The Clock Dental uses CEREC Primescan to take a quick, accurate, and detailed digital scan of your teeth and surrounding structures. This scan helps in creating a precise 3D model of your mouth.

Crown Design: Using CEREC Software, the dentist utilises the digital scan to design the ideal crown for your tooth. They can view the adjacent teeth, shape, and size, ensuring a perfect fit and aesthetics. The software also provides automated proposals based on artificial intelligence, which can be further adjusted according to your specific needs.

Milling: Once the crown design is finalised, it is sent to the milling machine. The dentist selects a suitable block for the crown, and the milling machine accurately mills the crown from the chosen block. This process is similar to a 3D printout, ensuring precise shaping and details.

Polishing and Glazing: After the crown is milled, it is carefully polished to refine its surface. Then, a glaze is applied to enhance its appearance and provide a natural-looking finish. Special colouring may be added to match the shade of your adjacent teeth, ensuring seamless integration.

Furnace Treatment: The glazed crown is placed in a furnace for a short period, similar to pottery being fired in a kiln. This process ensures the durability and strength of the crown.

Bonding and Placement: Once the crown is ready, it is bonded to your tooth using dental cement. Excess cement is removed, and the crown’s fit and alignment are checked to ensure a comfortable and secure placement. The entire CEREC crown procedure is completed in a single visit, saving you time and providing immediate results.

At The Clock Dental, the CEREC process allows for efficient, accurate, and aesthetically pleasing crown restorations, ensuring you leave with a beautiful and functional smile in just one appointment.
