The future of dentistry with Cerec from London SE1 dentist

01 / 05 / 2010

One of the most recent innovations in dental technology has involved the use of computer-assisted-design/computer-assisted manufacture (CAD/CAM). The leading exponent of this technology is Cerec, a process that allows dentists to make dental crowns and veneers in a single visit using computer-guided machinery.

In the past crowns had to be made in a laboratory by gradually building up layers of porcelain into the desired shape. This was a lengthy process and not always completely accurate. Dentists were working from dental moulds and conventional x-rays and at times crowns had to be adjusted even after fitting. With the advent of digital x-rays, dentists were able to create incredibly accurate representations of the patient’s teeth on a computer almost instantly. Then by using a computerised mill, they could sculpt a dental crown from a single piece of porcelain in less than ten minutes. Because a computer guides the mill, the crowns dentists are now able to produce are incredibly accurate.

This one visit technology, also known as chair-side restoration, has slashed the amount of time needed to fit a crown and the number of appointments required. It has also significantly improved the quality of treatment available at London SE1 dentists. It has also meant that crowns no longer need to be made with metal for strength and fixing purposes. This means that all porcelain crowns are far more aesthetically pleasing than old-fashioned crowns.

Cerec technology represents the future of cosmetic dentistry and is the first step towards a greater computerisation. In the future all dentists will use Cerec technology or similar for a number of dental procedures but for now you are able to experience the incredible crowns and veneers that can restore the appearance of your smile in just a single afternoon.
