At Kent Smile Studio, we’re proud to use the latest technology and state of the art software to produce beautiful smiles and healthy, strong teeth. With Cerec, we’re able to offer clients same-day crowns, inlays and onlays and veneers, saving you time and enabling you to enjoy the perks of restorative treatment without delay.
Cerec technology takes care of the entire process of designing, manufacturing and fitting new restorations and allows us to do everything on-site, rather than sending impressions away to a dental lab. Cerec uses state of the art software to create accurate designs for the new restoration, which are then sent to the milling machine, where the restoration is fabricated.
The benefits of Cerec
The main benefit of Cerec is the speed of treatment. With traditional methods, treatment usually takes around 2 weeks, as moulds are sent away to the dental lab, the restoration is made by dental technicians and then returned to the surgery. With Cerec, everything is controlled by computer software and the technology enables the entire process to be carried out on-site in a single day.
The treatment process is also simpler, cleaner and more accurate than traditional methods. Usually, patients have to have putty moulds made to create new restorations, but with Cerec, photographs are used, making for a much more comfortable appointment for patients.
Cerec also means that patients can enjoy the benefits of the restoration straight away without having to wait for two weeks; the speed also means that there is no need for temporary restorations.
With only a single appointment required, treatment with Cerec is also more convenient, as patients don’t have to worry about scheduling a series of appointments.
