Same-Day Crowns and Porcelain Veneers
Same-Day Crowns using our Cerec Cad Cam scanning camera & 3D milling machine
You can now get your dental crown fitted in the same day in the same appointment thanks to modern dentistry technology!
The Cerec camera allows us to scan your mouth and create a 3D computer model of your teeth and any that have been prepared and register how they meet together. This means no need for messy impressions and no temporary restorations.
The one-step crown or onlay process is kinder to the tooth so there is less chance of sensitivity after treatment. With the Cerec system we can make ceramic crowns in ONE VISIT! As the design is created chair-side, we can involve the patient and allow them to choose the the shape and design and allow us to custom shade and feature match the crown. Cerec restorations are extremely strong and match the tooth.
3 steps is all it takes:
1. Our dentist will scan your teeth and take a digital impression.
2. Design and create the crown in our Cerec machine.
3. Fit the crown in your mouth.

Dental crowns are used as a way to restore the look and function of a tooth that has been damaged as a result of decay, old restorations, or physical breaking. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations so that your teeth will last as long as possible.
Although there are several types of crowns, porcelain (tooth coloured crown) are the most popular, because they resemble your natural teeth. They are highly durable and will last many years. Porcelain crowns are made to match the shape, size, and colour of your teeth giving you a natural, long-lasting beautiful smile.
Reasons for crowns:
- Broken or fractured teeth.
- Cosmetic enhancement
- Decayed teeth.
- To restore a dental implant where a tooth is missing
- Fractured fillings.
- To protect teeth with large fillings
- To strengthen a tooth which has a root canal treatment and needs protection from breakage.
Porcelain Veneers can provide almost anyone with a fantastic new smile. Teeth veneers are a wonderful solution for people who want to achieve a great smile without committing to years of orthodontic work and teeth whitening.
Veneers are a thin, durable shell of tooth-shaped porcelain. They are bonded onto the front of the teeth to create a beautiful and attractive smile. Teeth veneers can completely reshape your smile. They can often be alternatives to crowns and the ideal solution in treating many dental conditions as they preserve more of your tooth than traditional crowns.
Reasons for porcelain veneers:
- Cosmetically, to create a uniform, white, beautiful smile.
- Crooked teeth.
- Misshapen teeth.
- Severely discoloured or stained teeth.
- Teeth that are too small or too large.
- Unwanted or uneven spaces.
- Worn or chipped teeth.
- Abnormalities in the formation and colour of the tooth as it is developing
