CAD / CAM
We know how important your oral health is for you and we also know that as busy people, time is equally important. Here at Minster Dental Care, we aim to provide patients with efficient dental crowns in the shortest time possible. We are able to provide you with one day crowns, onlays and restorations using the latest in dental technology: CEREC
CEREC is a dental device that allows crowns to be milled and restored into the patient’s mouth in one day. It uses CAD/CAM, or "Computer-Aided Design" and "Computer-Aided Manufacturing" technology, in order to create the patient’s dental crown in one appointment.
Using a special camera, digital imaging is taken of your prepared tooth. No “gagging” impressions are needed. The highly trained staff at Minster Dental Care then designs your new restoration, which is then milled from a solid block of porcelain. Your restoration is then bonded in place to complete the procedure.
A few of the advantages of CEREC are:
- No need for gagging impression material
- No need for a second trip, the procedure is completed in one appointment
- The dentist has total control over your restoration
- Digital imaging is highly accurate
- Minimal preparation of your tooth
- Metal free dentistry
