CEREC (Chair-side Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) involves the production of porcelain ceramic inlays to improve the appearance of your teeth. This process can be used to generate custom-made materials of all shapes and sizes to restore your smile.
At Semaphore Dental, we are constantly looking for innovative new technologies that allow us to provide the fastest, most efficient care to our patients. This relentless drive for more effective care has enabled us to deliver a treatment that would usually take several weeks in a single appointment.
3D Imaging Technology
CEREC is an innovative technology that creates the material for inlays, onlays, veneers, crowns, and dental implants. Utilising 3D imagery and CAD/CAM technology, infrared scans of damaged teeth are taken in order to generate a tailor-made ceramic restorative solution.
Single Appointment Restorations
The greatest achievement of this treatment is the speed with which we can prepare your custom models. Using a milling unit, restorations are made out of a ceramic block and produced to the exact size you need. The material is chemically bonded to your tooth, allowing us to maintain as much of the healthy tooth structure as possible.
Tooth Coloured Materials
Our ceramic materials are made to blend with the natural colour of your smile. Unlike amalgam fillings, which can darken over time, ceramic fillings will not compromise the tooth’s natural structure.
