Same Day Crown / CEREC Mackay

Dental Crowns Mackay

Need a crown or other tooth restoration but don’t want to wait? No worries. We at Plaza Dental use the latest technology to better serve all of our patients. With CEREC technology, we can scan your teeth, create your restoration and then place and polish it all in one visit. You can go straight to dinner after your visit because the restoration is permanent and ready to work.

What is CEREC?

CEREC is a dental system that uses CAD and CAM technologies to complete a tooth restoration in just one visit. The system is used to make dental restorations such as crowns, veneers, inlays or onlays and is one of the most effective ways to repair or restore a broken tooth. With CEREC technology, there’s no need to wait to restore your smile or fix your broken teeth.

Dental amalgam fillings often need replacing as the tooth with the filling can become damaged due to cracking or breaking. A CEREC onlay (which is like a big filling, but made outside the mouth and then bonded in place) can be used to replace the filling and help strengthen and restore the tooth. If the damage is too much, then a crown may be used, with the same convenient and quick process. And if you need a front tooth repaired right away for a special occasion, we’ve got you covered, because CEREC veneers can get the job done.

No matter what type of dental restoration you need, our team at Plaza Dental can help. We will do a full examination and determine what is the best dental fix for your situation and then discuss all options with you. Our patients always leave happy and confident knowing they had the best care available.

The benefits of same-day crowns and other restorations are enjoyed by all of our patients. Smile with confidence right away because most teeth can be fixed in just one appointment, while those who need multiple restorations can also benefit from the same, quick service.

No need to come back numerous times for messy mouth moulds, preparation and polishing, because multiple restorations can also be created and placed on the same day. Here are more benefits of CEREC:

Convenience as we complete the work in one visit
Versatile, because CEREC can be used to fix a number of dental problems
Preserve more of your natural tooth
No need to sit and wait for a dental mould to set
No need for a temporary crown that restricts food choices
Quick and convenient; the total process only takes about two hours
Strong; our CEREC crowns are made of the strongest materials
A single block is used to create the restoration, adding to the strength of the restoration and the original tooth structure, allowing you to enjoy the next benefit…
Durability: they often last 15-20 years and longer when cared for properly
Crowns, veneers, onlays and inlays can all be taken care of quickly and efficiently with our CEREC technology. Our dentists are trained and experienced with the technology and will provide you with superior service and compassion.

We know that visiting the dentist is not at the top of everyone’s favourite to-do list, but we will do our best to make it as comfortable and quick as possible, so you can go on your way and enjoy your new smile.

CEREC 3-Part Process

The CEREC technology is what makes dental restorations convenient and strong, so your original tooth structure remains intact. It is also how we can make them look realistic so nobody except you knows the restoration isn’t natural tooth. So how does it work? Here is a breakdown of the 3-part CEREC process:
A digital scan is taken using the CEREC 3D software, which creates a 3D model on a computer screen, which is sent to the CAD/CAM program
The restoration or crown is created with CAD/CAM program
Your restoration is milled and fit to your tooth

What to Expect

We want you to be completely at ease when you come in for your CEREC same-day restoration which is why we put patients first and listen to your needs and expectations. No matter if you need help with anxiety, have restrictions around time, or any other concerns, we will do our best to ensure you are comfortable. For many patients, knowing what to expect can help too:

N
We will administer anaesthetic to ensure you feel no pain
N
Our dentist will then remove old restorations, where necessary
N
The broken tooth will be cleaned and checked for problems
N
A digital scan will be taken
N
You relax while the restoration is designed
N
The restoration will be bonded into place and polished
N
You will receive on the spot adjustments and cleaning
N
Your new smile will dazzle and leave you feeling confident
Patients enjoy the convenience of CEREC same-day technology because less time is required to be off work or for recovery. The entire process takes roughly 2 hours when you come in for your new tooth and once complete, you are ready to eat and go about your normal business.

After Care

 
Once you have your new restoration, you are ready to go. But, just like your natural teeth, they do have to be cared for. While the restoration will not decay, the restored tooth, the gums and the surrounding teeth are still all susceptible to infection, decay and other common dental problems.

Caring for your restoration is unique for each patient, and your dental professional will provide specific instructions for you. At the same time, your crowns or veneers have to be cleaned and maintained, regularly, and the better you take care of them the longer they will last. To help, here are some guidelines to care for your new teeth:

Z
Brush gently, at least twice each day
Z
Pay special attention to the gumline where your tooth meets the gum especially around the restoration
Z
If there is a margin between the restoration and your gum be sure to gently clean the area
Z
Floss according to your dental hygienist’s instructions
Z
If recommended rinse with a mouthwash
Z
Wear a mouthguard if you grind your teeth or play sports
Z
Avoid smoking, excessive coffee and tea as they may stain
Z
Have regular dental checkups so small problems can be identified and fixed before they become big problems

I recently visited Plaza Dental and was fortunate enough to see both Steve (Dentist) and Melany (Oral Health Therapist), the whole experience was great and stress-free, they have a very professional approach and this made me feel as ease. Also, it was lovely to be greeted by the happy, smiling ladies at Reception, that’s always a welcomed treat. Thanks to all!
