Same Day "Cerec" Crowns




We now offer same day "Cerec" Crowns, Bridges, Veneers and fillings. Same Day Ceramic Bridges, Crowns and Veneers

We have now added the very latest CEREC machine which allows us to provide Crowns, Bridges and Veneers the same day. It's even better than that! Your crown is available about 30 minutes after we finish the preparation and this means No temporary and No waiting

Cerec is Modern Technology




The crowns are All Ceramic (No metal) and therefore they look better.

All the crowns are customised so you can have it the way you want it. This is really useful as we now have lots of patients who want to lengthen or shorten or perhaps straighten their teeth. Patients can actually watch their crowns being made

Cerec means no Waiting




It all done by Computer and lasers and is hands free!!. So how is it all done?

The first part is much the same. We remove the damaged tooth structure and any decay etc. Then rather than take an impression we use a camera which scans the teeth and creates a 3D image of the mouth.

The Computer then designs a crown which then appears on the screen. This can then be adjusted for shape and colour and features like anatomy etc. This normally takes about 3 minutes.

Cerec Means no metal




Once the dentist and patient are happy then the computer sends information to the milling machine which then makes the crown.

This takes about 12 minutes.

Patients can even watch it being made.

Then we simply check the fit and cement the crown. How Flexible is the machine? The machine is the very latest and it means we can use the very latest materials. For example Emax which we use for our Laboratory Fabricated Crowns is available for Cerec.

A Modern, Safe and Non Distructive Way To Detect Dental Disease

Introduction

We are now using the Sopra Dental Disease detection system call SopraLife

SOPRO: a new imaging fluorescence device aiding in the diagnosis and treatment of caries.

The auto fluorescence technology in SOPROLIFE allows our dentists to detect occlusal or interproximal decay, even in its earliest stages, which can often be missed by the eyes or by x-rays.

SOPROLIFE allows our dentists to differentiate healthy from infected tissue in order to excavate only the tissue which is diseased.

SOPROLIFE functions “live” in three modes and is free from ultraviolet or ionizing rays.

Diagnosis aid Mode:
SOPROLIFE allows the characterization of lesions at different clinical stages without loosing consistency. This is accomplished with image magnification of 30 to 100 times.

Treatment aid Mode:
SOPROLIFE images produced in the treatment mode show a differentiation of pre-operative healthy tissue versus diseased tissue.

“DAYLIGHT” Mode:
SOPROLIFE is the only concept in the world to offer two different visions.

The Daylight Mode allows the dentist to use SOPROLIFE as a white light intra-oral camera providing images of unmatched quality!

Adapting itself to the most complex clinical situations, SOPROLIFE allows our dentists to rapidly adjust their treatment choices.

Linked to SOPRO IMAGING software, our dentists now have the ability to have a customized follow-up adapted to the needs of their patients.


Safe, Easy and Painless

Its just a Simple Hand Held Camera!!

No Need for Xrays!!



The white image shows possible decay at the junction of the composite filling

The image of fluorescence confirms the presence of a renewal of the caries.

Gum Disease Detection

The camera allows us to show nut just the plaque but also to give an indication of how of the plaque is.

Gingival inflammation can range from hues of pink all of the way to deep magenta.

New plaque is highlighted by its white and grainy characteristics and old plaque is revealed as shades of yellow and orange.

The SOPROCARE camera when used in “PERIO” mode makes it all the more effective and indispensable by not just illuminating new plaque, old plaque but also the gingival inflammation.

Early identification of these conditions results in early intervention and minimally invasive treatment, while also educating patients on their clinical needs.

It means that we can show not simply what was missed on the last toothbrish cleaning, but what was left for a few days!!





Much more obvious that the naked eye and much less messy than disclosing tablets!!

Dental Decay Detection

Using the Sopra Camera is very useful as not only is the decay very obvious but we can also reduce the amount of Xray Radiation to the patients.

Here are 3 views of the same teeth



The one above is what you see with the naked eye and the decay is not visible



The one above is what you see with the Sopra Camera and the experienced eye can see the decay at the edge on the right (shadow)



The one above is what you see with the high quality low dosage xrays we use, and the decay is confirmed.

Modern technology is the way forward. It allows us to be far more accurate and therefore it reduces the costs of treatment and improved the patients dental health.
