Technology that works for you.
We use state-of-the-art CEREC technology at Clarence House to make crowns, veneers, inlays and bridges in-house, eliminating the need for impressions and a second visit
.. so you can have a smile makeover in a much shorter time than was previously possible.
Our CEREC machine allows us to make ceramic restorations here at Clarence House, saving you time and inconvenience.
Before this technology became available, perfectly fitting ceramic restorations (such as crowns and veneers) had to be made off-site by a technician in a dental laboratory. This meant that patients needed to make several visits over a couple of weeks before their restoration was finally fitted.
We're proud to have been the first practice In Gloucester to offer this service for our patients. By using CEREC technology at our practice, we can offer smile makeovers in a much shorter time, We can make beautiful crowns, veneers, inlays and bridges using the machine.
In addition to our established digital x-ray machine and imaging equipment, we have invested in a state-of-the-art CEREC machine to allow ceramic restorations to be made here at Clarence House saving you time and inconvenience.
Until now, perfectly fitting ceramic restorations (such as crowns, inlays and veneers) have been made off-site by a laboratory technician. This meant patients needed to make several visits over a couple of weeks before the restoration was finally fitted.
The CEREC system works by our dentists using a special camera to take an optical impression of your tooth. This is then used to design perfectly fitting restorations.
First, a digital photo of your tooth is taken, using a special camera. This image is sent to your dentist's CEREC computer, where your tooth's restoration is designed using three-dimensional imagery. The digital mapping technology of CEREC means that a very accurate 3D model of your mouth is created, with no need for dental impressions.
Once the design of your restoration is complete, a blank ceramic block is placed into the CEREC milling machine. Through computer aided manufacturing, the machine then mills your restoration from the ceramic block. Once the restoration has been made, your dentist can bond it in place for you.
