We use the state of the art technology CEREC to create same day Ceramic Crowns, Onlay & Inlays, here at Elwood Family Dentist
CEREC is a unique invention and procedure that allows our dentists to also be a dental technician in the surgery. The machines are connected to a computer system, one is a digital camera and the other is a milling machine.
Over the years, software and hardware enhancements have progressed and it is now possible to mill a porcelain crown in about 10 minutes. This crown is then stained, fired and glazed in a porcelain furnace for a further 30 minutes so that a crown can be fitted in the same appointment.
It is exciting to be involved in CADCAM dentistry from both a technological aspect and how it benefits our patients.
