CEREC - "Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics"

It’s not always possible to achieve a healthy, joyful smile naturally, even with frequent brushing and flossing. Restorative work on your teeth may be necessary to maintain their health and attractive appearance, whether for aesthetic or functional reasons. 
CEREC, is the name of a computer-aided creation and production method for dentists. With CEREC, which integrates a camera, computer, and milling unit into one device, dental restorations may be made in the dentist’s office in only one visit. In summary, the CEREC system is a crucial piece of modern dentistry that eliminates the drawn-out procedure of sending your tooth mold to an outside lab and making you wait while wearing a temporary crown. Compared to conventional techniques, CEREC is an easier and more effective alternative for restoring your teeth.

How does CEREC work?

You can repair damaged teeth using CEREC technology. CEREC can assist you whether you want a more beautiful smile or your teeth need to be restored because they are deteriorating. In only a couple of hours, CEREC can produce flawless, natural-looking restorations using cutting-edge computer-aided design technology and software. With the use of modern technology, getting a tooth restored at the dentist is a quick and painless process.

Here are the 7 steps that make up the CEREC process:

  • Your dentist will prepare your tooth for restoration.
  • Using CEREC software, the treatment area is digitally captured.
  • Using CEREC technology, the image is converted into a 3D virtual model.
  • The programme uses the dentist’s input to create the final restoration.
  • The CEREC mill carefully shapes a ceramic block to match the specifications and needs of your restoration.
  • The dentist inspects the restoration to ensure that it will fit comfortably in your mouth.
  • The CEREC restoration is polished and bonded to your tooth.

Beyond the fact that CEREC restorations are very time-saving and painless, this technology is a superior choice for your overall oral health!

After a nightmare experience with a pediatric dentist in Ottawa, I am so grateful to have found Dr. Saran and her wonderful team. I was told by her previous dentist that my 4 year old would need to go to Cheo and be put under to fill her 4 cavities. I’m so glad I sought out Dr. Saran for a second opinion. She filled 2 cavities in her office (without freezing) in under 10 minutes and the other 2 cavities have since hardened up after following Dr. Saran’s recommendations. My second daughter (now 3 years old) was born with missing enamel and has had numerous fillings with Dr. Saran, again without any freezing. My kids love going to the dentist! Dr. Saran is quick, extremely skilled, and trustworthy. I just can’t recommend her enough. The admin team, Rebecca and Kayla, are always so friendly and accommodating. They have squeezed me in a few times with very little notice for dental emergencies. The staff here truly cares! Although we are moving to Nova Scotia, we will continue to bring the kids back to see Dr. Saran. there is no other dentist I would trust more with my kids’ health. Thank you for everything!

Services at Gateway Dentistry are pleasant and professional – from ortho for my kids to general dental hygiene services, to fillings, they have always provided caring and thorough service. Dr. Saran has exceptional knowledge in her field and has a very practical and kind approach when communicating with patients. I am particularly impressed by the protocols implemented during COVID to ensure clean filtered air quality and sanitized equipment.

Great experience at Gateway Dentistry, the staff was very friendly and helpful. No wait time. Dr. Bezreh is a great and extremely professional doctor! Today the receptionist told me they had stopped direct billing to insurance companies for all patients, a little bit disappointed, but this does not change the overall experiences.
