How to get your Ultimate Smile
Save Time!You save time without having to wait weeks. CEREC technology makes it possible to produce and integrate ceramic restorations in a single appointment.
More CompatibleIt’s more compatible with your mouth. Ceramic is more bio-compatible than amalgam or gold, and is more tooth-like in appearance and feel.
More ComfortableIt’s more comfortable. The whole process is much more comfortable and less intrusive for you than traditional impressions.
Long LastingIt’s long lasting. CEREC is strong and last just as long, if not longer, than traditional tooth coloured fillings and other laboratory-made restorations.

Exactly what happens when you have CEREC treatments?
1. Our dentist uses small scanner to take images
First, you will be settled in the comfortable dental chair. A small, precision wand-like intraoral scanner will take images and intricate measurements of your tooth and bite.
2. Virtual Model on CEREC
Now, using these images, the CEREC computer utilizes advanced CAD technology to generate a virtual 3D model of your bite, gums and teeth that you can see on the screen.
3. Milling of your tooth
The model is passed to a milling machine where it is milled out of a colour-matched ceramic block in just 9 to 15 minutes. Your crowns and/or inlays are made with great accuracy and you’re even welcome to watch it being made.
4. Fitting of your tooth
Lastly, we add the finishing touches to the restoration by further colouring, polishing, and glazing. Once crafted, we fit your new tooth restoration immediately, often about 30-45 minutes later.
No more mess! No more gagging!
No more messy impression material! No more gagging! No more temporary crowns. No more 2nd visit after three weeks. No more 2nd anaesthetic! All of this care done at the one appointment*! What’s more, CEREC does NOT cost any more than traditional procedures! Not every dentist has CEREC technology and it is still quite rare in Melbourne.
