Cerec Dentistry in Barrow in Furness

What is CEREC?

CEREC is a revolutionary machine that allows us to create dental restorations on-site so avoiding the use of a dental laboratory and several weeks waiting time. In the hands of our skilled technicians, CEREC can create crowns, veneers, on-lays and in-lays right here at the practice and ready for fitting on the same day!

How does it work?

CEREC combines a complex 3D scanner, design software and detailed milling machine all within a single unit. To start, our dentist uses the system to take a very detailed 3D scan of your teeth – this is then transferred to the design and planning software where the restoration is emulated and matched to the natural teeth. Finally the system automatically and precisely mills a ceramic block to form the new restoration whilst you watch everything that is happening on the high-resolution computer screen.

We are justifiably proud of our CEREC technology and the benefits that it brings for our patients.

We invite you to contact us to see how we can use CEREC to benefit you.
