Same-Day Crowns, Inlays & Onlays
At Southwood Dental Studio in London, our dentists use CEREC® to create and place dental crowns, inlays and onlays in the same day. No impressions, no temporaries - just tooth-coloured restorations in one appointment.
What is a Same-Day Restoration?
Usually, you'll need to schedule more than one visit to the dentist so a dental crown, inlay or onlay can be placed. However, with CEREC technology, our dentists can complete the entire procedure in one easy appointment.
CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) allows for fabrication of same-day ceramic dental restorations Our London use the system to place crowns, inlays and onlays in just one visit.
Placed on top of teeth to restore their function and appearance, crowns are porcelain caps that can be used to cover dental implants, attach bridges, or prevent a cracked tooth from further deteriorating. They may also help restore a stained or discoloured tooth to its natural appearance.
Inlays & Onlays
When damage is too extensive for a standard filling, these tooth-coloured porcelain fillings are used to repair cavities. Inlays and onlays are typically used for molars. They are ideal when too much tooth enamel has been lost to use a standard filling.
Why use CEREC?
With CEREC, you'll experience less drilling, fewer injections, and less time out of your busy schedule for dentist appointments.
