What is a Same-Day Restoration?
Placing a dental crown, inlay or onlay typically requires a patient to make more than one visit to the dentist. However, our dentists can use CEREC technology to perform the entire procedure in one visit.
CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) is a system that allows same-day ceramic dental restorations to be fabricated. Our dentists in Fredericton use CEREC technology to place inlays and onlays, crowns and veneers in just one appointment.
These porcelain caps are placed atop teeth to help restore their appearance and function. Crowns can be used to repair a cracked tooth, attach bridges, help restore a discoloured tooth to its natural appearance or cover implants.
Custom-made veneers are thin pieces of durable, tooth-shaped porcelain that are bonded to the front of your natural tooth to alter your smile's symmetry, colour or shape.
Inlays & Onlays
Tooth-coloured porcelain fillings called inlays and onlays are used to repair cavities when the damage is too extensive for a standard dental filling. They are typically used for molars.
