CEREC Treatment

Modern CEREC technology allows us to restore a damaged tooth with a crown or only in just one visit. After taking an optical image of your damaged tooth, the computer then designs and creates a precise restoration that is extremely durable and made of naturally-coloured, biocompatible material.

Ceramic restoration is a form of reconstructive dentistry that has been around since the latter 1980s. Over time, the treatment process has evolved with the aid of increasingly sophisticated computer aided design. When you have a condition that can be treated using CEREC, this is what will happen.

First, we will conduct a full dental exam. This ensures that CEREC is the best course of treatment for you. Based on the results, we will prepare you for the procedure. This includes going over what we will do and the results you can expect.

Next, we will take an optical impression of the tooth. Instead of having you bite into a tray and hold it until the matter hardens, we will coat your tooth with a tasteless powder. Once the powder is settled on the surface of your tooth, we will use a digital camera to take a series of images. The powder allows us to take those digital image of the tooth after just a minute or two. Once the images are taken, the powder can be rinsed away with ease.

Last, we prepare the cap, veneer, or crown in North York for your tooth. This is done by using a ceramic block matching the hue of your teeth. The block is shaped using a milling machine and will perfect match the contours. That’s important since you want the restored tooth to blend in with the rest. The preparation and installation time will take no more than 20 minutes in most cases. There is no fitting a temporary and returning for a permanent crown or veneer.

Call us today and make an appointment. With the aid of CEREC, improving your smile could take less time than the typical lunch hour.

We Believe in Your Smile!

Hello Smile Centre Family,

We are working hard at keeping all of our patients and team members updated as we try to adapt to this daily-changing situation.


As you know, at this time, all elective procedures - including general dentistry and hygiene appointments - are still being suspended for at least the next few weeks. If you have an appointment in April, you can consider it cancelled. Our team is trying hard to reach out during this week as well. At this time, we are not rescheduling surgery appointments or regular dental and hygiene appointments until we have a better grip on when things will be returning to “normal”.

We look forward to seeing you back at the Smile Centre once we’re able to open our doors again. We will be adding extra time to accommodate the need that has been created by this unforeseen interruption; don’t worry! Your health is important to us and we will work overtime to ensure all our patients are accommodated.


Under the guidelines from the Ministry of Health and RCDSO, we must screen carefully and minimize patient contact, but we are accommodating emergency patients on a case-by-case basis. If you have a dental emergency, or think you may be experiencing symptoms that could become urgent, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We are monitoring messages regularly; the easiest way to reach any of our clinic locations is via text message. 

A dental emergency consists of severe pain, swelling, uncontrolled bleeding or infection. If you think you are experiencing an emergency, please send us a detailed message and we will get back to you as soon as we can. We have been working hard to find a way to help as many people as possible with minimal contact and still provide optimal care, so we are introducing virtual consultations with a dentist in order to be able to speak to you face-to-face.

We are currently seeing patients at our Maple location only!


We are all in this together. We will come away from this situation stronger and more appreciative than ever of the tiny conveniences that we all take for granted every day. Perhaps more family togetherness will become the new normal; maybe this will all be a lesson in taking a step back and appreciating the things we have around us.

We Believe in Your SMILE,

Your Smile Centre Team
