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!

Dear Smile Centre Family,

The recent Ontario government announcement declaring a state of emergency and issuing of a new stay-at-home order has caused some uncertainty. We wanted to let you know that all of our Smile Centre locations are still OPEN.

As dental professionals we have been classified as an essential part of healthcare and will continue to provide both preventive, restorative, and emergency treatment. We will not be providing some elective services such as teeth whitening at this time.

We are grateful to remain open as we know how important it is to stay on top of dental issues before they become major problems. Good oral health is directly related to good overall health. Please know that we are doing everything we can to ensure that we go above and beyond all of the recommended safety protocols to keep you, your loved ones, and our team healthy and safe. That is, and always will be our highest priority. Our strict protocols include: Advanced pre screening, using Hepa air filters, wearing advanced PPE, and limiting the number of people in the office by making virtual consultations available. Our offices have always prided ourselves on being experts when it comes to asepsis and sterilizations protocols and it should be noted that there has been no evidence of COVID spread related to dental offices at this time.

Should you have any questions, or wish to postpone or delay any upcoming appointments, please feel free to reach out. We completely understand that not everyone is comfortable receiving dental treatment at this time and we will do our best to accommodate all of your needs while making sure that you feel safe.

Continuing to follow our enhanced safety guidelines, that we have had in place since June, will help to ensure a safe and comfortable environment for everyone.  Underneath these layers of extra protection, rest assured that we are still the same, caring, attentive providers we have always been!

Thank You for your trust during these uncertain times,

Your Smile Centre
