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!

WE ARE OPEN!

Hello!

We are so excited to announce that the Royal College of Dental Surgeons has just given us the green light to begin seeing all non-essential and deferred treatment! Under the guidance of the RCDSO, all dentists in Ontario will now be able to re-open their practices for routine care and treatment. ​ Up until now, due to COVID19 pandemic restrictions, dentists have only been permitted to provide ​ emergency dental treatment. ​ This means that we have been unable to provide any other type of dental procedures since mid-March.

We can't wait to get back to work and begin seeing our patients again! We are spending this week implementing the changes mandated by the ministry of health and the dental association and will resume a normal schedule starting next week. You can rest assured that the safety of our community, our patients, and our team members are of utmost importance and we will have implemented additional safety measures and precautions. This is in addition to our already strict infection control protocols that were already in place.

Please be patient with us and give us some time to contact you; if you have had an appointment rescheduled, you are at the top of our list to call. We will be doing our best to ensure that everyone is re-booked as soon as possible. However, if you would like to get in sooner, or are having a concern, please feel free to give us a call.

What can I expect at my next dental appointment?

  • We will be ​pre-screening ​all patients prior to their appointments, and one more time upon arrival.
  • We are requesting that only the person who is booked for an appointment enter the office where ever possible (parents and caregivers will be permitted if necessary).
  • Upon arrival for your appointment, you will be asked to use hand sanitizer at the front entrance, and also to wear a mask until you are seated in the treatment room. (A mask will be provided if you do not have your own)
  • We will be staggering appointment times to limit the number of people in our offices to promote and encourage physical distancing.
  • There are hand hygiene stations located throughout the offices.
  • We have installed plexiglass barriers in the waiting room to protect our patients and team members.
