Digital Dentistry

We understand the importance of being able to eat, speak, chew and smile confidently and with ease, so we offer our patients same-day services with top-quality technology to fulfil their treatment needs.

The Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics (CEREC) system was developed by Sirona, a leading dental technology company, to create top-quality dental restoration products with ease and efficiency. The system is complete with a computer and milling machine that, together, scan, design and mould ceramic restorations for crowns, bridges, veneers and implants.

How does it work?

Dr Borman uses an infrared camera to take digital images of the tooth or area requiring restoration. The images are sent to the computer screen, which creates a 3D restoration model and is cut from a ceramic block by the milling machine. The milling machine creates the restoration in under half an hour, allowing for same-day procedures and eliminating the need for follow-ups.

What are the benefits?

CEREC is most commonly used in chipped, decayed or missing teeth where conventional fillings have failed. The main advantages of using CEREC technology include:

  • Improved durability and strength
  • A natural and aesthetically pleasing appearance
  • Same-day appointments
  • Long-term protection of damaged and existing teeth
