Single-Visit Ceramic Restorations With CEREC®

Portrush Family Dental is one of just a few dental clinics in Adelaide who offers CEREC technology. CEREC is a digital scanner that allows for single-visit ceramic restorations, meaning the procedure is completed on the same day, with just one anaesthetic.

Additionally, they allow us to take impression-less moulds of your teeth to be used for multiple treatments, including Invisalign braces, small dentures and implants. This means you no longer have to sit in a chair and uncomfortably wait for an impression to be made in your mouth!

All of our single-visit ceramics are made in-house and on the spot; you can even see the CEREC being designed by one of our dentists!

Ceramic restorations look as good as white resin fillings but have the durability of a porcelain crown. This makes them the most effective method of replacing any old amalgams, large fractures to teeth, or crowns for cracked or root canaled teeth.

CEREC® Porcelain Restorations Step By Step Process

1. All decayed tooth structures and old filling materials are removed conventionally or by dental laser

2. A 3D image of the tooth is taken with the aid of a CEREC® handheld camera

3. Using the 3D image, our specially trained and experienced CEREC® dentists design the restoration in front of you on the CEREC® monitor

4. The CEREC® milling machine “carves” the porcelain restoration out of a colour-matched ceramic block

5. The milled restoration is bonded directly to your tooth, creating a durable, aesthetic restoration in less than one hour

Cone Beam CT 3D Jaw Scans

Cone Beam CT technology is one of the most innovative recent introductions to the dental industry, with the ability to take 3D images of a patient’s jaw to assist in a range of dental applications.

Portrush Family Dental is one of few Adelaide clinics with access to this technology, allowing us to devise a treatment plan that targets the specific source of the problem as we see it. Cone Beam CT technology allows us to analyse your mouth in ways we never could before.

We can attain instant 3D views of your entire mouth to enable us to check for periodontal bone loss, abscesses, failing root canal treatments, sinus infections and implants. For precision implants, this means we can plan to the tenth of a millimetre where we want to place your implant and implant crown. Then, with our CEREC scanner, we can fabricate your crown in a single visit!
