Coastal Dental, proudly serving the Gosford and Central Coast communities, is delighted to introduce its comprehensive CEREC services.

Advantages of CEREC over Traditional Restorations

Temporary Crown

With digital impressions, CEREC eliminates the need for uncomfortable putty impressions, ensuring an accurate and snug fit for your restoration.
Aesthetic Enhancement

CEREC restorations are crafted from high-quality ceramic, ensuring not just strength but also a natural look that blends seamlessly with your existing teeth.

Precise digital technology ensures only the damaged or decayed part of your tooth is removed, preserving more of your natural tooth structure.

Unravelling CEREC: What Exactly Is It?

CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Aesthetic Ceramics) is a pioneering dental technology that allows for the creation of high-quality ceramic dental restorations in just one visit. The process uses computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) to offer precise, rapid, and highly aesthetic results.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do CEREC restorations typically last?

CEREC restorations are known for their durability and, with proper oral hygiene and care, can last many years. On average, a CEREC crown can last between 10 and 15 years, though some can last even longer. The lifespan can vary based on factors like oral hygiene habits, chewing practises, and regular dental check-ups.

Are CEREC restorations covered by dental insurance?

Coverage can vary depending on your specific dental insurance plan. Many insurance companies treat CEREC restorations similarly to traditional restorations in terms of coverage. It’s always a good idea to check with your insurance provider directly or let our administrative team assist you in understanding your benefits.

How do I know if CEREC is the right choice for my dental needs?

CEREC is an excellent solution for many restorative needs, but the best way to determine its suitability is through a consultation. At Coastal Dental, we’ll evaluate the condition of your teeth, understand your preferences, and recommend whether CEREC or another restoration method is best for you.

Is the CEREC procedure painful?

The CEREC procedure itself is minimally invasive and generally considered painless. However, depending on the specific treatment—like a crown placement after a root canal—some discomfort might be expected. At Coastal Dental, patient comfort is paramount, and we ensure local anaesthesia and other comfort measures are in place as required.

How reliable is the technology behind CEREC? Has it been tested for safety?

CEREC technology has been around for over 30 years and has undergone continual advancements in that time. It’s a trusted method in the dental community, backed by extensive research, studies, and successful patient outcomes. The materials used, like ceramic, are biocompatible and have been tested for safety and longevity.

At Coastal Dental, our goal is to provide our patients with up-to-date, efficient, and effective dental solutions. If you have any more questions about CEREC or any other service, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Your oral health and well-being are our top priorities.
