It’s likely that you have never heard of CEREC dentistry, that’s because while this technology is widely used in countries like the UK and the USA, few dentists in Australia practice it due to the high cost of the equipment it requires.
CEREC is an acronym made from the first 2 letters in the words CEramic REConstruction, which is exactly what CEREC dentistry is. It is also sometimes referenced as an acronym for Chairside Economical Restoration of Aesthetic Ceramics. CEREC dentistry uses the latest in dental technology to perform precision restorations in a single visit. Saving the patient both time and money.
CEREC dentistry is best suited for procedures such as inlays, onlays, dental veneers, ¾ crowns, dental crowns, dental bridges for broken teeth, chipped teeth, and decayed teeth. We, best dentist in Hope Island can often restore even severely broken-down teeth that other dentists would normally extract!
For more than 100 years dentists in Australia have been filling teeth using amalgam (silver colour), which contains the potentially harmful substance mercury. We never use amalgam for fillings. Some dentists use composite resin as an alternative, however, these still contain considerable amounts of plastic and chemicals.
At StarKlinics, best hope island dental clinic, we use ceramic, a bio-inert material similar to porcelain, because it’s a safe, strong, and durable material that mimics the natural physical properties of a real tooth.
