At Cloverdale Dental Group in Etobicoke, our dentist uses CEREC® to place dental crowns, veneers, inlays and onlays in the same day. No impressions, no temporaries - just tooth-coloured restorations in one appointment.
What is a Same-Day Restoration?
Usually, you'd have to make more than one appointment with your dentist to have a dental crown, inlay or onlay placed. But with CEREC technology, our dentists can complete this entire procedure in one convenient visit.
CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) is a system that allows for fabrication of same-day ceramic dental restorations. Our Etobicoke dentists use CEREC technology to place inlays, onlays, crowns and veneers in just one appointment.
Placed on top of teeth to restore their function and appearance, crowns are porcelain caps we can use to cover implants, attach bridges, repair a cracked tooth or restore a discoloured tooth to its natural appearance.
These very thin pieces of durable, tooth-shaped porcelain are custom-made, then bonded to the front of your natural tooth to improve the colour, shape or symmetry of your smile.
Inlays & Onlays
When tooth damage is too extensive for a standard dental filling, we repair cavities with inlays and onlays - tooth-coloured porcelain fillings typically used for molars.
