What is CEREC and how it can benefit you?

Are your teeth badly damaged and need restoration right away? If so, a trip to the dental clinic and an appointment with a CEREC dentist could be the ultimate solution.

CEREC or Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics is a technology developed in 1980 by W. Mörmann and M. Brandestini. Visiting CEREC dentistry, a patient can get dental restorations in the least amount of time possible.

How is it done?

CEREC

Also called CERamic REConstruction, CEREC starts off with the dentist using an intraoral camera to take images of the preparation of the restoration. Based on these images, the CEREC software will create a virtual model showing the patient’s oral situation.

Afterwards, the software will construct the tooth restoration using the images, and then send it to a milling machine, which is located either within the clinic or to a third-party service provider. In a matter of 6 to 15 minutes, the milled tooth restoration is done, and will be sent to the dentist who will make the final preparations.

We Believe in Your Smile!

WE ARE OPEN!

Hello!

We are so excited to announce that the Royal College of Dental Surgeons has just given us the green light to begin seeing all non-essential and deferred treatment! Under the guidance of the RCDSO, all dentists in Ontario will now be able to re-open their practices for routine care and treatment. ​ Up until now, due to COVID19 pandemic restrictions, dentists have only been permitted to provide ​ emergency dental treatment. ​ This means that we have been unable to provide any other type of dental procedures since mid-March.

We can't wait to get back to work and begin seeing our patients again! We are spending this week implementing the changes mandated by the ministry of health and the dental association and will resume a normal schedule starting next week. You can rest assured that the safety of our community, our patients, and our team members are of utmost importance and we will have implemented additional safety measures and precautions. This is in addition to our already strict infection control protocols that were already in place.

Please be patient with us and give us some time to contact you; if you have had an appointment rescheduled, you are at the top of our list to call. We will be doing our best to ensure that everyone is re-booked as soon as possible. However, if you would like to get in sooner, or are having a concern, please feel free to give us a call.

What can I expect at my next dental appointment?

  • We will be ​pre-screening ​all patients prior to their appointments, and one more time upon arrival.
  • We are requesting that only the person who is booked for an appointment enter the office where ever possible (parents and caregivers will be permitted if necessary).
  • Upon arrival for your appointment, you will be asked to use hand sanitizer at the front entrance, and also to wear a mask until you are seated in the treatment room. (A mask will be provided if you do not have your own)
  • We will be staggering appointment times to limit the number of people in our offices to promote and encourage physical distancing.
  • There are hand hygiene stations located throughout the offices.
  • We have installed plexiglass barriers in the waiting room to protect our patients and team members.
