With the help of German technology we are now able to offer you state-of-the-art dentistry in Cape Town. This technology enables us to create Cerec restorations in one appointment.
The Molteno Road Dental Practice believes in “one appointment dentistry” with the help of latest CAD technology. We are one of the few dentists in Cape Town who use the latest European dental technology to replace large defective fillings, crowns and veneers. Cerec technology by Sirona Dental Systems, is innovative cad technology, which provides not only more aesthetical and durable results, its also more convenient.
Most dental restorative methods require more than one visit to the dentist. Usually On the first visit, you get anaesthetised, your tooth will be prepared, an impression taken and a temporary restoration put on your tooth. In a second appointment you get another injection, the temporary restoration will be taken off and you will have a permanent restoration put on. With Cerec crowns, the procedure is done in a single appointment!
A Cerec tooth restoration is not only convenient it is also healthy. Until recently dentists had few options but to repair decayed and damaged teeth with amalgams, gold, and other metals. This resulted in a lot of tooth structure loss. With Cerec restorations, strong, tooth coloured ceramic materials are used to restore your teeth to its natural strength, beauty, and function.
These materials (many different types of ceramics) closely match the composition of natural tooth structure. this means when you eat hot food and then drink something cold, the restoration and tooth expand and contract at almost equal rates avoiding cracks in the remaining tooth. The materials are chemically bonded to your tooth, enabling us to save as much healthy tooth tissue as possible while providing you with a dental restoration that strengthens your tooth.
We call this Biomimetic Restorations!
