Custom-made Porcelain Crowns
Advanced Dentistry Sydney is one of the few practices in Sydney using CEREC technology – the latest revolutionary system that reconstructs teeth to their original shape and size in just one visit.
With the ability to produce and fit porcelain crowns/onlays/inlays and veneers in a single appointment, there is no need for unpleasant impressions, temporary fittings, second injection or second visit. The reconstruction process is simply compressed into a 1-3 hour office visit, with striking aesthetic results that are long lasting.
The CEREC procedure was developed in Zurich, Switzerland and has been used for more than 30 years. Long-term clinical studies show that in terms of durability, CEREC restorations are at least equivalent to gold restorations, which have been the ‘gold standard’ when comparing restorations.
Our meticulous process ensures that we use gold standards in porcelain bonding. This process is summarised below and can be seen in our photographs of our CEREC porcelain restorations.
Isolation by latex free rubber dam
prevents contamination of the field
from moisture. This optimises
bond strengths. It also improves
comfort for our patients.
State of the Art technology is used
to scan, design and fabricate your crown. No impression material is needed.
We use safe techniques to remove
existing restorations (amalgam, gold or
resin). A special bacteria detector dye
is then used to detect residual bacteria
in the tooth till is it effectively clean.
We go over and above and use Glycerin
over our margins to do our final cure. This
ensures a fully cured margin.
Immediate Dentine Sealing (IDS)
seals the dentine with a hybrid
layer. This improves bond strength,
fewer gap formations and decreased
bacterial leakage and postop sensitivity.
Our process finishes with polishing
and detailing our porcelain surface to
optimise function and appearance.
We believe that the highest quality of dentistry comes from education, experience and dedication. When combined with passion, we have a recipe for success.
