CEREC and crowns

What is CEREC?

CEREC technology is state-of-the-art technology that allows patients to get porcelain crowns in a day. CEREC has revolutionised the process of producing, designing and fitting crowns. Here at Fresh, we can create crowns in house in a single appointment.

CEREC allows us to use the very best computer imaging techniques to generate comprehensive chair-side dental impressions of your teeth and without the need to make physical moulds of your teeth – a process that can be very uncomfortable and time consuming. These digital impressions offer the highest level of accuracy. The ceramic materials used are more biocompatible and offer a more aesthetic alternative to other materials such as amalgam and gold.

CEREC have a 10 year lifespan – longer than gold inlays and individually-manufactured ceramic inlays. Research has shown that the CEREC success rate is 95.5% following a period of 9 years, and 84% after 18 years.

This imaging technology can be linked to the in-house CEREC milling unit which then creates your bespoke crown in as little as 6 minutes. With CEREC, there is no need for temporary restorations in between appointments (as everything can be performed over a single visit) and only local anaesthetic is used.


Do you have broken, chipped, decaying, or damaged teeth? A restoration such as a crown could be the answer for you.

The benefits of crowns:

  • Improve the aesthetics of your tooth – Crowns can improve the colour and shape of your tooth according to your desires. You dentist at Fresh will talk through this with you.

  • Protect your tooth – Crowns are durable (crowns at Fresh are made from porcelain), offering the best possible protection for your tooth.

  • Durable – Research has shown that crowns are the most durable solution over other dental restorations.

Other restorations such as veneers and fillings can also be created in a single appointment via CEREC.
