If you are thinking that your teeth could do with an upgrade but don’t have the time to spend hours in the dentist’s chair during several appointments, then you need to come to Bromley Dental Practice to see the cosmetic dentist in Bromley.
Here at our practice, we have a Cerec machine that can save you time, money and hassle. The Cerec machine makes veneers, inlays, onlays, and crowns while you are sitting in the dental chair.
Normally, your cosmetic dentist in Bromley will need you to come for at least two appointments if you need inlays, crowns or veneers. During the first appointment, your teeth are prepared and impressions are taken. These are sent off to a laboratory where your porcelain restorations are made by dental technicians. This can take as much as two weeks. In the meantime, you have to wear temporary restorations. They don’t look as natural as your permanent ones will, so there’s added self-consciousness for a couple of weeks, and sometimes they fall out, and you have to go back to the cosmetic dentist in Bromley to get them put back on, all the while waiting for your permanent restorations to come back from the lab.
With Cerec, we can prepare your teeth, make the restorations and fit them all in one appointment. That’s one less appointment you have to fit into your busy schedule, one less journey, one less shot of local anaesthetic your body has to flush out afterwards, and no walking around in less than lifelike temporary restorations. Cerec helps make your life so much simpler.
Why do you need restorations?
Crowns cover the whole tooth and are a way of giving teeth that are starting to crumble, but still have a healthy root, a new lease of life. They fit over the whole tooth and strengthen it.
Inlays are used when decay has left a particularly large area to fill. The porcelain seals the cavity and strengthens the crown.
Veneers are fixed over the front of the teeth to hide imperfections such as chips, cracks and stains that whitening can’t remove.
