At Pembroke Dental Ballsbridge we’re delighted to have recently introduced a CEREC machine to the practice. We always strive to use the latest technology and modern techniques to offer our patients cutting-edge treatment. With the CEREC machine, Dr Keenan and Dr Collins can now offer treatments which used to take several weeks to complete in just one visit to the clinic in Dublin 4. This technology and software allows your dentist to design and produce a custom-made crown (including implant crowns), bridge, inlay or onlay, in our new in-house digital lab, and fit it right away.
Dr David Keenan, principal dentist at Pembroke Dental Ballsbridge, tells us more:
“We’ve always used the very best dental labs in Ireland, the UK and the US to provide top quality dental crowns and bridges. The downside of this approach for busy patients was that treatment had to be done in stages, and meant multiple visits. It also meant a temporary solution was needed in the meantime. Now we can prepare, make and fit crowns, bridges and even implant crowns in one visit. The ease and convenience of this for our patients is fantastic!”
The CEREC (Ceramic Reconstruction) system uses special CAD/CAM technology to scan the patient’s mouth and design a unique, colour-matched restoration. The machine uses the same high quality materials used by dental technicians in specialist labs to make the restoration, and this can then be fitted right away!
There’s no compromise on quality and no messy impressions for moulds, with every advantage of safety, a quick turnaround and a beautifully restored, natural-looking tooth!
In the coming months we’ll also be using the CEREC technology to enhance our orthodontic treatments, so check back for more updates on this!
At Pembroke Dental Ballsbridge we are delighted to be one of only a handful of dental surgeries in Dublin to be able to offer the benefits of CEREC technology to our patients.
