We are proud to be one of the only dental practices in New Zealand to have a CEREC AC with Omnicam.
This enables us to follow a digital approach to create very strong, beautiful ceramic crowns and simple bridges in one appointment. Once your tooth has been prepared for the crown in the normal manner, it is digitally scanned, and the resulting file transferred to our on-site using our in-house computer driven milling unit to make the crown or simple bridge.
We also still follow the analogue approach, even though nowadays impressions are becoming a thing of the past. The method of digital or analogue approach depends on the shape of your tooth and gum around it and how deep it is under the gum.
