There are so many technological advances these days that make it easier for consumers to get dental treatments to completely transform their teeth at affordable prices. Pearldent offers a whole host of treatments, including teeth whitening, veneers, dental implants, Cerec, and Invisalign. We explore some of these treatments in more detail.
Cerec technology is used to make inlays, crowns, and veneers in just one single visit to the dentist. There are many other benefits to Cerec, such as them being made from strong, durable porcelain material and it eliminates the need to take moulds, which can be a bit uncomfortable for patients. The materials used in ceramic fillings, with Cerec are metal-free and biocompatible, there is no need to have a temporary filling and the filling looks aesthetically pleasing as it is tooth-coloured.
What to Expect
- Your dentist will provide you with a local anaesthetic to numb the area (this can be done with The Wand – the ‘painless injection.’
- The tooth will be prepared, removing any decay, old fillings, or crowns.
- Photos will be taken using the Cerec camera.
- The restoration will be designed using the Cerec computer.
- Restoration will be made using the Cerec milling machine.
- Cement the restoration and polish.
The Cerec procedure was developed at Zurich University and has been used successfully in dental practices for over 25 years, since 1985. It is rising in popularity and is used worldwide by more than 25,000 dental practices in over 50 countries. Long-term clinical studies have shown that the durability of Cerec restoration is at least equivalent to gold restorations and depending on the case, Cerec fillings can even achieve better results than gold, with another advantage being they are tooth-coloured so blend in beautifully with the smile.
Invisalign is hitting the news for all the right reasons. If you want a discreet and comfortable tooth straightening treatment, then look no further. The Invisalign treatment uses a series of custom-made clear aligners which gradually move overcrowded, gappy, or crooked teeth into an improved position.
The aligners are almost invisible and can be removed for eating, drinking, and cleaning your teeth. As they are custom-made, they are comfortable to wear and are perfectly fitted to your teeth and gums. You may occasionally feel a little tightening when you change to your new aligners (every 2 weeks) but this is just Invisalign working its magic.
As it is a less noticeable way to straighten teeth than the more traditional braces, it is perfect for teenagers or adults who may feel self-conscious about having orthodontic treatment.
If you are eligible for the teeth straightening system, impressions and photos will be taken of your teeth. Using special 3D technology, you will receive a personalised plan, which will map out how your teeth will move, and it can even show the results to the patient before the treatment begins.
Treatment times will vary, depending on how much work needs to be done. However, most cases are completed within 6-12 months. As the aligners only work whilst you are wearing them, it is recommended to wear them at least 22 hours per day for the treatment to be most successful.
After your treatment plan is completed, you will need to wear a retainer. This is common practice with any orthodontic treatment and stops the teeth from moving back to their former position.
If you are interested in taking advantage of the Cerec technology or Invisalign or would like to receive high-quality dental treatment, please contact the friendly team on 0161 483 3408 and they will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
