Same-Day Crowns, Inlays & Onlays
At Collingwood Dental Centre in Collingwood, our dentist uses CEREC® to create and place dental crowns, inlays and onlays in the same day. No impressions, no temporaries - just tooth-coloured restorations in one appointment.
What is a Same-Day Restoration?
Typically, placing a dental crown, inlay or onlay requires multiple visits to the dentist, but with CEREC® (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) technology, our dentists can complete the entire procedure in one convenient visit.
The system allows for the fabrication of same-day dental restorations. At Collingwood Dental Centre, you can have your crown, inlay or onlay placed in just one appointment.
These porcelain caps are placed atop teeth to restore their appearance and function. Crowns can be used to cover dental implants, attach bridges or prevent a cracked tooth from further deteriorating. They can also help to restore a stained or discoloured tooth to its natural appearance.
Inlays & Onlays
When damage is too extensive for a standard dental filling, inlays and onlays are used to repair cavities for teeth that have lost too much enamel. These tooth-coloured porcelain fillings are usually used for molars.
