Need to Know
CEREC single-visit dental crowns and bridges may not be suitable for everyone. Some larger crowns and complex bridges may still need to be done in the conventional way requiring at least two visits. We can help you understand the options.
Unlike some practitioners who also offer CEREC technology, we actually have the CEREC machine in our clinic. This means a 40 minute wait for you, instead of their two-visits-in-a-day service.
Not all dental labs are the same! You need to know where you crowns and bridges are made. The location of the lab (local or overseas) does not automatically guarantee a quality outcome. We use Australian-registered dental labs who operate in authority-approved premises, staffed by qualified technicians and who use Therapeutic Goods Administration-standard materials.
