It seems like life gets busier with each passing year. For many families, fitting in everyone’s necessary appointments poses a real challenge. At Centennial Smiles, we prioritise convenience, so that it is easy for families to maintain a healthy, comfortable smile.
Dr Andrew Dunn also believes in dentistry that is durable, comfortable and long lasting so that you get the most out of your investment. It is in this spirit that we proudly offer CEREC crowns.
Anytime the structure of a tooth is in jeopardy, whether from deep decay or trauma or even because of old, large fillings, a crown can add years onto the life of the tooth.
A crown, sometimes called a cap, covers the remaining tooth structure and protects it from chewing forces. A properly designed crown can also reduce sensitivity or even make an ageing tooth look new again.
If you are worried about pain during a procedure, you will be happy to know that today’s anaesthetic and delivery techniques make pain-free dentistry possible. We will always ensure you are comfortable throughout your appointment. Dr Dunn's gentle nature puts even the most nervous patients at ease.
CEREC, short for ceramic reconstruction, makes it possible to have your final crown in just one visit because it eliminates the need for an outside dental lab. Instead, we create your crown right here in our clinic during your appointment, saving time – something our patients truly appreciate.
Rather than taking impressions of your tooth, we use digital scanning software to capture the size and shape of your tooth. This information is used by our CEREC machine to design your crown.
Modern dentistry makes it possible to enjoy both function and beauty when it comes to dental crowns.
Our CEREC milling machine, which uses advanced robotics, will create your final crown from a single piece of strong ceramic. Dr Dunn will use his artistic touch to match the shade and colouring of the surrounding teeth so that it blends in perfectly.
No one will notice your dentistry – just your smile.
Since Dr Dunn orchestrates the entire process, his attention to detail ensures a perfect fit and outcome that can last for many years to come with the proper ongoing home and professional care.
Our patients often choose CEREC crowns because of their many benefits:
If you suspect your tooth is damaged or that you may benefit from a dental crown, contact our Randwick dental clinic to arrange an evaluation. Dr Dunn will provide you with all of your options so that you can make an informed choice.
Our friendly and fun dental team strives to make dentistry an enjoyable experience by providing highly personalised service that will leave you smiling.
