CEREC Cosmetic Procedures

Hornsby Dental | Hornsby Dentist: Cosmetic Dentist

CEREC uses the latest technology and materials to allow you to undergo treatment in just one session which in the past would have required multiple sessions. CEREC works to protect and preserve your own tooth’s structural integrity using a long lasting and highly durable material helping you maintain your new smile for longer.

Here are some procedures performed by Hornsby Dental using CEREC:

Fillings (inlays/onlays)

Decay and old filling material can be removed then individually manufactured fillings can then be fitted exactly to suit each
individual case. The entire procedure can be completed within one visit at Hornsby Dental.

Porcelain Veneers

Malpositioned and discoloured teeth can be restored with porcelain veneers. Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are custom
made to fit on the front of your natural teeth. They allow your dentist to change the shape, colour and length of your teeth. This procedure can be done with no drilling to your natural tooth. This is a great benefit that Hornsby Dental patients enjoy. It is also a much quicker way to solve cosmetic appearances without the use of orthodontics.

Porcelain Crowns

A porcelain crown restores damaged, fragile or reduced tooth surfaces by providing coverage over all areas of your tooth. Your natural tooth is then protected and can function normally. Using CEREC there are no impressions and no temporary crowns. A treatment may be completed within one visit at Hornsby Dental, which makes it more convenient for you to not have to wait whilst an outsourced dental lab creates the dental crown as with normal procedures without using CEREC.

Why do I need a scale and clean?

Going to the dentist for a scale and clean is important because it allows teeth and gums to be healthy and strong. The dentist goes around each individual tooth looking for plaque and hard build up called tartar which he removes from teeth. When gums bleed it is because there is bacteria on the teeth that has not been removed. With regular brushing and visiting the dentist frequently (every six months), teeth and gums can be kept in optimal condition.

Hornsby Dentist information about Crowns:

One of the interesting things that dentists face in today’s
society is that many of us are keeping a majority if not all of our teeth well
into old age. This can be contributed to the improvement of overall oral
hygiene through public awareness and national initiated schemes such as
fluoridation. However as we keep many of our teeth, unfortunately, there are
some instances when our teeth need a helping hand to withstand the rigors of
everyday life. In some circumstances compromised teeth may require treatment to
protect it from further breakdown and ensure continued pain free function while
at the same time be aesthetically pleasing.

Although as dentists we endeavour to be conservative in our
treatment, sometimes it is necessary to suggest to patients to possibility of a
crown to protect the remaining damaged tooth structure. It does so by totally
covering the remaining tooth and to prevent any future damage. Many people have
heard of crowns, however are unsure of when a crown is indicated.

Come in and talk to us about our one-visit eMax crowns, powered by CEREC, made right in front of you. If you feel that a crown is not for you and prefer a less expensive alternative, we can also make a ceramic onlay, instead of a full crown, to strengthen your tooth.

Hornsby Dental Crowns

Abour Crowns and Bridges

A crown is a dental restoration that involves entirely covering a tooth with an extremely protective material that is resistant to fractures, extreme temperatures and acidic foods.

Everyday activities such as chewing can put stress on our teeth, and over time this may manifest as visible signs of wear and tear. Although almost unnoticeable to the untrained eye, your dentist may notice faint fracture lines through your teeth, as well as generalised erosion of the surfaces. These are an artificial weak point in the tooth, and if you chew or bite together just a bit too hard, you can accidentally break off part of the tooth. To avoid this unnecessary trauma, your dentist may recommend a crown for the tooth. This will enhance its strength.

Restorative Dentistry

The Restorative Phase – In this phase, all teeth that need work done to them will be treated so no cavities remain, teeth are clean and healthy and stable. The reason why we restore teeth first is to start off with a mouth that is ready to be perfected.


Rehabilitation Phase – This second phase involves choosing and designing the procedures that best suit you. There are several types of enhancing dental treatments, the most common of which are orthodontics, surgical treatment, porcelain veneers, composite veneers and crowns.
