What does the process involve?Get in touch
Initially, your dentist will prepare the affected tooth for treatment before taking multiple scans and precise digital images of your mouth.
Using specialised computer software, your dentist will use the scans and images to design your new restoration with complete accuracy and precision.
Once happy with the final design, your dentist will send the specifications to an on-site milling machine. Your new tooth is then fabricated from a high-quality ceramic block. The whole milling process takes less than 30 minutes in total to create your restoration. The ceramic will be matched to your natural teeth to ensure the restoration fits seamlessly into your smile.
Your dentist will check they are happy with the fit before fixing the restoration into place onto your prepared tooth using a strong dental cement.
