Due to basic biology, accident, or trauma, our teeth can become misshapen, chipped, or broken beyond apparent repair. Using revolutionary CEREC technology, we can restore the healthy appearance and uniformity of your teeth with colour-matched crowns and veneers in just one visit. We were the first practice in Nottingham to invest in this ground-breaking one-visit technology, and we’re proud to offer its fantastic results.
The creation of CEREC crowns is a simple procedure, so simple in fact that we can prepare your tooth, create your ceramic restoration, and place it all within one visit to our dental practice. This would usually take two weeks or more, making CEREC technology efficient and far superior to traditional crown fittings.
We prepare your tooth and take a highly detailed digital image of the tooth we are treating. This is then converted in a 3D computerised image and forms a guide on how to design and create your CEREC restoration. Once we’re happy with its design, we then create your CEREC crowns and veneers in-practice in as little as 6 minutes. The ceramic we use to create your crowns and veneers come in a wide variety of shades and colours, allowing us to match your restoration to your current teeth. We can even characterise it with stains, markings, and shape it to match your surrounding teeth. It’s then placed in the same day!
Our dental staff will assess your oral hygiene and dental needs. You’ll have every opportunity to ask questions and we welcome this, to ensure you are completely comfortable during your appointment. We’ll talk you through the CEREC crowns and veneers fitting process and advise on the best hygiene measures to start at home. We’ll arm you with all of the knowledge you need to maintain healthy, happy teeth, gums, and dental restorations.
“I recently decided to have CEREC veneers across my upper front teeth. Chris explained the whole process to me in great detail with no pressure at anytime and gave me plenty of time to make my decision. The veneers were done in one visit by Chris who constantly put me at ease and made me feel relaxed at all times, with unbelievable results which has given me so much more confidence to smile.”

Beeston Dental Practice were the first in Nottingham to adopt CEREC technology, and it’s no secret why. CEREC technology streamlines the whole process of designing, creating, and placing restorative dentistry. It allows all of these key aspects to be undertaken in just one visit, rather than over the traditional and cumbersome course of a few weeks. This means we you don’t even need to plan your dentistry around a busy life, you only need one appointment to restore a broken, misshapen, or damaged tooth.
Broadly speaking, a crown fits over the entire tooth while a veneer is fixed just to the front of the tooth. Which option you receive depends on what is the most suitable for your area of restoration. We can discuss this at your initial consultation and assess your needs to find the best restorative dentistry solution for you.
In order to fit your restorative crown or veneer properly and securely, we need to prepare your tooth. If you have a full tooth that you are restoring, with a veneer for example, we will reshape and file down the surface of the tooth to make sure it is the right size to fit your replacement tooth to. Alternatively, if the tooth is damaged or broken, we may fill it or shape it with dental composite to make it large enough to support your ceramic restoration.
Not at all, the ceramic that your CEREC crowns and veneers are made of comes in a wide range of colours and shades. This means we can colour match your restorative dentistry to your natural teeth, helping them blend seamlessly into your smile.
When cared for properly and attentively, your CEREC crown or veneer could last you many happy years. It’s important to note that they aren’t indestructible, as they feel and function like your natural teeth. This means you should maintain brushing, flossing, and regular hygiene habits to ensure their longevity.
