No surprises here — calcium is well known as a friend for teeth. Throughout the body, the mineral helps build bones and provide structural support. In your mouth, calcium helps harden your enamel and strengthen your jawbone.
What to eat: In addition to milk, good sources of calcium include cheese, yogurt, broccoli and salmon.
Here at Whitfords Dental Centre we have made it convenient for our patients to receive a crown. Our Cerec Machine can provide a one visit appointment to custom fit your crown, you have the opportunity to watch your crown being fabricated while you wait comfortably.
Crowns are a fantastic way to maintain the strength and integrity of heavily filled teeth. Not to mention improving the aesthetics of our smiles at the same time!
CEREC or Cerec (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, or CEramic REConstruction is a method of CAD/CAM dentistry developed by W. Mörmann and M. Brandestini at the University of Zurich in 1980 for creating dental restorations.
The CEREC Method
After the consultation, a camera captures the area to be treated.
The dental prosthesis is then created as a 3D model on the computer.
The restoration created on the computer is subsequently milled from a ceramic block.
The finished ceramic restoration is inserted just a little while later.
Advantages with CEREC
No unpleasant impression material
Say goodbye to biting on impression material for several minutes, having a numb mouth and jaw ache. Your dentist now has a camera that can capture your full dentition in seconds and then transfer this to the computer.
Have a Merry and Safe Christmas and New Year from all of us at Whitfords Dental Centre!
