At Orchard Park Dental & Implant Center in Kelowna, our dentist uses CEREC® to create and place dental crowns, inlays and onlays in the same day. No impressions, no temporaries - just tooth-coloured restorations in one appointment.
What is a Same-Day Restoration?
Typically, placing a dental crown, inlay or onlay requires more than one visit to the dentist, but by using CEREC technology, our dentists can perform the entire procedure in one convenient visit.
CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) is a system allow us to fabricate same-day ceramic dental restorations. Our Kelowna dentists use CEREC technology to place crowns, inlays and onlays in just one appointment.
These porcelain caps are placed on top of teeth to restore their function and appearance. Crowns are typically used to attach bridges, cover dental implants or prevent a cracked tooth from worsening. They can also help to restore a discoloured or stained tooth to its natural appearance.
Inlays & Onlays
Inlays and onlays are porcelain fillings coloured in the same shade as a tooth. They are used to repair cavities when the damage is too extensive for a standard dental filling. Inlays and onlays are ideal when too much tooth enamel has been lost to use a standard dental filling, and are typically used for molars.
