What Is Same Day Dental Crowns (CEREC)?
Same Day Dental Crowns (CEREC) refers to a dental technology known as Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics (CEREC). It is a cutting-edge system that allows dental professionals at Mindarie Quinns Dental Centre to create and place dental restorations, such as crowns, veneers, inlays, and onlays, in just one appointment.
CEREC Workflow Process
The CEREC workflow at Mindarie Quinns Dental Centre involves a seamless and efficient process. By eliminating the need for traditional dental impressions and laboratory work, this advanced system streamlines the treatment process while ensuring precise and durable results.
The CEREC process begins with the dentist using a 3D digital scanner to capture detailed images of the patient’s teeth and oral structures. This digital scanning technology replaces the conventional messy and uncomfortable dental impressions, providing a more pleasant experience for the patient. The scanner generates a highly accurate 3D model of the patient’s mouth, which serves as the foundation for the entire treatment process.
With the digital impressions in hand, the dentist uses specialised CAD (Computer-Aided Design) software to create a virtual model of the dental restoration. This involves precisely designing the shape, size, and contours of the restoration to ensure an ideal fit and natural appearance. The software allows for customisation and fine-tuning based on the patient’s unique dental needs.
Once the restoration design is finalised, it is sent to the CEREC milling unit, which utilises advanced CAM (Computer-Aided Manufacturing) technology. The milling machine crafts the dental restoration from a solid ceramic block that closely matches the colour and translucency of the patient’s natural teeth. The entire milling process usually takes just a few minutes.
Before finalising the restoration, the dentist performs a shade matching process to ensure the ceramic material closely matches the patient’s natural tooth colour. This step contributes to the restoration’s aesthetic appeal, seamlessly blending it with the surrounding teeth.
Once the restoration is milled, the dentist makes any necessary adjustments to achieve a perfect fit and bite alignment. This ensures optimal functionality and comfort for the patient. The ability to make real-time adjustments is a significant advantage of the CEREC workflow, as any modifications can be done immediately, eliminating the need for multiple appointments.
After the restoration is refined and polished, it is ready to be bonded to the prepared tooth. The dentist applies dental adhesive to ensure a strong bond between the restoration and the tooth structure. With precise placement, the restoration is securely attached to the tooth.
Once the restoration is bonded, the dentist performs final polishing and finishing touches to achieve a smooth and natural appearance. The restoration blends seamlessly with the surrounding teeth, creating a beautiful and functional result.

What our clients say
“Have been a client here for over 10 years and highly recommend this practice. Dr Lubinka has been my dentist for 12 years since I moved from the UK. Her professionalism, knowledge, attention to detail and her communication is outstanding. The administrative, support and dental nurse staff here are equally exceptional. Customer focused, positive, flexible and polite. Have never ever considered going anywhere else. Highly recommended.”
“Thank you to all the staff for being so caring and accommodating for my husband's first visit. Dr Lubinka has set him on a path toward dental health recovery. This practice has even inspired me to visit for a checkup and that’s somewhat miraculous!”
“Excellent customer service, with friendly and experienced staff! This is so helpful when you have a child who has always been anxious going to the dentist. Dr Master is so professional and composed that I don't even need to go in with my child when she has an appointment. He makes sure that you are completely satisfied with the service you receive and that's at no additional cost to you!”
“What can you say? Who loves going to the dentist? My experience has been awesome. No pain, no fuss, friendly and professional. Do I want to go again? No. I want to take better care of my teeth. Yet, if I have to go, I definitely will be back here.”
“I cannot praise Mindarie Quinn’s dental staff highly enough. My son had an accident at school resulting in a chipped tooth, the desk staff were amazing, shifting around appointments to fit him in for emergency treatment. Dr Aron was brilliant. He was calm & gentle with a traumatised boy. Within the hour we were back home with a fixed up-front tooth. This is my usual dentist, and my experiences are always great, but the care we received today in an emergency was so professional and reassuring, I felt the need to leave a review of our experience. Thank you for the incredible treatment we received with you today.”
“Staff are always super friendly. Really helpful when it comes to dental emergencies. My teeth are forever grateful.”
“Myself and my children have been seeing Lubinka for years. She is kind, patient, friendly and explains everything very well. My daughter had to have 4 teeth extracted and the procedure went very well because of her trust in Lubinka. The other staff are also lovely. We highly recommend this practice.”
