Bargara practice trials new dental technology

Harris Dental Boutique owner Lincoln Harris has been the first in Australia to trial a new technology in dentistry.

A new technology in dentistry has been trialled for the first time in Australia at Harris Dental Boutique in Bargara.

The Bundaberg Region practice is pioneering the newly released Dentsply Sirona: CEREC® Primemill to fabricate restorations in a fraction of the time.

The owner and founder of Harris Dental Boutique, Dr Lincoln Harris, has incorporated the new technology exclusively in his Bargara practice after its release overseas last week.

He said using the technology benefited patients by removing the need for temporary crowns or veneers which could feel like plastic, break or come unstuck at awkward moments.

“Patients who get crowns or veneers often have to make several visits to the dentist for these types of procedures,” he said.

“By the time impressions are taken and sent to the lab for the crowns or veneers to be produced it can often be between four to six weeks until their teeth are fixed.

“This new Primemill technology gives us the ability to produce crowns or veneers on the same day, using more robust materials to mill crowns and veneers from, like zirconia which gives patients a more aesthetically pleasing smile.”

Dr Harris said his dental boutique used state-of-the-art advanced techniques and technologies so patients could benefit from the best possible outcome when it came to their oral health.

The first trials of the new technology were held on Friday, 31 January in the clinic.
