CEREC Arlington VA
Receiving a dental crown can typically take a few weeks, involving multiple visits and a temporary crown. This is inconvenient for many people who want their crown right away. Scheduling multiple appointments can be a hassle for those of us with busy lives.
Advances in technology have made it possible for patients to receive a permanent crown at the very same visit in which it is created. With just one appointment, you can get your crown created and placed in your mouth thanks to innovative CEREC technology.
CEREC, which stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, is a type of one-visit dentistry that allows you to get a crown for your teeth quickly and easily. CEREC crowns are made from solid blocks of ceramic or resin materials, so they are very sturdy compared to traditional crowns.
We offer this technology at Arlington Dental Excellence. Dr. Layth Ghanim and our team want you to be able to enjoy your permanent crown at the first visit, which is why we utilize CEREC technology in the creation of our dental restorations.
What is CEREC?
CEREC is a dental machine used to create permanent crowns, veneers, inlays, and onlays with CAD/CAM technology. With this technology, Arlington Dental Excellence can create your custom-made dental crown in as little as 90 minutes! In-house technology allows us to create and test your new crown during the first visit, ensuring you can wear your new tooth home and do not need to wait weeks for adjustments. Your dental care is more convenient than ever with CEREC.
Our scanning technology creates an exact digital image of your smile that is then converted into a 3D model to use as a standard for the new crown. We use high-quality material to ensure your new restoration looks and feels great, and will last for many years.
The first step is to create a 3D image of your teeth using Computer Aided Design and Computer Aided Manufacturing technology. This impression is done digitally using a small camera, so you don’t have to deal with messy impression trays. A milling unit then creates your ceramic crown right in the office as you wait. Your teeth will be painted to match the others. In just minutes, your newly-created crown will be bonded to the tooth. In addition, each crown is custom-made – it is perfectly shaded, shaped and sized to fit your mouth.
