We value our patients’ time, so with CEREC, there is no need for multiple visits, temporary crowns, or a long wait for your permanent fixing. An added benefit is that we don’t need to take any messy impressions that make your jaw ache, this is all done digitally so the process is far more comfortable.
To get your single-visit custom crowns and more, it’s a simple process and takes just a few hours as it’s all completed right here in our dental practice in Herndon:
1. We capture an image of your tooth with a digital camera.
2. A 3D model of the restoration is created on the chairside computer screen.
3. The restoration is fabricated from a ceramic block on our in-office milling machine — you can even watch! It usually takes around an hour for the restoration to be created.
4. Your dentist will insert the custom-fit restoration during the same visit.
