How Our New CEREC Digital Scanner Can Improve Your Dental Visit

By using advanced dental technology at our dental practice in Herndon, our doctors at Herndon Dental Arts are able to provide superior dental care to our patients. The latest technological addition is the CEREC Primescan Intraoral Scanner. This trusted technology is an in-office system that processes more than 1,000,000 3D points per second, producing photorealistic and highly accurate data for our doctors to use to help examine your teeth as well as allow us to create treatment solutions right here in our dental office. In just one visit, we can maximize this technology to prepare crowns, inlays and onlays on-site.

What Are the Benefits of CEREC Technology for Our Patients?

  1. Saves You Time — Previously, a crown required two appointments, but with CEREC technology we offer same-day dental crowns with minimal waiting time.
  2. More Comfortable — There’s no longer a need to use the uncomfortable gooey putty required in the past to create dental restorations like crowns. With the intraoral camera, we receive a much more accurate view of your teeth in seconds without any of the discomfort associated with getting impressions of your teeth.
  3. Higher Accuracy — The CEREC Primescan technology is far more accurate in producing a dental restoration that fits your teeth perfectly as traditional impressions have a large margin for error. This means you’re more likely to be happy with your dental crown or filling!

Crowns and fillings are milled in our dental office in Herndon from ceramic rather than metal, and we create them to match the color of the tooth and surrounding teeth. They are so natural, people may not even notice your new tooth restoration.

If you have a damaged tooth, make an appointment with one of our dentists in Herndon so we can review your options and see if CEREC would be the right fit for you! Our team would be delighted to help outline the process in detail as well as guide you through your insurance benefits and financing options.
