In the past, if you needed a dental restoration such as a crown or veneer, you would have needed to make two visits to the dentist. The first visit would have involved preparing your tooth and taking an impression. That impression would be sent to a dental lab to create your new restoration. That could have taken two weeks or more to craft while you wore a temporary restoration before coming back to have the permanent one placed. At Oakton Family Dentistry, our dentists, Dr. Elhady, Dr. Scimeca and associates, can fix your smile in one easy visit with CEREC same-day restorations in Fairfax, Virginia.
The CEREC system allows our dentists and team to create your crown in our office on the same day as your visit. This saves you time by allowing you to have all of your dental work done in one visit, and you will not have to worry about taking extra care of a temporary restoration until your permanent one is ready. CEREC technology can be used to create:
- Dental veneers
- Dental inlays and onlays
- Dental crowns
These restorations are milled from single blocks of high-grade porcelain and combined with our digital scanning process. With cutting-edge computer technology, your restoration will fit you comfortably. CEREC technology can provide you with a long-lasting, natural-looking restoration. Porcelain has become the material of choice for restorations. In the past crowns were made of metals such as gold or an amalgam. Porcelain on the other hand not only looks natural, but it very compatible with your body, is bonded directly to your tooth, and can stand up to hot or cold foods and beverages.
