Recent advances in the field of tooth restoration and reconstruction have made fixing chipped or broken teeth a more viable option by drastically improving the strength of the teeth through ceramic augmentation. SmilePerfectors is licensed to perform the Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics (CEREC) Dentistry in Tysons Corner and other locations. This technology allows our dentists to use 3-D modeling technology to sculpt a ceramic version of any tooth. Whether you need an onlay, inlay, crown or bridge, the CEREC dentistry is a convenient, one-sitting treatment option that is not overly invasive.
The CEREC 3-D Modeling system uses 3-D photography and computer imaging to create a custom-fitted restoration piece for your tooth. Patients will have images taken of the interior of mouth, which are then compiled and used to design a compatible, digitized model of the restorative feature based on their particular needs.
With consideration to the size and shape of the patient’s teeth, the CEREC treatment ensures a custom, precise fit. In a matter of minutes, a ceramic copy of the tooth is milled in the CEREC machine. Your SmilePerfectors dentist at Tysons Corner or at one of our other locations will then expertly apply the new feature to your tooth, all in one visit, eliminating the need for follow-up appointments!
Why Consider CEREC Dentistry?
Chipped or broken teeth can make anyone feel self-conscious. Such damaged teeth are also prone to caries, which when left untreated, can lead to further, sometimes severe complications, such as tooth loss. For that reason, it is important to fix chipped or broken teeth. While traditional methods for restoring chipped or broken teeth, such as dental crowns, bridges, inlays and onlays, require multiple dental appointments, CEREC dentistry needs just one!
In a convenient, single-sitting appointment, a skilled dentist using the CEREC system will create and apply a custom, perfect-fit crown or bridge. With CEREC dentistry, we at SmilePerfectors are also able to carry out inlay and onlay procedures in just a single sitting. Here are some other notable benefits of CEREC dentistry:
- CEREC dentistry uses high-quality material that is durable and aesthetically pleasing
- CEREC dentistry enables creation of comfortable and precise fit restoration pieces
- CEREC restoration takes only a few minutes, requiring no more than one visit
- CEREC dentistry is minimally invasive
