CEREC Dental Crowns

Crowns in a Single Visit

The dental profession is evolving, and so should your experience. New technology helps diagnose problems earlier, allowing dentists to treat problems sooner and with less-invasive techniques. Our dental practice in Purcellville VA offers the latest in comfortable, convenient dentistry with our CEREC tooth restoration system. Using the CEREC equipment, we can now complete a color-matched ceramic tooth restoration – filling, crown, or veneer – in a single visit. This technology uses biocompatible, tooth-colored material, so your dentition won’t be discolored by silver-colored fillings.

What is CEREC?
CEREC is a high-tech device used to design and manufacture ceramic tooth restorations at our office while you wait. The CEREC equipment comprises a digital infrared camera for obtaining an optical impression of the damaged tooth, 3D Computer Aided Design (CAD) software to help the doctors design the ideal restoration for the clinical situation, and Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) technology that uses two high-speed diamond burs to mill a precise restoration according to the CAD software specifications. The milling process is complete in less than 20 minutes, and the entire restorative procedure is completed in a single appointment.
