If we told you that it was possible to restore your damaged tooth in less than half the time of a normal crown, you’d be pretty excited — and we are, too. That’s because with CEREC in Vienna, VA, same day dental crowns are possible. That’s right: you can visit Drs. Barakat or Bobbio at a time that’s convenient for you… and walk out of the very same appointment with a beautifully restored tooth! Keep reading to learn more about the wonders of CEREC today.
One day crowns are possible with CEREC technology
At Vienna Smiles, we’re committed to bringing you the very best dentistry by combining our years of experience with the latest in technology. That’s why we’ve invested in CEREC, or Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. It’s a powerful tool that allows us to create and place your dental crowns in the very same visit.
Advantages of CEREC crowns
You won’t be surprised to know that the advantages of same-day crowns are many. Traditional crowns take up to two weeks, and two appointments — one for the initial examination, and the second for the crown’s placement. CEREC eliminates that second appointment and two-week waiting period completely.
Some of the added benefits include:
- No need for messy, gag-inducing dental impressions. CEREC uses digital impressions, which are much faster and more comfortable than the traditional method of modeling the mouth. A quick scan is all it takes for a super-accurate image of the treatment area.
- Digital impressions provide a more accurate picture, too — so in addition to creating a comfortable experience in the dental chair, your permanent crown fits better, too.
- Dental crowns placed in just one visit mean you’re spending less time planning to visit the dentist’s office, and more time enjoying your fully restored teeth.

Trust the team that values quality and comfort
At Vienna Smiles, we believe the biggest advantage of CEREC is that using this technology allows us to consider the three most important factors — quality, comfort and convenience, all at the same time. We know these are the things that matter most to our Vienna patients (and to us, too). If you’re in need of a dental crown, or interested in visiting the dentist that puts your comfort and convenience first, please contact Vienna Smiles to book your appointment.
