Same Day Dental Restorations in Vienna
For many adults, a hectic schedule can keep them from finding time for the dental care they and their loved ones sorely need. After all, just a regular crown or other restoration usually requires two separate appointments – one to take impressions and provide a temporary piece, and one to place the final product. Here at Vienna Smiles, Dr. Hisham Barakat, Dr. Jennifer Bobbio, and their dedicated staff believe in providing oral health solutions that can offer both speed and quality instead of one or the other. That’s why we’re proud to offer the state-of-the-art power of CEREC. With this new technology, we can create top-tier crowns, inlays, onlays, and other restorations over the course of a single appointment, allowing you to leave that very same day with a vastly improved smile.
How does CEREC work?
The procedure for receiving a CEREC custom-made restoration is actually very simple. First, one of our doctors will remove all the decay from the tooth in question and carefully shape it in preparation. Then, once we’ve sprayed it with a fine powder, we can take a digital picture that will instantly appear on our computer screen in 3D. This will allow us to design your brand-new restoration right in front of you. Once we’re finished, the CEREC machine will take over, using our design to mill the restoration. This process only takes around 15 minutes, and you can even watch! Finally, when it’s finished, we’ll place the new restoration over the affected tooth or teeth, completing your procedure.
With the latest technology and a team of seasoned experts at our Vienna, VA, practice, patients can look forward to receiving care that’s always as comprehensive, skilled, and comfortable as possible.
