Same-day Dental RestorationsAn Overview
CEREC is a state-of-the-art system that uses CAD/CAM technology to design and fabricate ceramic restorations in a single visit to the dentist. Vernon Sheen, DMD was the first dentist in Annapolis to embrace this technology and has been working with it for many years.
Dr. Sheen’s experience with CEREC allows him to create restorations that look completely natural and rival those fabricated traditionally in a dental laboratory. Patients can replace a lost crown, repair a damaged tooth or enhance the appearance of their smile with same-day results in our Annapolis dentist office.
That Advantages of using CEREC and CAD/CAM Technology
CEREC along with CAD/CAM technology offers many advantages for both Dr. Sheen and his patients. This system does not require messy impressions but instead utilizes digital impressions. These means more comfort for you and better accuracy for the treatment planning phase of your crown, inlay or onlay. It also offers Dr. Sheen the ability to see multi-dimensional images of your mouth, gums and teeth. This will ensure that your dental restoration is more precise which offers the patient better, more comfortable results. High quality porcelain is used to fabricate aesthetically pleasing restorations that will blend in with your natural smile. All this is achieved in just a single day instead of waiting weeks for the restoration to be fabricated in a dental lab.
Same-day Dental Crown
Thanks to CEREC technology and CAD/CAM technology, Dr. Sheen can offer his patients a quality dental crown during a single visit with great precision and predictable results. With this advanced dental technology, the crown will fit perfectly over a decayed or damaged tooth, eliminating the need for a temporary crown. In just one visit, we can design, fabricate and then immediately place a porcelain dental crown. You will be able to eat and drink normally following your appointment with little to no pain or sensitivity. The benefits of same-day dental crowns using CEREC include:
- No messy impression trays with easy digital impressions
- High quality materials for a natural looking crown or restoration
- Saves time and money- no return visit required
- No uncomfortable temporaries
