Dentistry Innovation Has Come a Long Way!
Many people fear their semi-yearly trips to the dentist. The prospect of a cavity and the dreaded reality of a filling weigh heavily on many minds. Add in the possible need for a crown or veneer to repair damaged teeth, the dental visit quickly goes to the bottom of the “to do” list.
Thankfully, innovation in dentistry has made tooth restoration easier, more convenient, more accurate and overall less worrisome for patients. Our office uses CEREC® equipment, which provides for on-site creation of natural-looking ceramic fillings – in a single visit. We use a digital camera to take an optical impression of the damaged tooth, design the appropriate restoration using CAD software and mill tooth-colored ceramic on-site in about 10 minutes. There’s no need for a temporary and return visit. From tooth preparation to placement and bonding, a patient can have his or her smile restored in less than an hour.
CEREC is a shining example of recent advances in the dental profession and we at Rye Smiles for Life are proud to be among the first in the metropolitan Washington, DC area to offer patients this new approach to tooth restoration. Contact us at Rye Smiles for Life and find out how this new dental technology can improve your smile and your life today.
