About Same-Day Smile Makeovers@headingTag>
Anyone who wants a better-looking smile without a long wait, temporary restorations, or multiple visits to the dental office may be a great candidate for the CEREC same-day smile makeover. CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) uses CAD/CAM (computer aided design and manufacturing) to create custom restorations (inlays, onlays, crowns, and veneers) while the patient waits. The restoration can be made, fitted, and placed for a more attractive smile in one visit. Board-certified dentist Dr. Stuart Ross has been using the CEREC machine for 25 years and has taught classes to help other dental professionals. Residents & out of town visitors in the Washington, DC Metro area can schedule a consultation at City Smiles DC to learn more about CEREC same-day smile makeovers.

"Dr. Ross came recommended to me by a friend's family dentist, and I couldn't be happier with the service I receive. Not only do Dr. Ross and his staff make sure you're comfortable and take the time to go over what you're looking for with your dental health/provider, they also go above and beyond to address specific areas of concern. Dr. Ross clearly is incredibly experienced in dentistry and keeps abreast of the latest technology, while also being personally invested in his patients. He provides his professional expertise but also works with you to plan out your care based on your specific needs, priorities, or limitations. Also, I have incredibly sensitive teeth, and his staff checked in every step of the way to make sure I was comfortable and adjusted their approach as necessary. They are so gentle and thorough with cleanings--first cleaning I actually enjoyed! If you are someone who is anxious or had a difficult history with your teeth, or just looking for a great cleaning, I couldn't recommend him/his team more!"- A.G. / Google / May 29, 2017
"My experience with Dr.Ross, Melissa, Jennifer and Tina was great. On my first appointment I came with my 2 yr old because I couldn't find a babysitter in time and everyone was very accommodating. Dr.Ross' wife even played with him while I used the restroom! Wonderful team wonderful service! Also my dental work is amazing, highly recommended."- S.G. / Yelp / May 27, 2017

What to Expect@headingTag>
After the patient's custom CEREC smile makeover plan is created, the patient's teeth will be prepared and scanned for digital impressions. This eliminates the older gooey impressions. The patient's custom restoration(s) will be designed with advanced CEREC software to pixel precise fit their mouth. Once the restoration(s) is designed, the CEREC machine will grind and mill the custom piece(s) while the patient waits. The milled restoration will be finished and then fitted into the patient's mouth. The dentist may customize the restoration for an optimal look and fit. The length of the procedure will vary based on what is included in the patient's smile makeover plan.
The dentist will go over post-treatment care instructions and any tips to help maintain the new restorations. Patients should avoid hard foods and putting excess pressure on their teeth to prolong the life of their restorations. While CEREC restorations are more resistant to staining than natural teeth, patients should be careful about staining food and beverages. With good home care and regular visits to the dentist's office for cleanings and exams, CEREC restorations should last many years.
The cost of a CEREC same-day smile makeover will vary based on what is included in the patient's unique treatment plan. Cosmetic restorations, like inlays, onlays, crowns, and veneers are typically not covered by dental insurance. Our office can go over cost estimates, payment options, and available financing during the patient's consultation.
