About Same-Day Smile Makeovers
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.
Same-Day Smile Makeover Reviews
"I had a great experience with Dr. Ross and his Team at City Smiles. I was recommended to Dr. Ross to have 2 crowns done on front teeth that were in bad shape. While my regular Dentist was "ok" for the regular checkups, I was looking for someone that was really among the best in high quality serious dental procedures. Before I get into the results, I want to comment on the professional high end ambiance and service that was there at every step of this experience. Dr. Ross personally took a good amount of time to examine my teeth and fully explain his plan to make my teeth look and work like new again. I was pleased that the both teeth were done in one trip - abiet a 3 hour appointment. The color match is perfect, and Love the idea of lots of big grins and smiles. This truely was a 5 star experience."- M.D. / Google / Jul 23, 2017
What to Expect
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.
