The One-visit Smile Makeover
Studies show that an attractive, vibrant smile can improve self-confidence and the way others perceive you. To many, a person who has a beautiful smile is considered intelligent, successful, healthy, and friendly. Unfortunately, not everyone has the genetic make-up to naturally develop a sensational smile. Now, with same-day veneers, everyone – including you – can have a natural-looking, beautiful smile, almost instantly.
Veneers are often referred to as an instant smile makeover or instant orthodontics because they address a wide range of cosmetic dental imperfections. Veneers cover the front surface of teeth to reshape, brighten, and completely alter their appearance. With veneers, alternative treatment options, such as bonding, whitening, crowns, and even braces, can be avoided.
Thanks to CEREC® technology, we are able to design, fabricate, and place porcelain veneers in a single visit. Oftentimes, six to eight veneers can transform a smile’s overall look. The number of veneers that is right for you will be determined during a consultation with Dr. Orchard.
Introducing CEREC® Technology
CEREC® is a breakthrough system that utilizes computer-aided design and manufacturing to fabricate custom restorations in a single dental visit. Every veneer made with CEREC® is based on a custom design, digitally created by the cosmetic dentist. A CEREC® e.max block of porcelain is selected in a shade that will blend seamlessly with your smile. Then, our CEREC® milling unit fabricates each veneer in approximately one hour. We don’t have to send impressions to a dental lab, then wait for the veneers to be made and delivered. Instead, we design, mill, and permanently attach veneers.
What Else Can CEREC® Do?
In addition to milling custom veneers, CEREC® can fabricate porcelain crowns, bridges, inlays, and onlays. We understand the importance of your time, and CEREC® is one way we can help you save time while still providing quality treatment. Restorations that formerly required multiple appointments are now delivered in a single visit. In addition, dental impressions no longer require gummy material that many patients find uncomfortable. We rely on convenient, detailed 3-D imaging to capture digital impressions that are far more precise.
