We understand that your time is valuable. In some cases dental treatment can’t wait, and shouldn’t be put off. To help our patients fit the dental care they need into their busy schedules, our Oak Harbor dentists can perform some procedures in a single appointment with same day restorations. Using the latest training and technology such as CEREC®, we can give you a beautifully restored smile in just one visit to our Oak Harbor dentists.
How Do Same-Day Restorations Work?
Damaged teeth cause more than cosmetic damage to your smile. Without proper treatment, deep cracks and cavities threaten your oral health, putting you at risk for gum disease and tooth decay. In these instances, proactive treatment and restoration is critical to getting your smile back to a higher standard of health.
At Whidbey Dental Associates, CEREC® CAD/CAM technology is a revolutionary way we help patients restore their smile in just one visit. After we’ve treated the cause of damage, our Oak Harbor dentists use the CEREC® intraoral camera to take a digital impression of your tooth. Patients appreciate that this digital option replaces the need for traditional impressions.
This model is then uploaded to specialized software, allowing our dentists to design a custom porcelain restoration right in our office. Once we’re satisfied with the design, it’ll be sent to our in-office milling machine for manufacture while you wait.
As soon as the restoration is ready, our dentists will place the restoration into your smile and check for a proper fit. Once our Oak Harbor dentists are satisfied with the results, you’re free to leave our office with a beautifully restored smile.
Same-Day Treatment Options
Part of the advantage of CEREC® is that this restoration method allows our Oak Harbor dentists to provide patients with the unique, reliable restorative care they need quickly. Thanks to this innovative technology, we’re able to create a number of different porcelain restorations, such as crowns and onlays.
