Same Day Smiles
Smile Makeovers in Just One Visit
We’re excited to bring state-of-the-art CEREC dentistry to Carmel Valley. Experience fast, efficient treatment with smile-changing results in just one day. CEREC technology eliminates the need for temporary crowns or veneers. When the milling is done in-house, there is no time spent waiting for the lab.
Precision Digital Mapping
The integration of Computer-Aided Design/Computer-Aided Manufacturing, or CAD/CAM, and CEREC technology means we are able to create a detailed 3D custom impression of your teeth without using bulky molds. What used to take several visits and wait time for materials to come back from the lab can now be done in one visit.
The Beauty of a Shiny New Dental Crown or Veneer
Once the 3D impression is complete, a small porcelain wafers called veneers are designed to correct visible imperfections. Discolorations, gaps, and misshapen teeth disappear from view when covered by veneers. A dental crown replaces larger areas of damage or decay. Both of these tooth-colored restorations drastically transform smiles and give patients an immediate boost in confidence.
What Can I Expect From Same Day Smiles in Carmel Valley?
Our team is here to show you the possibilities available with CAD/CAM and CEREC technology. We’ll take a look at your dental history and current dental health as we discuss your smile goals. Give us a call so we can get started on your custom dental treatment plan.
3D Dental Imaging
We are committed to helping the environment, one patient at a time. In-office CAD/CAM technology creates a 3D map of your teeth without the excessive exposure to radiation that occurs due to the number of traditional x-rays required for a similar 3D map. This also reduces our footprint by eliminating trips to and from the dental lab.
Custom Individualized Treatment Plan
No two smiles are alike, so we work together to create a beautiful, natural-looking smile. Tooth-colored restorations cover permanent discolorations, small gaps, and misshapen teeth. Chips and cracks are replaced with a porcelain crown or veneer made in-office for instant results.
Through patient-dentist collaboration, we will determine the best steps to take so you can reach your smile goals. CEREC technology provides patients with realistic new dental restorations in a single visit. This advanced technology mills your porcelain crown or veneer in-office. Dr. Schaffer then makes small adjustments, and the restorations are polished and prepared for placement.
The Art of Final Placement
It takes an eye for cosmetic detail to perfect the placement of new dental crowns and veneers. These permanent tooth-colored restorations will last for many years with proper care, so precision is necessary with final placement.
