Cerec Milling ZirconiaReceiving the news that you’re going to need some dental work is often more than just dread-inducing, it’s an inconvenience. How many appointments will you need? Will you need to take time off from work? Will the procedure be uncomfortable? At Charlotte Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, dental restorations, such as crowns, onlays/inlays, and implants can be successfully completed during a single visit.

In the past, patients might have had to leave with a temporary restoration while a crown was manufactured at an off-site facility. Now Dr. Broome and his team have the technology and software to complete complex procedures without the need for a second visit! To receive a thorough exam and single visit restorations, please schedule your appointment today by calling (704) 815-6659 or simply fill out the contact form on this page.

Our Cutting-Edge Dental Technology

3D image of Virtual Implant planningUsing the most sophisticated equipment available, our patients can leave our office with state-of-the-art single visit restorations. Our digital 3D scans with the Sirona Galileos Comfort Plus Digital 3D Cone Beam CT (CBCT) scanner provide us with crystal clear images in a matter of seconds, reducing the time it takes to plan and begin treatment.

Our Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramic (CEREC®) is a comprehensive system that combines a number of computer-assisted design (CAD) tools as well as a ceramic milling machine. Utilizing the Galileos CBCT scans and CEREC system allows us to create 3D images of the prepared tooth in order to design and create a customized restoration. The milling device then manufactures a unique ceramic or porcelain dental device based on the specifications of the 3D design in no more than 15 to 30 minutes.

Our upgraded Galileos scanner even enables us to visualize jaw movements in 3D, which allows us to successfully evaluate and treat even the most complex anatomical issues. The remarkable image quality allows for in-depth assessment of internal and external structures, which provides faster and more accurate diagnosis that can be reviewed in real-time with the patient to ensure comfort and confidence with the proposed procedures.

What to Expect During a Single Visit Restorations Appointment

SICAT - TMJ Jaw trackingWhether you need a crown, white fillings, veneers, onlays, or inlays, Charlotte Center for Cosmetic Dentistry can offer durable dental restorations thanks to our CEREC system and Galileos scanning technology. During your single visit, Dr. Broome will assess your unique needs and dental anatomy with highly detailed images.

Once the images have been taken, Dr. Broome will prepare the existing tooth structure for the restoration, which may involve shaving off decayed or damaged enamel and dentin, while preserving the healthy structures to create a foundation. Dr. Broome will then take digital impressions and design the final dental restoration via computer.

The exact specifications of the restoration will be transmitted to the on-site mill, which will fabricate the crown or dental restoration using a ceramic block that matches the color of your teeth to ensure a seamless appearance. Dr. Broome will make any necessary adjustments to the restoration before it is polished and cemented to the tooth. Once complete, the patient can leave after a single visit with perfectly prepared and fitted dental restorations that look and feel like real teeth.
