Severna Park, MD cosmetic dentist, Dr. Neil R. Woods, is offering patients the chance to get complete, customized dental restorations in just one office visit using CEREC, the latest technology available for restorative dentistry. With CEREC technology, Dr. Woods can create and place ceramic restorations in just one office visits for crowns, permanent dental implants, inlays, and onlays.
CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, and uses the latest computer imaging and laser technology to measure, design, and create restorations from small ceramic blocks. The CEREC machine uses the precise imaging to carve exact restorations using high-powered laser and water technology in about 1-2 hours.
“CEREC is allowing us to do amazing things with restorative dentistry, and is offering our patients much more accuracy and convenience,” said Dr. Neil Woods, implant dentist in Severna Park, MD. “Whether our patients need traditional crowns for an existing tooth or a dental implant, or just an inlay or only for a decayed tooth, CEREC saves our patients time by only requiring one office visit and, overall, it gives them a finished result that is precise and looks totally natural.”
Traditional ceramic restorations take 2-3 office visits to complete, since they first require an office visit to take impressions, which are then sent off to an external lab for creation. During the second visit, patients receive their permanent restorations but in certain cases, they have to wait longer if adjustments are needed. With CEREC, the entire process is completed within just a few hours.
As a certified provider of cosmetic dental implants in Severna Park, MD, Dr. Woods is able to use CEREC technology to create customized crowns that are attached to the implants once the surgery is completed and the implants have properly healed. With CEREC, Dr. Wood can design, create, and adjust the patients' crowns all in one sitting to ensure ultimate comfort and aesthetics.
Dr. Woods received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from NYU School of Dentistry more than 30 years ago and also completed a residency in reconstructive techniques and IV sedation at Johns Hopkins University. Dr. Woods is committed to continuously updating his training in the latest dental techniques and procedures to ensure that his patients receive the best care possible. He has a personal philosophy of being available for his patients 24/7, and is known to often give out his personal cell phone number where patients can reach him in the case of an emergency.
