Dr. William E. Virtue DDS, NMD
I have been going to Dr. Virtue's dental office for many years after going to many other dentists in the area with no sucess. This practice is the TOTAL EXPERIENCE! From the time in walk in until you walk out you feel that not only are you in the best hands but that you are among experienced, caring friends. Not only do they care about their patients but about each other and it is apparent from the first visit. If you are looking for a dentist I strongly recommend Virtue Dental Care in Yadkinville. It is worth trying. Bet you can't just go one time!

Yadkinville NC area dentist explains the pros of CEREC crowns
Your time is important to you. It is important to us too. We understand that getting in and out of the dentist’s office quick is one way we can help make dental care more convenient for our patients. While tradition dental crowns are a proven and reliable restoration, one of their biggest cons is the amount of time that is required to have one placed. Traditional dental crowns require an initial appointment for impressions. These impressions are then sent off to an off-site lab for fabrication of the permanent restoration. The patient returns after a few weeks for a second placement appointment.

One of the biggest pros of CEREC dental crowns is they require a fraction of the time. Patients can leave the office with their new restoration in the same day.

So, what is the CEREC system?

CEREC crowns are made with the aid of computer technology. With the help of a special camera, images of the tooth are taken and then digitally converted into 3-D images. Dr. Virtue then uses CAD/CAM software to help design your new crown with precision. Once the design is complete, it is sent to the milling machine to create the restoration in around 20 minutes!

Some of the other pros of CEREC crowns include:
  • Time-saving convenience. Avoid coming in for a follow-up appointment and having to wear a temporary crown. In addition, adjustments are easy with CEREC crowns because they can be made on-site.
  • Comfort. Because images are taken digitally, physical impressions are not necessary.
  • Esthetic appeal. CEREC crowns are fabricated from porcelain ceramic which is a material that closely resembles natural tooth enamel. We can custom match your crown just like an off-site laboratory to allow it to blend in seamlessly in your smile.
CEREC crowns are just as durable and long-lasting as traditional crowns. They require the same standard of care as natural teeth. It is important to brush them at least twice each day, floss every day and stay current on your twice yearly exams. If you are in the Yadkinville area, and ready to find out for yourself why crowns in a day are a popular choice, call us today.
