Rating: 5 Dermatologist Walnut Creek - Five Star Reviews By James W.
Dr. William E. Virtue DDS, FIAOMT, 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!

What Yadkinville patients can expect from CEREC restorations
Dental restorations like crowns are typically a multiple appointment procedure. At Virtue Dental Care, we up the ante by offering our patients the advantages of CEREC or same day restorations. Now, patients can come into Dr. Virtue’s office with broken or damaged teeth and leave with a beautiful comfortable crown or onlay in a short visit.

CEREC stands for “Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics.” Simply put, the CEREC system allows doctors to create porcelain crowns quickly through digital milling technology. With traditional crowns, physical impressions are taken and then sent off to a ceramist at an outside laboratory for custom creation. This process can take up to several weeks. In the meantime, patients were fitted with a temporary crown to protect the tooth. With CEREC technology, there is no more temporary crown and no more several weeks wait.

At the beginning of a CEREC appointment, Dr. Virtue will prepare the tooth for the crown or onlay, which involves removing mercury fillings and decay. A specialized camera is then used to take digital images of the teeth. These images are then converted into a digital rendering which is then sent to the milling machine to create the porcelain. The customized crown is milled in less than thirty minutes and the dentist is then able to bond it into place.

Patients can expect their CEREC crowns to be strong, durable, and aesthetically pleasing just like traditional crowns made by an outside lab. The only difference is the drastic reduction in time it takes to make them and put them permanently in place. CEREC crowns allow patients with busy schedules to receive high quality restorations in just a fraction of the time.

Dental crowns don’t have to be a multiple appointment process.
