SAME DAY DENTISTRY
A beautiful smile is one of your greatest assets – a reflection of happiness and good health. At Alabama Smile Design, we are leading the way when it comes to technology, patient convenience and beautiful smiles. We know that your time is valuable so we are one of the few offices in the area to offer CEREC Same Day Dentistry. This technology offers the most advanced process to restore teeth and it is all completed in ONE VISIT!
CEREC provides us the ability to design and place inlays, onlays, crowns, veneers and bridges that are custom tailored to your teeth. Imagine walking out of our door with your dream smile? This technology also enables Dr. O’Donnell to provide among the finest and fastest dental implants the Gulf Coast has available.
You can trust Dr. O’Donnell and his team to create a beautiful solution for your smile. Dr. O’Donnell is a CEREC trainer and spends his “off time” teaching other professionals how to implement this technology in their own practice. When you choose a CEREC doctor, you can feel confident in their dedication to accuracy, efficiency, and durability.
At Alabama Smile Design, we do specialize in same day dentistry with CEREC restorations; Dr. O’Donnell has the extensive training and experience necessary to achieve the best possible result. He will customize your crown to fit the shape, size, contour, and bite of your mouth. This results in long-lasting, beautiful crowns faster, cleaner, and customized to fit your smile.
So, What is Same Day Dentistry & How Do I Benefit?
CEREC stands for CERamic REConstruction. This is a computerized 3D imaging and camera assisted design center that allows our team to take digital impressions of a patient’s teeth via the use of a scanner, which captures an image of the teeth and gums, eliminating the need for messy impressions. You read that right…NO GOOEY MESS! The images are then used with an in-office milling unit for same-day restorations.
This allows Dr. O’Donnell to create full porcelain crowns same day in about an hour and a half. Most dentists, by comparison, have to wait for a separate lab to construct your crown and ship it to your dentist. You are then called back for another appointment in order to receive your permanent restoration. This is no longer how it works at Alabama Smile Design!
Yes, what once took multiple appointments can now be completed in just ONE visit! Getting that smile you’ve always dreamed of is easier than ever with CEREC technology.
