Chevy Chase Dental Center Acquires Advanced Technology to Save Patients Time With One-Visit Dental Crowns

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - June 02, 2016) - Chevy Chase Dental Center has just invested in the leading edge technology, Planmeca PlanScan and E4D. With this integrated system the Washington, DC practice is able to provide patients with custom-made dental crowns in just one visit to the dental office.

When a tooth has been severely decayed, damaged, or weakened a dentist will frequently recommend strengthening the tooth with a dental crown. A crown encases the damaged tooth beginning at the gum line, restoring the tooth to its optimal shape and structure.

Dental crowns have long been an important part of both cosmetic and restorative dentistry. However, the procedure for receiving a crown has been time-consuming and uncomfortable, requiring several trips to the dentist over the course of many weeks.

As part of their commitment to acquiring and implementing the best technology to help their patients, Chevy Chase Dental Center has just invested in the Planmeca PlanScan system. This technology allows the dentists at Chevy Chase to complete the entire dental crown procedure in just one visit.

The dentists at Chevy Chase Dental Center can now take digital impressions and scans of a patient's teeth, design the crown using advanced computer software, and manufacture it using an in-office high precision milling machine.

These Planmeca PlanScan E4D crowns are made from high-quality dental ceramic, and matched to the patient's natural tooth color. With no more temporary crowns or multiple return visits, the dentists at Chevy Chase Dental Center expect this new system to be a huge benefit to their patients.

The practice, founded by Dr. Robinson over 20 years ago, recently reopened as Chevy Chase Dental Center when Dr. Telis joined the practice. The practice continues to provide comprehensive, cutting edge, general and cosmetic dental services with a friendly, caring touch. Patients enjoy the convenience of having a full range of services all under one roof, including General DentistryDental CrownsDental BridgesImplant RestorationOrthodontics/InvisalignPorcelain VeneersTeeth Whitening and others.
