Until recently, restorations demanded at least two dental visits since physical impressions were made and sent to a dental laboratory. Dr. Kenneth Ingber and his team of dental professionals are pleased to offer CEREC technology for same-day restorations. CEREC (short for ceramic reconstruction) uses CAD (computer-aided design) and CAM (computer-aided manufacturing) technology to produce the restoration at our office while you wait. Ingber Dental uses the CEREC system to make custom-made crowns, bridges, inlays, and onlays. The CEREC system can also be used for cosmetic dentistry to make custom-made veneers. This innovative treatment permits you to skip the discomfort and time of physical impressions and temporary covers.

"Dr. Ingber and his staff went out of their way to fit me in as a new patient on a Friday afternoon with extremely short notice. Dr. Ingber was knowledgable and kind, and the staff were very helpful. He explained things clearly too. I would recommend to friends."- J.C. / Google / Sep 06, 2019
"I always have a great experience with my hygienist Cindy."- S.B. / Demandforce / Sep 20, 2019
"I have been a patient of Dr. Porvaznik (Dr. P) for approximately 15 years. Since I live in a distant Maryland suburb, when I retired in 2007 I had planned to find a dentist closer to home but could not bring myself to make the break since I have never had a dentist who is as skilled and personable as Dr. P. I continue to make the long trip (about two hours) to D.C.for my dental appointments and expect to continue as long as possible since I have always been extremely satisfied with my experience at Ingber Dental. I would also like to give high points to Cindy (Dr. P's dental hygienist) and Randy (Dr. P's chairside assistant)."- M.F. / Demandforce / Sep 18, 2019

Restorations by CEREC at Ingber Dental help you complete your restorative or cosmetic dental treatment in a single visit. You may get a custom-made crown, bridge, inlay, onlay, or veneers with CEREC technology. With CEREC, you can avoid several visits, messy physical impressions, and temporary covers. CEREC restorations can also be beneficial if you have a dental emergency, such as a cracked crown or tooth.
What to Expect
A CEREC procedure will start with a consultation so your unique treatment plan can be created. The process will need a digital scan of your mouth. The scan will help our team be able to design your restoration. From there, your restoration will be sent to the CEREC machine to be created. The amount of time needed to create your restoration will be dependent on its size. Once the restoration is created, we will finish and polish the piece before cementing it in place. We can then fix the restoration so it is comfortable and blends with your natural teeth.
After your restoration is made, it is imperative for you to keep up a good at-home oral hygiene routine. You also should schedule annual dental exams and bi-annual cleanings at our office in Washington, D.C. At each appointment, your restoration will be checked and any necessary repairs or adjustments will be made to help maintain your healthy smile for as long as possible. If cared for properly, ceramic restorations can last for many years.
Dental restorations are often covered by dental insurance. We will contact your insurance to determine your policy and any out-of-pocket costs. If you do not have insurance, a member of our team will go over payments we accept, including low-interest financing.
