Experience the Difference with Glidewell

Your time is valuable, and you often don’t have any flexibility in your schedule for multiple dental appointments. As a result, it might be tempting to delay a dental procedure until another time; however, waiting too long might cause you to lose your tooth. What if you could get the high-quality restoration you need in just one day? Now you can with the Glidewell milling system. You can choose quick, natural-looking results with one visit dentistry.

What is the Glidewell System?

Glidewell is a revolutionary technology that uses digital dentistry to provide same-day restorations. Traditionally, it takes multiple appointments to create a restoration, like a crown or bridge. After preparing your tooth, you would be required to hold a foul-tasting material in your mouth for several minutes to capture the information necessary for the dental lab to create your restoration. This could take at least a couple of weeks, so you would need a temporary restoration until your final appointment to have your permanent one bonded in place.

The Glidewell system streamlines the process. Instead of taking several visits to complete, you can have the high-quality restoration you need in about 1 hour. We’ll take a digital impression with our Itero scanner which works seamlessly with the and craft your restoration in-office, so there’s no need for a temporary one or a second appointment.
