The dentists at McCarl Dental Group were among the first dentists in the Annapolis, Severna Park and Washington, DC area to learn and implement the techniques of the highest quality aesthetic dental restorations with porcelain crowns and veneers. The Drs. McCarl began their advanced post-doctorate training in cosmetic dentistry in the 1980s as these techniques were being invented and regularly attend continuing education for training in all of the latest restorative and cosmetic dental procedures and dental products. Successful cosmetic dental cases, whether a full-arch restoration or matching a single anterior porcelain crown or veneer, require extensive knowledge and planning as well as a high level of technical skill. McCarl dentists fully integrate art and science of dentistry with patient centered dental treatment.
With the iTero digital scanner, Drs. McCarl are able to use laser and optical scanning to digitally capture three-dimensional (3D) virtual images of tooth preparations so that all dental restorations including porcelain crowns and veneers are perfectly shaped with a precision fit. The iTero scanner captures 100,000 points of red laser light which creates perfect focus images of more than 300 focal depths of the tooth structure. Digital scanning also eliminates problems associated with traditional impressions including errors caused by air bubbles, tray movement, inadequate tray adhesive, or distortion. This is a “win-win” situation for our patients because in addition to increased precision, digital scanning is more comfortable than traditional dental impressions. These images are sent via high speed cable to our dental laboratory, BECDEN. All of the information that we provide to our dental laboratory is confidential, secure and protected consistent with HIPPA standards. In addition to digital impressions, our dentists send very detailed information for each dental patient, including the patient’s goals for their smile makeover. We provide photographs of the prepared teeth, facial photographs, study models with detailed descriptions, bite registration, and amount of incisal translucency and surface texture desired.
At McCarl Dental Group, we feature the latest technology, combined with twenty-five years of post-doctorate education and three generations of experience in caring for your smile.
