Team member working witht he Glidwell milling systemAt McCarl Dental Group, we’re dedicated to staying at the forefront of the dental field, which is why we are always updating our dentistry technologies. We recently invested in the state-of-the-art Glidewell Fastmill.io milling unit to offer same-day dental restoration system. This unique digital dentistry tool allows us to design, craft, and place a custom, ceramic dental crown in just one visit to our Greenbelt or Millersville dental offices.

What is the Glidewell Fastmill.io System?

Glidewell Fastmill.io is a digital dentistry system that gives us the option to offer same day dental restorations for our patients. Traditionally, we would capture intraoral scans, design your restoration, and send all of the information to a dental lab where your crown would be crafted. While your restoration was crafted at the lab, you would have a temporary dental crown placed. The temporary then needed to be removed at a second appointment for the permanent crown to be placed. This in-office milling unit lets us skip over the temporary restoration and the second visit. Instead, we capture diagnostic images, design your flawless smile, craft the dental crown in-office, and place the restoration in just one trip to our dental office.

How has Glidewell Innovated Dental Care?

The Glidewell Fastmill.io system is one of the most trusted same day dental restoration systems available. After decades of continuous innovation and dedication to improving every aspect of treatment, the Glidewell Milling Unit makes it possible for our dentists to provide the same exceptional level of dentistry service without needing to schedule multiple visits to our dental office. Additionally, the digital smile design system reduces human error between our office and the dental lab, ensuring higher quality and more precisely crafted results.
