Cerec Technology


Sometimes the best option for your tooth is a gold crown. However, in the large majority of cases, our doctors recommend high-precision porcelain restorations. We make high-precision restorations with our OmniCam robotic mill. These CAD/CAM porcelain crowns, veneers & onlays are the most natural appearing restorations possible. Our doctors are experts with this revolutionary technology.

As always, the benefits of CEREC restorations include:

No more temporary crowns! Old style crowns needed to be made at a lab outside our office. Patients would wear a temporary crown until the permanent one was completed at the lab. The temporary cement used has a weak bond, often resulting in the temporary crown coming off. If this happens, the patient needs an extra visit to the office to have it put back in. A lab crown can take 2-3 weeks, and patients would be wearing a temporary crown for this period.

Another huge benefit is that we no longer need to take impressions with that “gooey” material in a bulky  tray. We simply dry your teeth and scan! Your crown is designed by the dentist on the CEREC computer, and you can watch it being designed and made in our office.

We customize the look of your new crown in office.  Every smile is unique and we can make sure your new crown blends right in!  Customized shade matching is done for every new crown.  Our patients even have a difficult time determining which tooth is the new crown!  Our staining and glazing oven is on site and ready to make you a beautiful custom-matched restoration.


Anyone interested in brightening your smile?  The Cerec robot and our accomplished Dentists can help!  Porcelain veneers can change the shape and color of your teeth.  We have the ability to give you the Hollywood smile that you have always wished for, and we can give it to you in a matter of days!

Above is an image of a crown being shaped out of a porcelain block in the CEREC’s Milling Chamber. The milling process takes between 10 – 20 minutes.  When the crown has completed the milling process, it will be tried in the mouth and adjusted.  Once the fit is verified, the crown will be custom stained, glazed, and fired in our glazing oven.  A visual examination to admire and give final approval for shade, then the CEREC crown or veneer is placed with cement to complete your smile. No more waiting for the cement to dry!  The new cement is set with a special light, so when you leave here you can drink and eat immediately as long as your aren’t feeling too numb.

Finally, if your crown procedure requires a margin below your gum line then we are uniquely equipped to provide that kind of advanced care due to the fact that we have a industry leading dental laser system known as the Light Walker ATS (Neodymium & Erbium dual laser system). This industry shifting technology allows us to do things that were not possible before its advent. Please visit our office and speak to our team of dedicated professionals about your dental needs.  

What Our Patients Are Saying

I love this dentist!! I have been through about 4 different dentists before finding RTC. I live in DC and drive to Reston for my appointments and I think it's worth it. The staff is professional and helpful. The dentist I have seen explains everything and is willing to take the time to answer any questions you may have. Didn't feel rushed at all.


Great service, excellent staff, awesome overall


I have had a lot of bad experiences with dentist in the past but RTC is different and makes you feel at ease. Thank you!! Chris


Best dentist I've ever had.


I have been to this dentist's office twice and each time was a great experience. Everything is explained to you in detail and the staff is extremely helpful and kind. Would recommend this dentist to anyone.


I haven't been to a dentist in years but they got me headed on the right path with friendliness and without a lecture.


Dr Ali was extremely helpful, professional and very caring. He saw me on an emergency basis on Saturday. I needed a crown and he replaced it that very same day. I was very grateful for him taking the time and effort to help me. I have worked in the dental/medical field for many years. I recommend him to all my patients. Thank you Dr Ali!


Incredibly modern facility; exceptionally qualified and professional staff; courteous patient service; treatment integrity with conservative, cost-conscious approach. Cannot imagine ever needing any other dental service. RTCD sets the standard.


Doctor Ali and his entire staff are very professional. They are excellent at explaining all procedures. I am completely satisfied with their practice.


I love RTC Dental...I love the receptionist/patient Liaison. She "ALWAYS" has a very warm and welcoming voice and persona. I have received treatment from both Dr. "Ali" Miamee and Dr. Aman. They are both, very knowledgeable and gifted in their craft. I prefer Dr. Miamee because he started my original plan of care. Therefore, I feel most comfortable with him . Yet, both doctors have great bedside manners. I always refer patients to RTC #ILoveRTCDental
