CEREC Single Day Crowns in Hewitt, TX
Restore Your Smile in One Appointment
Having a broken, damaged, or decaying tooth can lead to many health issues– and not just oral health. Living a social life can be much more challenging when you don’t feel like you have the confidence to smile fully and outwardly. That’s why our team at Central Texas Dental Care proudly offers single-day crowns that look as real as your healthy teeth, are made from sustainable material, and get you back out into the world with a full and natural smile.
A typical dental crown will take weeks to design and place across multiple appointments. Our CEREC 3D® technology is a great, effective way to shorten the process drastically. Thanks to this technology, you can take advantage of an incredibly convenient option for your dental crown treatment and enjoy all the benefits of a beaming smile in less than 24 hours.
What Are Dental Crowns?
Many people experience damaged teeth or have cosmetic imperfections in their smiles. Dental crowns are a minimally intrusive, yet highly effective solution. A dental crown is essentially a cap, or cover, for your teeth. The cap not only protects your tooth, but also restores its strength and helps ensure its longevity. In addition, your dental crown will be customized to blend seamlessly with the teeth around it to ensure a beautiful smile.
Dental crowns consist of durable, dental-grade resin or porcelain. These materials are colorized and shaped to match your other teeth and are impossible to differentiate once they’re a part of your smile.
Our Hewitt dentists use crowns to solve an array of dental problems and enhance several procedures, including:
- Damaged or missing teeth
- Decayed teeth
- Dental bridges
- Crown lengthening
- Dental implants
Dental crowns are a great solution that lends a hand in supporting your tooth structurally and boosting your smile into a full and bright one. The caveat with traditional crowns is that you need multiple appointments for the doctor to apply them properly. However, opting for our CEREC technology will have you out of the office in a single day with comfortable, supportive crowns and a beautiful smile. Read on to learn more about the process.
Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramic (CEREC) is a modern and cutting-edge technology that we’re proud to feature at Central Texas Dental Care. It’s an advanced 3D technology that allows us to create flawless restorations from a quick, non-invasive scan. CEREC’s application of 3D scanning and digitalization technology has expedited the process of crowning while also simplifying it significantly.
The CEREC process is generally a straightforward 3-step restoration. First, the doctor will prepare your tooth for a crown, then take a digital impression of your mouth and send it off to the CEREC machine. The revolutionary machine will analyze your impression and print out a precise restoration. The doctor will then match the printout’s color with your natural teeth, place your restoration, and have you out of our office and smiling in just a couple of hours.
Using CEREC, our dentists can now provide you with a custom-fitted dental crown in a remarkably short amount of time without the need for a second appointment. The convenience of this procedure is unmatched, and the CEREC machine can even produce several restorations a day. This means that if you have multiple damaged or decaying teeth, we can successfully apply dental crowns to all or most of them in one appointment.
Our goal is to have you smiling in the quickest turnaround possible, and CEREC is the best tool for that. Crowns made using CEREC technology will fit more comfortably and feel more natural than traditional dental crowns, making this procedure a winning strategy for restoring stunning smiles in record time!
Frequently Asked Questions
How long do CEREC restorations last?
Generally, a CEREC restoration is designed to last anywhere from 10 to 15 years with the right care and maintenance — sometimes even longer with good oral hygiene. This means brushing at least twice a day with a soft-bristled brush and flossing daily. It’s also important to schedule regular dental check-ups and cleanings to maintain healthy teeth and gums.
CEREC single-day crowns save as much natural tooth structure as possible, minimizing the risk of future complications. To learn more, give us a call at (254) 666-1686 and a member of our staff will explain the benefits to expect when choosing CEREC.
Are CEREC crowns better than traditional crowns?
When compared to traditional crowns, CEREC single-day crowns are crafted with the utmost precision and accuracy for a better, more comfortable fit. They don’t require a messy, loose adhesive or temporary restoration like traditional crowns do. With CEREC, patients can expect a more durable and long-lasting alternative for restoring any number of damaged teeth.
Best of all, our CEREC crowns are completed in as little as one visit to Central Texas Dental Care. This means less time spent in the dental chair and more time showing off your new, stunning smile.
Who is an ideal candidate for a single-day crown?
In most cases, ideal candidates for single-day crowns are patients looking for a fast and easy solution to restore damaged teeth. With CEREC technology, Dr. Sager can treat multiple teeth in the same appointment for optimal comfort and convenience.
During your initial visit, we’ll examine your entire mouth and discuss your treatment goals to determine whether single-day crowns are right for you. To get started, contact our Hewitt office at (254) 666-1686 and we’ll schedule your free consultation with Dr. Sager.
Can a CEREC restoration be removed?
Yes, a CEREC restoration can be safely removed in the event of sudden gum irritation or oral health complications. Our Hewitt dental team can remove the crown, thoroughly clean it, and bond it to your natural tooth again. This may relieve any discomfort, irritation, or pain you may be experiencing. We recommend scheduling an appointment so Dr. Sager can examine the area and assess whether your crown needs to be removed or replaced.
