Single Day Crowns
Restore Your Smile in One Appointment
A dental crown is a small cap that we can place over your damaged tooth to restore its appearance and protect it from further deterioration. They’re made from durable, tooth-colored porcelain to ensure a natural appearance and long-lasting results.
While the typical process for receiving a dental crown takes weeks, we use CEREC 3D® technology to restore your smile in just one short appointment. Thanks to this convenient option, you can enjoy the benefits of a flawless smile faster than ever before.
At Central Texas Dental Care, we’re proud to feature CEREC technology for milling your restorations. This advanced 3D software allows our dentists to provide a natural-looking, custom-fitted crown in just over an hour. Best of all, you can have multiple teeth treated in the same appointment for maximum convenience.
We’ll begin the process by taking a digital scan of your tooth. This eliminates the need for messy and imprecise dental impressions, allowing us to provide higher-quality restorations that look better and fit more comfortably. This process also requires less removal of your natural tooth structure, helping to minimize further dental issues.
With CEREC, you won’t have to worry about wearing a temporary crown or scheduling multiple appointments. Instead, you can complete the entire treatment process in one short office visit — that means less time in the dental chair and more time enjoying your new smile.
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.
