“​I Would Highly Recommend This Office..."

"...The entire staff treated me with great respect, monitoring my dental fear, stress and high anxiety levels throughout each appointment. They did blood pressure and pulse rate checks, gave me breaks whenever needed, explained each procedure before hand and had a stress ball waiting for me at each appointment. My only regret is that I do not live here permanently to keep this office as my only dentist!" Sherrie Brown - 5-Star Review

Why We Offer CEREC Technology

CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. This may sound complicated, but is actually a system that greatly simplifies the process of getting a dental crown. There are several advantages to CEREC...

Speed

Historically, dentists would outsource crown production to a lab, forcing patients to wait weeks for the finished product. Meanwhile, CEREC crowns are designed and fabricated here in the office and are typically ready in less than an hour.

Precision

CEREC uses computer-assisted design (CAD) and computer-assisted manufacturing (CAM) to transform precise digital impressions into a blueprint for your crown. This means your crown is precisely crafted to your smile, looks like your other teeth, and complements your bite.

Protection

In the past, patients would wear a temporary crown while they waited on the lab-made permanent version. CEREC eliminates the need for temporary crowns, giving you the necessary oral health protection before you walk out the door.

We Also Offer Lab-Made Options

While same-day crowns are a fantastic option for many of our Victoria patients, there are still reasons why we might recommend a traditional lab-made crown.

CEREC restorations are all made from dental porcelain, a strong material that matches the color of your natural teeth. However, some patients may opt for a different material based on their budget or needs. In addition to porcelain, the lab can create dental crowns out of a variety of materials including zirconia, gold, and porcelain fused to metal. During your consultation, we can discuss all of the options and determine if you are a better candidate for a CEREC crown or a lab-made dental crown.

Same-Day Crown Treatment Timeline

Consultation

You begin your treatment at our Victoria practice with a comprehensive dental exam. After assessing your oral health, our dentist will create a personalized treatment plan.

Preliminary Procedures

Sometimes, we need to perform a preliminary treatment to address the underlying problem. For example, a serious infection may require a root canal to remove bacteria and decay from the inner tooth structure.

Tooth Prep

Next, our dentist reshapes the affected tooth to make room for the dental crown. Once the tooth has been reshaped, we take digital impressions.

Design

Your scans appear on a chairside monitor. We use these scans to design your custom crown. Once our dentist has completed the blueprint, it is immediately sent to our in-office milling machine.

Production

The CEREC milling device is set up with a solid block of tooth-colored porcelain. In under an hour, it will carefully carve the dental crown to the precise specifications of your smile.

Placement

When your crown is ready, our dentist will place it over the reshaped tooth and assess the fit and feel. If you and the dentist are both happy with the results, we cement the crown in place with special dental cement.

Transform Your Teeth in One Appointment

A single damaged or missing tooth can affect the look of your entire smile. With a natural-looking dental crown, your smile can appear more healthy and attractive. Many of our Victoria patients feel more confident after treatment and no longer hesitate to smile.

Information about Implant-Supported Crowns

If you are interested in replacing missing teeth with dental implant-supported crowns, your treatment timeline will look different.

Implants are placed in a surgical procedure and fuse to your jawbone over the course of about four to six months. When this process is complete, we move on to the next phase of placing the prosthetic tooth. While the dental implant treatment process can span several months, it is ultimately considered the best solution for patients with a single missing tooth.

“A+ Job, Will Recommend”

"Grant did an awesome job fixing an old filling and capping a new one, he took great measures on ensuring I did not feel any pain or discomfort. He also took pictures of the tooth through the process and explained exactly what he was doing and why. A+ job, will recommend." Troy Koenig - 5-Star Review
