Time Is Valuable – Why Make 2 Visits to the Dentist When You Could Have a Beautiful Custom Made Crow

Does your tooth need protection? If so, you can restore and strengthen your tooth in one visit thanks to custom made CEREC® one-day crowns.

 

At Garden Oaks Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. Patrick Ruehle can make you a beautiful CEREC crown in one sitting. These crowns aren't just long-lasting, they'll match your actual teeth so your smile will look natural.

How are CEREC crowns made? 

Dr. Ruehle makes your crown using computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM). This software allows him to create impressions of your teeth that are much more accurate than standard methods.

 

During your procedure, Dr. Ruehle first prepares your tooth by cleaning it. Then, he uses a small intra-oral camera to create digital images of your teeth. With digital, 3-D images of your tooth, we can fabricate your custom crown quickly with precision.

 

After Dr. Ruehle makes the final touch-ups, a milling machine cuts the shape of your crown using your impressions as a guide.

Convenient and time-saving

CEREC® one-day crowns are growing in popularity due to their convenience and ability to save you time. 

 

Traditional crowns also work to restore teeth, but there’s usually more preparation. Your tooth may need to be reshaped so the crown can fit over it. And to get accurate tooth impressions, a putty has to go over your tooth.

 

Traditional crowns also have to be made in a laboratory, which can take weeks or months. Although you can get a temporary crown placed while you wait, these crowns aren’t durable so your tooth is still at risk for damage.

 

That’s not the case with custom made CEREC crowns, as they’re created in one day using innovative, advanced technology.

CEREC crowns can save you money

Since CEREC crowns are made in-office, there are no extra fees or laboratory costs. You also save money because you don’t have to take time off work for a second appointment.

Stronger than your natural teeth

While CEREC crowns are generally made of ceramic, other materials are also used to provide more strength and durability. Because some patients grind and clench their teeth, crowns need to be able to withstand that pressure to avoid cracks and fractures.
