Why Wait When We Offer Cerec Crowns in a Day?

Dental crowns are an effective option for strengthening and protecting damaged teeth. The downside? The procedure can take several appointments. That’s why Dr. Patrick Ruehle and the team at Garden Oaks Family & Cosmetic Dentistry offer CEREC® one-day crowns.

These state-of-the-art dental crowns are durable, custom-made, and only take one day to complete. You'll leave your appointment with a fully restored smile in only a few hours.  

The many benefits CEREC® one-day crowns

While time and convenience are the two biggest benefits of CEREC crowns, they have a myriad of advantages over traditional crowns. Here are a few:

Superior imaging

For starters, CEREC crowns use a small intra-oral camera to take digital impressions of your teeth and mouth. Not only does this let Dr. Ruehle take more accurate images, but it also cuts out the mouthful of materials needed for traditional imaging.

On top of that, with CEREC’s superior imaging, you’ll get a crown that better matches your surrounding teeth and you get to watch Dr. Ruehle make it.

Quick and easy

Unlike normal dental crowns, which can take weeks or months to make, CEREC crowns use advanced computer technology to quickly make your crown. Dr. Ruehle can make, shape, and fit your crown in just a few minutes.

Durable and long-lasting

CEREC crowns use several different materials to enhance their durability and make them stronger than your natural teeth. That’s because some patients unintentionally grind and clench their teeth. With proper care, your CEREC crown can last much longer than traditional ones.

Better protection and more comfort

Normally, getting a dental crown involves using putty to make an impression of your tooth. Having the putty on your tooth often causes discomfort, and it takes more time because the putty has to go on your surrounding teeth as well.

In some cases, depending on the condition of your teeth, you may have to wear a temporary crown while your permanent one is being made. This puts your tooth at risk since temporary crowns don’t offer the same protection.

Clinical studies on CEREC® one-day crowns

We’ve highlighted that CEREC crowns offer better durability and protection with more accurate impressions. But don’t just take our word for it, several studies back up this claim.

One study consisted of 60 participants who received one-day dental crowns. The goal of the study was to see if any damage to the crowns occurred two years after placement. 

At the time of this study, patients with traditional crowns frequently reported cracks after two years.

When all 60 participants returned for their two-year follow-up, none of their crowns had any damage.

Another study on CEREC showed a 90% survival rate 10 years after placement. The researchers stated that dental restorations made with the CEREC computer system are better than traditional methods.

You need to protect your tooth, so why wait? Schedule your appointment to get your one-day crown at Garden Oaks Family & Cosmetic Dentistry.
