CEREC in Plano, TX - One Day Custom Made Ceramic Restorations
CEREC is a piece of dental technology that makes getting custom-made prosthetics a much quicker, and far more convenient process. With CEREC dentistry from our Plano dental office, you can get new, permanent crown in just one office visit. We’re committed to giving our patients the best of advanced dental care; by using CEREC, you don’t have to wait to get a beautifully restored smile.
How CEREC Works
CEREC, or Chair-side Economic Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, consists of special computer software and a milling component. With the software, Drs. Williams and Sivie are able to capture digital images of your teeth and then import them into the system, where CEREC re-creates a 3D mold of your smile.
From there, your new crown is created on-screen and engineered to be a perfect fit. With the design in place, the milling machine can create your new crown from a solid block of porcelain in around one hour – taking the entire process down from two weeks for standard treatment. There are no messy impressions and no lengthy waiting period. If you come to our Plano dental office in need of a crown, you can get it that same day.
Benefits of One-Visit Dentistry for Cosmetic and Restorative Treatment
The greatest benefit CEREC presents to patients is the one visit turn-around time for treatment. Because patients get their permanent crown before they leave our office, they don’t have to deal with any of the following:
- Temporary prosthetics
- Diet restrictions
- Repeated dental office visits
Your CEREC crown is the same quality of strength of a dental crown fabricated in a lab and uses the same processes and materials. Better yet, the convenience of one-day dental crowns comes at no extra cost; CEREC crowns are the same price as lab-created dental prosthetics.
Our one-visit dental crowns are stained and finished to match your natural teeth, for a seamless fit and a beautifully restored smile.
Alternatives to CEREC Dental Crowns: For patients who prefer gold crowns over porcelain or ceramic, or who cannot tolerate longer dental visits, we’re happy to provide standard dental crowns created in a lab over several weeks.
We make restoring and enhancing your smile a single visit process. Contact our office today to learn more about the convenience of CEREC dental crowns in Plano, TX.
