At Peters Dental Associates in Houston, TX, area patients have access to solutions that can help in repairing and reconstructing the smile. While other dentists int eh community offer dental crowns, we are one of the few offering same-day dental crowns with our state-of-the-art CEREC technology.
Same-day dental crowns
Dental crowns are “caps” that are made of ceramic to cover the visible portion of a tooth after it has been weakened or damaged. Crowns are a common choice for repairing the smile, especially when it comes to the teeth near the back of the mouth called the molars. This is because dental crowns can withstand strong chewing and biting forces. When these restorations need to be made, other dental practices require weeks to create the custom restoration in a dental laboratory sometimes states away. Instead, the team at Peters Dental Associates is pleased to offer CEREC same-day dental crowns, creating these pieces right in the office while patients wait.
Preparation is the same, but impressions are made via a digital device. This information is translated to the CEREC device which then mills out the custom crown from a block of chosen porcelain. Within about twenty minutes, the crown is complete and ready to bond into place. Patients love the ability to restore their smile in just one appointment, and are pleased at the quality and strength of these in-house crowns.
How long do dental crowns last?
Dental crowns made with CEREC are just as strong and beautiful as those made in a dental laboratory. When patients take good care of their smile, they can expect their dental crown to last a decade or longer.
