Discover how same-day crowns could replace your damaged tooth in just one visit.
No one wants to continue to go back and forth to see their Houston dentist Dr. Brent Browning. We understand how busy your schedule is, but we also know the importance of maintaining a healthy smile. When a tooth becomes cracked or fractured don’t fret about all the time you’ll spend going back and forth. Now you can get CEREC restorations in just one visit.
Get Your New Tooth Fast
As a Houston patient opting for CEREC restorations, there are countless benefits that you can gain from just being able to get your tooth in just one visit. Most CEREC crowns can be designed, fabricated and placed in under an hour.
With traditional crowns, you would need to come into our office at least twice so we could prepare the tooth and take impressions and then give the lab time to create your crown. But now we take out all those unnecessary steps by creating dental crowns in-house. This means less waiting to get the smile you want.
Avoid Dental Limbo
Traditional crowns can take a couple weeks to be made. In the meantime, your weakened tooth needs some protection. That’s why your dentist in Houston, TX will place a temporary crown over your tooth until your permanent one is ready. Unfortunately, temporary crowns aren’t as durable and strong because they aren’t designed for long-term use. This means that some patients may deal with temporary crowns that crack or come off if they aren’t careful.
But since CEREC crowns can be made in just one visit there is never a need to have a temporary crown. You’ll get your brand new permanent crown by the end of your visit.
No Messy Impressions
The CAD/CAM technology used in our Houston dental office is state-of-the-art. Instead of using a messy putty-like resin to take a mold of your teeth, our equipment uses a small handheld camera to snap photos of your teeth. Not only does this save time but it also makes the process a bit more pleasant for our patients. Plus, the CEREC camera allows us to get better measurements and shapes to create a crown that’s more precise and offers a better fit.
Your Houston, TX family dentist Dr. Browning is here for all of your cosmetic, general and preventive needs. Whether you want to find out more about CEREC crowns or any of our other services, feel free to give our office a call.
