Single Visit Crowns That’ll Have You Smiling
A cracked or broken tooth can be stressful, to say the least. At Cynthia L. Graves, we can restore broken or decayed teeth with dental crowns in Austin. Best of all, Dr. Graves can complete the entire procedure in a single visit.
What Is a Crown?
A crown is a “cap” made of composite resin that fits over your damaged tooth. It improves strength, shape, color and/or size while blending in to look just like a natural tooth.
The most common reasons a patient may need a dental crown include:
- Protection and strengthening – for a broken, weak or damaged tooth
- Cosmetic purposes – such as improving a tooth’s shape or size
- Tooth replacement – when used with a dental implant or bridge
What is CEREC?
CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, or “CEramic REConstruction”. This advanced method of crown manufacturing was first developed at the University of Zurich in 1980, in order to streamline the process of creating and inserting dental crowns.
CEREC dental crowns are created by dentists right in the office. By using specialized computer-aided design programs, individualized ceramic restorations can be built in minutes, rather than days. This allows the dentist performing the operation to complete it during a single appointment.
Traditional crowns take several visits to get just right but, using advanced CEREC® CAD/CAM (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing) technology, Dr. Graves can build your custom-crown while you wait.
First, Dr. Graves takes a three-dimensional, digital picture of your tooth using a sophisticated and highly accurate laser wand. Using CEREC® software, we design a crown that looks just like your natural tooth. Next, our in-house equipment mills your new crown. Once complete, Dr. Graves ensures that you get the correct fit and feel for a smile that’s as good as new.
