Having a dentist in Webster, TX, that can give you the option of having a dental crown crafted and placed in the same say is a great gift. Many dental practices require you to make multiple appointments where you’ll be fitted for the crown in the first visit and, weeks later, you’ll come in again and have the crown placed. Imagine the time that you’ll save yourself by having to come into the office for only one appointment!

Dr. Das is excited to offer CEREC same-day dental crowns and restorations. Instead of waiting several weeks for a crown, you can have stunning, permanent teeth in just a few hours. No temporaries and no waiting!

What is CEREC?

CEREC (CEramic REConstruction) is a system that features computer-aided design and an in-house milling machine that create restorations in just one visit. After preparing your teeth, your dentist will scan them and send the detailed images to the CEREC computer. Your dentist will then make a model of the permanent crown and send this model to the milling machine. The milling machine carves the custom crown out of a single block of porcelain.

The beauty of CEREC is that the crown is placed on the same day it is designed. Instead of a ceramist that makes the crown by hand, everything is computerized, from teeth impressions to crown milling. CEREC restorations are just as successful as traditional dental restorations. Our custom crowns fit perfectly, and are durable and natural-looking.

CEREC Crowns and Restorations

Dental crowns are caps that encase the entire tooth. They are often used to restore a tooth that is severely decayed or damaged. Crowns, inlays/onlays, and veneers are called “indirect” restorations because they are made in advance in the laboratory and placed later.

It usually takes multiple appointments and several weeks for teeth preparation, crown design, and placement. With CEREC, your dentist in Webster can design and create crowns and veneers in just one day, eliminating the wait.

It’s easy to care for crowned and restored teeth. Just brush and floss daily and visit your dentist for regular checkups.

High-Quality Porcelain Crowns

Someone may think that just because the crown is being created and placed in just one day that the crown will be of lower quality. The fact is that the crowns are of the highest quality porcelain and will be functional and beautiful once they are placed in your mouth. Having porcelain crowns will match the composition of your natural teeth in perhaps the closest way possible, which may cut down on sensitivity that you’ll experience when eating and drinking things that are hot or cold. Other types of crowns don’t look natural, and you may also have to deal with sensitivity when eating certain foods and drinking certain drinks.
