Technology has improved dental care in a variety of ways. With dental implants, for instance, we can provide you with strong and sturdy tooth replacement. With digital X-rays, we can improve your overall experience in the dental office and keep better track of your health. With a CEREC crown in Castle Rock, we can design and craft your custom-made porcelain crowns, inlays, and onlays right here in our nearby dental office, performing the entire restorative process in a single visit. When your smile has been damaged and you need a crown, inlay, or onlay, consider CEREC one-visit crowns from Cowlitz River Dental.

What is a CEREC Crown?

A CEREC crown is also referred to as a same-day dental crown in Castle Rock. Crafted in a single visit using CAD/CAM software and CEREC technology, an in-house milling unit fabricates your customized crown while you wait. Instead of being faced with multiple dental appointments and a temporary crown, you can receive a fully repaired and restored smile the same day you arrive for treatment. 

How Does CEREC Work?

Our office can use CEREC one-visit crowns technology to create beautiful porcelain dental restorations, making this a popular choice for patients needing crowns. For decades, it’s taken a minimum of two visits to complete the process of creating and placing porcelain crowns. The computerized CEREC technology creates a 3D image of the tooth to be restored, and this image is used to design your crown. Once the design is complete, the CEREC milling unit shapes a block of porcelain into your crown. We then place the crown, and in just about 90 minutes, your CEREC one-visit crown procedure is all done!

The CEREC one-visit crowns have been shown to provide phenomenal strength and excellent aesthetic results.

Am I a Candidate?

There is a good chance Dr. Kennington will recommend you for a CEREC crown if:

  • Your natural tooth is strong enough to support a crown
  • The decay and/or damage to your tooth is severe enough that it warrants a CEREC crown for adequate protection
  • You have a tooth that is severely stained or discolored

It is important, however, that you have no other dental problems present, as you will likely need to have them addressed before moving forward with CEREC crowns. Dr. Kennington will perform a thorough evaluation of your smile before recommending any particular treatment.

Most people will require a dental restoration of some kind during their lifetimes. Few people manage to maintain perfect, damage-free smiles forever. There’s no need to worry, though, if you’ve broken a tooth or have extensive decay. With restorative dentistry procedures like CEREC one-visit crowns, Cowlitz River Dental can help.
