CEREC Same-Day Dental Crowns – Fort Worth, TX

A Faster Way to a Fully Restored Smile

If you’ve had a dental crown in the past, you may remember that it took quite a long time to complete the restoration process.

First, your tooth had to be prepared during a long visit with your dentist, and then you left wearing a temporary crown until your permanent crown was made at a dental lab. If you had no problems with your temporary crown breaking or falling out, your next appointment was about two or three weeks later to have your new crown placed. Many patients found that all of this time could be challenging to fit into a hectic schedule.

Our knowledgeable Fort Worth dentist is happy to let you know that those days are over! With CEREC technology, same-day dental crowns in Fort Worth, TX, are now possible, which means that you’ll leave our office with your tooth fully restored and functioning with a beautiful crown that complements your smile.

When Do I Need a Dental Crown?

If you have a tooth that has been traumatized, infected, or damaged by decay, you may need a crown to restore its entire structure. A crown fits over your remaining tooth like a cap, which protects your natural root and provides all the functions of eating and chewing you were used to. Since a crown is made of ceramic porcelain, it is tooth-colored and can be customized to blend flawlessly with your smile.

What Is CEREC?

CEREC is CAD/CAM technology that scans a picture of your tooth, generates a 3D image, and mills a porcelain crown exactly to Dr. McIntosh’s specifications in our Fort Worth dental office while you wait. The entire process takes around an hour or so and creates a high-quality restoration that you’ll be able to rely on for many years.

CEREC is also ideal for creating other restorations like inlays, onlays, or veneers.

What Are the Benefits of CEREC Same-Day Dental Crowns?

Besides the most important timesaving benefit that CEREC offers, this innovative technology also provides several other advantages for our patients. CEREC’s 3D imaging eliminates the need for messy and uncomfortable impressions of your teeth that had to be taken in the past.

CEREC also provides a clearer image for Dr. McIntosh to design your restoration with, which means more precision during milling and a better-fitting crown for you.

Restorations with CEREC are also ideal for patients experiencing a dental emergency who need to restore a damaged or broken tooth quickly. Same-day restorations can give you back your smile and provide the relief you need in an emergency.
