The crown of your tooth, the wide portion that rests above the gum line, is bombarded with acids, food and beverage particles, the pressure of your teeth meeting, and bacteria every single day. If any of these variables is allowed to linger, the crown can eventually become compromised to the point that it can’t be salvaged. If you’ve gotten to this point, then all hope isn’t lost. At our Houston dental office, Dr. Gray can restore your oral health by placing new dental crowns in Houston, TX. Contact us today to speak with one of our friendly staff members and schedule a visit!
Made from high-quality ceramics, a dental crown is a porcelain fixture that fits over your remaining tooth structure like a cap. It’s vital to your oral health in that it protects the more sensitive inner area of the tooth from being infiltrated by debris and bacteria. The crown is also essential for the proper function of your tooth, as it allows for greater chewing capacity. When you visit our Houston dental office, we’ll first complete any restorative work that may need to be done, and then we’ll provide you with a stable, durable, and aesthetically pleasing prosthetic.
The traditional process for receiving a dental crown involves your dentist in Houston performing any restorative care first and then capturing bite impressions that are sent to a lab that will create a new crown. While this has been the common method used by dentists for years, Dr. Gray offers a more convenient solution: CEREC same-day crowns.
Here, instead of waiting weeks for a final restoration, after any preliminary work is completed, we’ll capture digital images of your tooth, which will be sent to our state-of-the-art CAD system. With the data that Dr. Gray inputs, your new porcelain crown will be custom-designed and then sent to our in-office milling machine that will fabricate the new fixture. In just one visit, you’ll have a healthier and more appealing smile.
With our in-office creation of your same-day crown, the process can be completed in as little as an hour. Better yet, you won’t have to compromise on quality, deal with temporary fixtures, or spend more time away from your many other responsibilities. Here’s why more and more patients are choosing CEREC dental crowns in Houston:
