Forget the Temps: Our Advanced CEREC® Technology Delivers Same-Day Crowns

Dental crowns replace a missing or chipped tooth. With over 178 million Americans missing at least one tooth, there's a high need for crowns. 

In most cases, a dentist takes a mold of your tooth and sends it to a lab to be fabricated. A temporary crown is then used while the permanent one is constructed. This requires multiple dental visits and extends the time it takes to complete the procedure.

At Veal Dental Care, Dr. Scott Veal uses an advanced technology called CEREC® technology that eliminates the need for a temporary crown. You can walk out of his office with a permanent crown the same day.

Why you may need a crown

As we get older, our teeth become worn and damaged. This could be the result of time, decay, or another dental incident. Either way, sometimes a crown might be your only solution. 

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped "cap" that fills in a missing tooth or covers a damaged, chipped or missing tooth. A crown helps to restore the tooth to its former shape, size and strength. Plus, it improves the color and appearance of the tooth. It's one of the most common restorative dental procedures performed every year.

There are many reasons why you may need a crown. They include:

How same-day CEREC technology works

The first step to getting any type of crown is a thorough dental examination. After Dr. Veal performs this type of examination, he can help you determine if CEREC technology is the right option for your dental needs. CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics.

The procedure is simple, quick, and painless. Dr. Veal takes a computerized scan of your teeth. He then uses that scan to design and fabricate a crown with the help of advanced computer-aided design technology. The result is a crown that's the perfect size and shape for your mouth. The crown is then polished and bonded to your tooth that same day. 

You get to walk out of the office with a new crown, a better smile, and improved dental health.
