You’ve been down this road before and you really don’t have the time to fit a crown into your busy schedule. The last time you had it done it took 4 weeks to complete. Dr. James Gray has incredible news for you. CEREC in Arlington allows us to deliver an aesthetically pleasing and fully functioning dental crown during one appointment at our office!

What is a Crown and why do I Need One?

A dental crown is designed to replace your entire tooth structure when it sustains more damage than a dental filling can repair such as a fracture, trauma, decay or infection. A crown is made of high quality porcelain and closely mimics your tooth in both form and aesthetics. You’ll be able to chew and eat your food normally, and smile with confidence with your new crown.

How Does CEREC Streamline the Process?

In the past, a crown appointment required two long visits to complete your restoration. You would also have to wait 2-4 weeks for your crown to be fabricated at the dental laboratory. If there were any problems with your temporary crown breaking or falling off during that time, you may have additional appointments to repair your temporary crown. This process was frustrating for busy patients to fit into their schedules.

CEREC technology allows us to design and fabricate your crown in one short appointment. CEREC scans a 3D image directly to our milling machine located in our office, which makes your crown while you wait. 3D imaging eliminates the messy and uncomfortable impressions we took of your teeth in the past, so your crown today is designed with more precision and accuracy, and the process is much more comfortable for our patients.

The Benefits of CEREC

CEREC not only speeds up a process that used to take weeks to complete, it also delivers a high quality, aesthetically pleasing restoration that you can rely on for many years. Dr. Gray is committed to making our patient’s experience more efficient and comfortable, and CEREC helps us do this.
