Receiving A Crown In Just One Appointment

A dental crown can be prepared for you in less time than you might think possible when you come to our Redmond, OR dentist’s office for support. Our practice shortens treatment times for patients by using crowns that are produced with CEREC technology. This technology lets us take on every step of designing and creating the crown in-house, which cuts down on time and removes the need to rely on a third party lab for your custom restoration. We should note that our office is also here to help you when you have no oral health issues to worry over – by scheduling preventive exams, you lower your risk for problems that are serious enough to require dental crowns.

We Can Reduce The Time It Takes To Restore Your Unhealthy Tooth

If you know that something is wrong with your oral health, you can welcome the news that treatment will take less time than you anticipate. At other locations, patients are asked to depend on temporary crowns while they wait to complete restorative work for teeth that are affected by decay or physical damage. This can feel awkward, and it can be aggravating to know that you are stuck with a less than ideal form of protection for a period of time. With our CEREC technology, we can help you avoid this frustration and move on with life after your tooth is treated!

Receiving Your Custom, Same-Day Crown

At our practice, we can use technology to fully design and produce a crown that will be ready to cover your tooth in just one appointment. First, we will gather digital measurements of the tooth being treated, which we then use to create a design of the crown. After it is ready, we use an in-office milling machine to create a restoration made from ceramic. In addition to being the right shape and size, we can make sure that your crown is the right color to fit in with your smile!

Regular Checkups Help You Prevent Problems With Your Oral Health

At every routine dental exam, your dentist will give your smile a close review. As these evaluations occur, we can look out for smaller cavities that do not yet require dental crowns. What we can do instead is restore them with fillings. This is also something that we can do in just one appointment. However, a filling is a more conservative treatment option, one that only covers the area where a cavity had formed.
