One dentist appointment, big results, no temporaries!
Dental crowns are tooth shaped caps that are placed to help patients who have a severely damaged or decayed tooth. If the tooth cannot be repaired with a traditional filling, a crown may be placed to restore the tooth to function and make it look like nothing ever happened. Traditionally, dental crown placement required multiple appointments for the patient. However, your Midlothian, Virginia dental team doesn’t want you to go through the multiple-dental appointment hassle. That is why we offer CEREC single-visit crowns—one appointment, big results, no temporaries!
Do I need a crown?
If you are in pain due to a cracked, broken, or decayed tooth, Dr. Hawkins may need to place a crown to protect the remaining healthy tooth as well as fortify the tooth so you can bite normally.
CEREC single-visit crowns are revolutionary
The CEREC CAD/CAM technology allows your doctors to do more in one sitting than many dentists can do in multiple appointments. We know your time is valuable, and CEREC single-visit crowns can get you in and out and back to living your life after one appointment.
In a single appointment we will take digital impressions of the area to be restored. Then, the porcelain milling machine will fabricate your crown as you read through your favorite magazine or get caught up on email. When your in-office crown is complete, it will be placed and you will be on your way.
Why CEREC single-visit crowns save you time
Because everything can happen in office, there is no need for multiple appointments or a bulky temporary restoration.
You can walk out of your appointment with a porcelain crown and get back to living your life with minimal inconvenience. CEREC single-visit crowns are an excellent option as they offer:
- No sticky impressions
- No metal
- No temporary restoration period
- Natural looking, durable porcelain
- Minimally invasive procedure
- Single-visit dental treatment
Porcelain crowns look so much like your natural tooth, no one will know it is a restoration.
Dental crowns are more than a cosmetic repair; crowns protect the damaged teeth from further complications, as they are strong enough to endure regular eating and drinking.
