CEREC One-Visit Crowns

When a tooth is weakened by decay, trauma or cracks due to large, old fillings, a crown may be suggested as the best long-term solution for your tooth. A crown provides strength to a tooth by encasing the entire structure above the gumline, much like a helmet. Dental crowns absorb the force from chewing and may prolong the life of your tooth for decades, or even a lifetime.

At Beale & Cullen Dental, we have been using CEREC technology to create crowns in one visit for well over a decade, constantly keeping up to date with the amazing hardware and software developments. 

CEREC crowns eliminate the need for multiple dental appointments to complete your treatment. We use digital impressions rather than gooey impression paste to determine the size and shape of your crown. Once uploaded into our software, our in-house milling machine, which is like a small robot, will mill your crown out of a single piece of durable and aesthetic ceramic.

You will leave our dental clinic on the same day with a brand new tooth that matches the rest of your smile perfectly. Our patients love this convenient way to complete their dental crowns.
