Dr. Langston strives to practice metal-free dentistry for its benefits for your oral health, function, and appearance. Holistic dentistry is all about taking steps to integrate your oral health plan into a great overall health plan for optimal systemic health, and using biocompatible materials for dental restorations is part of this program. That’s why we offer CEREC one-visit dental crowns at our Sunnyvale, TX dental office.
How are we able to take impressions, create crowns, and place them in a single visit? CEREC one-visit crowns rely on CAD/CAM technology, which allows us to create these dental restorations in the office while you wait. CEREC one-visit crowns offer many advantages over traditional metal crowns, including:
CEREC one-visit crowns offer a conservative option for dental crowns and require less modification to the remaining healthy tooth structure. As a holistic dentist, Dr. Langston prefers to go with conservative treatment options whenever possible, believing that maintaining existing healthy structures leads to maximum stability and strength.
A computer takes extremely precise digital “impressions'' of your tooth, sends this information to an in-house milling unit, and the milling unit turns a block of porcelain into a crown using the information. Because the crown is designed with computer technology, this leads to better accuracy for an improved post-placement fit. And, of course, all-porcelain crowns are preferred over metal crowns for their aesthetics. With CEREC one-visit crowns, you get a great look and a great fit in a convenient time frame.
