One Visit Dental Crowns
It’s not uncommon for patients at a family dentist to have to come in again and again even for the more simple restorative treatments. While millions of Americans every year encounter problems with tooth loss or tooth decay and struggle to find local dental care that works for their specific lifestyle needs. At Highland Dental Health our CEREC CAD/CAM dental crown and dental veneer technology comes complete with 4D imaging software and an in-house milling unit to deliver highly personalized and custom dental crowns in one same-day appointment.

Do I Need a Dental Crown?
Dental crowns are one of the most common restorations in cosmetic dentistry services. After decay, age or a dental accident have affected the healthy structure of a tooth a dental crown can extend the life of a tooth in a number of ways:
seal a large portion of the tooth after a root canal
cover permanent staining or discoloration
protect a weakened tooth after damage, decay or an accident
repair a broken, fractured, chipped or damaged tooth
replace a missing tooth with a dental implant
improve the appearance of a misshapen or irregular tooth
Dental Crowns With Dr. Garrison
At your appointment Dr. Garrison carefully examines your teeth to determine if you may need a dental crown or “cap.” Once the process begins anesthetic can be applied if necessary to numb the affected area while the tooth is prepared for placement of the dental crown. Dr. Garrison and a dental assistant will take pictures of your teeth to thoroughly examine your current dental condition and structure of the affected tooth or teeth.
From these comprehensive images, CAD/CAM software builds a detailed model of the new tooth or teeth. This design is carefully milled from a block of strong, durable porcelain that looks and feels much like the composition of a healthy adult tooth. After the replacement tooth is fitted and small adjustments are made, the crown is placed in an oven to finish the crystallization process of the porcelain material and then bond the restoration to the tooth. After final adjustments are made the entire process may take less than 2 hours and result in a strong, natural looking smile in just one visit.
