San Antonio Dental Crown Expertise
Dental crowns are used in a number of dental procedures. From protection to repair, tooth crowns are an effective way to restore your smile and keep your mouth healthy.
Dental crowns form a protective layer around your tooth to protect teeth that are weak, cracked, or otherwise in danger of breaking. If a tooth has already broken, has a large filling, or is naturally misshapen or discolored, a dental crown can also be used to fill and fix—even for only cosmetic issues. Tooth crowns are also used with dental bridges and dental implants to form and support other teeth in the mouth.
At Jurich Dental we offer patients a dental crown procedure that is more comfortable and less time consuming by using the CEREC method.
Benefits of Porcelain Dental Crowns
- A Natural Looking Smile | Porcelain gives a translucent effect similar to your teeth, allowing the dental crown to blend with the rest of your smile
- A Strong, Long-Lasting Solution | Porcelain crowns also have the added benefit of being very strong. These crowns last 10–15 years on average.
CEREC Same-Day Crowns
Traditional porcelain dental crowns take multiple office visits. A tooth impression is taken so a dental lab can make the permanent porcelain dental crown while you wait a few weeks with a temporary crown.
San Antonio dentist Dr. Stewart prefers using the CEREC method over the old-fashioned way because his patients love it! Using the CEREC method of creating porcelain crowns allows us to provide the same outcome in a fraction of the time.
CEREC crowns are done completely in-office, allowing your complete procedure to be done on the spot while reducing discomfort. CEREC crowns are beautiful and reduce the number of visits you have to make to our San Antonio office!
IF DAVID LETTERMAN HAD BEEN DR. STEWART’S PATIENT, THE DENTAL CROWN PROCEDURE WOULD HAVE BEEN DONE IN ONE SITTING! It would have been worth the plane trip to our San Antonio office.
The procedure for receiving CEREC crowns is straightforward. An infrared camera takes images of your damaged tooth, sending them directly to the CEREC machine, creating 3D images of your teeth. Your CEREC crowns are then milled inside the machine right there in our office in San Antonio, providing Dr. Jurich and Dr. Stewart with the ability to complete your procedure that same day. No annoying impression trays, no waiting for a lab somewhere else, and no uncomfortable temporary crown!
