CEREC Crowns

Do you have a damaged tooth, or suspect you may have an infected tooth which needs a crown? If so, come to Smiles for Life Family Dentistry and see a dentist in Spring Valley. We’re the best choice for same day dental crowns in Las Vegas.

Dr. John Quinn and Dr. Michael Mitchell use advanced CEREC technology to create and apply dental crowns in just a single appointment. If you need a Spring Valley dental crown, we are here to help.

What Is A CEREC Crown?

A CEREC crown is built using advanced CEREC (CEramic REConstruction) technology. CEREC machines are “chair-side” CAD/CAM machines which can manufacture dental crowns, inlays and onlays, and even veneers in just a few minutes.

Traditional crowns are manufactured at an outside, third-party laboratory. This means that it may take a few weeks for a crown to be delivered to a dentist. If you urgently need a dental crown in Rhodes Ranch, waiting may be painful and inconvenient.

CEREC crowns, on the other hand, can be manufactured and placed during a single appointment. No follow-ups and no waiting required.

What Is The CEREC Crown Placement Process Like?

Although the timeline is faster, the process of getting a CEREC crown is similar to that of a traditional crown.

First, Dr. Quinn or Dr. Mitchell will examine your mouth to determine if a crown is right for you. If it is the proper treatment, they will clean your teeth, and anesthetize your mouth to prepare you for the procedure.

Next, the tooth will be prepared. The doctor will use a dental drill to remove enamel, providing a stable, solid platform for the new dental crown to rest.

After this, digital impressions will be taken of the tooth and mouth. This information is sent to the CEREC machine, where the doctor will fine-tune the restoration to ensure it is properly colored and shaped. Then, the CEREC machine will begin creating the dental prosthesis, which takes only a few minutes.

Once the crown is completed, the doctor will check it for fit and quality. Once it’s perfect, he will bond it in place with a strong dental adhesive, and the procedure is complete.

The entire process takes 1-2 hours, and does not require a follow-up, though patients should get in touch with Smiles for Life if they experience any complications with crown placement.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are the very best solution to replace one or more teeth. The only thing better would be a natural tooth. Dental implants are made of titanium but restored with a porcelain crown designed to look like natural teeth while also providing a great deal of strength and chewing capability. At Smiles for Life, we take extra measures to ensure not only your comfort, but the absolute highest success rate possible for our surgical procedures. We also employ CT imaging in our office which will tell us ahead of time exactly what size implant you’re able to tolerate and whether or not you have any unseen complications, thus lowering your surgical risk tremendously. Many more patients are able to receive dental implants thanks to our CT technology. Call today to see if you’re a candidate.


CEREC Crowns

We utilize the CEREC same-day crown technology in our office. This amazing technology allows us to use a 3D camera to scan your teeth instead of taking a messy impression. Then, take that scan and create your all porcelain crown while you wait! There are no more painful temporaries or second visits to get numb again. Whether you’re here on vacation, have a limited schedule, lack transportation or just simply don’t want to keep coming in, you’ve found the right office!


Invisalign / Clear Correct

At Smiles for Life we offer a multitude of cosmetic options for our patients including clear aligners. With these clear retainers, you no longer have to worry about the stigma and poor esthetics of metal braces. Clear aligner braces include a series of clear plastic aligners that are virtually invisible and completely removable. You can eat what you want, drink what you want, and brush and floss more thoroughly to keep your dental health in optimal condition. Schedule a consultation today!
