Crowns ... allow us to save a tooth that had a whole lot of fillings in the past. When it's cracking, by cap or crowning a tooth, you're protecting the entire tooth structure above the gumline. So when someone bites down on that tooth now, there's no way to crack the tooth. With bridges, we're able to replace teeth that had been missing due to extraction, and it's a more permanent solution. So once it's in, the patient can treat that bridge as if it's their own teeth. I have a technology called CEREC, and it's been around for 25 years. What it is, it's a camera in a milling unit, which combined together allow me to take pictures of the patient's teeth. The camera knows what the patient's teeth look like, the camera knows what the opposing teeth look like, and it can use that information and design a crown that fits perfectly on the tooth that I just prepped. It also makes the bite area just right so that when the patient bites down, the teeth are meeting as they should. This allows the patient to leave with a permanent crown, no temporary, no coming back in two weeks to get the permanent one cemented in. It's a win-win for everybody.

What Is CEREC?
CEREC is a true game changer in the field of restorative dentistry. CEREC is short for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. Basically, that means that instead of sending our dental crowns out to a lab to be created (a two-week process at least), we can create a fully custom, permanent ceramic crown for you while you wait in our office. Instead of two weeks, now your wait is down to a few hours.
Same-Day Crowns Can Fix a Lot
Dental crowns are usually the preferred fix for many different dental problems, including:
- Cracked Teeth
- Broken Teeth
- Teeth Treated with Root Canals
- Tooth Decay
- Dental Stains
Benefits of CEREC
- Appearance – CEREC crowns are able to effectively correct problems like cracks and dental stains. This immediately improves the look of your teeth and leaves you with a natural-looking smile the same day you come into our office.
- Speed – Lab-created dental crowns take weeks to come back, and sometimes they don’t fit right when you get them. At Johnson Dental Care, you get the dental crown you need while you wait, and if there is any issue with the fit, you can get it fixed immediately.
- Security – A temporary crown, which you would need to wear while waiting for a lab-created crown, can break or fall out. A same-day crown from Johnson Dental Care will stay put, helping you eat what you want and keeping your tooth safe from further damage.
What Are Precision-Fit Dental Bridges?
If you have lost a tooth or need a tooth removed, a dental bridge is a great option for filling that void. Our precision-fit dental bridges use dental crowns to anchor your new bridge inside your smile.
