Dr. Paul Burns is a certified dental professional offering a wide variety of dental restorations for patients in the El Dorado, AR area. If you have chipped, cracked, or fractured teeth, he will work closely with you to understand your goals and how he might help.
A dental crown is a popular dental restoration, a natural-looking “cap” that replaces compromised segments of a tooth, restoring the function and feel of your smile.
CEREC crowns are a state-of-the-art revolution in dental crowns, offering durable, reliable restorations in a single visit.
What to Expect from CEREC Crowns
Most crowns require at least two visits to place, with several weeks between the first and final visit. CEREC crowns, however, can be installed in a single visit, restoring your smile quickly and effectively, without the need for temporary crowns.
The placement process begins with a conversation and an examination. Once you and Dr. Burns have discussed all the options, as well as the benefits of CEREC crowns, you will determine if this popular restoration is right for you. If so, Dr. Burns will prepare your tooth, removing any damaged or compromised areas. He will then use CAD (computer-assisted design) imaging to review the layout of your mouth, coming to a full understanding of what needs to be restored and how.
He will use those digital images to design and manufacture your crown right there on the spot while you wait. Afterward, he will use a special dental bond to adhere your crown to the problem area, effectively restoring your smile. CEREC crowns have the look and feel of natural teeth and often go unnoticed by the naked eye.
Not every dentist’s office offers CEREC crowns, so patients living in or near El Dorado are in luck. At W Paul Burns DDS, we specialize in placing CEREC crowns for a wide range of dental issues.
