Enjoy same-day dentistry and crowns provided by Walden Dental

There are times when teeth become damaged or worn down. Gradual wear and tear, cavity formation, dislodged fillings, or cracked teeth may leave you with acute pain or consistent nagging discomfort while chewing or enjoying an ice-cold beverage. Whatever the cause, you may be in need of a dental crown. At Walden Dental in Austin, Texas, patients benefit from ceramic dental restorations like dental crowns that are part of our one-visit dentistry solutions to avoid further complications, pain, or potential loss of teeth.  You can also rest assured that all our crowns are metal-free and made right in front of your eyes.  You’ll no longer have to worry about black lines around your gums or metal allergies/sensitivities following dental treatment.

What are dental crowns?

Dental crowns are “caps” made of ceramic and are designed as a shell of enamel-like color and strength to replace lost tooth structure or reinforce a weakened tooth from cracks or cavities. Dental crowns are a standard dental restoration used in many practices, but not all dentists provide same-day CEREC crowns.

CEREC involves using CAD/CAM software and 3D digital imaging to create a restoration that can be milled from porcelain right in the dental practice while patients wait. It eliminates messy molds, gagging on goop, and long wait times associated with traditional methods when dentists will send impressions to outside laboratories to fabricate a crown 3-4 weeks later. Instead of waiting weeks, patients can wait 15-20 minutes in the office for the same-day placement of their dental restorations.

Same Day Crowns at Walden Dental

Same-Day Crowns

Dr. Frank – Hey it’s Doctor Frank at Walden Dental. For adults of all ages crowns are very common. So I want to tell you four ways crowns can benefit you and your teeth. First, crowns allow us to save the original tooth. We want to ensure you stay away from avoidable root canals or even worse, a dreaded extraction. We craft the crown perfectly to fit your smile so it’ll look and feel completely natural. Second, a crown can cosmetically restore your smile. No matter if your teeth are chipped, cracked, or developed cavities under your older fillings, our crowns can fix all these concerns. And no need to worry about those unsightly black lines along your gums or mismatched tooth colors that scream, “Hey, you’ve got a false tooth”, because all our materials are metal free.

Patient – So, I came to Walden Dental after one of my teeth was chipped, it was a front tooth that had been bonded previously several times and never looked very good, it was always a different color. And Walden Dental was able to make a crown that matched perfectly to my other teeth so I can just tell a huge difference in my photos and how happy I am to have a normal looking tooth.

Dr. Frank – Third, time. We know you’re busy and we’ve mastered our CEREC 3D technology. This means you no longer have to wear a temporary and you are able to walk out with a permanent tooth in as little as sixty minutes. You can even see your new crown being made right in front of you and the results are indistinguishable from a natural tooth. Four, our crowns are crafted to last for years to come. We offer several different enamel like materials that will suit your needs and budget. We stand behind the quality of our work and want to offer our patients peace of mind.

What are same-day crowns?

Crowns that are designed, milled, and fitted in a day using advanced computer technologies, unlike traditional crowns that may take at least two visits to the dentist and several weeks for completion. The whole procedure is performed in-house, whereas traditional crowns are usually milled in an outside lab.

What is CEREC?

CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) is a technology that enables same-day crowns and other dental restorations.

What are the benefits of same-day crowns?

They offer all the benefits of traditional crowns, while eliminating the need to visit the dentist multiple times. This saves time, expenses, and the need to take time off work or school.
