CEREC® One-Visit Crowns in Plano, Texas
When damage or decay reaches the point that a regular filling won't work, Dr. Blankenship, Dr. Pollard or Dr. Patel will likely suggest a crown. Usually made of porcelain or precious metal, crowns cover an injured tooth to strengthen the remaining structure. However, the traditional two or three appointments needed to have them created and placed can feel like a lifetime for struggling patients. Thankfully, our dentist uses state-of-the-art CEREC technology to generate attractive crowns, inlays, and onlays for our patients in just one hour-long appointment.Strong and reliable, CEREC restorations revitalize the health and appearance of your smile!

Please contact our Plano, TX practice today if you have any questions about CEREC, or if you’re ready to schedule an appointment for you or a loved one. We love seeing patients from all over the DFW area, including Richardson, Allen, and beyond.
The CEREC® Process
After our team has captured a precise 3D image of your affected tooth, our CEREC machine can mill a gorgeous, all-ceramic restoration that compliments it perfectly in about an hour. CEREC allows Dr. Blankenship, Dr. Pollard or Dr. Patel to customize the crown matching your natural color and shape as closely as possible. We take CEREC crowns to the next level with our in-office porcelain oven, which allows us to stain and glaze the crown so that it matches your tooth shade and looks extremely natural. Not all offices take this extra step of firing the porcelain crown, but it is a step worth taking because it adds a whopping 20% percent more strength to the restoration. Once your crown has been created, Dr. Blankenship, Dr. Pollard or Dr. Patel will permanently place the CEREC crown during the same visit.
Dr. Pollard and Dr. Patel have been using CEREC crown technology for their patients since 2006. These crowns are phenomenal in their strength and esthetics and have a documented success rate that surpasses gold restorations. Better yet, we won’t have to use messy impression materials or temporary crowns at any point during the process improving your comfort and convenience greatly. We know you’ll be amazed by the beautiful, lifelike results we create through CEREC!
