Stunning Results in a Single Visit
with Advanced CEREC Technology
Same-day crowns blend in beautifully with your smile and maintain the natural alignment of your bite. With this efficient treatment, you can enjoy restored dental function and an enhanced sense of self-confidence faster than ever before.
CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) technology uses digital impressions and computer-guided milling tools to perform work that would normally take a technician two weeks or longer to complete. In a single office visit to our Albuquerque, NM, office, a quick scan of your tooth will direct ultra-articulate hardware in crafting a cap that achieves a precise fit with your smile.

Why choose a dentist who crafts his own crowns rather than just using a lab?
Same-day Crowns Offer Several Benefits over Traditional Crowns
Because traditional crowns are made at a dental lab, it can take several weeks to receive your final restoration. Same-day crowns can speed up your treatment timeline and spare you the hassle of returning to our office for a second appointment.
No Temporary Crown
Immediately after treatment, your smile will look great, feel comfortable, and function properly. Rather than having a temporary restoration and fitting a second visit into your busy life, you can leave the office ready to resume your normal schedule.
Preservation of Oral Health
CEREC® crowns can also protect your overall dental health. These restorations will be tailor-made using highly precise measurements. Once placed, the caps support the tooth so it can withstand the daily pressures of biting and chewing.
Reduced Pressure on the Jaw
Dr. Wall can make minute adjustments to even out the force along your dental arch. As an expert in neuromuscular dentistry, he can prevent undue pressure on your jaw and reduce your risk for TMJ disorder. This can improve your oral comfort.
CEREC® crowns are durable and natural-looking. The system uses medical-grade porcelain that has a natural sheen and sparkle. You will be in the office during the design process, so Dr. Wall can match the color of the porcelain to your natural teeth.

Before and After Photos
How Are Crowns Used in Dental Bridge Treatment?
Support for Dental Bridge
Crowns are used in conjunction with a traditional dental bridge to replace missing teeth. In this treatment approach, crowns are placed on the adjacent teeth to hold the dental bridge in place.
Alternative to a Dental Bridge
As an alternative to a dental bridge, a single dental crown can be attached to a dental implant to replace a single missing tooth. This option is more expensive, but is better for your oral health.
Three Factors that Affect the Cost of Dental Crowns
Quality of Materials Chosen
There are many types of porcelain available, and more aesthetic, durable options will typically cost more than others.
Number of Teeth Treated
While some patients only need one dental crown to restore their smile, those with more extensive issues will need more extensive treatment.
If you have outstanding oral health issues like gum disease, you will need dental care to ensure your restoration has a stable foundation, which increases the final cost.
I need a dental crown, but how will I pay for it?
