Versatility Meets Fast Results

Here at Sycamore Hills Dentistry, we provide advanced dental solutions for restoring and enhancing your smile. We offer dental crowns and bridges to address various dental issues efficiently. Dental crowns, or “tooth caps,” fully cover and restore damaged or weakened teeth with durable ceramic or porcelain materials.

Dental bridges, made by fusing crowns to a false tooth (pontic), effectively fill the gaps caused by missing teeth, anchored securely by adjacent natural teeth. Our experienced team ensures that these restorations seamlessly blend with your natural teeth, promoting better dental health and aesthetics. With our state-of-the-art technology, we can deliver these beautiful restorations immediately, allowing you to enjoy a full smile without delay!

What Are CEREC Same-Day
Crowns and Dental Bridges?

In the past, one of the major roadblocks to restoring your teeth with crowns and bridges was the waiting. Your dentist would prepare your teeth, make models, send those models to the lab, and then it could take up to a few weeks to get your final restorations back. In the meantime, you were left wearing uncomfortable temporary teeth that couldn’t stand up to your normal diet.

With Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics (CEREC), receiving crowns and dental bridges has never been easier! This cutting-edge approach to dental crowns and bridges enables us to fully restore your smile with CEREC crowns and bridges in a single visit. Although it’s not a perfect fit for every treatment need, CEREC lets most patients enjoy renewed esthetics and function without the wait.

  • Improve overall oral health
  • Provide long-lasting strength and stability to compromised teeth

Your Crown and Bridge Process


Dental Health Exam and Consultation

As with every treatment at Sycamore Hills Dentistry, we’ll start your process with a consultation and comprehensive dental health exam. We’ll collect thorough digital diagnostics and thoroughly review your medical and dental history. Most importantly, we’ll take time to get to know each other.

We want to understand how your dental health affects your day-to-day life and what goals you have for how dental treatment may help. We don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to dentistry. You’ll get a completely customized treatment plan that addresses all your concerns, and we’ll discuss what options best suit your needs, lifestyle, and budget. When you’re ready, we can start restoring your smile!


Crafting and Placing Your New Restorations

Crowns completely cover your natural tooth. To make room for the added material, we’ll first adjust the outer layer of enamel while treating any damaged or decayed areas. Sometimes, we may add medications to soothe aggravated nerves or help stabilize your tooth. We can also provide the right dental sedation and pain control to ensure your experience is comfortable and relaxed throughout.

We’ll craft your custom restorations with consideration for your smile shape, lip line, skin tone, facial contours, and various other esthetic factors to ensure a beautiful final result that complements your unique smile. With CEREC and our state-of-the-art dental lab on the premises, we’ll fabricate your custom dental crowns and bridges while you wait. That helps us control costs while ensuring every restoration lives up to our standards. It also allows us to adjust our approach so you can get back to living life to the fullest without missing teeth or dental pain!


Fine Tuning Your New Crowns

With CEREC same-day crowns, we can place your final restorations right away. In rare cases, we may recommend wearing temporary restorations for many reasons, such as giving your bite a chance to adjust if we’re rebuilding your bite. Once your final restorations are in place, we’ll ensure your bite is as perfect as possible.

It’s common to need a little fine-tuning as your teeth adjust to your new restorations; in this case, we can make further adjustments as needed! To ensure your smile stays healthy and beautiful for as long as possible, we’ll help you maintain your crowns and bridges with thorough instructions for routine home care cleanings and dental health check-ups. We look forward to becoming your partners in lasting dental health!
