Dental crowns are one of most versatile ways to improve your smile. Crowns can hold a bridge in place or can cover a tooth that has been severely damaged or has undergone root canal therapy. However, one of the drawbacks of crowns is that impressions of your teeth need to be sent to a dental lab for the crown to be made. This means you need to wear a temporary crown during that time. However, at Mill Point Dental, we use CEREC technology in Bend, Oregon. After we take digital impressions of your teeth, our dentists, Dr. Michael Longlet and Dr. Eric Alston, can create your custom crown while you wait, eliminating the need for a temporary crown.

Our dentist and dental team work hard to stay current on the latest advances in dental technology and techniques. We utilize state-of-the-art dental equipment, including CEREC one-visit restoration technology, to help us provide you with the best possible dental care and experience. CEREC technology allows our team to provide you with a custom-made, high-quality dental restoration in a single visit to our office. Traditional dental techniques require at least two visits to complete many dental restorations; CEREC technology saves you time and discomfort by eliminating the need for a second visit.
With CEREC technology, we can create many types of dental restorations in just one visit, including:
- Dental crowns
- Dental veneers
- Dental inlays and onlays
With CEREC one-visit restorations, you will have no need for uncomfortable temporary crowns, veneers or other restorations. In addition, CEREC uses advanced scanning technology to design the restoration, eliminating the need for messy impressions. CEREC one-visit restorations are created from high-quality porcelain that is matched to your individual tooth color, so your restorations will look beautiful and natural for years to come. For more information on the advantages of CEREC one-visit restorations and our other advanced technology, we welcome you to call or visit us today.
