CEREC same day crown in Pasadena Texas

CEREC Pasadena Texas DentistPasadena, Texas Dentist Dr. Nugent has invested int he best technology for his patients and practice. CEREC is an amazing technology that allows Dr. Nugent to start and complete a crown all in one visit!


The CEREC technology was developed at Zurich University and has been successfully used in dental practices around the world since 1985. Long term clinical studies show that CEREC crowns are equivalent (if not better) then laboratory made crowns.

CEREC Treatment:

  1. No gagging, gooey, foul tasting impressions in your mouth for six minutes! The CEREC uses a 3D measuring camera to scan the prepared tooth, opposite teeth and your bite. This eliminates the unpleasant impression.
  2. No temporary crowns! You don’t have to walk around with a plastic temporary tooth for two weeks. You don’t have to come back for a second appointment to put on your laboratory crown. No more emergency visits to the dentist because you broke your plastic temporary.
  3. No long waiting periods! Laboratory made crowns can take between two to three weeks to be made and returned to the office. With CEREC you are finished the same day with a beautiful porcelain restoration that is extremely durable.

Complete dentistry in one day is now possible in Pasadena, Texas thanks to CEREC technology.

The technology used in dentistry is constantly evolving. These developments enable dentists to provide patients with the most effective care. At our Pasadena, Texas dental office, CEREC crowns are available. This treatment enables our patients to receive crowns with a natural appearance in one visit.

CEREC crowns are crowns created using sophisticated dental technology that shortens the duration of treatment.

Digital technology allows us to obtain digital scans. Utilizing a digital scan makes the procedure precise, rapid, and significantly more comfortable for the patient.

Following the completion of the design, your Dr. Nugent will fabricate your tooth crown in a milling unit using dental material that appears natural. Additionally, fillings and veneers can be fabricated in this facility. This expedites the procedure, allowing you to receive your permanent crown on the same day.

This newer technology affords CEREC dental crowns greater advantages than their conventional counterparts. These consist of:

  • CEREC crowns possess a more natural appearance.
  • Instead of being a single hue, these crowns are customizable.
  • CEREC crowns are constructed precisely, resulting in a snug fit.
  • Crown impressions and fabrication can occur on the same day.
  • CEREC crowns are made of stronger materials, allowing you to enjoy any meal with confidence.
  • With conventional crowns, your teeth and gums may experience sensitivity for a few weeks, but not with CEREC crowns.
