Same-Day Smile Repairs

Don’t waste your time with a series of scheduled dental appointments to resolve a chipped, cracked, or missing tooth. CEREC, a state-of-the-art milling technology, allows our patients to leave with a permanent dental crown on the same day as their visit. If you have damaged teeth, you are aware of how uncomfortable chewing and speaking can be. Decaying teeth often lead to sensitivity and irritation that only increase with time. If your tooth’s roots and interior are healthy then the tooth is likely worth saving. A dental crown or bridge provides an upgraded exterior that can make teeth stronger and restore function. Our team has many years of cosmetic dentistry experience including education specifically for CEREC technology. Dr. Benjamin Wang provides custom, premium quality, and same-day dental crowns in Portland, OR.

At Centerport Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry our dentist and dental team are skilled in CEREC-assisted restorative treatments. We can streamline the dental process and restore tooth function within a single visit thanks to experience and CEREC technology. The restoration is made from ceramic or porcelain materials designed to perfectly blend with your natural teeth and withstand daily wear. CEREC crowns are designed with a patient’s skin tone and facial structure in mind for a natural look.  If you require an extraction or if you are visiting because of a missing tooth, Dr. Wang can offer a dental bridge to restore your smile. Once your crown is placed, Dr. Wang will examine your bite to ensure proper alignment, making adjustments if necessary.

Candidates for Same-Day Dentistry

Dental crowns are permanently placed over an existing tooth to restore function and appearance. Tooth crowns are often the best option when a tooth is too damaged to be treated with a standard filling, or for a tooth after root canal therapy. Dental crowns can also be used to restore esthetics after implant surgery.
