Why should I choose dental crowns?

If your teeth are suffering from severe damage and decay, you can protect and restore them with dental crowns. Dental crowns are tooth-shaped “caps” that are placed over a damaged tooth in order to restore its functionality. They can also be used to cover a tooth that has been treated with root canal therapy, or to complete a dental implant procedure. Because they can be made with a variety of materials, dental crowns are a versatile solution that can be used to treat a wide range of restorative and cosmetic dental issues.

What Is CEREC?

CEREC is a suite of dental tools that uses CAD/CAM (Computer-Aided Design/Manufacturing) technology to create dental restorations like dental crowns directly at Insight Dental Group. With our CEREC technology, we can build and place dental crowns in a single, 1-2 hour appointment. 

So instead of seeing a dentist multiple times and waiting weeks to get a new crown, you can come to Insight Dental Group and get a crown in just one day in Houston. Get in touch with us now to learn more, schedule a consultation, and see how you can benefit from our investments in advanced CEREC technology.

The Benefits of Dental Crowns

Extremely Durable

A properly-fit crown that is well-taken care of can last up to 15 years, or even longer in some cases! That way, you can keep smiling with confidence for years to come.

Natural Tooth Roots Are Retained

Crowns provide support and protect teeth that have been cracked, chipped, or decayed.

Blends Seamlessly With Your Smile

Dental crowns look and feel just like a natural tooth, so they fit in perfectly with the rest of your grin.

The Benefits Of CEREC Same-Day Crowns

Avoid temporary crowns

There’s no need to wear a temporary crown after your appointment at Insight Dental Group. With CEREC, you’ll come to our office to get a crown, then walk out in under two hours with a new, permanent, natural-looking crown. No temporaries needed!

No messy impressions

CEREC uses powerful 3D scanners to make a computer image of your teeth. There’s no need for messy, gag-inducing dental trays filled with putty. This simplifies your treatment and keeps you more comfortable.

One-day, one-appointment care

With CEREC, Dr. Vikram Shad or Dr. Avni Goel can build and place your crown in just a single 1-2 hour appointment. In contrast, lab-made traditional crowns usually require at least two appointments over a period of 2-3 weeks. If you have a busy schedule, CEREC same-day crowns may be right for you.

The Dental Crown Treatment Process

tooth cleaning icon

Preparing The Tooth

Your dentist will begin by cleaning and numbing your mouth in preparation for treatment. Sedation may be provided if you would like or if your dentist thinks it’s necessary. A dental drill will then be used to remove the decayed enamel and reshape your tooth to create a stable platform for your new dental crown.

Imaging & Temporary Crown Placement

Using dental putty or a 3D scanner, we will create impressions or models of your teeth, which will be used to build your custom dental crown. We’ll also capture some additional images of your teeth to ensure that your new crown matches the shade of your natural smile perfectly. Your model or impression will be sent to a dental lab where your crown will be crafted out of durable materials. Your dentist in Houston will attach a temporary crown for the few weeks it will take for your permanent crown to be made in order to protect your newly-prepared tooth.

Final Fit & Finish

Once we receive your permanent dental crown, you’ll return to our office in Houstonfor a final fitting. First, we’ll ensure that your new crown fits comfortably and make any final adjustments. When we’ve achieved the right fit, your dentist will permanently secure it in place with a powerful dental adhesive.

The CEREC Same-Day Crown Treatment Process

Tooth preparation and imaging

To begin the process, Dr. Shad or Dr. Goel will clean your teeth and numb your mouth. Then, they will trim away some of the enamel from your tooth to prepare it for your crown. Once that’s done, they will take a scan of your teeth with a handheld scanner.

Designing and creating your crown

Once they have scanned your teeth, Dr. Goel or Dr. Shad will use a computer to check the 3D image, and use this information to create a dental crown that fits into your mouth perfectly. Once the design has been finalized, we’ll send it to our CEREC machine, which will cut your crown out of a solid block of porcelain.

Crown adjustments and placement

It only takes a few minutes for our CEREC machine to build your crown. Then, Dr. Goel or Dr. Shad will check the fit of the crown, and make any necessary adjustments. Then, they will bond it to your tooth permanently, completing the procedure. You’ll walk out of our office with a brand-new tooth!

Frequently Asked Questions

Dental crowns that are placed as a part of restorative treatment are usually covered by most insurance policies. The exact amount of coverage, and how much you will have to pay, will vary based on your unique plan.

Cosmetic crowns, however, may not be covered by insurance. Check with your insurance to find out if dental crowns are covered under your policy.

Dental crowns can last as long as 15 years when they are made and placed properly. Keeping up with good oral health habits, like brushing your teeth at least twice a day and  flossing at least once a day, as well as seeing your Houston dentist every 6 months for regular cleanings and checkups can also enhance your crown’s longevity. Same-day crowns aren’t quite as durable, but they can still last for many years with the proper care.

To care for your dental crown, all you need to do is treat it like you would your natural teeth. Be sure to brush at least twice a day for at least two minutes and floss at least once, preferably at night. In addition to visiting your dentist every six months for regular visits, avoid snacking on overly hard or sticky foods to help extend the lifespan of your dental crown.

You may benefit from a crown if your teeth are damaged or severely decayed. If your teeth are causing you pain, discomfort, or are visibly damaged or discolored, don’t wait to schedule a consultation with your dentist, so you can find out if dental crowns can alleviate your oral health issues.

Dental crowns can be used to treat teeth that have suffered damage and decay. Other candidates that could benefit from a dental crown include patients who have serious cavities, as well as those who have experienced dental trauma resulting in cracked, chipped, or broken teeth. Patients who have undergone root canal therapy will often require a crown to finish the procedure, as crowns cap the entire tooth all the way down to the gumline in order to protect it from future issues.

In addition, because crowns can restore the shape and appearance of teeth in addition to restoring their functionality, they can be used for certain cosmetic cases where other services like veneers or dental bonding are not viable options.


Yes. If you need two or more crowns, it’s possible to create them and restore your smile in one day. However, the more crowns you need, the longer the process will take. For more information and to get an estimate of your treatment time, you can schedule a consultation with the team at Insight Dental Group.

CEREC is recommended for most of the same conditions that traditional dental crowns are used to treat. For example, Dr. Shad or Dr. Goel may recommend a CEREC crown if you have a large cavity, an infected tooth that needs root canal treatment, or after a dental emergency like a broken or cracked tooth.

Usually, CEREC crowns cost about as much as regular crowns, and are also covered by dental insurance. This makes a CEREC crown a great option for restoring your smile, even if you’re on a tight budget.

CEREC crowns typically last just as long as lab-made crowns. You can expect your new tooth to last 20 years or longer with proper care. Make sure you brush and floss regularly, eat a healthy diet, and come to our office for routine six-month checkups from Dr. Goel or Dr. Shad.
