CEREC (Same-Day Crowns)


No Temporary.
No Messy Impressions.
One Appointment.

CEREC is an advanced dental technology that is utilized for restoring decayed, cracked, or chipped teeth. CEREC can create full crowns, implant crowns, inlays/onlays (i.e. partial crowns) and veneers. The most beneficial feature of receiving a CEREC restoration is that it is accomplished in one visit. In addition, there is no messy impression and no temporary to wear.

How It Works:
A CEREC appointment is very simple. The first step is to remove all decay, old filling material and compromised tooth structure. Then a very fine white powder is sprayed over the teeth and a camera will capture a series of 2D images. The computer then stitches the 2D images together to create a 3D model of your mouth. This will allow us to design the restoration right in front of you. The design is then sent wirelessly to our milling unit where your restoration will be milled from a compressed porcelain. This step takes approximately 10-15 minutes. You can actually watch this process if you would like. After the milling and crystallization stage, we will try in and bond your restoration.

We love to hear what our patients think!

Dr. Cheng and her staff are fabulous! I have seen her several times for multiple fillings and a partial crown, and each time they have gone out of their way to ensure my comfort and to make me feel calm and relaxed. They are friendly, yet always professional- I feel confident trusting my chompers to them. El Campo is lucky to have a dentist like Dr. Cheng!

Dr Cheng is always friendly and thorough when it comes to your dental care. In the years that my family have been a patients at this office we have always been treated respectfully and in a timely manner. The staff is always friendly and there to help when needed. TF

I am usually scared to go to the dentist. Dr Chang was sooo very kind and gentle.

This group of ladies are always so kind! Janet and Angie at the front desk are the first women you see, and they are always so pleasant! Sarah is my hygienist and she’s so sweet and great at what she does! Love Dr. Cheng! She is so soft spoken and amazing at what she does. I didn’t go to the dentist for 8+ years and my mouth was full of cavities before I saw Dr. Cheng, and she fixed me right up and never made me feel judged. She also removed my wisdom teeth and I recovered within a couple days! I highly recommend these ladies!! ❤️❤️❤️

I had a tooth cleaning done today & have been very pleased with my dental hygienist. I have been going to El Campo Dental Clinic since 1979. The employees there are of the highest rated. Thanks to Dr John, Dr Cheng and their staff.
