CEREC Same Day Dentistry

No one needs more than one appointment for a dental crown.  If you have the best technology – In the past (and in many dental offices still today), getting a crown or other dental restoration was quite a process. Your first visit would include traditional impressions like holding messy, nasty goop in your mouth, which would then be sent to an off-site dental lab for your restoration to be created. Now the wait begins as you would have a numbing injection to prepare the tooth, and be set with an ill-fitting temporary you would have to wear uncomfortably for a few weeks.  Taking up more of your time traditionally you’d return for a second visit, get another injection, have the temporary removed, and finally be fitted with the final restoration. Are we having fun yet?  Who has time for that – not to mention the technology is second best.

That is not how we do things at Dean Cosmetic Dentistry with Dr. Donnie Dean.

At Dean Cosmetic Dentistry in Knoxville, our advanced CEREC® technology allows us to digitally design, fabricate and place restorations like inlays/onlays, crowns, bridges and veneers in a single office visit!

Inlay/Onlay/Overlay Illustration

Aside from a simple filling, inlays and onlays are the most conservative option for restoring a tooth. Whether you have a larger area of decay, or your tooth has been chipped or broken, an inlay or onlay is a great way to restore the aesthetics, health, and function of your smile.

Inlays and onlays are used to supplement the natural tooth and fill in areas that have been decayed or damaged. Inlays repair damage contained within the cusp (outer ridge) of the tooth, while onlays are slightly larger and repair damage that extends beyond the cusp.

Inlays and onlays require minimal removal of healthy tooth structure, so they are a great option for patients who need a restoration but don’t quite require a full crown.

With our advanced CEREC® same day technology, we can usually complete the whole process in a single visit! You can relax, watch television or catch up on correspondence on your phone!

If you have a tooth that’s been badly decayed or damaged, and is beyond the point of repair with an inlay or onlay, you may need a crown. Crowns are tooth shaped caps that are fitted over any remaining healthy tooth structure to restore the tooth to its fully functioning, beautiful condition.

Crowns do require some removal of healthy tooth structure in order to make room for the new restoration and ensure it fits and functions properly. If you are missing a tooth entirely, and are a candidate for dental implants, we can give you the most recommended single tooth replacement with an implant supported crown (full fabricated tooth anchored to an implant).

If you’re suffering from a broken or missing tooth, you probably already know it is in your best interest to have it repaired and restored. A crown can help you avoid further damage to the tooth, enjoy your favorite foods again, and speak and smile with confidence! With our advanced CEREC® same day technology, we can usually complete the whole process in a single visit!


Dental Bridges IllustrationIf you’re missing a tooth or several teeth, we may recommend a porcelain bridge to fill the gap and bring balance back to your smile. A bridge consists of one or more fabricated teeth, usually anchored to surrounding teeth with crowns on either side.

When one or more teeth go missing, it can really throw your whole mouth out of whack. Your alignment may shift, your bite forces may change, and your TMJ or jaw joint may eventually suffer the consequences of this imbalance.

Bridges are a wonderful permanent solution for missing teeth. If you are a candidate for dental implants, we may recommend adding the extra layer of security and jawbone health with an implant supported bridge.

With our advanced CEREC® same day technology, we can usually complete the whole process in a single visit!
