Summer is here, and just like you, we couldn’t be any more excited about it here at Heroes Dental! Now is the best time of the year to schedule your dental appointments and check-ups without the drawbacks that you normally encounter during the rest of the year. In fact, patients prefer to complete their cosmetic dental treatments during the summer as it offers the ideal opportunity to take time off from work, and also recover if needed.

One of our most popular procedures here Heroes Dental is our same day dentistry CEREC dental crowns treatment, which is less invasive than traditional cosmetic treatments while still offering brilliant benefits.


Did your dentist recommend a dental crown at your previous appointment? If so, it’s very important not to delay getting the procedure done, as a dental crown is one of the best options for extending the life of a tooth.

If any of your teeth are cracked or have severely decayed, they will generally cause pain whenever you chew and bite down on food, regardless of whether it’s a hard or soft substance. Having a cracked tooth is a very serious condition and can require a dental crown, or in some cases, even a root canal.

There are a number of different options to consider before deciding to go forth with a dental crown. You might prefer a filling instead of a dental crown, but even that does not guarantee that you won’t need a crown eventually.

It’s very important to discuss all your options with your dentist before beginning the procedure. If a dental crown is the best option for you, we recommend you opt for CEREC dental crowns at Heroes Dental.


A dental crown is a hard-shelled, protective shield for your tooth, which is designed to improve and even restore, the shape and strength of cracked or damaged teeth.

As opposed to traditional or lab-made dental crowns, a CEREC crown won’t require manual impressions or numerous visits to the dentist. With today’s advanced technology, Heroes Dental can create and place your CEREC crown in just one visit.

Our team of dental experts will use a CAD-CAM machine to design a crown exactly for your needs. The system also offers patients and dentists the ability to see what the crown will look like in the patient’s mouth in 3D. After this initial step, the crown will be created from ceramic material and placed into the patient’s mouth in the same visit.


The application is easy, fast, and completely safe.

There’s no need for the use of uncomfortable impression trays to capture a mold of the shape and alignment of your teeth. Once the CEREC crown is ready, it is securely bonded to the patient’s tooth the same way it would be done with a traditional crown.

Not only is it a speedy process without messy impressions, but a CEREC crown is also long lasting. With the materials and effective technology incorporated into the process, a CEREC crown can be incredibly durable and last up to 10 years if properly cared for.


Not only is the procedure fast and painless, but the CEREC crown imitates and matches the look of your teeth better than traditional lab-made crowns. Your dentist has a variety of shades to choose from for a more natural and real look, and there are no metals or uncomfortable porcelains involved.

With the natural appearance that a CEREC crown conveys, no one will ever know it’s even there, and you can go back to your normal life in one day, pain-free.
