Save Time with Same-Day CEREC Restorations
Going to the dentist for a restoration, such as a dental crown, can take time to complete. You will have to undergo dental impressions and then have those sent to an offsite lab, where the restoration is created. This requires a second appointment, often more than a week or two weeks later, to have the restoration put in place. This whole situation can be burdensome and time-consuming. The good news to patients in Pflugerville, Texas, is that this no longer needs to be the case! CEREC same-day restorations, offered at Elite Smiles of Pflugerville, allow patients to come in for a single visit and walk away with their dental crown the very same day.
What Is CEREC Same-Day Technology?
With the continuing advancement of technology in dentistry, the need to wait for an offsite lab to create restorations is no longer necessary. Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, or CEREC, is a technology that utilizes current computer design and manufacturing processes to develop restorations same-day and in-office. This may sound complicated, so let’s break down the technology.
CEREC technology allows for several types of restorations, including dental crowns, to be created without the need for traditional dental impressions. Your restoration will be developed in-office utilizing CAD/CAM (computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing) processes so that you walk away with your restoration in place after just one visit. Digital impressions are taken, which are then passed to a unit that fabricates the ceramic restoration.

Dr. Jordan Tucker and his entire staff are amazing! I have never had a better experience at a dentist office than I did at Elite Smiles. Their compassion and understanding for the patient is indescribable. The dental work they do there is spot on! Dr. Tucker definitely has a patient for life!
Dr. Tucker and his staff are amazing and genuine, they made me feel extremely welcomed and my experience with them is the best dentist experience Ive had without a doubt! The payment options they provide are outstanding and they explained things very thoroughly, being confused or unsure is NOT an option. I felt and still feel very comfortable with them so if anyones looking for a good dentist that cares about their patients youve come to the right place. Thank you Dr. Tucker and all of your staff for being so genuine, I will definitely be leaving here with an elite smile!!
I started seeing Dr. Tucker back in 2018 in Temple when I started considering improving my smile. I had a lot of fillings as a kid that were now cracked teeth needing addressed first. Dr. Tucker did an amazing job fixing everything, and saved me a ton of money. He started his own office about an hour away from where I lived shortly after completing my work. Once I was ready to start the cosmetic work I went to 3 different dentists in my area who were okay, but I didn't feel great about moving forward with them so i decided to make the drive to see Dr. Tucker and he literally changed my life! I am in love with my my new smile and grateful for Dr. Tucker!
This dental office is amazing. It all starts as soon as you walk through the door with a warm welcome. They treat you like a family member or friend and not just a patient. Amber is so kind. Micha my hygienist explained the entire process of the cleaning to me. Made me feel comfortable and relaxed.

A Step-By-Step Guide to the CEREC Process
The CEREC process is usually completed in three steps:
- Your dentist will apply a local numbing agent, if needed, so that the tooth requiring the restoration can be prepared. Once the tooth is prepared, a digital impression of your mouth will be taken.
- Using specialized computer software, your dentist will design the model for your restoration. This restoration is custom-made for each patient so that it blends in with the rest of the teeth.
- Specifications created during the design phase are then transferred to the manufacturing equipment, which will create the restoration with an incredibly high degree of accuracy. Once completed, the restoration can be immediately put in place and bonded to the tooth.
As a result, a process that used to take weeks can now be completed in a single visit!
Advantages of CEREC
At Elite Smiles, we strive to provide care that is safe, effective, and convenient. CEREC restorations really hit the mark on all three of these — in a single visit, you can walk away with your restoration in place. And do not mistake this execution speed for lack of quality. These same-day restorations provide the same strength, durability, and support as any other restoration from an offsite lab. Here are some advantages that CEREC restorations offer patients.
- Dental work that has traditionally required multiple visits can now be completed in just a single appointment. This creates convenience for our patients who may have to take time off work or miss other engagements to make multiple appointments. The disruption to your schedule is minimized, and the stress of having to come in for multiple appointments is eliminated.
- The CEREC manufacturing equipment is very accurate and allows your dentist complete control over the process.
- The need for a temporary solution is eliminated. In the past, patients would require a temporary crown while waiting for a lab to create their permanent crown. Caring for temporary fixes can be stressful to some patients, and there is some risk associated with these temporary restorations. Now you can walk out with your permanent restoration in place in a single visit, thanks to CEREC.
