Honestly, this is the best and friendliest office in town. I had to bring my toddler with me to my teeth-cleaning appointment today and the staff was all so kind and understanding with her, they even sent her home with her own princess toothbrush. They go above and beyond to get to know their patients and it's always a positive experience.View On Google
What Happens During Dental Crown Treatment?
Benefits of Crowns
Repairing Your Natural Teeth
A dental crown, or cap, covers the entire exposed surface of your tooth, protecting it from further decay or damage that could require a tooth extraction. Following a serious infection or tooth fracture, a crown can preserve your tooth structure as best as possible. If you do require extraction, we can secure a crown to a dental implant.
Today's dental crowns are made from medical-grade dental ceramic or zirconia that is made to withstand as much pressure as a natural tooth. Typically, crowns can last more than a decade before needing to be replaced by our dentists. However, patients must maintain good oral hygiene and visit the dentist twice a year.
The Dental Crown Treatment Process Step-By-Step
We might recommend a same-day or traditional crown, which takes about a week to be fabricated.

Same-Day Dental Crowns A Convenient Solution
We are proud to use CEREC technology at our Amarillo office. CEREC brings the precision and quality of a dental lab into our dental practice. You don't always need to wait weeks for a crown to be crafted. With CEREC, you can get a custom dental crown in just one visit.
The advanced CEREC dental system uses CAD/CAM technology to take digital impressions of a prepped tooth. From this digital impression, our dentists can design a custom crown using the system's 3D software. Minor adjustments can be made to ensure the crown fits the prepped tooth and keeps the bite in optimal alignment. Once final tweaks are made, we can then fabricate the crown out of a solid block of porcelain here at the office.
The great benefit of CEREC same-day crowns is that they allow our patients to undergo dental crown treatment in just one appointment. There is no need to take extra time off from work if you want a beautiful smile.
Dental Crown FAQ
How strong are CEREC dental crowns?Same-day CEREC crowns are made from high-quality porcelain. They are able to withstand the normal pressures of biting and chewing. In fact, these in-office crowns are of comparable quality to restorations fabricated at a dental lab.
How long do dental crowns last?
Porcelain, zirconia, and metal crowns can last 15 years or more with proper aftercare. Brushing the teeth twice a day, flossing the teeth daily, and seeing the dentist every six months are key elements of good oral health and hygiene.
Can dental crowns be placed on the front teeth?
Dental crowns can be placed on the front teeth. When crafting crowns for this highly visible area of the smile, we will make every effort to craft a restoration that looks as natural as possible. This may involve the use of high-quality materials and fabrication at our trusted lab.
Will I experience pain during treatment?
Patients will not experience discomfort during treatment because we administer a local anesthetic to completely numb the area. If anything, treatment relieves pain that the patient may have experienced due to a cavity or root canal infection.
Will I experience pain after treatment?
After treatment, patients may experience slight sensitivity; this can be alleviated with over-the-counter pain medication. You should also avoid chewing in the treated area for a couple of days.

What Amarillo, TX, Patients Have to Say "An amazing experience!"
Very friendly staff! Called and asked if they had emergency walk-ins available and I was able to come in that moment. Got there and was greeted with friendly faces. Didn't even finish filling out papers and was called back and that was an amazing experience as well. I was able to get in and out in under an hour. And when I was leaving they all told me to have a great day with smiles on their faces! I will definitely be referring them to any who needs dental care!View On Google
The staff - hygienists, appointment scheduler, insurance clerk , and dentists - is always courteous and devote full attention to the patient. I live in Mesa, AZ but try to come all the way to Amarillo twice a year to get my teeth cleaned. I have had some other procedures done and Dr. Pendergrass constantly asking if I am having any pain, and more than willing to make sure I am totally comfortable throughout whatever procedure he is doing. I highly recommend this practice to anyone!View On Google
