CEREC® Same Day Crowns

CEREC® Same Day Crowns


Our Dentists in Tampa, Dr. Randall Diez and Dr. Michael Diez have been serving the Carrollwood and Westchase communities of Tampa for over 30 years and have been offering CEREC Same Day Technology since 2010. Here, at General and Cosmetic Dentistry of Tampa our dentists can repair damaged or decayed teeth with a CEREC crown in just one dental visit!

CEREC Same Day Crowns are designed and created in our in-house laboratory by Dr Randall Diez and Dr. Michael Diez then permanently placed on your tooth – all during the same appointment! Your new porcelain crown is finished the same day it is started, saving you time ~ hence the name “Same Day Crowns.”

Our Tampa Dentists are among the few dentist in Tampa to offer this advanced, innovative same day technology. Don’t delay your dental treatment, if you need a crown, call us today.

The Advantage of CEREC vs. Traditional Crowns

  • CEREC Crowns Require: only one 2 hour appointment; getting numb only once to have your permanent, porcelain crown completed and placed on your tooth! All in one appointment!
  • Traditional Crowns Require: 2 dental appointments, 3 weeks wearing a temporary crown and 2 numbing injections – one at each appointment.
  • Both CEREC and Traditional crowns are made of an all porcelain resin.

In summary, CEREC’s innovative technology has universally transformed getting a dental crown from a 3 week process, to a time-saving 2 hour procedure – completed in one day!

Your CEREC Appointment Explained:

During your initial dental exam with either of our CEREC Certified dentists, Dr Randall Diez or Dr. Michael Diez will determine if a damaged or decayed tooth needs a crown. Using digital x-rays and CAD-CAM software (Computer-Assisted Design/Computer-Assisted Manufacturing) light scanning technology the doctors create and capture the image of the tooth – this is a digital impression. This is done in the operatory on the CEREC digital machine – right beside the chair you sit in! During the digital scanning you will be able to watch Dr. Randall Diez or Dr. Michael use their creative skills to design the image that will ultimately produce your customized porcelain crown.

This quick digital process eliminates gooey impressions and long wait times for lab work to be completed.

The digital impression gives the CEREC milling machine all the information needed to manufacture a beautiful all-porcelain dental crown. The digital image is sent to the milling machine in our in-office lab where it will then be created in approximately 15 minutes. Once the crown is milled (completed) the dentists add their unique artistic shading and polishing to finish the CEREC crown. The new crown is then securely bonded (cemented) on your tooth and the procedure is completed. From the moment you enter the office, to the time you are walking out, the entire process usually takes less than 2 hours!

Here at General & Cosmetic Dentistry of Tampa our patients are ecstatic with Same Day Crowns and the time they save with CEREC. Please read the testimonies below from our patients who left a 5 star review on our Google Business page: General & Cosmetic Dentistry of Tampa – Randall Diez DMD

There are Dentists & then there are BETTER Dentists.. I broke a filling & had to get some emergency work done. I had a hard time getting an appointment with anyone for emergency repair. I finally get an appointment and I go to a dentist and he tells me that he's just going to do an evaluation and set up an appointment for someone else to do the repair! I asked him why not do the repair now because it hurts? He said that he couldn't do it! So I just wasted 2 hours driving an extra 40 miles to get to someone that I can get an appointment with but couldn't do anything! I was very upset! I left that office and went straight to Randall Diez. With no appointment I explained the situation to them and to my surprise they accepted me in because they knew I was hurting. I walked in so angry and I left so happy! I cannot say enough about these people , they went out of their way to help me get it taken care of. Now here's the real kicker! I had to have a crown done, where else can you go that is capable of doing the entire job including making the new crown in one appointment! They have the equipment necessary to get this job done in one appointment instead of making someone wait to have the new crown made somewhere else. Not to mention this is a second generation dentist working here. These people have the best bedside manner of any dentist office I've ever been in. I hate the dentist because it always means pain for me and they took the time to take care of me properly and I cannot say thank you enough! Job well done guys!

I received a crown at this location and had a pleasant experience overall. From the front desk to the exam room, everyone I encountered was polite and kind. I was able to get fitted and have my crown implanted in the same day by Dr. Diez. He is a very patient and kind dentist, taking the time to explain everything in a way that is comprehensive and thorough. I am very pleased with my experience here and would highly recommend coming here for any dental work.

I was really anxious about the crown replacement but Dr D and his staff were very kind and patient with me. I was also thrilled that I went home that day with the permanent crown. Quality work, good people and I felt safe and respected. These folks are my heroes!

I lost a crown one night. The next day, Dr.Randal Diez created a crown in less than an hour. I experienced NO pain or discomfort, ZERO. This office is where you need to go.

I cannot say enough great things about this Dentist and his practice. I was searching for a new Dentist, one with Cerec technology.. a friend mentioned Dr. Diez and after reading his rave reviews and testimonials, my decision was made. I was facing some challenging and intimidating dental work and was super stressed. From the moment I entered the office I felt as if I were at home, safe at home. He and his staff treated me with such personal care, respect and professionalism with a welcoming, non-judgemental manner. Today was the first part of my journey of restoration and recovery of not only my dental health, but my mental health, as well :) I had several intense procedures today during a 4 hour visit, and the beginning results of my treatments are incredible.. I have referred a family member already and will continue to do so.. I feel blessed to be in his care. I want to thank you, Dr. Diez and your entire staff who all brought something very special to my experience!

I went to Dr. Randall Diez to have two crowns put in. One of the reasons I was so impressed with his service is that he uses state of the art equipment. With this equipment he was able to make the crowns right there in his office. This way you don’t have to use up a lot of your own valuable time going back and forth to the Dentist office until the work is finally done. I was very satisfied with how professional the work was and yet quick and easy. They have a very nice clean office with a very professional and friendly staff. I would highly recommend Dr. Diez to anyone who needs general or cosmetic dental work.
