CEREC Dental Crowns
There never seems to be enough time in the day to accomplish everything that needs to be accomplished, especially when it comes to dental work. We understand, so Dr. Dale Spencer and Dr. Jamison Probst have incorporated time-saving CEREC® technology into our practice to bring you quality, convenient dental solutions. This advanced dental technology now allows us to create custom crowns and bridges in as little as just one appointment, and the benefits don’t stop there.
Dental Restorations in Just One Convenient Visit
CEREC allows us to create dental restorations in just one convenient visit to our office, eliminating the need for temporaries. Traditionally, a temporary piece would be fitted until the permanent was created at an outside lab. Now, in just one visit, Dr. Spencer can take an impression of your teeth without any messy, uncomfortable molds, and create a custom-designed dental crown or bridge. Because of its advanced capabilities, CEREC restorations are highly accurate in fit and completed within an hour.
CEREC Benefits from an Experienced Provider
Dr. Spencer is specially trained in CEREC technology, and serves as a CEREC trainer to fellow dental professionals. With this piece of modern dental technology, Dr. Spencer is enhancing smiles more quickly and accurately than ever before. By using CEREC, our patients are enjoying the following benefits:
- Natural-looking, custom-created restorations
- High quality ceramic dental crowns and bridges
- More durable restorations less prone to cracking
- Non-invasive dentistry
- Intraoral impressions that do not activate the gag reflex

I was very scared of going to the dentist from childhood experiences. I knew I needed to have my teeth fixed because I am tired of being embarrassed about them and not even wanting to smile. Dr. Spencer and his staff made me feel at ease with everything from the paperwork to the exam. I can not say enough how the concern and compassion they gave me really made me not so scared to go to the dentist. I highly recommend Hickory Dental not just for their services but that they make you feel like you’re part of the family.
I love this place! They really take time with you to listen and make educated decisions about your dental care. The staff is exceptional – friendly and warm! Lori is the best!
I have never been in a Dentist office where they are so fast and friendly. They provided me with what I ask and reschedule my appointment because I wasn’t a patient. They made me feel welcome. The service was great. My broken tooth was fixed one day and they cleaned my teeth the next day with no questions asked. They provided me with the best service possible. If you are wanting a Dentist Office I suggest Hickory Dental Clinic. 100% satisfied.
