Dental Crowns

Suffering from broken or decayed teeth can cause pain while chewing, difficulty speaking, and feelings of self-consciousness when you smile.

Dr. Philip Latteier can restore the form and function of your smile with a dental crown at Midnight Sun Dental in Anchorage, AK.

Learn how our dentist can use the advanced CEREC® system to repair a weakened tooth with a dental crown in a single appointment...

Restore a Tooth with a Same-Day Dental Crown

Treat and Protect

A porcelain dental crown placed over a tooth following treatment for physical trauma or tooth decay reinforces the external structure and protects it from further damage. Prompt treatment for an infection with a root canal can oftentimes prevent the need for extraction.

Advanced Materials

Constructed of porcelain ceramics designed to mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth, dental crowns are engineered to withstand normal biting forces. With proper care and regular checkups with our Anchorage dentist, dental crowns can last a decade or longer.

Seamless Results

The high-quality, all-porcelain dental crowns used at our dentistry practice are both durable and life-like in their appearance. Our dentist, Dr. Latteier, will color-match your new crown to your surrounding teeth in order to provide you with a restored smile that appears completely natural.

Wonderful office. Had a cleaning, dr came in after and was very pleased with the service and attention from both the hygiene and doc. Xrays were quick and painless. Really cool machine that sings to you while you get your pictures taken. Over all good setting.

Your oral health is important to our team and we will gladly work with you so that you can get the dental care you need.

Experienced Dentist

Dr. Latteier has extensive experience in the field of dentistry. He served in the US Army Dental Core before opening his first private practice. After his time in the Army, Dr. Latteier spent a decade serving the dental needs of the community of Grand Junction, CO, before relocating to Anchorage, AK.

Same-Day Service

Thanks to the advanced in-office CEREC system, our dentist can treat a compromised tooth and place a custom porcelain dental crown in a single appointment. This allows you to skip having to schedule multiple office visits, deal with a bulky temporary crown, and hassle associated with traditional dental crowns.

Same-Day Crown Treatment Timeline

"A completely restored tooth in six easy steps."
"A completely restored tooth in six easy steps."


Dr. Latteier will treat the trauma or decay affecting your tooth. Following treatment, he will reshape the remaining tooth structure to prepare it for your new crown.

Digital Impressions

Using a small intraoral camera, Dr. Latteier will take precise 3-D images of your teeth. An added benefit of digital impressions is that these images can be stored and referred to in the future to monitor the success of your treatment.


The 3-D digital impressions will be sent to the CEREC software, allowing Dr. Latteier to design a restoration that will fit perfectly with your surrounding teeth to give your smile a natural appearance.


Once he is happy with your new virtual crown, Dr. Latteier will send the design to our in-office computer-controlled milling machine. Fabricating a crown from a porcelain blank takes anywhere from four to 20 minutes.


Dr. Latteier will test fit your new crown to ensure you are happy with the appearance and function of your new bite. He can make any necessary adjustments from the dental chair while you wait.


Once both you and our dentist are happy with the results, he will permanently affix your new crown with dental cement. Thanks to our CEREC system, you will leave our office with a fully restored smile.
