Need a New Crown?
We Offer Same-Day Restorations
A broken or dislodged dental crown is a common dental emergency. At Midnight Sun Dental in Anchorage, AK, Dr. Latteier can use cutting-edge CEREC® technology to design, manufacture, and place a dental crown in a single office visit.
The CEREC system is an advanced technology that analyzes a digital scan of your bite and then creates a custom-designed crown out of dental porcelain or zirconia in a matter of minutes. Thanks to CEREC, our emergency dentist can replace your damaged crown in only one appointment. At other practices, this process can require multiple office visits over several weeks.

Dental Emergency FAQs
What causes toothaches?
A number of circumstances can lead to a toothache. Common causes of tooth pain are dental infections, cavities, and impacted wisdom teeth. When you have a painful tooth, you should have our emergency dentist take a look at it as soon as possible. If your discomfort is caused by an infection, that can be a serious health issue that should be addressed right away.
Do I need a dentist or the emergency room?
You can visit the emergency room if you have excessive bleeding in your mouth that won't stop, or if you suspect you have a broken jaw. However, if you have a dental emergency like a broken tooth or a persistent toothache, it's better to visit a dentist like Dr. Latteier in Anchorage, AK.
Will insurance cover my emergency dental care?
Most dental insurance plans will cover emergency care. Our team includes experienced insurance experts who can file claims on your behalf and help you take full advantage of your benefits.
