Dr. Philip Latteier creates same-day crowns customized to fit your smile at his offices in Anchorage and Eagle River, AK.

Traditional Crowns Take About Two Weeks To Complete


Traditional dental crowns require two appointments. One to shape your affected tooth and fit you with a temporary crown, and one to place your permanent crown. Traditional dental crowns can take two weeks or longer to create.

Tooth Shaping

Dr. Philip Latteier or Dr. Tanner Menard will shape your tooth to remove any damage or decay.

Digital Impressions

Next, he will use our CEREC intraoral scanner to take digital impressions of your teeth. These scans allow him to see how your teeth fit together so he can create a crown with a near-perfect fit. 

Digital Design

With the dental images, your dentist digitally designs your new tooth.

CEREC Fabrication

The digital designs are sent to the CEREC milling machine to precisely carve your new tooth out of a solid block of porcelain. Fabrication typically takes around 30 minutes.

Permanent Crown

Once fabrication is complete, your dentist will cement the permanent crown to your recently treated tooth. You can leave our Anchorage or Eagle River office with a healthy, functioning, and natural-looking smile.

A Closer Look at CEREC
and How It Optimizes Results

Traditionally, crowns are sent to a dental lab to be fabricated in a process that can take 2-3 weeks. CEREC uses computer-assisted design and computer-assisted manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology to streamline treatment and avoid the need for a long wait. 

The CEREC intraoral scanner produces precise images of your teeth and sends them to your dentist's computer for them to design your crown digitally. Their digital designs are sent to the CEREC in-office milling machine for fabrication. The CEREC machine will use your digital designs to carve your custom crown out of a block of high-grade porcelain.

Your crown will be customized to comfortably fit your tooth and create a gorgeous, healthy smile.

Same-Day Crowns Can Replace a Missing Tooth When Supported By a Dental Implant

Dental implants are small, titanium posts surgically placed into the jaw to replace a missing tooth. Dr. Latteier and Dr. Menard can place dental implants and create CEREC crowns at our Anchorage practice

Have a Missing Tooth?

Our dentists can perform dental implant surgery to restore your missing tooth. It will take around four to six months for the site to heal completely. Once healed, we can replace your temporary restoration with a CEREC crown perfectly designed to fit your implant and smile.

Have a Dental Implant?

While your implants could last a lifetime, your restoration will need to be replaced after around 10 years. Our Anchorage practice can replace a dental crown that has become worn or damaged over time. By using our CEREC technology, we can restore your implant-supported crown in one visit.

Are Dental Crowns Right for You?

During your free consultation, Dr. Latteier or Dr. Menard will review your oral health to determine if CEREC crowns are the best treatment option for you. He will also discuss your goals and concerns. Crowns can help:

  • Repair a damaged tooth
  • Treat advanced decay
  • Protect your teeth from further damage
  • Protect your tooth after a root canal
  • Conceal stains
  • Replace missing teeth
