At Anchorage Dental Associates, we are proud to offer many restorative dental options to bring your teeth back to their normal, healthy state. When a tooth experiences infection (cavities) or trauma, sometimes they are left in a state where they cannot continue functioning. To avoid extraction, we will many times save the tooth using a dental crown. Dental crowns are caps that sit over the top of the tooth that needs restoration and acts as the new crown of the tooth.
Normally crowns take at least two visits to our Anchorage, AK office to place, but thanks to this Same day crown technology that we have adopted we can save you time and money while giving you the same quality dental crowns. Check out our Same Day Crowns Technology!

The Dental Crown Procedure
Receiving a dental crown typically takes two visits to our office to complete, unless you opt for the same day crown procedure. During the first visit to our office, we will take an impression of your tooth that we will use to create a replica of your tooth. We will prepare the tooth to receive the dental crown by shaving off the outer layer of enamel. Finally, we will place a temporary crown over your tooth.
During your follow-up appointment, we will remove the temporary crown and place the permanent one.
Call us today at our Anchorage, AK office at (907) 885-3666 to schedule your appointment.
