Each dental crown requires exact procedures to ensure proper strength to withstand regular use and, in the case of porcelain or ceramic crowns, optimal aesthetics to achieve the most natural-looking appearance. Dr. Shainholtz takes pride in his craft and is dedicated to working with patients to create a smile they will love. Each dental crown procedure is done with the utmost care, and he will perform all stages of your treatment himself for optimal results.
Before placing a crown, Dr. Shainholtz will examine and prepare your tooth. Once he determines that a crown is the best solution for your needs, he will gently reshape the tooth to ensure a proper fit. We will then take highly detailed scans of your bite to design your custom restoration. Our practice offers both traditional and same-day CEREC restorations. Placing a traditional dental crown generally requires two office visits and Dr. Shainholtz will provide a temporary crown to protect your tooth until your follow-up appointment.

Once all necessary preparations are complete, a permanent crown will be crafted. If you are receiving a traditional restoration, it will typically take two weeks to receive your restoration. For patients receiving a crown with state-of-the-art CEREC system, we can usually provide your restoration in less than an hour. Dr. Shainholtz can design your crown on a chair-side computer and discuss any concerns you may have. Once the designs are complete, an in-office milling unit will carve your restoration from a solid piece of porcelain. In a single appointment, you can leave our office with a fully restored tooth and healthy smile. Once crowns are in place, they can be cared for just like natural teeth.
