Restore Damaged Teeth with Dr. Shlafer
A dental crown is a small cap that we place over damaged teeth to restore their strength and appearance. Our crowns are made from durable, tooth-colored porcelain to ensure a natural appearance and long-lasting results.

We typically use dental crowns to treat the following issues:
- Severely decayed teeth
- Damaged teeth from accidental trauma or injury
- If your tooth becomes severely worn down
- Weakened or worn down teeth
- Teeth with large fillings

- Minimally invasive procedure
The Dental Crown Process
Restoring your damaged tooth with a dental crown is a relatively simple process that can typically be completed in just two appointments. During your first visit, Dr. Shlafer will take a precise impression of your teeth and provide a temporary crown to protect your tooth. In roughly two weeks, you can return to our office, where he will place your permanent crown.
Each of our crowns are customized to match the unique size, shape, and color of your natural teeth. They can also last ten to fifteen years with proper care. Best of all, no one will be able to tell that you are wearing a restoration -- all they will see is your stunning new smile.
CEREC® Single-Visit Crowns
If you are pressed for time, we feature advanced CEREC technology that allows us to place your crown in just one short appointment. The CEREC software creates a 3D virtual model of your teeth and sends it to a machine which mills your crown in just ten to twenty minutes.
Dr. Shlafer will place your crown on the spot, completing the entire process in approximately an hour. For patients who want the fastest treatment available, no other option can match the convenience of CEREC crowns.
