Enhance the Health and Aesthetics of Your Smile
Do you have a tooth that’s broken, misshapen, decayed, infected, or completely missing? At Brooklyn Dental Heights, Dr. Stanislaus can repair your injured tooth with a traditional or same-day crown that’s designed to blend seamlessly with your smile and restore the function of your tooth.
A dental crown, or “cap,” is made of natural-looking porcelain material that delivers an aesthetically pleasing appearance and works to relieve tooth pain, rebuild its structure, and protect your overall health.
How Dr. Stanislaus Creates and Places Crowns
Receiving a dental crown is a quick and easy process that begins with a consultation so Dr. Stanislaus can determine the best treatment for your smile. In many cases, you’ll be able to come in and leave the same day with a completely rejuvenated smile.
After your consultation, here’s how the placement of your traditional or same-day dental crown will go:
- Dr. Stanislaus will begin your procedure by safely administering local anesthesia to numb your tooth and its surrounding tissue, ensuring you feel comfortable and relaxed.
- Next, we’ll remove small amounts of enamel around the affected tooth to help make sure the crown will fit properly over it. We’ll also eliminate any decayed or damaged parts of the tooth.
- Once the tooth is prepared, Dr. Stanislaus will take digital impressions of your mouth so he can create a precise treatment plan and crown that matches the shape, size, and color of your natural teeth.
- Depending on your case, we will either send your impressions to a dental lab so they can create your traditional crown or use our advanced CEREC® technology to design your same-day crown.
- Finally, we’ll place your custom crown once it’s been perfectly made to blend in with your smile. Dr. Stanislaus will also make any necessary adjustments before he permanently bonds the crown to your tooth.
Our CEREC technology allows us to provide you with the opportunity to restore your damaged tooth in just one day. You won’t have to wait for weeks to receive your final restoration anymore. CEREC custom-crafts each crown in less than an hour using its computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD-CAM) techniques.
They’re made from strong, long-lasting porcelain material that matches the natural shade of your teeth. Once Dr. Stanislaus ensures your crown fits properly and you’re happy with its appearance, he’ll permanently secure it over your affected tooth.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take to get a dental crown?
Typically, getting a dental crown requires two appointments that are a couple of weeks apart. This is to allow time for your restoration to be custom-crafted in a laboratory. However, thanks to our advanced CEREC technology, Dr. Stanislaus can mill and place your porcelain crown in just one visit. He’ll use a precise digital impression of your teeth to design your crown, ensuring it looks natural and fits perfectly. In just an hour, you can leave our office with a brand-new smile that will shine like never before.
Can I replace a gold or metal crown with a porcelain crown?
Yes! Many patients ask us about upgrading old crowns to porcelain for a more natural appearance. In most cases, this can be done without any issues. If you’re interested in switching out your gold or metal crown for a porcelain crown, give our Brooklyn Heights dental practice a call and schedule a consultation with Dr. Stanislaus.
