Crowns are some of the most versatile dental treatment options available. We use dental crowns to replace teeth, restore severe tooth damage, strengthen weak teeth, and cosmetically enhance a person’s smile. At Chagrin Highlands Dental Group, you can enjoy a new, healthy smile in as little as one day with dental crowns!
Dental crowns are a restorative and cosmetic treatment option. They are widely used as tooth replacements. Crowns are commonly made from porcelain or ceramic. These are carefully designed to match the color and shape of your natural teeth.
Dental crowns can be used in a variety of treatments and are often used to:
Provide support or reinforcement
Anchor a bridge into place
Cover a dental implant
Protect a damaged/weakened tooth
Improve the appearance of a smile
What Types of Crowns Are Available?
Several materials can be used for dental crowns. The most common are metal, porcelain, and ceramic.
Porcelain and ceramic are the most popular options for dental crowns. Although they are more expensive, these materials are strong and natural-looking. With these, most people won’t even be able to tell that you have a dental crown.
What is the Procedure?
Depending on your personal needs and preferences, we will recommend either traditional crowns or CEREC one-day crowns.
For a traditional crown, Dr. Desatnik will begin by taking an impression of your tooth. We will send this to a dental lab where your new crown will be created. Depending on the material, the lab will create a design that will look and feel just like a natural tooth. Because we have to order traditional crowns from a lab, this procedure will take two visits to complete. We will give you a temporary crown to use while you wait for your permanent one to be made.
For a CEREC one-day crown, we can use advanced in-office printing technology to design, create, and place your new crown in a single visit! To do this, we will take a digital image of your teeth to use as a blueprint. We will then use this information to design a 3D model. Finally, our CEREC machine will take this model and create a permanent ceramic crown.
If you have any questions about traditional or CEREC dental crowns, call our office today at 216-464-9800. We would be happy to schedule a consultation to discuss your treatment options.

Dr. Desatnik and his team are wonderful to work with. My case was a complicated one, and then to complicate matters further, I had a very challenging travel schedule. Dr. Desatnik and his team were outstanding. They answered all of my questions, set realistic expectations and were very flexible to work with.

Dr. Desatnik and his office have been the best dental experience I have had. They are always on time, the office is spotless and the staff is extremely helpful. But most of all, Dr. Desatnik takes his time with you and explains the procedures. He is thorough, gentle and develops a great rapport with his patients. Highly recommended!
