Quality Care at Our Wasilla, AK, Practice

"Dr. Casey Bowen and dental hygienist Chanel were awesome. They fixed my existing filling that came undone when a neighboring dentist couldn’t pinpoint the problem and told me to come back in a few weeks when it turns into a root canal!! I was amazed by how great they worked together to resolve my problem and he gave me a back up plan if plan A didn’t work. I would highly recommend Dr. Bowen and staff. Chanel was amazing and even let my son watch her Netflix account on her phone! Thank you guys for everything!"

Get Your New Crown in One Visit

Unlike other practices that rely on a dental lab for their crowns, our team can handle everything in-house in one visit. CEREC® milling machines can sculpt custom restorations from blocks of ceramic or porcelain. We use this innovative technology to design and fabricate dental crowns in a single appointment. With us, you won't need a temporary crown or a second appointment to get your final restoration.

Our crowns are made from IPS e.max® and zirconia, both of which are highly regarded for functional and aesthetic qualities. We have everything needed to create durable, long-lasting crowns tailored to you.

See How a Dental Crown is Placed

The tooth is altered to allow the crown to fit properly and sit properly next to surrounding teeth. There is no need for a temporary crown, as we can craft a permanent crown in as little as one appointment in our Wasilla office. Once your crown is ready, it is cemented to the tooth with special bonding material. 

Dental Crown Treatment A Closer Look Into the Process

Since all of our crown treatments are customized, your specific steps may vary. However, the typical timeline will look something like the following:

With CEREC, you won't need to wear a temporary crown; you can benefit from a permanent restoration right away.
With CEREC, you won't need to wear a temporary crown; you can benefit from a permanent restoration right away.


Upon your first visit to our Wasilla office, your dentist will consult you on your concerns and smile goals. They will assess the health of your natural teeth and answer any questions you may have about treatment options.

Preparatory Dental Work

Before placing your restoration, we’ll ensure your teeth and gums are in good condition. This may involve recommending root canal therapy or gum disease treatment before shaping your tooth to accommodate a dental crown.

Digital Impressions

Your dentist will take a detailed digital impression of the area. We use cone beam 3D imaging to gather detailed images of your teeth; you won’t have to put up with the goopy dental putty that traditional impressions require.

Preview of Results

Wonder what you’ll look like after the dental procedure? A notable advantage of same-day crowns is that you’re able to preview what your teeth will look like after the process.

Crown Fabrication

Using your digital impressions, the CEREC Primemill machine in our office will create a custom crown from a block of your chosen material.


Your dentist will bond your crown to the tooth using a special dental cement; thanks to CEREC, no temporary crown is necessary. Your dentist will make any adjustments necessary to ensure your crown fits and functions properly.

Do You Need Your Dental Crown Replaced?

With proper dental maintenance, crowns are designed to last anywhere between 10-15 years. However, you may need to replace your dental crowns sooner. Here are some signs your existing dental crown needs attention:

  • You experience tooth or gum pain around the crown.
  • There are visible fractures in the restoration.
  • Your dental crown feels loose.
  • Discoloration of your natural teeth over time impacts your confidence.

Whether your crown has sustained damage, was improperly created and placed, or has simply reached its shelf life, you can trust our dentists to fabricate you a new reliable restoration.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Crowns

Q. Does a dental crown hurt?

A. No. When you receive your dental crown, your dentist will thoroughly numb the area before they begin any work on the tooth or teeth. We also provide sedation dentistry at our practice in Wasilla, AK, for those who need an extra level of comfort. Once it is cemented in place, your dentist will check to ensure your crown functions properly and fits comfortably. 

Q. How long does a dental crown last?

A. With proper care and maintenance, a dental crown can last 15 years or more. Maintain good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing your teeth twice a day. Do not use your teeth as a tool. This can damage the dental crown as well as your other teeth. Don't forget to visit your dentist for regular exams and cleanings to keep your smile healthy and beautiful for years to come. 

Q. Why not just pull a damaged tooth?

A. The jawbone relies on the stimulation your tooth roots provide to remain healthy. Without that stimulation, the jawbone can begin to deteriorate. This can cause other oral health complications, such as shifting teeth and further tooth loss. This is just one reason why dentists always strive to preserve natural teeth. Tooth extraction is only performed as a last resort. Should you need an extraction, an implant-supported crown can keep your jaw healthy and restore the function and appearance of your smile. 

Q. What should I do if my crown falls off?

A. If your crown comes loose from the tooth or falls off completely, preserve the crown and contact our Wasilla office immediately. In most cases, our dentist can cement it back in place.
