I didn't know what to expect on my first visit. I was pleasantly surprised and pleased. I'm sorry I didn't get the name of the girl who took care of me, but she was very thorough and kind. All in the office were very pleasant and kind to a new patient. I will refer Aesthetic Oral Arts in the future.

Kind, understanding, professional staff who relieved my anxiety and examined me thoroughly, THEN came up with a comprehensive and reasonably priced plan to redeem my mouth. I have been through some dental brutality in the past and I feel confident I will be treated with care and respect in the restoration of my long neglected dental health.

Same-Day Dental Crowns With CEREC Technology

CEREC machine

A traditional porcelain dental crown involves multiple trips to the dentist and a temporary crown while a permanent crown is being created by an off-site dental lab. With the help of our in-office CEREC system, our dentists can craft a porcelain or zirconia crown in about an hour without the need for a return trip or a temporary crown.

How Are Dental Crowns Used?

Crowns can be used in a variety of restorative and cosmetic treatments. If you need to address any of the following issues, Dr. Pfister will consider whether a crown is the best solution.

Dental pain

Dental Trauma and Decay

A chipped, cracked, or decayed tooth needs treatment and protection from further damage. After making sure your tooth is free of decay and structurally sound, we can cover it with a porcelain or zirconia crown to restore its appearance and function. Our results are incredibly precise, so you'll have trouble telling the difference between your dental crown and a natural tooth.

Root Canal

Root Canal Infection

When the pulp within a tooth becomes infected, it can cause intense pain and can lead to a number of other dental issues, including the spread of infection and the possibility of tooth loss. In this case, a root canal is the best way to end dental pain and save the infected tooth. During a root canal, a dentist will clear the infected tissue from the inner chamber of the tooth and cap it with a custom-made dental crown for further protection.

Missing Tooth

Missing Teeth

Having a missing tooth can take a significant toll on your dental function and self-confidence. Our New Hartford, NY, practice offers a range of dental implant services that can revitalize your appearance and bite. Your dentist can place an implant post to replace your missing tooth roots and attach a crown after a three- to six-month healing period. Your implant will offer unmatched stability, and your crown will look natural among the rest of your teeth.

Teeth Discoloration

Tooth Discoloration

If some of your teeth have deep stains that don't respond to whitening and can't be concealed with veneers, crowns can provide a solution. Dental crowns are very effective at masking years of deep-set staining that conventional teeth whitening treatments can't address. We can precisely color-match your crowns to your natural tooth shade so that your treated teeth will blend seamlessly with your smile.  

Irregular Teeth

Misshapen Teeth

Our teeth don't always come in the way they're supposed to. Having a slightly crooked, smaller-than-normal, or otherwise misshapen tooth can make your smile look uneven and cause bite issues that may need additional dental work to correct. Covering a misshapen tooth with a crown can give your smile an attractive and proportionate appearance while protecting your bite from imbalances.

Your Comfort Is Important to Us

The dental work involved in placing a dental crown is virtually painless. You can expect to feel only gentle pressure at the treatment site thanks to local anesthesia given prior to the procedure. However, we understand that visiting the dentist makes some people anxious. 

At Aesthetic Oral Arts, your comfort is our priority. We offer oral conscious sedation, nitrous oxide, and IV sedation administered by an IV nurse, all of which can help you enter a deep state of relaxation that will make your treatment fly by. In fact, you won't likely remember the treatment once the sedation wears off.

"They make sure you are comfortable all the way through."

I recently started going to this dental practice and I could not be happier. They go to the extreme to make sure you are comfortable all the way through each procedure and my experience with Dr. Cotrupe has been extraordinary. She is very thorough and very caring and considerate concerning any anxiety or discomfort. I also recently had a somewhat emergency situation and they fit me right in so it could be taken care of. I highly recommend this practice.

Dr. Pfister and the team are awesome. I am definitely not a fan of going to the dentist (from some childhood bad experiences a million years ago), and they are patient, kind and understanding. They help me get through it and after I say to myself...that wasn't so bad! Dr. Pfister is caring and genuinely concerned. He even called me the next day to see how I was doing etc etc. Couldn't be happier with him and the whole office.

What Does a Dental Crown Cost?

A porcelain or zirconia dental crown from Aesthetic Oral Arts costs $1,100-1,200.

What About Insurance?

If your crown is being used for a restorative purpose, like protecting a damaged tooth or capping a tooth after a root canal, your insurance provider will likely help to cover the cost. If your crown is being used for a cosmetic reason, like masking tooth discoloration, it probably won't receive coverage. We accept most insurance plans, and our New Hartford office staff will happily file all the necessary paperwork with your provider to ensure you make the most out of your benefits.

Financing & In-Office Membership Plan

Our in-office membership plan helps keep treatment costs affordable, and we also offer a number of payment options through third-party financing companies. For those that qualify, payment plans through CareCredit®, Wells Fargo Financing, and local banks can help patients manage out-of-pocket expenses while getting the dental care they need.

Same-Day Dental Crown Timeline

With the incredible CEREC system, our dentists can treat a damaged tooth and place a permanent crown in just one visit to our New Hartford office. While every case is different, treatment with a same-day dental crown generally includes:

Thanks to our CEREC system, you can restore your smile in a single appointment.

Your dentist will examine your tooth to determine the best treatment option. If decay has reached the inner portion of your tooth, you may need a root canal to address the infection.

Tooth Preparation

Following treatment, the dentist will reshape and resize the remaining tooth structure to create a base for your new crown. 

Digital Impressions

Using the CEREC system, we will take digital impressions of your smile. This allows you to skip the mess of traditional impression putty.


Your new crown will be designed using digital impressions so that it will have a seamless fit with your surrounding teeth.


It takes about 20 minutes for the in-office milling machine to create your new dental crown, so you won't have to bother with a temporary crown while you wait.


Once completed, your dentist will test your new dental crown to make sure it fits comfortably within your bite. Any necessary adjustments needed to optimize your bite will be made before securing the restoration with dental cement.


You will leave our New Hartford, NY, office with a fully restored smile, free of discomfort. Some patients may experience sensitivity following treatment, but this side effect typically resolves within a couple of days.
