Stunning Same-Day Results With CEREC Technology

We're able to offer same-day crowns thanks to CEREC®, a cutting-edge system for the design and creation of dental prosthetics. CEREC technology offers the opportunity for a high degree of customization, ensuring your new crown will look and feel just like your natural teeth.

Your dentist will take a 3D digital impression of your smile using an oral scanner that captures thousands of images in just seconds. These images will be processed with our CAD (computer-aided design) technology, which will use them to create a blueprint for your dental crown. This blueprint will be transferred to our modern milling machine, which can fabricate a restoration from a block of high-grade dental ceramic in a matter of minutes. You won't need to bother with temporary crowns before enjoying your new smile.

Looking for That Hand-Finished Touch? We Work With a Prestigious Dental Lab

We also offer traditional crowns crafted in a laboratory. If you choose this option for treatment, your digital impressions will be sent to a dental laboratory that partners with Redlands Family Dentistry. We stand behind the outstanding quality of their work, and patients are often amazed by their final results. Trained technicians will craft your crown with the highest degree of expertise and precision, and you'll receive your finished product in just a few weeks.

Why You'll Love Redlands Family Dentistry

Our friendly team and excellent care make us the go-to dental practice for many happy patients in the Redlands and San Bernardino areas. When choosing us for your dental crowns, you'll enjoy:

A Personal Focus

Making your time with us a positive experience is our number-one priority. Our team is here to make sure you're treated like family from the moment you first walk through our door. We'll help you navigate treatment with honesty and compassion and work with you to best address your individual needs. We've built lasting relationships with many patients and welcome the opportunity to get to know you.

A Welcoming Office

Our practice is situated in a converted historic house on Brookside Avenue, specially designed to feel more like you're visiting a friend's home than a dental office. In our waiting area, you'll find a cozy fireplace, complementary coffee, and freshly baked cookies. Our goal is to keep your treatment relaxing, too. We have Apple TV available in every treatment room, so your time in our dental chair will fly by.

Flexible Financing

Dental crowns used for restorative purposes are commonly covered by insurance, and we accept most plans. However, if you're receiving cosmetic crowns, are uninsured, or are paying for your treatment out-of-pocket, you may be wondering how to keep your crowns affordable. We work with CareCredit®, a healthcare lender that provides low- or no-interest loans with manageable monthly payments.

"I am a dentist, so I know a lot about quality service." A Great Review From a Local Professional

I chose Dr. Hoffer as my dentist because he does exceptional dentistry.  He does not just provide a service to his patients, he cares for his patients like family. The professionalism and friendliness of his whole team is outstanding.  Today while I was getting a crown done, there was a cancelation on the schedule. I was asked if I wanted to get my teeth cleaned while I waited a few minutes while the crown was being made, and the convenience was so appreciated. Dr. Randall Hoff - 2022

Dental Crowns Have Many Uses

You can receive a dental crown to treat a tooth that is:

Chipped front tooth


Teeth that are weakened by chips, cracks, or decay often require protection from additional harm. A dental crown fits securely over a compromised tooth to improve function and greatly decrease the risk of further damage.

Discolored tooth

Cosmetically Flawed

Crowns are commonly used to conceal aesthetic dental flaws, like small gaps between the teeth, minor issues with shape or size, or deep-set staining. You can receive just one crown or an entire set to dramatically transform your smile and boost your confidence in your appearance.

Root canal

Undergoing a Root Canal

If an infection has reached the inner part of your tooth, a root canal is the best way to restore your health and end your dental pain without extraction. Contrary to popular belief, modern techniques and technology have made this procedure quick and virtually painless. After your dentist eliminates the infection, they'll seal the inner chamber of the tooth and fit it with a protective dental crown for added strength and stability.

Missing tooth


Replacing a missing natural tooth with a dental implant and crown offers unparalleled stability for your bite. We can place dental implants at our Redlands office and fit them with custom dental crowns after a four- to six-month healing period. You'll be able to wear a natural-looking temporary crown in the meantime. We can also replace a missing tooth with a dental bridge. Your bridge will be composed of an artificial tooth, called a pontic, and two dental crowns that cap the natural teeth on either side. Our CEREC system can create a gorgeous dental bridge with a highly precise fit.

The Very Best Materials For the Very Best Results

Dental crowns

Not all dental crowns are equal in quality. We want your crown to provide excellent function and maintain a gorgeous appearance for many years to come, so we use only the top dental materials to create our restorations.

You can choose an IPS e.max®, IPS Empress®, zirconia, or porcelain crown. All of these materials are incredibly durable and can be color-matched to your natural teeth. After treatment, many patients say they have trouble telling the difference between their restoration and the real thing.

The Dental Crown Timeline

Initial Consultation

Visit our Redlands, CA, office so your dentist can conduct a thorough examination of your teeth and determine if crowns are the right treatment for you. We might also recommend preparatory dental work, like a root canal or periodontal cleaning, at this step. 

Shaping the Teeth

Your dentist will reshape the natural tooth structure to create a solid foundation for your dental crown. This process is gentle and can typically be completed with just local anesthesia.

Digital Impressions

We'll use a digital oral scanner to capture precise images of your teeth, gums, and the surrounding structures without the added time and mess of traditional dental putty. 

Designing the Crown

Your dentist will use your scans to design a digital model of your new permanent crown. If you choose a lab-created crown, we'll send your scans and model to our partner lab and fit you with a comfortable temporary crown while you wait. If you're going to receive several crowns at once, we can create a wax-up model to show you how your restorations will look alongside your natural teeth.

Crown Fabrication

Our CEREC milling machine will use your digital model to shape your e.max, Empress, zirconia, or porcelain crown from a small block of dental ceramic. It can take only a few minutes to create a permanent crown that's an exact replica of your optimized model. If you instead choose a traditional crown milled at our partner lab, it will be carefully checked by their technicians for accuracy.

Placing the Crown

Your permanent crown will be secured to your tooth with medical-grade cement. Your dentist will check that your crown fits comfortably and looks indistinguishable from the rest of your smile. If your dental crown needs an adjustment, we can quickly fine-tune the model and create a new restoration in our in-house dental lab.
