Dental Problems? See Where You Can Get a Same-Day Smile

Atlas Dental Specialists is the only office in downtown Pittsburgh to offer same-day all-ceramic crowns for patients.


Family-owned Atlas Dental Specialists has served the area with state-of-the-art services and a friendly environment for the past 25 years. In addition to many other offerings, the office is the first and only in downtown Pittsburgh to use CEREC technology.

CEREC stands for "Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics," and at Atlas Dental, chairside is meant literally — Drs. Nicholas and Mara Mangini offer beautiful, all-ceramic crowns for their patients on the same day as their appointment.

Before CEREC technology, getting a new crown involved multiple appointments over the course of two to three weeks. Now, a new crown can be completed in a single visit — in about only two hours.

First introduced to the dental world in 1985, CEREC crowns offer many benefits over the original method. With CEREC technology, there’s no need for gooey, uncomfortable impressions; an intra-oral camera is used to scan the necessary teeth. There is no need for a temporary crown while you wait for the permanent one to come back from the lab, and there is no cost increase to have a crown made in a single visit.

CEREC crowns also save more of your natural tooth structure, look and feel just like your natural tooth and are metal-free and all ceramic, so there won’t be any darkness at your gum line.
