Crowns

Most dentistry looks like dentistry. Our goal is to create undetectable dentistry. We replace existing crowns and fillings with restorations that look and feel like natural teeth. If a tooth is beyond repair, we can use porcelain or porcelain fused to metal crowns to enhance your smile. This extremely reliable technique for repairing the most severe dental problems can permanently replace missing teeth to offer a complete smile and a functional bite.

How long does it take?

Fitting a crown requires at least two visits to our office. Initially, we will remove decay, shape the tooth, and fit it with a temporary crown of either plastic or metal. On the subsequent visit, we will remove the temporary crown, and then fit and adjust the final crown. Finally, we will cement the crown into place and you'll have a new beautiful tooth. Crown and bridgework is a very reliable solution for major dental problems caused by accidents, diseases, or wear and tear. We can generally correct major problems with crowns or bridgework. The material we use is either high grade porcelain or porcelain bonded to gold. A higher strength of the porcelain and gold materials is recommended to treat serious problems. For lost or broken teeth, crowns and/or bridges offer a long-term solution.

Many people have unexplained pain from fillings in back teeth; this is usually due to hairline cracks in the chewing part of the tooth. Placing crowns on these teeth relieves the pain and allows full dental function to return. In front teeth, older fillings can weaken the teeth and cause appearance problems due to staining or chipping. Porcelain crowns and bridges are suitable in cases where porcelain veneers are not. In teeth with root canal fillings, crowns can prevent breakage.
