Our goal is to provide dentistry that is undetectable. We replace existing crowns and fillings with restorations that look and feel like your natural teeth, when needed.
Where damage to a person’s teeth is extreme, and apparently beyond repair, we can use porcelain or porcelain “fused on gold” crowns to make the smile appear “as new”. This is an extremely reliable technique for repairing the most severe of dental problems, even permanently replacing missing teeth to offer a complete smile and a functional bite. We are renowned for the quality of our work and the fantastic changes we make for people using this technology. These treatments are used for a long-lasting correction of major dental problems.
How long does it take to fit a dental crown?
Fitting a crown requires at least two visits to our office. Initially, we will remove decay or fractured tooth or filling, 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 have a new beautiful looking tooth.
What are the capabilities of crowns?
Crowns are a very reliable solution for major dental problems caused through fractures, decay or wear and tear. Material used in our crowns are either high-grade porcelain or porcelain fused to gold.
Many people have unexplained pain from filled back teeth, which is usually due to hairline cracks or fractures in the tooth. Placing crowns on these teeth relieves the pain and allows a return of full dental function for these teeth. In front teeth, older fillings can both weaken the teeth and cause “appearance” problems due to staining or chipping. Porcelain crowns are suitable in cases where porcelain veneers are not. In teeth that have been treated with a root canal, crowns are recommended to prevent breakage.
