Dental Crowns

Most dentistry looks like “dentistry”. 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 damage to a person’s tooth is extreme, and apparently beyond repair, we can use 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. Crowns are used for a long lasting correction of major dental problems.

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 will have a new beautiful looking tooth.

What are the capabilities of crowns?

Crowns and bridgework are reliable solutions or major dental problems caused through accidents, decay, old fillings breaking, or wear and tear.

Many people have unexplained pain from back teeth with fillings, which is often due to hairline cracks in the chewing part of 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 and bridges are suitable in cases where veneers are not. Crowns are often used to protect teeth that have had root canals.
