Dental Crowns

Our goal is to provide dentistry that is undetectable. We can replace existing dental crowns and fillings with restorations that look and feel like your natural teeth.

Where damage to a person’s teeth is extreme, and beyond repair, we can treat those teeth with gold or porcelain crowns to make their mouth and smile appear “as new”. This is an extremely reliable technique for repairing severe dental problems or 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.  Dental crowns are used for a long-lasting correction of major dental problems and can last for 10 to 15 years when well cared for with good brushing and flossing.

How long does it take to get a dental crown?

Fitting a crown requires at least two visits to our office. Initially, we will remove decay, build the tooth up where there was decay or the tooth was broken, shape the tooth, and take an impression of the prepped tooth.  The impression will be sent to a dental lab to fabricate your custom crown.  In the meantime, we will place a temporary crown that you will have for approximately two weeks.  

On the second visit, we will remove the temporary crown and then fit and adjust the final crown. Finally, we will cement the crown into place and restore your tooth.

What are the capabilities of crowns?

Crown and bridgework is a very reliable solution for major dental problems caused through accidents, diseases, or wear and tear. Major problems can usually be corrected using these techniques. Material used in these repairs is usually gold, porcelain, or a combination of the two.  Where accidental damage has occurred, resulting in lost teeth, or where teeth have broken down through excessive wear and tear, dental crowns and/or dental bridges can be used as a long-term solution.

Some people have unexplained pain or pain when chewing in a tooth.  This is usually due to hairline cracks in the tooth. Placing a crown 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 and cause staining or chipping. Porcelain crowns and bridges are suitable in cases where porcelain veneers are not.  In teeth with root canals, crowns can prevent breakage.
