Dental Crowns

 

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

How long does it take to fit a dental crown?

Fitting a crown requires two visits to our office. Initially, we will remove decay, shape the tooth, and fit it with a temporary crown.

On the subsequent visit, we will remove the temporary crown and then fit and adjust the final crown. Finally, we will permanently cement the crown into place and you have a new beautiful looking tooth.

What are the capabilities of crowns?

Many people have unexplained pain from filled back teeth, which is usually due to hairline cracks in the chewing part of the tooth. Placing crowns on these teeth can relieve 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 porcelain veneers are not. In teeth with root canal fillings, crowns can prevent breakage.
