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.
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. Where damage to a person's teeth is extreme and apparently beyond repair, we can use “all porcelain” or “porcelain fused-to-metal" crowns to make the smile appear "as new". This is an extremely reliable technique for repairing the most severe dental problems, even permanently replacing missing teeth to offer a complete smile and a functional bite.
Many people have unexplained pain when biting hard or crunchy foods. This may be from 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 porcelain veneers are not. In teeth with root canal fillings, crowns are placed prevent breakage.
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. It is not unusual for these treatments to last up to 20 to 30 years, which is as close to permanent as dental treatment can get.
All porcelain crowns are the most realistic appearing tooth restorations available in dentistry today. Some insurance companies do have a benefit for all porcelain crowns, while others will only provide benefits for porcelain fused-to-metal crowns.
Fitting a crown requires at least two office visits. 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 have a new beautiful looking tooth.
