A lot of dentistry looks exactly like what it is–dentistry. We want to provide dentistry that is invisible to the unknowing eye. We’re aiming to replace existing crowns and fillings with restorations that closely resemble, and even feel like, natural teeth.
In cases where damage to a person’s teeth is considerable and even appears beyond repair, we use porcelain or porcelain “pasted on gold” crowns to improve that smile to the point that it appears as good as new. This technique is quite reliable for fixing severe dental problems and permanently replacing missing teeth for a full smile and healthy bite. By using this technology, we’ve earned the respect of countless patients who have undergone fantastic changes. The goal of these treatments is to make long-lasting corrections. These treatments may last between 20 and 30 years, making them as long-lasting as possible.
How Long is The Process?
The process of fitting a crown takes at least two appointments in our office. The first thing we’ll do is remove decay, shape the tooth, and fit it with a temporary crown made of either metal or plastic.
On the next visit, we’ll remove the temporary crown in order to fit and adjust the final crown. Finally, we cement the crown into place and you’re left with a new beautiful tooth.

What Can Crowns Do For Me?
For major dental problems caused by accidents, diseases, or wear and tear, crown and bridgework serve as very reliable solutions. High-grade porcelain or porcelain bonded to gold is used to make these repairs as effective as possible. Stronger porcelain and gold materials are recommended to treat those with the most severe dental problems.
Crowns and bridges can serve as long-term solutions in situations where accidental damage has occurred, where teeth have broken away through excessive wear, or as the result of old fillings breaking.
Many people experience unexplained pain from fillings performed on their back teeth. This pain is usually the cause of hairline cracks in the chewing part of the tooth. With the help of crowns placed on these teeth, the pain will be relieved and full dental function will be restored. Older fillings in front teeth can weaken while causing appearance issues for the patient because of staining or possible chipping. In cases where porcelain veneers are not suitable, porcelain crowns and bridges can do the job. Crowns can also prevent breakage in teeth with root canal fillings.
