Most dentistry looks like dentistry. Our goal is to provide dentistry that is undetectable, functional, and esthetically pleasing. We replace existing crowns and fillings with restorations that look and feel like your natural teeth.
Where damage to a person’s teeth is extreme and may be beyond repair, we can use porcelain or porcelain fused to metal crowns to make the smile appear like 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. 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 usual for these treatments to last for 20 to 30 years, which is as close to permanent as dental treatment can get.
How long does it take to fit a dental crown?
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.
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.
Key Benefits of Dental Crowns:
- Offers support to misshapen teeth or broken teeth.
- Looks completely natural.
- Repairs smile and functional chewing problems.
What are the capabilities of crowns?
Crowns are very reliable solutions for major dental problems caused by accidents, diseases, or wear and tear. Major problems can usually be corrected using these techniques. Materials used in these repairs are either high-grade porcelain or porcelain bonded to gold. In instances where damage has occurred resulting in the loss of teeth, where teeth have broken away through excessive wear, or tooth damage caused by old fillings breaking down, crowns can be used as a long-term solution.
Many people have unexplained discomfort in teeth that is usually due to hairline cracks in the chewing portion of the tooth. Additionally, older fillings can both weaken the teeth and cause appearance problems due to staining or chipping. Placing crowns on these teeth will relieve the pain and allow a return of full dental function.
