We strive to provide undetectable dentistry. We replace existing crowns and fillings with restorations that look and feel like your natural teeth.
When damage to a person’s teeth is extreme and beyond repair, we can use porcelain or porcelain “pasted on gold” crowns to make the smile appear “as new.” This technique reliably repairs the most severe dental problems. Crowns can even permanently replace 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.
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 of either plastic or metal. On the subsequent visit, we will remove the temporary crown and 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

What are the capabilities of crowns?
Crown and bridgework is a very reliable solution for major dental problems caused by accidents, diseases, or wear and tear. These techniques can usually correct major problems. Material used in these repairs is either high-grade porcelain or porcelain bonded to gold. A higher strength of the porcelain and gold material is recommended to treat the most serious of dental problems. When accidental damage, excessive wear, or broken fillings damage teeth, crowns and/or bridges can be used as a long-term solution.
Hairline cracks in the chewing part of the tooth can cause pain in filled back teeth. Placing crowns on these teeth relieves the pain and allows these teeth to return to full dental function. 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. Crowns can also prevent breakage in teeth with root canal fillings.
