The highest quality cosmetic dentistry never gets noticed. When we replace existing crowns and fillings with updated restorations, we leave you dental restorations that no naked eye could distinguish from your natural teeth at a glance.
Porcelain Crowns or Porcelain Fused to Metal Crowns (porcelain “pasted on gold” crowns) revitalize even teeth seemingly damaged beyond repair through dental craftsmanship that has even permanently restored smiles and functional bites hampered by missing teeth. We stand by traditional, proven treatments for long-lasting corrective restorations known to endure virtually permanently for over 20 to 30 years with proper care. The renowned quality of our work is owed in part to applying dentistry’s most current technology and techniques to miraculously reshape complete, vibrant smiles.
During the first of the two office visits typically required to properly fit a crown, we will prepare the affected tooth by removing decay (if needed) before shaping the tooth and fitting it with a provisional plastic crown.
Your next visit begins with removing the provisional crown, so that we can fit and adjust the final, “permanent” crown. Once we cement it into place, it will look as though you’ve grown a new perfectly healthy, natural tooth.
Patients with smiles and functional bites significantly damaged through accidents, diseases are natural wear are ideal candidates for crown and bridgework. The vast majority of dentists will recommend the high-strength gold-bonding and porcelain materials traditionally used in crowns to remedy the significant damage incurred by lost or broken-away teeth, fillings broken by age, and teeth broken down by excessive wear.
Patients with filled, hairline-fractured back teeth have often relieved unexplained pain from their structural damages regained their full, natural dental functions by having crown placed. Porcelain crowns and bridges can also relieve the weakening, staining or chipping of front teeth by older fillings even more effectively than porcelain veneers and prevent breakage caused by root canal fillings.
