We know how tough it can be when you need dental work but don’t wish for it to be noticeable. That’s why we do our very best to provide work that only you will know is there. We can replace any crowns and fillings you may already have with restorations that everyone else will think are your natural teeth.
Some of our patient’s teeth are extremely damaged when they come to us and we have many options to restore them back to beauty and function. We offer metal-free Zirconia or e.max crowns as well as the old fashioned porcelain or porcelain fused to gold crowns.
Dental crowns offer the following:
Set aside at least two dental visits when you want to have us fit you for a crown. First, we will remove any decay that is in the way and shape your tooth. While you wait for the permanent crown, we will fit you with a temporary resin or acrylic crown. Your next visit will have us removing the temporary crown and replacing it with the final crown. We will adjust it so that it is comfortable and then cement it into place. You’ll have a beautiful new tooth in no time.
If you have major dental work that you would like to have done because of a disease, accident, or wear and tear, crowns and bridgework can be a very reliable fix. Any major problem can typically be corrected with these techniques. The material used for crowns and bridgework can include zirconia, e.max, porcelain, porcelain fused to gold or gold. Crowns and bridges are an excellent solution for damage that may have occurred through accidents, or for teeth that have become chipped and broken through wear and tear.
Additionally, we have taken care of patients who have dealt with unexplained pain radiating from back teeth that were previously filled. This may occur when a hairline crack appears in the tooth in the area where you bite down. A crown that is placed over that tooth will not only stop the pain, it will allow you to easily chew again with no discomfort. Old fillings in the front teeth may also weaken, causing chipping and staining to occur. A porcelain crown or a bridge is more appropriate than porcelain veneers in these cases. Crowns can also prevent a tooth that has undergone a root canal from breaking.
