Our goal is to provide cosmetic dentistry that is undetectable. We replace existing crowns and fillings with restorations that look and feel like your natural teeth.
Tooth damage can be extreme and apparently beyond repair. We can use porcelain or porcelain “pasted on gold” crowns to make the smile appear “as new.” We use a highly 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 tremendous 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 is a Dental Crown Procedure?
Fitting a crown requires at least two visits to our office. Initially, we will remove decay, shape the tooth, and match it with a temporary crown of either plastic or metal.
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. If you are interested in our methods when performing this, see our details about our laughing gas usage. We are happy to make you feel confident when visiting our dental office.

What are the capabilities of crowns?
Crown and bridgework are reliable solutions for major dental problems caused by accidents, diseases, or wear and tear. Major problems can usually be corrected using these techniques. The material used in these repairs is either high-grade porcelain or porcelain bonded to gold. A higher strength of the porcelain and gold materials is recommended to treat the most severe dental problems. Where accidental damage has occurred, resulting in broken or lost teeth through excessive wear, crowns or bridges can be used as a long-term solution.
How To Know if You Need a Dental Crown?
Many people have unexplained pain from filled back teeth, usually due to hairline cracks in the chewing part of the tooth. Placing crowns on these teeth relieves the pain and allows a return of full dental function for these teeth. Older fillings in front teeth can 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. In teeth with root canal fillings, crowns can prevent breakage.
