Our goal is to provide dentistry that does not look like dentistry. We can 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 seemingly beyond repair, we can use crowns to restore undermined tooth structure. This is a reliable technique for repairing the most severe of dental problems, returning fractured or heavily decayed teeth back into service. We are renowned for the quality of our work and use a quality dental laboratory to fabricate your restoration. These treatments are used for a long lasting correction of dental problems. It is not unusual for crown to last for as much as 20 to 30 years, which is as close to permanent that dental treatment can get.
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 next visit, we will remove the temporary crown and fit and adjust the final one. Finally, we will cement the crown into place and you'll have a new beautiful looking tooth.
Crown and bridgework is a very reliable solution for major dental problems caused through accidents, disease, or wear and tear. Material used in these repairs is either high-grade porcelain, porcelain bonded to gold or gold alone. The higher strength of the porcelain fused to metal and gold materials may be recommended to treat the most serious of dental problems.
