Our goal is to provide dentistry that feels and looks natural. We replace existing dental crowns and fillings with restorations that look and feel like your own teeth.
When damage to a person’s teeth is significant, we can use porcelain or gold crowns to replace the decayed, cracked and worn surfaces, and make the smile appear like new. We are renowned for the quality of our work and the fantastic changes we make for people using this technology. These treatments are used for a long-lasting correction of major dental problems.
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 and cracks in the tooth, shape the tooth accordingly, take an impression of the tooth to be sent to the dental lab and fit it with a temporary crown made of acrylic resin.
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 to restore the function and appearance of your mouth.

What are the capabilities of crowns?
Crown and bridgework is a very reliable solution for major dental problems caused through accidents, diseases or wear and tear. Major problems can usually be corrected using these techniques. The material used in these repairs is typically porcelain, however gold materials may be recommended to treat areas of severe wear and erosion.
Many people have inexplicable pain from back teeth with large fillings, which is usually due to hairline cracks in the chewing parts of the tooth. Placing crowns on these teeth tends to relieve this pain and allows for a return of full dental function to these teeth. In front teeth, older fillings can both weaken the teeth and cause “appearance” problems due to staining or chipping. Porcelain crowns are suitable in cases where porcelain veneers will not work. In teeth with root canal fillings, crowns can prevent breakage of those teeth.
