Most dentistry looks like dentistry. Our goal is to provide dentistry that is undetectable. We replace existing crowns and fillings with restorations that look and feel like your natural teeth.
We are renowned for the quality of our work and the fantastic changes we make for people using this technology. In many cases, a same-day crown may a great restoration for you. It is made out of laboratory quality porcelain while you wait and eliminates the need for impressions, temporaries and a second delivery appointment.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO FIT A DENTAL CROWN?
Fitting a crown requires a single visit for our CAD-CAM crowns or two visits for more complex cases. Initially, we will remove decay and shape the tooth. If you are having a same day crown, it will be made while you wait. If not, we will fit 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.
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. 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 serious of dental problems. Where accidental damage has occurred, resulting in lost teeth, or where teeth have broken away through excessive wear, or as the result of old fillings breaking, crowns and/or bridges can be used as a long-term solution.
Many people have unexplained pain from filled back teeth, which is 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. In front teeth, older fillings can both 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.
