What are dental crowns?
Most dentistry looks like dentistry. Our goal is to provide dentistry that is undetectable. We offer porcelain crowns and white fillings that look and feel like your natural teeth.
Where damage to a person’s teeth is extreme, and apparently beyond repair, we can use full porcelain or porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM crown) to make the smile appear “as new”. This is an extremely reliable technique for repairing the most severe of dental problems, even permanently replacing missing teeth to offer a complete smile and a functional bite. We are renowned and praised for the quality of our work and the fantastic changes we provide to our patients. 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, shape the tooth, and send you off with a temporary crown. Depending on your tooth structure, we may be able to our technology to “scan” your tooth instead of the traditional “goop” you may have experienced. On the subsequent visit, we will remove the temporary crown and fit your crown prior to final delivery. At this visit, we aim to provide you with a new beautiful looking tooth.
