Most dentistry looks like dentistry. Our goal is to provide dentistry that is undetectable. We replace existing dental crowns and fillings with restorations that look and feel like your natural teeth.
Where damage to a person’s teeth is extreme, and apparently beyond repair, we can use porcelain or porcelain fused to zirconia crowns to restore damaged or compromised teeth to make the smile appear “as new”. This is an extremely reliable technique for repairing a simple defect to more severe dental problems, even permanently replacing missing teeth to offer a complete smile and a functional bite. We take great pride in the quality of our work and the fantastic changes we make for people using the most advanced materials and techniques.
How long does it take to fit a dental crown?
Fitting a crown requires two visits to our office. Initially, we will remove decay, shape the tooth, make impressions and fit the prepared tooth with a temporary crown. 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.
Key Benefits of Dental Crowns

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 zirconia. 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, dental crowns and/or dental bridges have been historically utilized in dentistry 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.
