Dental Crowns

When a patient has fractured a tooth, has a large cavity, or a large filling that is breaking down, a crown may be indicated.  we use porcelain crowns that are beautiful and help protect the teeth. This is an extremely reliable procedure for repairing a plethora of dental problems.

How long does it take to fit a dental crown?

Fitting a crown typically requires two visits to our office. Initially, we will remove decay, shape the tooth, and fit it with a temporary crown.

On the subsequent visit, we will remove the temporary crown, fit and adjust the final crown, and cement the crown into place

Key Benefits of Dental Crowns

What are the capabilities of crowns?

Crown and dental bridges are a very reliable solution for many dental problems caused through accidents, diseases, or wear and tear. Many problems can usually be corrected using these techniques. Material used in these repairs is usually a high-grade porcelain.  Where damage has occurred, resulting in lost teeth, or where teeth have broken down through excessive wear, or as the result of old fillings breaking, dental crowns and/or dental bridges can be used as a long-term solution.  In teeth with root canal fillings, crowns can prevent breakage.
