Dental Crowns

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. A crown is an indirect restoration that is cemented on a tooth to strengthen a tooth that has had extensive decay or damage to the tooth. There are many different kinds of crowns. Our dentists try to conserve as much of the natural tooth structure as possible. We believe in partial (inlays/onlays), veneers, and full coverage crowns depending upon what is left of the remaining tooth structure. Sometimes we even have to make bridges, which are full crowns attached to one another to close a space for a missing tooth.

Fillings Vs. Crowns

Where damage to a person’s teeth is extreme, and apparently beyond repair, we can use porcelain or porcelain “pasted on gold” crowns 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 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. It is usual for these treatments to last for 20 to 30 years, which is as close to permanent as dental treatment can get.
