Crowns are very reliable solutions for major dental problems caused by accidents, diseases, or wear and tear. In instances where damage has occurred resulting in the loss of teeth, where teeth have broken away through excessive wear, or tooth damage caused by old fillings breaking down, crowns can be used as long-term solutions. Many people have unexplained pain from filled back teeth that is are 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. In front teeth, older fillings can both weaken the teeth and cause appearance problems due to staining or chipping. Porcelain crowns are suitable in cases where porcelain veneers are not. In teeth with root canal fillings, crowns can prevent breakage.
Our goal is to provide dentistry that is undetectable. We can replace existing crowns and fillings with restorations that look and feel like natural teeth. If damage to the teeth is extreme and beyond repair, we use porcelain or porcelain “pasted-on-gold” crowns to make the smile appear like new. This is an extremely reliable technique for repairing the most severe 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 for the fantastic changes we can make for people using this technology. These treatments are used for a long-lasting correction of major dental problems because it is not unusual for these treatments to last 20 to 30 years.
