Repair Dental Damage
A dental crown is a restoration that we can use to protect a tooth. We often place crowns for patients who have encountered extensive tooth decay, or who have fillings that are too big to restore again, or to strengthen a tooth following root canal therapy, or for teeth that are heavily cracked. Dental crowns serve to protect you from further pain, discomfort, or damage by completely covering your damaged tooth. We can take care of your smile restoration in as little as two visits. We will prepare your teeth and take impressions during the initial visit, then place your final restoration during a follow-up visit.
No Metal Required
Other area dental offices are still using metal in their dental crowns. It’s true that metal-based crowns are strong, but there are other problems patients who have these type of crowns often develop a gray-colored line near their gum-line. That’s why we are using a variety of materials, including all-porcelain and zirconia, for a durable and lifelike solution that you can be proud to show off.
We can make strong crowns that can last for years, even decades. But the truth is that your crown will likely not be around forever. A crown can fail on account of poor oral health, sudden trauma, or a crack or break. As long as there is enough healthy tooth beneath the crown, though, we can replace the bad crown with another crown.
Implants Are An Option
Damaged or missing teeth can make you feel self-conscious. They can also prevent you from eating the foods you love, and the ones that keep you healthy. A dental implant can change all that, for the better.
This type of treatment can be used to replace a missing tooth, several teeth, or even to stabilize a set of dentures. Implants are one of the most sought-after replacements because they function like real roots, and are almost as strong. And they can be restored with dental crowns so that they look just like your natural teeth.
We have a cone beam CT scanner that provides detailed 3-D images and helps us plan each step of your restoration procedure. Plus, we also offer free dental implants consultations, so you’ve literally got nothing to lose!
