Our goal is to provide dentistry that is undetectable. Our goal is to complete dental crowns and fillings with restorations that look and feel like your natural teeth.
Where damage to a tooth is extreme or beyond repair, often a crown can be used to make it appear “as new”. This is an extremely reliable technique for repairing the most severe of dental problems, even improving your smile and providing a functional bite. This treatment can be used for a long-lasting correction of major dental problems, and it is not unusual for crowns to last for decades, which is as close to permanent as dental treatment can get.
How long does it take to get a dental crown?
Completing a crown normally requires at least two visits. Initially, the doctor will remove decay, shape the tooth, and fit it with a temporary crown but aesthetic crown. On the subsequent visit, the final crown is fitted, adjusted, and cemented permanently into place. You then have a new beautiful looking tooth!
Key Benefits of Dental Crowns

What are the capabilities of crowns?
Crown and bridgework can also be solutions for major dental problems caused through accidents, diseases or wear and tear. Where accidental damage has occurred resulting in lost teeth, or where teeth may have cracked or broken, dental crowns and/or bridges can be used as a long-term solution.
Many people have unexplained pain from filled back teeth, which may be caused by hairline cracks in the chewing part of the tooth. Placing crowns on these teeth can relieve 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 may be suitable in cases when porcelain veneers are not. In teeth with root canal fillings, crowns can also prevent future breakage and issues.
