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.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. 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.




How long does it take to fit a dental crown?


Fitting a crown requires at least two visits maybe more to our office. Initially, we will remove decay, shape the tooth, and fit it with a temporary crown of either plastic or metal. On the subsequent visit we will remove the temporary crown, and then fit and adjust the final crown. Finally, we will cement the crown into place and you have a new beautiful looking tooth.
