We provide the highest quality custom made porcelain crowns available by our ceramicist. Many people believe they have received a porcelain crown, when in fact a “porcelain fused to metal” crown has been provided. Sometimes the metal can create an allergic reaction in the tissue due to the nickel in the metal. This reaction is found more often in women than men, and does NOT happen with our all porcelain crowns.
We also prefer all porcelain crowns because less tooth structure is removed during preparation. The only other material we use for crowns is gold. Gold is an incredibly strong and flexible material. Inexpensive gold crowns can also cause tissue irritation and allergeric reactions.
Make sure to be aware of what metals are used in your crown.
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped "cap" that is placed over a tooth-- covering the tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and/or to improve its appearance. The crowns, when cemented into place, fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line.
Usually at least two visits are necessary. The dentist will remove the outer portion of your tooth, then make an impression to provide an exact model of the prepared tooth. Temporary crowns are placed while the permanent crown is made. On the second visit, the permanent crown is put in place and adjusted as necessary.
On average, dental crowns last between 5 and 15 years. The life span of a crown depends on the amount of "wear and tear" the crown is exposed to, how well you follow good oral hygiene practices, and your personal mouth-related habits (you should avoid such habits as grinding or clenching your teeth, chewing ice, biting your fingernails and using your teeth to open packaging).
While a crowned tooth does not require any special care, remember that simply because a tooth is crowned does not mean the underlying tooth is protected from decay or gum disease. Therefore, continue to follow good oral hygiene practices, including brushing your teeth at least twice a day and flossing once a day-especially around the crown area where the gum meets the tooth.
Veneers quickly give you a beautiful smile by covering stained, chipped, or gaps in teeth. Usually a porcelain laminate protects the tooth's surface while improving aesthetics.
We create removable, permanent, and implant-retained dental appliances, including partial and full dentures, using modern materials to design affordable dentures that fit perfectly.
Dental implants provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. Eat virtually anything plus implants help solve denture problems.
We offer the latest in technology combining implants with dentures that simply lock-in to place perfect for your lower jaw. Fully removeable and say good bye to glues or adhesives.
