Our goal is to provide dentistry that is functional, aesthetic and with the right materials, undetectable. We replace existing crowns and fillings with restorations that look and feel like your natural teeth.
Where damage to a person’s tooth is extreme and apparently beyond repair, we can use porcelain or porcelain “bonded to gold” crowns to make the smile appear “as 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 the fantastic changes we make for people using this technology. These treatments are used for a long-lasting correction of major dental problems. It is not unusual for these treatments to last for 20 years, which is as close to permanent as dental treatment can get.
How Long Does It Take?
Fitting a crown requires at least two office visits. Initially, we will remove decay, shape the tooth, and fit it with a temporary crown that is tooth colored.
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.

What Is The Capability Of A Crown?
Crowns and bridgework are a very reliable solution for major dental problems caused through accidents, diseases, or wear and tear. Major problems can usually be corrected using these techniques. Materials used in these repairs are either high-grade porcelain or porcelain bonded to gold or another ceramic core. The highest strength is still have gold under the porcelain rather than the ceramic. The higher strength of the porcelain and gold materials is recommended to treat the most serious of dental problems. Where accidental damage has occurred resulting in lost teeth, or teeth have broken away through excessive wear, or as the result of old fillings breaking, crowns and/or bridges can be used as a long-term solution.
Many people have unexplained pain from large fillings on the back teeth that is usually due to hairline cracks in the chewing part of the tooth. Placing crowns on these teeth usually relieves the pain and allows a return of full dental function for these teeth. In front teeth, older fillings can both weaken the teeth and cause appearance problems due to staining or chipping. Porcelain crowns and bridges are suitable in cases where porcelain veneers are not. In teeth with root canals, crowns can prevent breakage and are considered the normal treatment in conjunction with root canal therapy.
