Most dentistry looks like dentistry. Our goal is to provide dentistry that is undetectable. We replace existing dental crowns and fillings with dental crown 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 crowns fabricated in one hour to make the smile appear “as new”. The use of Cerec® technology is an extremely reliable technique for repairing the most severe of dental problems. We are renowned for the quality of our work and the fantastic changes we make for people using Cerec® dental crown technology. These treatments are used for a long lasting correction of major dental problems. It is usual for these dental crown treatments to last for 20 to 30 years, which is as close to permanent as dental treatment can get, restoring your complete smile and a functional bite.
Dental Crown Procedure
Fitting a crown requires a single visit to our office. Initially, we will put the tooth to sleep using the Wand computer-controlled local anesthetic delivery system, to remove decay, shape the tooth, and fit it with a porcelain crown fabricated in one hour using a single solid block of porcelain. Once the dental crown is fabricated it is then fitted and adjusted to the shape and contour of your existing teeth thus restoring the strength and beauty of your original teeth.
On the subsequent visit we will remove the temporary crown, and then fit and adjust the final crown. Finally, we will cement the dental crown into place and you have a new beautiful looking tooth.
Key Benefits of Crown and Bridges

What Are the Capabilities of Dental Crowns?
Crown and bridgework is a very reliable solution for major dental problems caused through accidents, diseases or natural wear and tear. Major problems can usually be corrected using these techniques. Material used in these repairs is either high-grade porcelain, or porcelain bonded to metal. A higher strength of the porcelain materials is recommended to treat the most serious of dental problems. Where accidental damage has occurred, resulting in lost teeth, or where 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 filled back teeth, which is usually due to hairline cracks in the chewing part of the tooth. Placing crowns on these teeth 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 canal fillings, crowns are imperative to prevent breakage of previous root canal teeth.
