Dental Crowns

Our goal is to provide dentistry that is undetectable. We replace existing dental 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 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. 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.

How long does it take to fit a dental crown?

About 80% of our dental crowns are done with CEREC technology. It utilizes eMax for the most durable and esthetic crown available in modern dentistry. We allow 2 hours to make an eMax crown via CEREC. About 45 minutes of that time is “free time” for the patient while the crown is being made.

There are some situations where Dr. Knollman may recommend a traditional gold crown, a porcelain fused to metal crown, or a zirconia based crown. In these circumstances, the crown will require two visits to our office. Initially, we will remove decay, shape the tooth, and fit it with a temporary crown. An impression will be sent to a lab to make your crown which will usually be ready in two weeks. 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 are the capabilities of dental crowns?

Crown and bridgework is 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. Material used in these repairs is either high-grade porcelain, or porcelain bonded to gold. A 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 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 teeth veneers are not. In teeth with root canal fillings, dental crowns can prevent breakage.
