We replace damaged teeth and existing crowns with restorations that look and feel like your natural teeth.
Crowns are long-term solutions to broken, damaged or discolored teeth.
Crowns are very reliable solutions for major dental problems caused through accidents, diseases, root canals, or wear and tear. Material used in these repairs can be high-grade porcelain, or porcelain bonded to high noble metals. Dr . Kindt will let you know which type of crown will work best for chewing and biting strength as well as a beautiful natural look in your mouth.
Many people have unexplained pain from filled back teeth, which can be 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. Because of the difference in strength, porcelain fused to high noble metal crowns and bridges are suitable in cases where porcelain crowns are not. In teeth with root canal fillings, crowns can prevent breakage.
Our goal is to provide you with a natural-looking smile. Where damage to a persons teeth is extreme, and apparently beyond repair, we can use porcelain or porcelain fused to high noble metal crowns to make the smile appear natural. 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.
Fitting a crown requires at least two visits to our office. Initially, we 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.
