Most dentistry looks like, well, dentistry. Here at Amazing Smiles, our goal is to provide dentistry that is undetectable. This is why we pride ourselves on replacing existing crowns and fillings with restorations that look and feel like your natural teeth.
LONG-LASTING AND BEAUTIFUL RESULTS
Where damage to a person’s teeth is extreme, and seemingly beyond repair, we can use porcelain or porcelain-bonded-to-gold crowns to make the smile appear as good 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 long-lasting correction of major dental problems. In fact, they usually last for 20 to 30 years, which is as close to permanent as dental treatment can get.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO FIT A DENTAL CROWN?
Fitting a crown requires at least two visits to our office.
Initially, we will 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 leave you with a new beautiful looking tooth.
KEY BENEFITS OF DENTAL CROWNS
- Replaces missing teeth
- Offers support to misshapen teeth or badly broken teeth
- Looks completely natural
- Fixes the appearance of your smile as well as functional chewing problems
Crown and bridgework treatments are very reliable solutions for major dental problems caused by accidents, diseases or wear and tear.
Materials used in these repairs are 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 aesthetic 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 can prevent breakage.
