Most dentistry looks like dentistry. At The Pampered Tooth, our goal is to provide dentistry that is undetectable. We replace existing crowns with restorations that look and feel like your natural teeth, like pampered teeth!
Crowns are 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.
At The Pampered Tooth, we are known 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–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 you have a new beautiful looking tooth.
What’s the difference between porcelain and ceramic crowns?
Porcelain crowns are the most aesthetic (pleasing to the eye), as they can be designed to specifically match your other teeth through specific shading and translucence.
BruxZir® Zirconia crowns were developed as an aesthetic alternative to metal-containing crowns. They are some of the strongest crowns made today, are similar in color and translucency to natural dentition, and are specifically recommended for molars and for patients who grind their teeth. They are resistant to chipping and present with a glazed, smooth surface that reduces plaque accumulation.
e.max® is the #1 all-ceramic restoration used today to correct discolored or stained teeth; crooked teeth; chipped or cracked teeth; and decayed teeth. These all-ceramic dental crowns and restorations are natural looking and contain no metal.
The first step in this decision-making process is to see what we’re dealing with, so take that first step. Call our office to set up your initial consultation!
