Our friends at the American Dental Association say, “If you want a smile that’s your crowning glory, you may need a crown to cover a tooth to help restore it to its normal shape and size.” Dental crowns can make your teeth stronger and improve their appearance.
Where damage to a person’s teeth is extreme, and apparently beyond repair, we can use porcelain or porcelain “fused to gold” crowns to make the smile appear “as new”. A good analogy we use for a crown is it’s like a “helmet for your tooth”. This is an extremely reliable technique we frequently use at our practice 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 work performed for our patients in Oshkosh and beyond. Dental crowns are used for a long-lasting correction of major dental problems.
Crown and bridgework is a very reliable solution for major dental problems caused through accidents, diseases or wear and tear. Many people have unexplained pain from filled back teeth, which is usually due to hairline cracks in the chewing part of the tooth. Placing dental 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 dental crowns and a dental bridge are suitable in cases where porcelain veneers are not. In teeth with root canal fillings, crowns can also prevent breakage.
Our doctors and team will discuss a suitable plan and associated costs with you during an initial consultation.
