When damage to a person’s teeth is extreme, and apparently beyond repair, we can use dental crowns to make the smile and one’s appearance very natural. This treatment is used for a long-lasting correction of major dental problems.

We are renowned for the quality of our work and the fantastic changes we make for people using this treatment as well as the cutting-edge technology we offer at our office.

What Are Crowns Made Of?

Materials for crowns include porcelain or porcelain bonded to gold. These are extremely reliable materials for repairing the most severe dental problems, offering a complete smile while establishing a functional bite. Gold crowns can also be used when aesthetics are not a concern.

Stones Family & Cosmetic Dentistry can help you find the dental crown option that you need.

How Long Does This Treatment Take?

In most other dental offices, fitting a crown normally requires at least two visits to the office and includes the discomfort of wearing an inconvenient temporary crown until the permanent crown is fitted. This process can take up to two full weeks or longer!

Introducing CEREC Technology!

At Stones Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we have invested in the latest technology to provide you with a superior one-visit experience. CEREC is the world’s foremost system for the fabrication of all ceramic dental restorations in a single office visit.

With CEREC technology at Stones Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, you can be in and out in a single visit with a permanent, all-ceramic crown! We can even use this technology to produce onlays and veneers!

CEREC doesn’t work for all cases and scenarios. As a result, some crowns will still be made with a two appointment process.

What Are the Capabilities of Crowns?

Dental crowns are a very reliable solution for major dental problems caused through accidents, diseases, or wear and tear. Major problems can usually be corrected using this technique. Materials used in these repairs are either high-grade porcelain, porcelain bonded to gold, or gold.

The strength of the porcelain and gold materials is recommended to treat the most serious of dental problems. A crown is a great long-term solution for teeth that have severe wear, fractures, or large fillings that are failing.

Key Benefits of Dental Crowns

Crowns offer a number of benefits, and we can share those benefits with you when you choose Stones Family & Cosmetic Dentistry to place your dental crowns.

Your unique crowns:

  • Offer support to misshapen or badly broken teeth.
  • Look completely natural.
  • Enhance your smile.
  • Restore functional chewing problems.
  • Replace large fillings to aid in strengthening the tooth.

Many people have unexplained pain from filled back teeth, which have large older fillings. This is usually caused by fine hairline cracks on the chewing surface of the tooth. Placing crowns on these teeth relieves the pain and allows a return of full dental function.

In front teeth, older fillings can both weaken the teeth and cause aesthetic problems due to staining or chipping. Porcelain crowns are suitable in cases where porcelain veneers are not.

In teeth with root canal fillings, dental crowns can prevent the teeth from breaking. This ensures that your teeth stay protected from the type of infection that made the root canal necessary in the first place.
