Our goal is to provide dentistry that is undetectable. We replace old dental crowns and fillings with restorations that look and feel like your natural teeth.
For large restorations, crowns can be used to cover the tooth and recreate your natural smile. They can correct damage from large cavities and fracture lines and provide support to misshapen or broken teeth. Crowns can replace missing teeth to provide an aesthetic look and functional bite. They provide a longer lasting solution to restore or improve your smile and can ease functional chewing problems. In front teeth, older fillings can both weaken the teeth and cause “appearance” 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.
what to expect at our office
It is important to us that we maximize both the aesthetics and long-term health of your dentition. Fabricating a crown requires two visits to our office. During the initial visit, Dr. Kraft will remove any decay, shape the tooth, and then fit the tooth with a temporary crown.
During the next visit, Dr. Kraft will remove the temporary crown and try in the final crown. When the patient is satisfied, she will cement the final crown into place, leaving a new natural-looking and fully functional tooth.
