The best dentistry looks natural. Our goal is to provide dental transformations that are nearly undetectable. As a highly respected prosthodontist, Dr. Chiou can replace existing crowns and fillings with restorations that look and feel like your natural teeth.
Where damage to a person’s teeth is extreme and may be beyond repair, we can use porcelain or porcelain crowns to make the smile appear like new. This is an extremely reliable technique for repairing the most severe dental problems, even permanently replacing missing teeth to offer a complete smile and a more functional and healthy bite. We are renowned for the quality of our work and the fantastic changes we make for people through the use of state-of-the-art technology. Crowns are used for a long-lasting correction of major dental problems.
What is the purpose of getting a crown?
Crowns and bridgework are very reliable solutions for major dental problems caused by accidents, diseases, or wear and tear. Major problems can usually be corrected using these techniques. 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 dental problems. In instances where damage has occurred resulting in the loss of teeth, where teeth have broken away through excessive wear, or tooth damage caused by old fillings breaking down, crowns can be used as a long-term solution.
How would I know if I might need a dental crown?
Many people have unexplained pain from filled back teeth that is are 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. In front teeth, older fillings can both weaken the teeth and cause appearance problems due to staining or chipping. Porcelain crowns are suitable in cases where porcelain veneers are not.
