Dental Crowns in Willmar

Restoring & Repairing Teeth

Some dentistry looks like dentistry. Our goal is to provide dentistry that is undetectable. When necessary, we sometimes must replace outlived restorations with more supportive restorations.

Older crowns or older large restorations can with time become weakened by recurrent decay or just wear out. These can often be replaced with new life-like Crowns ( or caps) that are durable, and look and feel like your own teeth!

Where damage to a person’s teeth is extreme, and apparently beyond repair, we can often use porcelain or porcelain fused on gold crowns to make the smile appear as new. This is 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.

We are renowned for the quality of our work and the fantastic changes we make for people using this technology. These treatments are used for a long-lasting correction of major dental problems. It is usual for these treatments to last for 20 to 30 years, which is as close to permanent as dental treatment can get.

Don’t Wait Any Longer to Fix Your Teeth!

How long does it take to fit a dental crown?

Fitting a crown usually requires two visits to our office. Initially, we will remove decay, shape the tooth, take an extremely accurate impression of the tooth, and fit it with a temporary crown of either plastic or metal. The impression is sent to one of our high-quality labs, where they carefully form the permanent crown.

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 are the capabilities of crowns?

ADA video discussing dental crowns

Crown and bridgework is a very reliable solution for major dental problems caused by accidents, diseases, or wear and tear. Major problems can usually be corrected using these techniques.

The material used in these repairs is 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 of dental problems.

Where accidental damage has occurred, resulting in lost teeth, or where teeth have broken away through excessive wear, or as the result of old fillings breaking, dental crowns and/or dental bridges can be used as a long-term solution.

Many people have unexplained pain from filled back teeth, which is usually due to hairline cracks in the chewing part of the tooth. This pain whether when chewing or in contact with hot or cold can be irritating.

Placing 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 crowns and bridges are suitable in cases where porcelain veneers are not. In teeth with root canal fillings, crowns can prevent breakage.
