Dental Crowns

Most dentistry looks like dentistry. Our goal is to provide dentistry that is undetectable. We 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 apparently beyond repair, we can use porcelain or porcelain “pasted 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.

How long does it take to fit a dental crown?

Fitting a crown requires at least two visits to our office. Initially, we will remove decay, shape the tooth, and fit it with a temporary crown of either plastic or metal.

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.

Key Benefits of Dental Crowns

  • Fixes “smile” and functional chewing problems

What are the capabilities of crowns?

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

Dr. Morghem and her team are the best! I used to have a lot of anxiety about going to the dentist. Before I had my first appointment with Dr. Morghem, I hadn't seen a dentist in 7 or 8 years. Needless to say, I had some work to get done. Dr. Morghem instantly put me at ease; she is very warm and welcoming and normalized my feelings of guilt and fear about my dental health. She is gentle, explains everything as she goes, and seems to genuinely love what she does. My crown and inlay came out beautifully; both were done in one visit. Olga is also great; she does the best cleanings and keeps you laughing while providing tips and encouragement to improve your oral health. Sunset Dentistry is also very high-tech. I got to see my whole jaw in 3D! Thank you for everything, Dr. Morghem, and see you soon!

Wonderful experience. Emergency visit while on vacation due to temporary crown falling out. Took me quickly and did a beautiful job reattaching my temporary. Will definitely recommend to my son who lives local.
