Dental Crowns Chapel Hill NC
Most dental work appears to be dental work. We want to offer dentistry that is invisible. We use restorations that resemble your natural teeth in place of any dental crowns or fillings that may already be present.
We can employ porcelain or porcelain “pasted on gold” crowns to restore severely damaged teeth that appear to be beyond repair and restore the smile to “as new.” This is a very effective method for treating even the most serious dental issues, including replacing missing teeth in a permanent manner to provide a full grin and functioning bite. We have a great reputation for the caliber of our work and the amazing transformations we bring about for people who use our technology. These procedures are used to permanently fix serious dental issues. These procedures often have a lifespan of 20 to 30 years, making them as close to permanent dental care as is possible.
How long does it take to fit a dental crown?
It takes at least two trips to our office to properly fit a crown. In the beginning, we will clean out the decay, shape the tooth, and fit it with a temporary metal or plastic crown.
When you return, we’ll take off the temporary crown and fit and adjust the permanent one. Finally, we will set the crown in place with cement, giving you a brand-new tooth with a stunning appearance.

What are the capabilities of crowns?
Major dental issues resulting from trauma, illness, or wear and tear can often be resolved through crown and bridgework. These methods are typically effective in fixing significant issues. These repairs are made using either high-grade porcelain or porcelain that has been bonded to gold. The most severe dental issues should be treated with porcelain and gold materials of a higher strength. Dental crowns and/or dental bridges can be used as a long-term treatment in cases when teeth have been accidentally damaged and lost, worn away excessively, or as a result of fractured fillings.
The chewing portion of many people’s filled back teeth often has hairline fissures that are the cause of their unexplained pain. By putting crowns on these teeth, the discomfort is reduced and their complete dental function is restored. Older fillings in front teeth can weaken the teeth as well as lead to “appearance” issues like discoloration or chipping. In situations where porcelain veneers are ineffective, porcelain crowns and bridges are an option. Crowns can stop teeth with root canal fillings from breaking.

Dental Anxiety and Phobia
FEAR OF DENTAL WORK?
Up to 75% of Americans have some level of dental phobia, and 20% choose not to get their teeth cleaned as a result. We want you to know that our top goal is making you feel safe and at ease while visiting our office. Dental phobias and anxieties can manifest in many different ways, and each person has different fears. Dental anxiety can range from minor to serious, and it frequently manifests as a generalized feeling of fear and dread when anticipating a forthcoming surgery.
