Full Coverage Crowns
All Porcelain Crowns
All porcelain crowns are an excellent option for front teeth. All porcelain Crowns can wear down opposing teeth slightly more than metal or resin ones, but all zirconia crowns compare favorably in strength and offer metal-free alternatives with no risk of discoloration over time.

At this point, an implant can be immediately placed and allowed to integrate, or the site can be allowed to heal, and then the implant can be placed surgically within that healed dental ridge. Both options must consider the amount of bone present to successfully identify the appropriately sized implant and then decide if additional healing time would benefit the overall success of the implant. If the implant meets primary stability values, the standard is to place a custom tissue former and allow the implant to integrate into the bone for approximately three months.
More About Dental Implants
Suppose the stability standards or bone amounts or quality are less than ideal. In that case, the implant will be sutured over and allowed to “sleep” or integrate into the bone without opening the oral cavity. This minimizes external forces or bacteria from creating issues with the implant’s bone integration and overall success. Additional time for healing may be appropriate in these less-than-ideal situations.
Once the implant has been integrated, and it is determined that the implant is completely stable, an impression will be taken to fabricate a custom abutment, which is the attachment portion to the implant above the gingival tissue, and a crown, which is either screwed down to the abutment and implant or cemented onto the abutment. Similar processes occur with multiple implants. However, these processes vary significantly as more implants are involved in the overall treatment.
Orthodontic treatment can help correct your bite and provide you with a beautiful smile! The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children receive an orthodontic screening at 7-years-old, but it’s not too late for adults to achieve their perfect teeth. We offer traditional orthodontics (metal braces) as well as Clear Correct aligners for both kids and adults.
During a root canal procedure, we’ll clean out the infected pulp and disinfect the canals of your tooth. Once this area has been cleaned to prevent any future infections from occurring, it will be filled with special material for healing purposes designed to restore function.
