Crowns and Bridges

A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens teeth that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.

Although there are several types of crowns, porcelain, tooth-colored crowns are the most popular, because they resemble your natural teeth. They are highly durable and will last many years. Porcelain crowns are made to match the shape, size, and color or your teeth giving you a natural, long-lasting, beautiful smile.

Reasons for crowns:

      • Broken or fractured teeth
      • Cosmetic enhancement
      • Decayed teeth
      • Fractured fillings
      • Large fillings
      • Tooth has a root canal

What does getting a crown involve?

A crown procedure usually requires two appointments. Your first appointment will include taking several highly accurate molds (or impressions) that will be used to create your custom crown. A mold will also be used to create a temporary crown which will stay on your tooth for approximately two weeks until your new crown is fabricated by a dental laboratory.

While the tooth is numb, your dentist will prepare the tooth by removing any decay and shaping the surface to properly fit the crown. Once these details are accomplished, your temporary crown will be placed with temporary cement and your bite will be checked to ensure you are biting properly.

At your second appointment, your temporary crown will be removed, the tooth will be cleaned, and your new crown will be carefully placed to ensure the spacing and bite are accurate.

Sure wish I had found them earlier!! I had a periodontist that did gum surgery on me for 13,000.00; I had to wait for my gums to heal a few months and because that Periodontist would not work with my previous dentist I had to find a new dentist for the tooth part after the implant. I went in to interview Dr. Krause (dentist) & found the office and staff exceptional AND I got a quote for the implants at HALF the cost from his partner Dr. Taylor (periodontist)!! I can only imagine how much money I would have saved on the initial surgery, I feel violated by the first periodontist. I had the implants yesterday and painless with the exception of the numbing shots initially and no pain today. Affordable Quality Care!

"I've always gotten the best service from Dr Schweizer, everyone at the office is very knowledgeable and professional, all the staff is very friendly. Since moving down to Florida, Dr Schweizer has been the only dentist I've had, which has been about 30 years. I don't think I would feel comfortable seeing any one else."
