Crowns

Our goal is to provide you with dentistry  that look and feel like your natural teeth. If your teeth have been extremely damaged and beyond repair, we can use all porcelain or porcelain bonded metal crowns to make the smile appear "as new". This is an extremely predictable way for rehabilitating the most severe dental problems. Dr. Sreter, the well known Jerusalem dentist, can permanently replace missing teeth to restore  your smile and chewing ability. 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 or longer. Dr. Sreter,  has observed this among his patients since 1977.

How Long Does It Take?

Fitting a crown requires at least two office visits. Initially, we will remove decay, shape the tooth, and fit it with a plastic temporary 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. In esthetically challenging or more complex cases there may be additional visits of shade matching and esthetic shaping to achieve a superb result.

What Is The Capability Of A Crown?

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. Materials used in these procedures are either high-grade porcelain, zirconium, or porcelain bonded to metal.  The higher strength of the porcelain bonded to metal or zirconium is recommended in most cases of oral rehabilitation. When teeth have been lost or are severely damaged crowns and/or bridges can be used as a long-term solution.

Many people have unexplained pain from back teeth.  Sometimes this may be due to hairline cracks in the biting surface of the tooth. Placing crowns on these teeth relieves the pain and allows a return to comfortable chewing. In front teeth, old and chipped fillings can both weaken the teeth and cause esthetic staining problems. Porcelain crowns and bridges can solve many of these esthetic challenges. In teeth with root canal fillings, crowns can prevent additional damage or fracture of the teeth.
