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 may be beyond repair, we can use porcelain or porcelain “pasted-on-gold” crowns to make the smile appear like new. This is an extremely reliable technique for repairing the most severe 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:

  • Replaces missing teeth.
  • Offers support to misshapen teeth or broken teeth.
  • Looks completely natural.
  • Repairs smile and functional chewing problems.

What are the capabilities of crowns?

Crown and bridgework are very reliable solutions for major dental problems caused by accidents, diseases, or wear and tear. Major problems can usually be corrected using these techniques. Materials used in these repairs are 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 dental problems. In instances where damage has occurred resulting in the loss of teeth, where teeth have broken away through excessive wear, or tooth damage caused by old fillings breaking down, crowns and/or bridges can be used as a long-term solution.

Many people have unexplained pain from filled back teeth that is are 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. 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.

Our Latest Patient Testimonial

Dr. Over repaired my two 26-year old implants and now they are like my own teeth. He was able to use the existing implants and make new individual teeth for them. They never were as good as they are now. I would highly recommend him to anyone with implants or problems with their existing implants. He will be installing another tooth on a new implant I am having installed on October 23 of this year. It is well worth the trip to Eugene for excellent, highly professional treatment. The office staff is wonderful and puts me at ease on each visit.

From the moment I walked into the office I was greeted by a cheerful and helpful person at the front desk. From then on, each person I came in contact with was equally accommodating and a pleasure to be around. The entire office feeling is Professional yet they are able to make you feel comfortable and make you feel like they truly care and want to help you. I can’t say enough about Dr. Over, immediately upon meeting him I felt comfortable and cared about. I have no doubt that my continued experience with Dr. Over and his very professional and knowledgeable staff will be a good one and given all that I need done, I’m very happy that my confidence level is very high and stress/fear level is very low.
