Dental Crowns – Colorado Springs CO
Dental Crowns look and feel like your natural teeth
Most dentistry looks like dentistry. Our goal at Craig Parlet, D.D.S. Family Dentistry, is to provide dentistry that provides optimal function and esthetics. We replace existing crowns and fillings with restorations that feel like your natural teeth.
Where damage to a person’s teeth is extreme and apparently beyond repair, we can use porcelain or porcelain fused to metal crowns to make the smile appear “as 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. See our Smile Gallery. These treatments are used for a long-lasting correction of major dental problems. It is usual for these treatments to last up to 20 years, which is as close to permanent as dental treatment can get.
How Long Does It Take?
Fitting a crown can now be done in one office visit with the use of our E4D Dentist® in house milling and fabrication process. Your crown (or inlay or onlay) can be permanently placed during the same appointment so, you can avoid the hassle of wearing a temporary crown. 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.

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 repairs are either high-grade porcelain or porcelain bonded to gold. The higher strength of the porcelain and gold materials is recommended to treat the most serious of dental problems. Where accidental damage has occurred resulting in lost teeth, or teeth have broken away through excessive wear, or as the result of old fillings breaking, crowns and/or bridges can be used as a long-term solution.
Many people have unexplained pain from filled back teeth that is 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 for these teeth. 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.
