Repairing Teeth in Brandon MS
Most dentistry looks like dentistry. Our goal is to provide dentistry that is undetectable. We can replace existing dental crowns and fillings with restorations that look and feel like your natural teeth.
Where damage to a person’s teeth is extreme, and seemingly beyond repair, we can use porcelain or porcelain “pasted on metal” crowns to make the smile appear “good as new” and natural. This is an extremely reliable technique for repairing the most severe of 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, and even the entire lifetime of the patient.
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.

What are the capabilities of crowns?
Crown and bridgework is a very reliable solution for major dental problems caused through accidents, diseases or wear and tear. Most dental problems can usually be corrected using these techniques. Material used in these repairs is either high-grade porcelain or porcelain bonded to metal. A higher strength of the porcelain and metal materials is recommended to treat the most serious of dental problems. Where accidental damage has occurred resulting in the loss of teeth, or where teeth have broken away through excessive wear or as the result of old, defective fillings breaking, dental crowns and/or dental bridges can be used as a long-term solution.
Many people have unexplained pain from previously filled back teeth, which is usually due to hairline cracks in the chewing part of the tooth. Placing crowns on these teeth can relieve the pain and allow 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 and are recommended, especially in posterior teeth.
