Dental Crowns and Onlays
A “cap”, “jacket” or “crown” will restore a broken, heavily filled or cracked tooth to its original size and shape. A tooth crown may also be recommended after root canal therapy has been completed if the tooth has become brittle and is more susceptible to fracture. Dental crowns can strengthen and protect the remaining tooth structure and improve the appearance of your teeth.
An onlay is a more conservative form of a tooth crown. With an onlay more tooth structure is preserved while the tooth is protected. Many different types of materials may be used for dental crowns and onlays including: gold, porcelain-fused high noble metal, metal-free all-ceramic and fiber reinforced polyglass.
Our porcelain crowns are specially fashioned to look just like real teeth. Porcelain provides the crown with the same light reflecting properties as natural teeth. Porcelain crowns will give your smile a realistic look while they restore its feel and function.
“Being hesitant to go through the whitening and recapping of my two front teeth, I was reluctant to have the work done. I’ve been very pleased with the decision. The difference between the before and after is very pleasing.”
– William B., Las Vegas
Old, large silver fillings that have caused teeth fractures can be replaced with natural color fillings, onlays or crowns. We can restore your broken tooth or make a new tooth crown for you in the SAME VISIT with CEREC® 3D Technology! This tooth crown process takes about one hour.
Non-removable dental bridges can restore your teeth to their normal level of functionality by filling the gaps in your smile. A dental bridge will improve the entire health of your mouth by keeping the surrounding teeth in position and can also help maintain the structure of your face and jaw.
Dental bridges are replacement teeth fused to dental crowns or implants. The dental crowns or implants are placed on either side of a gap where teeth are missing, and the replacement teeth then “bridge” that gap!
Dental bridges can quickly boost the quality of your life. They make it easier to talk and chew, and they make it more fun to smile and laugh. Dental bridges will keep your smile safe and beautiful for years to come.

“For many years I have gone to many dentists and never have really been happy with any of them. At my last dentist, I had a bridge made. They never could get it to fit right. It always hurt after wearing it for 5 to 10 minutes. After going to your office I felt very well taken care of. You explained everything step-by-step, from all the x-rays, crowns, caps, and bridge. I am very happy with my new smile and teeth. All your staff is very nice and caring, and your office is very clean and comfortable. I recommend you and your staff to all my friends and family. Thank you for everything.”
