Dr. Lester’s goal is to provide dentistry that is undetectable. She replaces existing crowns and fillings with restorations that look and feel as close to your natural teeth as possible.
Dr. Lester uses CEREC materials including eMax and other types of porcelain to make your smile appear as natural as possible. Although gold crowns may not be as aesthetic as porcelain, there are times in which they may be a better clinical choice. Crowns are a reliable solution for repairing dental problems and restoring a healthy, functional bite. Dr. Lester is renowned for the quality of her work, and crowns can last for 15 to 20 years, which is as close to permanent as treatment can get.
Many people have unexplained pain from teeth with large fillings, which can be due to 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.
In teeth with root canal fillings, crowns can prevent breakage.
Dr. Lester can recommend the best crown for your individual circumstance.
