Porcelain crowns are an affordable way to restore a damaged or decayed tooth, giving you back your beautiful smile!Book Now
Modern dentistry offers more options than ever to help you restore and maintain an optimal level of health. While the strength and beauty of materials continue to advance, the skill of the practitioner makes a significant difference. Dr. Peter Roukema and Dr. Kyle Henry use the latest techniques, bringing even the most damaged mouths back to full health.
Sometimes teeth are damaged because of cavities, heavy bite forces, or trauma. If a root canal is needed to salvage a compromised nerve, the tooth may be especially fragile. Dental crowns, or caps, allow these teeth to be rebuilt and covered with materials that mimic nature. Not only are most “capped” teeth indistinguishable from natural teeth, but they're also extremely secure and comfortable.
Crowns can be crafted to repair a single tooth, multiple teeth (including the entire mouth), or in conjunction with dental implants to fill a space. In fact, when missing teeth enter the equation, special consideration might be given to placing a dental bridge or implants.The Process Assessment

Once your case is planned, it will take about two appointments before you leave with a fully restored tooth. At the first visit, the teeth are gently prepared. Next, Dr. Peter Roukema and Dr. Kyle Henry send your case to a specialized lab to create a dental masterpiece. A temporary crown allows you to function normally until the permanent crown arrives for placement. This typically takes 2-3 weeks.
After hours of custom craftwork in the lab, you'll return for a second appointment. Dr. Peter Roukema and Dr. Kyle Henry will try-in and evaluate the appearance and fit of the crown before bonding it into place. Minor adjustments to your bite and a final polish leave you with one of the finest restorations in dentistry.
