Crown & Bridge

It Used to Be Crown or Filling, Our Technology Allows Us to Provide Much More Conservative Options Before a Crown

Porcelain vs. Metal

Our crowns have NO METAL. Nothing replicates natural enamel and dentin better than porcelain. In the past, the systems for producing high-quality porcelain restorations were weaker, thus the base of the crown had to be made of metal, then porcelain was fused to that metal. That metal can show through gum tissue, leaving an unsightly dark line at the base of the tooth. With modern-day porcelain systems, metal is no longer necessary. At City South Dental, we use technology to offer our patients a more conservative option to crowns. We feel that by being more conservative, we cause less trauma to the tooth, which allows the tooth to be healthier in the long run. It’s just a better way to do dentistry. We say “no” to crowns, and we think you should, too.

Understanding the Crown & Bridge Process
  • A dental team member will escort you back and take x-rays.
  • Your doctor will perform a comprehensive oral examination and develop a treatment plan for your individual needs.
  • Once your crown & bridge needs have been established, the dental team will discuss price ranges, materials and tooth colors with you.
  • After reviewing your options, you can select the crowns which are best for you.
  • You may be scheduled back for a crown preparation at a later date, depending on your needs.

Most frequent questions and answers

If you have been told by your dentist that you need a crown, we strongly recommend you seek a second opinion, unless you already have a crown on that tooth. 

At City South Dental, we have more conservative options for restoring teeth. There are more options than just a filling or a crown. We don’t have to grind your teeth down to nubs in order to give you the smile you deserve.

A crown was the only treatment option available to fix teeth that have been cracked, decayed or filled with mercury, until very recently. Conservative porcelain fillings, known as inlays and onlays, have eliminated the need for aggressive procedures of the past. Studies prove that the use of inlays and onlays not only fix cavities but also fortify the tooth and promote full restoration.

Some dentists have been practicing the same way for a long time. For decades they have used crowns as the main treatment option for their patients. It takes a lot of time and money to deliver industry-leading treatments. For these reasons some practices do not incorporate inlay and onlay procedures, but at City South Dental, minimally invasive treatments are the ONLY option for maximum patient comfort. We invest in technology and we strive to deliver the best dental care for our patients. We say yes to premium, quality care and NO to crowns.
