Dental Crowns

A crown is an aesthetic covering or a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over another tooth or implant to provide it stability. Crowns are generally used to improve the strength or appearance of teeth. When a large cavity threatens the ongoing health of a tooth, a crown is a good option. Crowns are also used to restore the shape and size of chipped or damaged teeth. They are typically bonded to the tooth using dental cement.

We offer a wide variety in dental crowns and ensure you receive the best possible dental care from the minute you walk through our doors.

When is a dental crown required?

You might need a crown for any of the following circumstances:

  • To cover discolored or misshapen teeth
  • To support a tooth with a large filling
  • To cover a dental implant
  • To support a worn out, cracked or broken tooth

There are several types of Dental Crowns to choose from

In our office we offer several options of different materials for Dental Crowns. We offer porcelain, gold and semi-precious, Lava and Bruxir crowns, and Zirconia crown materials.

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are false permanent teeth that are used for filling dental gaps caused by missing teeth. They are usually anchored to the adjacent healthy teeth with cement and resin or metal bands. There are three types of dental bridges – fixed, cantilever, and resin bonded. The quality of the teeth, position of the dental gap, and condition of the teeth at the two sides of the gap decide which type of dental bridge is suitable to replace the missing teeth.

Different types of dental bridges are available in a wide budget range. As it is a safe way to substitute replacement tooth for a better denture profile, convenience, appropriateness, and proper fittings are essential pre-requisites for quality bridge fitting. The cost of Dental bridges may therefore vary depending on the material, position of the bridge placement, etc.

COVID-19 update:

Patients and friends, due to the government mandated shutdown declared in the state of Kentucky – hospitals performing elective surgeries as well as dental offices, we will be closed the majority of this week.

This week we will be open for EMERGENCIES ONLY (see our Facebook page for what defines a dental emergency, or call our office, check our website for updates) on Thursday Morning April 9th. We will require you to complete a questionnaire and speak with a team member or the doctor before we will be able to see you.

Dental emergencies if not addressed can become life threatening (untreated dental infection can lead to swelling, sepsis, and airway issues) so it is necessary to treat certain conditions at this time, which is why we are still offering limited emergency hours. We want to do our part to keep people out of the Emergency Room at this time. We thank our front line healthcare workers out battling this Virus in the hospital and want to help keep dental issues/infections out of the Emergency Room.

These hours will change on a week to week basis as this is a Novel situation that none of us have ever dealt with before. Continue to check Facebook for updates and please wait in the car if you do have to come in for an emergency dental treatment.

We want to assure our patients we are abiding to the highest level of sterilization protocol and following all CDC guidelines as well as the recommendations of the American Dental Association and the Kentucky Dental Association.

We want to comply with social distancing but are still available during the aforementioned hours to care for patients with URGENT AND EMERGENT DENTAL NEEDS. If you have a cleaning scheduled until April 10th, it is cancelled and will be re-scheduled when business hours go back to their customary times.

Thanks everyone, stay safe, stay home, wash your hands, and let us know if you need us.
