Dental Crowns

Tooth repair in Greenwood IN

Most dentistry looks like dentistry. Our goal is to provide dentistry that is undetectable. We replace existing crowns and fillings with restorations that look and feel like your natural teeth.

Where damage to a persons teeth is extreme, and apparently beyond repair, we can use porcelain or porcelain pasted on gold crowns to make the smile appear as new. This is an extremely reliable technique for repairing the most severe of dental problems, even permanently replacing missing teeth to offer a complete smile and a functional bite. We are renowned for the quality of our work and the fantastic changes we make for people using this technology. These treatments are used for a long-lasting correction of major dental problems. It is usual for these treatments to last for 20 to 30 years, which is as close to permanent as dental treatment can get.

How long does it take to fit a dental crown?

Fitting a crown requires at least two visits to our office. Initially, we will remove decay, shape the tooth, and fit it with a temporary crown of either plastic or metal.

On the subsequent visit, we will remove the temporary crown and then fit and adjust the final crown. Finally, we will cement the crown into place and you have a new beautiful looking tooth.

What are the capabilities of crowns?

Crown and bridgework is a very reliable solution for major dental problems caused through accidents, diseases or wear and tear. Major problems can usually be corrected using these techniques. Material used in these repairs is either high-grade porcelain or porcelain bonded to gold. A higher strength of the porcelain and gold materials is recommended to treat the most serious of dental problems. Where accidental damage has occurred, resulting in lost teeth, or where teeth have broken away through excessive wear, or as the result of old fillings breaking, crowns and/or bridges can be used as a long-term solution.

Many people have unexplained pain from filled back teeth, which is usually due to hairline cracks in the chewing part of the tooth. Placing crowns on these teeth relieves the pain and allows 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. Porcelain crowns and bridges are suitable in cases where porcelain veneers are not. In teeth with root canal fillings, crowns can prevent breakage.

I always have a great experience when I come here. I don't mean the staff was just nice to me; I mean they go above and beyond. You feel like a part of their family when you go in. Every girl is so sweet and friendly. They care about you and open up about themselves. My latest cleaning was done by Autumn and she was just the sweetest person ever. Thank you all for helping me feel relaxed and taken care of. This is hands down my favorite environment when it comes to having an appointment. Keep up the great work!

I was recommended to Dr. New by a friend, when Dr. New was just building her practice. In fact on my first appointment, Dr. New retrieved me from the waiting room (I didn't find out until later she was the dentist!). I've had some horrific experiences at the dentist office in the past and of course was skeptical of a new dentist. I have to say Dr. New is the BEST! She has made me feel comfortable from the first visit, and even though I moved further away, I will NOT change dentist. From the receptionist to Dr. New the entire staff is nice, accommodating and professional. They also have a sense of humor, which you don't always find in a dentist office. I highly recommend this office to anyone, whether you've had a bad dental experience or don't mind going to the dentist.

I have spent a decent amount of time in the dentist chair throughout my life and I can honestly say that at A New Smile, I have received some of the best care from the friendliest staff. I won't go anywhere else.

I was very afraid and nervous before my first appointment with Dr. New's office, but my daughter had been several times and had reassured me that Dr. New and her staff were the most gentle dental technicians she had ever seen. I had put off going to a dentist for many years, as I had not had any visits that did not result in a lot of pain and anxiety for me. However, I made an appointment for consultation regarding replacement of my partials and a cleaning. During all the procedures I have had, I was NEVER in any pain - during administration of the numbing shots or during the actual procedure(s). It was the most serene experience at a dentist that I have ever experienced. I almost fell asleep during an extraction - that is how relaxed and comfortable I was. I am a patient for life and highly recommend Dr. New and her staff to anyone - especially someone who is a nervous patient or who does not like dentists. Trust me - you will not be uncomfortable at all and will be a returning patient like my daughter and I.
