Dental Crowns

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 person’s 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.

Key Benefits of Dental Crowns

  • Replaces missing teeth
  • Offers support to misshapen teeth or badly broken teeth
  • Looks completely natural
  • Fixes “smile” and functional chewing problems

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.

Sometimes I grip my hands from past fear but I truly feel so comfortable as she explains everything and checks to see if im ok throughout procedures. The staff is so warm and inviting. I recommend this office to everyone!

We have been going to the same dentist for over 20 years and were hesitant to change dentists, especially since our kids have been going to them since they were two. However, after a visit with Dr. Mercado and her staff, I'm happy to say that our family is transferring to Monarch Dentistry! Not only is the office beautiful, you can tell that everything was handpicked with the patients' comfort in mind - from the beverage bar to the memory foam dental chair to the monitors on the walls and ceilings and everything in between. They also have state of the art equipment with a 3D xray machine and an instrument that takes pictures while she's examining your mouth so you can see exactly what she's seeing and visually track changes. I don't know when our previous dentist will obtain these types of equipment, but I'm not waiting to find out! The entire staff is very friendly and considerate. Scheduling appointments is easy, and their text reminders are much needed as I do tend to forget appointments. My mom and I both need extensive dental care and, before any major services are rendered, Dr. Mercado consulted with us to discuss which options work best for us both financially and schedule-wise. The consultations were very informative, and we left knowing exactly what procedures needed to be done, how long they would take and how much they would cost. They were also very knowledgeable about insurance processes and made recommendations based on our benefits as well as plan year coverage. During mom's 3-hour procedure, Dr. Mercado often checked to make sure mom was comfortable and even massaged her jaw and cheeks regularly. The evening after her procedures, Dr. Mercado called personally to check up on mom. We never received a call from our previous dentist. Needless to say, mom was quite pleased with the services and doesn't hesitate to tell her friends about her experiences with Dr. Mercado. She's trying to talk my dad into going next. Dr. Mercado and Staff: Mom and I would like to thank you all so much for your patience and kindness and for taking such excellent care of us! Until next time...
