Dental Crowns Fort Mill SC
Natural-Looking Tooth RestorationAt Monarch Dentistry of Gold Hill, our goal is to provide dentistry that is undetectable, avoiding dentistry looks like dental work. We replace existing dental crowns and dental 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

- 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.

Patient Review by Vernon N
Everyone was GREAT. I learned there is so much more to a dental exam than just a couple of x-rays and a look around by a dentist. I have never had so much important information explained to me. Dr. Mercado took her time, and I can't compliment her enough for that. Then another star is Bridgette who scheduled me and is a great people person, went through all the paperwork with me and I thank her for her patience.. The entire team was so professional, great atmosphere, very neat offices. A top notch dental care facility.

As in all of my previous visits at this facility, my experience has always been very good. I have complete trust in Dr. Teresa Mercado's ability to handle my dental needs. Her assistants and staff are, also, very good.

Dr. Mercado and her staff are excellent. She is very thorough, precise and did an awesome job with several procedures over a 3+ hour session. She is extremely knowledgeable and makes the patient feel at ease.

Patient Review by Vickie M
The difference between Dr. Mercado and my previous dentist ( of 20 years) is night and day. I have never had dental procedures beyond 6-month cleanings and the occasional filling replacement. Dr. Mercado takes photos of each tooth, and can show you exactly what she discovered during the exam. When she says there is a stress crack in a tooth, or periodontal disease and to what degree, she is able to show the photo documenting this. If you're serious about preserving your teeth Monarch Dentistry can provide whatever is needed.

Patient Review by Johanna W
I was impressed with the initial counseltation. During my procedure, The dental assistant was very attentive and concerned about my well-being. She gave me music and a blanket to sooth me. The dentist was very thorough and detail oriented. I have a lot of saliva so the sucky thing was my friend. The dentist jokingly asked if I needed one to take home. The Dentist explained every step of the procedure and even showed me pictures of each step. They got my jokes which was amazing. I have a dry sense of humor. I would highly recommend this Dentist.

Patient Review by Shari T
It's NEVER fun to have a bite block in while you have a 2+ hour procedure done, but between the netflix on the ceiling TV and the great concern for my physical comfort that Dr.Mercado and her staff ALWAYS exhibit, it wasn't too bad! AND, it's a whole lot better than having a broken tooth hurting 24/7!
