Crowns in Concord NH
At Freese & Bengtson Family Dentistry it is our goal to achieve esthetic restorations which appear and feel lifelike. With current technology we are able to replace existing failed crowns and fillings with restorations that look and feel like your natural teeth.
When damage to a person’s teeth is extreme, needing more significant support, we can use porcelain crowns or porcelain fused-to-gold crowns to make their 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 well-known 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.
How long does it take?
Preparation of 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 often made of plastic.
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. Materials used in these repairs are 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. This phenomenon is often called Cracked Tooth Syndrome. Placing crowns on these teeth ofen 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 help to prevent breakage.
