Modern dentistry offers more options than ever to help you restore and maintain an optimal level of health. While the strength and beauty of materials continue to advance, the skill of the practitioner makes a significant difference. Our doctors use the latest techniques, bringing even the most damaged mouths back to full health.

Sometimes teeth are damaged because of cavities, heavy bite forces, or trauma. If a root canal is needed to salvage a compromised nerve, the tooth may be especially fragile. Dental crowns, or caps, allow these teeth to be rebuilt and covered with materials that mimic nature. Not only are most “capped” teeth indistinguishable from natural teeth, but they’re also extremely secure and comfortable.

Crowns can be crafted to repair a single tooth, multiple teeth (including the entire mouth), or in conjunction with dental implants to fill a space. In fact, when missing teeth enter the equation, special consideration might be given to placing a dental bridge or implants.


Once your case is planned, it will take about two appointments before you leave with a fully restored tooth. At the first visit, the teeth are gently prepared. Next, our doctors send your case to a specialized lab to create a dental masterpiece. A temporary crown allows you to function normally until the permanent crown arrives for placement. This typically takes 2-3 weeks.

After hours of custom craftwork in the lab, you’ll return for a second appointment. Our doctors will try-in and evaluate the appearance and fit of the crown before bonding it into place. Minor adjustments to your bite and a final polish leave you with one of the finest restorations in dentistry.

I have had a lot of dental work done by numerous dentists during the past six decades (beginning with crowns in my teens). Dr. Niedleman is by far the best out of all of them! She is SO caring and attentive to every detail of her dental profession! I drive for an hour to get to her office for my appointments because she is the best!

A porcelain crown is a dental restoration that covers and protects a damaged or decayed tooth. It is made from porcelain, a tooth-colored material that closely resembles natural teeth.

Porcelain crowns are preferred for their natural appearance and ability to mimic the translucency of natural teeth. They are also durable and stain-resistant.

On average, porcelain crowns can last 10 to 15 years or more with proper care and maintenance. However, the lifespan may vary based on individual habits and oral hygiene.

Porcelain crowns stand out for their natural aesthetics, closely resembling natural teeth. They are a popular choice for front teeth. Other types of crowns include metal, porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM), and all-ceramic crowns.
