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.

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.
Our Latest Patient Testimonial
Simply put... Dr. Kovanda and his team are what dental dreams are made of. Let me be honest here... I, as I’m sure anyone reading this, dislike dental issues and make my oral hygiene and care a high priority in my life to avoid having to go to the dentist. With that said, when I do need to have dental work done, I have only one team I trust in my mouth, Dr. K. and his team at Cornell Dental. The staff are always friendly, polite and professional. The atmosphere is always comfortable and relaxed. Dr. K. takes his time and always makes me feel like I am his only and most important patient. I moved across the state between this and my last visit and I willingly chose the multi-hour round trip drive to go to my dentist. I go knowing I am going to be well cared for by a Dr. and team that is up to date with the most modern dental technology, have my comfort foremost at heart and know the work done is of the highest standards. I rarely give a review or share my personal thoughts regarding anything or anyone, but I felt my personal experience regarding the very delicate subject of finding a top shelf dental team was worth taking the time. Chose Cornell Dental. You will be glad you did. And that’s how it should be.
