Everyone knows how much fun it is to go to the dentist? But really, this was a great experience. The newest equipment makes the process almost effortless and the staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. I can only guess about the timetable, but after about 40 years one of my molars, that had previously been filled, cracked. The only recourse was a crown. This required grinding down the old tooth to prep for the new crown. With Dr. Jill applying the appropriate numbing agent, I never felt a thing. A temporary crown was prepared and inserted. I had it in for about two weeks and it was so good it felt like a real tooth. When the new crown came in it was about a 15 minute procedure to remove the temporary an replace with the permanent. A couple of days later, I returned for a minor grinding on the crown to prevent some rubbing I was experiencing on the opposing tooth. I called and was taken that same day. Now all is perfect. Very pleased with Cornelius Dentistry. ”
Our goal at Cornelius Dentistry is to help you achieve and maintain a healthy and beautiful smile for a lifetime. Sometimes this requires restoring a tooth. Fillings are ideal for repairing the damage done by tooth decay. If your tooth sustains an injury, infection, lost restoration, or decay that’s bigger than a filling can handle, we’ll recommend a dental crown to repair your tooth.
A crown replaces your entire tooth, fitting over your remaining structure like a cap. We custom design it to provide excellent function and esthetics so it will complement your smile and you’ll be able to eat and chew with ease.
Dr. Woodruff can typically complete a crown in two appointments. At the first visit, we’ll prepare your tooth for your final restoration, and you’ll leave with a temporary crown to wear until the dental laboratory finishes your permanent crown. In 1 to 2 weeks, you’ll return to our office to have your final crown permanently placed.
You’ll appreciate that Dr. Woodruff uses the best dental materials and works with the top dental laboratories in the area so you can trust that your restoration is one you can rely on for many years.
