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, Nuera Dental Center can use porcelain or porcelain “pasted on gold” dental crowns in Calgary to help our patients’ smiles appear natural once again. This is a reliable technique for repairing the most severe of dental problems, even permanently replacing missing teeth to offer a complete smile and a functional bite. 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 2 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 are 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.

Best Dental Experience of My Life
“It really has been a 5-star experience!! I am not sure I agree with the descriptive words above that I "Loved it" – how can I love having someone poke with needles, scrape, grind, and drill in my mouth???
But I am happy to say that this has been the best dental experience of my life! And I have lived quite a long time :-).
I never believed that dental work could be painless -- but this was, every part of it, including the needles. Quite amazing!
In addition, the quality of the dental work has been outstanding, and the staff (Dr. David himself, the assistants, and the administrative staff) are each and all amazing. Special mention to Alice in admin for her skilled financial analysis of insurances, and for her understanding empathy and skilled ways of dealing with all the matters of money!
All my life I have feared dentists and usually avoided them until the problems became so much worse. Now I can even look forward to the next steps in my treatment program – with no fear, only gratitude!”
