Porcelain Dental Crowns Take The Pain Out of Tooth Replacement

The Miller Center for Comprehensive Dentistry and, more specifically, Dr. Stephen M. Miller has been sought after by beauty pageant contestants, his current patients, and those persons seeking a second opinion precisely because of his deep expertise and pleasing aesthetics in the field of cosmetic dentistry, which often include development and installation of dental crowns. 

A dental crown is, by definition, a replacement tooth that is sometimes referred to as a “cap” that takes the place of either diseased or visually displeasing teeth, thereby enabling full functionality of mouth, teeth, and jaw.  In fact, a dental crown can be used to:

  • Dental CrownsReplace a cracked or diseased tooth
  • Reinforce a weakened tooth
  • Anchor a bridge or partial
  • Improve or create a pleasing smile
  • Restore a dental implant
  • Correct malocclusion or teeth misalignment
  • Solve a root canal treatment issue

While in times past, gold, porcelain, or porcelain-infused-metal crowns were the materials of choice, material sciences and technological innovations have invented new and better solutions for dental crowns namely:  All Ceramic Porcelain Crowns.  And that’s what we use at the Miller Center for Comprehensive Dentistry.  All ceramic porcelain crowns offer our patients several benefits, including:

  • Sheer beauty and well-documented durability
  • Stunning luminosity and translucency
  • Pleasing appearance and happier patients

But did you know that all ceramic crowns are also “technique sensitive?”*  That’s right.  Anything can go wrong—from an improperly prepared tooth and inaccurate impressions to nerve damage or simply a bad fit.  But that’s also why, if you need a dental crown, you need Dr. Miller managing all aspects of your case—from consultation and examination, to impressions, temporary and permanent crowns. 

Because of Dr. Miller’s 1) impressive credentials, 2) clinical know-how, 3) intensive commitment to continuing education, 4) deep expertise in the field of cosmetic dentistry, and his 5) involvement in the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, his patients experience superior patient outcomes.  Not only is full functionality restored but also his patients are simply delighted by the improvements to their teeth and smile.  They can now smile with confidence—and you can see just a few of those beautiful smiles on our “Wall of Fame” at our office or in the “Smile Gallery” on our website.

To discuss your situation, smile goals, or to seek a free smile consultation, call Dr. Miller at 412-681-7171 or request an appointment through this website.
