Crowns make ugly teeth look brand new

Teeth with excessive wear, decay, or extensive cracks can benefit from being covered by a dental crown. Crowns offer an advantage over fillings in that they can be crafted to fit precisely on your tooth like a “cast,” which will evenly distribute your biting, minimizing future possibilities of that tooth re-cracking and/or abscessing.

Dental crowns, or caps, encase the entire visible part of a tooth (above the gum line). Crowns can be made out of porcelain ceramics, gold or metal alloys, or a combination of both materials.

Dental caps are used to improve the cosmetic appearance of a tooth, to strengthen a tooth, or to restore a tooth to its natural shape. Stop by our Appleton dental office to know which one is right for you.

If part of a tooth is still healthy porcelain veneers or ¾ crowns can satisfy the tooth’s functional and cosmetic needs. When used simultaneously to strengthen or restore a tooth, they are very effective. Read “Why Does My Tooth Require a Crown?”


Bridges are natural-looking replacements for lost/missing permanent teeth which can restore normal chewing abilities and preserve jaw alignment. They are fabricated of natural-looking porcelain or gold, modeled to appear as one of your teeth, and anchored permanently to the neighboring teeth. Fix bridges are constructed to be permanently cemented. They may replace front or back teeth and do not come out at night.




When I first met Dr. Luther, I had a lot of dental problems that needed addressing. When my treatment was complete, in general my whole body felt so much better. He’s an artist; I didn’t realize how much detail is put into the design of fillings and crowns. I am going to recommend Dr. Luther to anyone that is in need of a dentist.
