Dental Crowns Duluth MN
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 may be beyond repair, we can use porcelain or porcelain “pasted-on-gold” crowns to make the smile appear like new. This is an extremely reliable technique for repairing the most severe 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.
Key Benefits of Dental Crowns:
- Replaces missing teeth.
- Offers support to misshapen teeth or broken teeth.
- Looks completely natural.
- Repairs smile and functional chewing problems.
What are the capabilities of crowns?
Crown and bridgework are very reliable solutions for major dental problems caused by accidents, diseases, or wear and tear. Major problems can usually be corrected using these techniques. Materials used in these repairs are 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 dental problems. In instances where damage has occurred resulting in the loss of teeth, where teeth have broken away through excessive wear, or tooth damage caused by old fillings breaking down, crowns and/or bridges can be used as a long-term solution.
Many people have unexplained pain from filled back teeth that is are 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. 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.

Patient Review By Charlie B
Mine was a unique process. It was close to four years of work. The outcome far exceeded my very high expectations. The whole office was a breeze to work with, and were super helpful all along the way. The final product looks amazing, and I can't feel anything but normal teeth. The only disappointment is I can't show off my teeth, Covid and masks.

My experience with Dr. Erickson and his staff was over- the- top wonderful! He is personable,friendly and extremely competent. He was willing to work within my financial constraints and still provide me with a partial that fits well AND looks good. During my first appointment I was impressed with the clean office and all the safety precautions he has in place. This was only increased post Covid-19. I would definitely recommended him to my family and friends.
