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.

I feel pretty happy. I am going to have my son come here now instead of waiting until the end of the road. I wish I would have had a better understanding of the timeframes for my treatment. It took one year.

Patient Review By Lyle W
I lived in constant pain eating until I met the folks at the Dental Implant & Reconstructive Center in Duluth MN. Following a horrific accident and having my face shattered and a jaw broken I had pain and difficulty eating every meal. Because of their professional staff's ability to preform miracles I now have a great smile and the ability to eat and taste food pain free. I refer to them as miracle workers and they have proven it to me. I definitely refer Dental Implant &* Reconstructive because they have proved to me to be the very best.

Patient Review By Ed C
This is a highly efficient office across the board. Everything was discussed in great detail throughout the entire process. One does not feel rushed. And there is a very healthy interplay of levity and seriousness to lessen the stress. This is how dental (and medical) practice should be conducted.

Patient Review By Robyn A
I saw Dr. Esguerra for a consultation regarding the need for a root canal and alternatives. It was a 5 star experience from scheduling through the consultation. Julie was wonderful with scheduling and answering my initial questions. Dr. Esguerra reviewed my CT scan in detail with me and conducted an oral exam. She was very knowledgeable and compassionate. She took all the time needed to provide information on implants and addressed my specific situation. She answered all my questions and I came away with a good plan that I have confidence in. Her office followed up with me after my visit as well. I would most definitely recommend Dr. Esguerra and her practice. I plan to come back if needed.
