A damaged or weakened tooth not only affects the look of your smile. It can also cause pain, soreness, and difficulty chewing.
To relieve discomfort and restore your smile to good health, Drs. Art Carpenter and Sejal Jobalia can provide a custom dental crown.

What Are These Dental Restorations?
Crowns are porcelain caps that cover the entire surface of your teeth. They are extremely versatile, and dentists use them to mask cosmetic imperfections like discolored or misshapen teeth as well to restore teeth affected by root canal infection, severe decay, or other trauma.
Because these restorations can correct a wide range of dental issues while simultaneously improving the look of your smile, they are widely used by dentists. To ensure that your permanent crowns look and feel great, our dentists work with dental ceramists to construct restorations that are perfectly tailored to your smile.

Porcelain Crowns May Not Be Right for Every Patient
At our dental practice, we believe in providing conservative care that preserves as much dental tissue as possible while providing the enhancement you need in order to restore your oral health. If your tooth requires more than a filling, but a dental crown would be excessive, we can provide inlays and onlays. These special restorations are used to replace dental tissue on the chewing surface of molars and, if necessary, replace one or more cusps (the pointed edges of the chewing surface).

Worried That Your Dental Crown Won't Look Real?
Our dentists use state-of-the-art materials to craft temporary crowns and permanent restorations. Because porcelain is carefully matched to the shade, color, and texture of your other teeth, these restorations are virtually indistinguishable.
For your comfort and peace of mind, we also provide lifelike temporary crowns between appointments, so you never have to go without healthy-looking teeth or worry about your smile looking incomplete.
Your crown will be custom-designed to fit comfortably...

Restore Your Smile with Customized, Quality Dental Crowns
A traditional dental crown is a restorative treatment that provides strength and structure to support a tooth that is no longer fully functional. Typically made of durable ceramic or porcelain, a crown, sometimes called a "cap," is often virtually indistinguishable. The materials we use offer a translucent quality similar to enamel, and can be artfully matched to blend seamlessly with your smile.
Our practice has a reputation for excellence in the Kenilworth area. We offer convenient appointments which are scheduled to provide patients with prompt service.
A custom dental crown is made to fully cover damage, restoring natural shape, size, and function. The procedure in our office takes place in two appointments. Initially, the area is cleaned and disinfected, then altered to allow optimal fit and support for your restoration. We will take highly detailed impressions to create your customized crown. It typically takes about two weeks to complete your restoration, during which time you will wear a temporary crown. At your second appointment, we will affix your permanent crown. Dr. Carpenter or Dr. Jobalia will ensure proper fit and comfort, and provide guidance to help you obtain log-lasting benefits from your new crown. With proper care, your restoration can last for up to 15 years.
Patients dealing with tooth loss may choose to restore their smile with dental implants designed to securely hold a restoration. Dental implants are surgically placed in the gums, forming a sturdy base that functions similarly to natural roots. This treatment is an ideal option, offering an experience that accurately mimics the comfort and function of natural teeth and prevents bone loss. Dr. Carpenter and Dr. Jobalia create custom restorations for many dental implants patients. Our implant restorations are of the highest quality and made to last for decades.

We have been coming to Dr. Carpenter for several years now after seeing dentists that lacked good patient relationships. Dr. Carpenter is patient with those who fear going to the dentist (that's me), explains what needs to be done and provides different options for treatment. Worth the trek from the city!Kelly B.
