Dental Crowns

Porcelain Crowns Tooth Restorations in San Francisco

Most dentistry looks like dentistry. Our goal is to provide dentistry that is undetectable. We replace existing dental crowns and fillings with restorations that look and feel like your natural teeth.

Where damage to a person’s teeth is extreme, and apparently beyond repair, we can use porcelain or porcelain “pasted on gold” crowns to make the smile appear “as new”. This is an extremely reliable technique for repairing the most severe of 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.

Call San Francisco Office Phone Number 415-781-4725 to schedule your dental crown consultation with Dr. Markle.

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.

What are the capabilities of crowns?

Crown and bridgework is a very reliable solution for major dental problems caused through accidents, diseases or wear and tear. Major problems can usually be corrected using these techniques. Material used in these repairs is 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 of dental problems. Where accidental damage has occurred, resulting in lost teeth, or where teeth have broken away through excessive wear, or as the result of old fillings breaking, dental crowns and/or dental bridges can be used as a long-term solution.

Many people have unexplained pain from filled back teeth, which is 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 for these teeth. 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.

Dr. Markle can also place Dermal Fillers and Botox to further enhance the lips and facial  areas in order to maximize the esthetics of your smile.

I have been going to Dr. Markle for 35 plus years! I travel from the East Bay and I know there are a lot of dentists closer to me, but I have always been satisfied with the care I receive at Dr. Markle's office. Over the years I have had countless routine cleanings as well as more involved procedures, including crowns and Invisalign. Dr. Markle and his staff are truly the best. I also believe the pricing is fair and is a good value. I highly recommend Dr. Markle and his practice.

I came to Dr. Markel's office because I was searching for a dentist who would be sensitive to mine and my daughter's phobias of the dentist. We have not been disappointed and have been coming back for nearly 8 years for regular cleanings, crowns, and Invisalign. Thank you for the wonderful experience.
