Dental Crowns

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 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.

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 badly broken teeth
  • Looks completely natural
  • Fixes “smile” and functional chewing problems

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, crowns and/or 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.

I have been coming to Dr Grimes for years because everything about his practice is professional and friendly. He and the technicians always tell me exactly what they are doing, what to expect, and involve me in the treatment by explaining the X-rays and images. I have recommended Dr Grimes to so many people and I will continue to do so. They're the best!

I have to admit I had another dentist for decades, and was happy, but when he retired I was not satisfied, in the least, with the dentist who bought his practice. He came across as a novice, but also commanded the prices of a 30+ year practice. No more! I made the educated decision to switch to Grimes & Simek Dentistry based on, A) The great reputation Doctors Grimes & Simek have in the Lubbock community, and, B) Already knowing the office from a different business relationship. The first thing you recognize are the friendly staff. I feel very welcome!! Next, the practice utilizes MODERN TECHNOLOGY! Never have I had pictures taken of every millimeter of mouth so they can show me exactly what my situation is, and 3D scans of the current work being done! AMAZING! I'm blown away by the differences in technique compared to where I was prior. They instill an overwhelming air of confidence I have not had before! And BRIANNA FINLEY is the bestest hygienist in the game! I would highly recommend this office in a heartbeat!
