Why Do I Need a Crown?
When your tooth is damaged due to decay or trauma it may need to be repaired with a dental crown. At Atlanta Place Dentistry in Tulsa, we offer both porcelain and porcelain fused to noble metal crowns. These restorations are natural-looking and very long-lasting.
Crowns can be likened to a cap used to protect a damaged tooth or even replace a missing tooth. Dr. Jelsing is renowned for using modern technology and advanced techniques to provide patients with a quality restoration.
The process of placing a crown takes place over the course of two appointments. To begin, we remove any decay and clean the tooth. Next, your damaged tooth is shaped and we take impressions to send off to our partner lab. While the new crown is being produced, you’ll benefit from a temporary crown to protect your tooth.
Once the crown is ready, Dr. Jelsing makes any final adjustments and then places the crown. It will be fitted using special cement and leaves you with a beautifully restored smile.
I was very afraid of going to the dentist until I went to Dr. Priscila. She and her staff went out of their way to make sure my experience was the best I’ve ever had. I highly recommend Dr. Priscila and Atlanta Place Dentistry.

Long-lasting Benefits to Your Smile
Crowns and bridges can correct dental issues caused by trauma, disease, or severe decay. Dental crowns can help protect a tooth and relieve the pain associated with cracked or broken teeth. Dental bridges, which consist of two crowns and an artificial tooth, can be used to replace missing teeth.
The key benefits of crowns are:
Replace a missing tooth
Support misshapen or broken teeth
Restores function such as chewing
Dr. Jelsing uses porcelain crowns due to their aesthetic finish and strength. This material is used for veneers and helps prevent breakage or any compromise.
