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”.
Dental crowns are 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.
Goebel Family Dentistry is renowned for their high quality work and the fantastic changes we make for people by 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?
Using the latest in technology, Dr. Gary Goebel and Dr. Thomas Goebel are able to provide their patients with finished crowns in only one appointment! Fabricating dental crowns in only one appointment allows the patient to leave the same day without having to use traditional impression materials or placing a temporary crown.

What are the capabilities of dental crowns?
Crown and bridgework is a reliable solution for major dental problems caused through accidents, diseases or wear and tear. Major problems can usually be corrected using this technique. The 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 dental bridges are suitable in cases where porcelain veneers are not. In teeth with root canal or fillings, dental crowns can prevent breakage.
