Dental Crowns, Lancaster PAMost 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 may be beyond repair, we can use porcelain or porcelain “pasted-on-gold” crowns to make the smile appear like new. This is an extremely reliable technique for repairing the most severe 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 broken teeth.
- Looks completely natural.
- Repairs smile and functional chewing problems.
What are the capabilities of crowns?
Crown and Bridges are very reliable solutions for major dental problems caused by accidents, diseases, or wear and tear. Major problems can usually be corrected using these techniques. Materials used in these repairs are 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 dental problems. In instances where damage has occurred resulting in the loss of teeth, where teeth have broken away through excessive wear, or tooth damage caused by old fillings breaking down, crowns and/or Bridges can be used as a long-term solution.
Many people have unexplained pain from filled back teeth that is are 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. 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.
We have been seeing Dr. Weierbach since the 1980's. Our entire family has been patients there. A friend of ours had her front tooth broken off in a floor hockey game. She went to Weierbach for emergency treatment. The crown he made for her was perfect! She still tells me about the dentists she has seen since then that didn't recognize her front tooth had a crown! Weierbach does beautiful work...sort of a dental artist!

I definitely would recommend this practice. Before coming here I didn't want to smile. After whitening and crowns I can now smile without embarrassment.

Not a day goes by that I don’t count my good fortune in becoming Dr. Weierbach’s patient. His excellent work is more evident to me with each year that passes. While an improved appearance is the clear objective, learning about optimum dental heath from Dr. Weierbach and his staff is a valuable benefit that contributes to my quality of life. The results are lasting, and so is my appreciation. Sincere thanks to the entire Weierbach team for your encouragement and ongoing patient education, and for your resolve to achieve the best possible results during my twenty plus years of dental care with you.

I LOOK LIKE A NEW PERSON! My experience at Dr. Weierbach's was incredible. From the second you walk into their beautiful office and are greeted by their friendly staff, you will quickly see that they truly are the best at what they do, and you'll never want to go anywhere else. I had my smile transformed by Dr. Weierbach which included (4) teeth extractions, fillings, cleanings, and 4 crowns. Dr. Weierbach and his staff were not only encouraging throughout the process, however were very pain conscious and made sure that I was not in any discomfort throughout the process. The before and after pictures show a phenomenal difference and I now get complimented on my smile daily, when it was something that I lived my entire life being the most self-conscious about. I couldn't be any more grateful for Dr. Weierbach and his team.

I CANNOT be ANY more pleased with my new smile. Dr. Weiwenach has helped me be the best version of myself. The caring staff only added to the ease of “going to the dentist”. I will be able to smile the biggest brightest smile at my daughter’s wedding!

I am a 3rd year dental student and my experience with Dr. Weierbach was exceptional. I was very selective when choosing a prosthodontist to redo my upper two front teeth. From the minute I walked in his practice, to the day I left with my new highly esthetic and natural looking crowns, I was impressed with Dr. Weierbach and his staff. Dr. Weierbach took the time sit down and to answer any and all questions I had. It was evident that Dr. Weierbach keeps up to date on the most relevant and current research. As a future dentist I would highly recommend Dr. Weierbach.
