DiNinno Family Dental – Fitchburg MA
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 dental 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 dental 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
What are the capabilities of dental 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, 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 dental 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 fillings, dental crowns can prevent breakage.
Dental Crown Cases
Here is an example of a tooth with a large, failing amalgam restoration and a tooth that has had root canal therapy. Dental crowns are indicated for both teeth to prevent fracture and possible tooth loss.

Patient Review By Kathy Lawler E
Doctor gets 10 stars. I am not a fan of going to the dentist, but he makes me feel comfortable. Dental hygienist is awesome and is another person who always makes me feel comfortable. Didn’t even feel the novacaine shot. Would recommend this dentist and his staff to anyone.

Patient Review By Tim S
Dr. Nick has been my family dentist for years. He re-defines the common fear of "going to the dentist". He brings decades worth of professionalism and expertise that is unmatched, while also adding a friendly smile and humor to ease any anxiety. I drive 2 hours from NH to see him for treatment and I will continue to do so. When I look up in that chair and see him I know I am in good hands and will always get the best treatment possible.

Patient Review By Frank D
My family has been searching for a new provider ever since the one we had retired, and I believe we found the perfect fit. I have been cautious and hesitant about dentists for as long as I can remember. At DiNinno Family Dental, my fears were respected and understood. From the moment I walked in I felt "at home." A good friend recommended DiNinno Family Dental and the stress free experiences he and his spouse have always had through the years they have been going there. I am under the same belief that he has, "if I can't feel my ankles, then the novocaine is sufficient." In all seriousness, if my pain can be controlled, I'll be alright through any procedure. My wife after her first visit, was equally pleased. Everyone we both met introduced themselves. This made us feel like "family" and not just a patient.The hygienist she had was very friendly and patient, answering any question she may have had. We both will be going here from now on for our dental care.

Patient Review By Steven B
I have been a patient with DiNinno Family Dental for several years now. The care I have received has been exceptional. The Staff has great balance of professionalism and humor from the doctors to front desk staff. My first visit was to replace an old crown. The new crown's fit and color match was an amazing improvement. At this point I need to really think about which tooth it is on. The Hygienists are a compliment to the business with their thoroughness and guidance on home care. Knowing my curious nature and interest in detail work the staff has gone above and beyond in accommodating me. Providing a hand held mirror to watch the entire crown replacement procedure and discussing every detail of the crown making process. Very happy patient!

Patient Review By Carol A
From my very first visit, everyone at DiNinno Family Dental treated me like family. I was warmly greeted with genuine felicity. I love my hygienist, Amy. She is extremely adept and efficient with my cleaning and always happy to see me. I have been treated by both Dr. DiNinno (father and son) to have my forty-year old dental work rejuvenated. The doctors utilize the latest technology and comfort procedures. This, in addition to their gentle touch and skilled hands make for a most pleasant experience. With current evidence of the importance of good dental hygiene to overall good physical health, it behoves everyone to make sure oral health is given the consideration it deserves; and with the DiNinno Family expertise and neighborly reception, I feel that there is no better dental office to consider.

Patient Review By Alyssa & Jason B
This was the best experience I've had with a dentist's office. My husband had an injury at work and I was able to bring him there that day! Everyone was pleasant and willing to help us with the situation. Each staff member had a smile on their face and made sure the appointment went smoothly. The woman who does billing sat down with us and explained the insurance and gave us an estimate. The Dental Assistant made sure my husband was comfortable and the Dentist was great! He made sure my husband was satisfied with the treatment plan and made sure he could come back the next day to get his teeth fixed. Not to mention the office was spotless and kid friendly! We will be going back to this office. Thank you so much!
