Dental Crowns

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.

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 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!

Patient Review By Nannette B

I was seeing another dentist in the area and had chipped a tooth while at work. My previous dentist never called me back and 3 hours after the fact was willing to squeeze me in after the weekend. A friend told me to contact DiNinno Dental to see if I could be seen sooner. They not only answered the phone during their lunch break but squeezed me in that day. The staff is warm, friendly, and professional. I am proud to say they got a "two for one deal" with me as my spouse and I are now new patients of DiNinno Dental.

Patient Review By Kris B

I have been with Dr Nick since I was a teenager. I can not say enough about the outstanding treatment I have recieved over the years. From taking me in on an emergency call on a Saturday, to making me feel overall relaxed in the dental chair, I have always been at ease. The transition to Dr. Nicholas was smooth, and is equally satisfying. The DiNinno family has always treated me like their own family. The staff loyalty that they have is a testament to the big family that is DiNinno dental. I am happy to be part of that family!

Patient Review By Mike C

Our family has 35+ years of exceptional treatment from the TEAM at DiNinno Family Dentistry. They have continually exceeded expectations and their progressive journey from Main St-Oliver St-South St speaks volumes to their success in capturing new patients while retaining patients due to their exceptional treatment and care of many such as our family. The passing of the torch from Dr Nick Jr to Dr Nick III is a dream that they should be extremely proud of BUT they accomplished that via hard work and genuine care for their patients. They will be accorded "5 STAR" ratings from each and every member of our family without exception...We applaud your success and wish you the very best as you continue to grow in your "state-of-the-art" facility serving patients throughout the area!

Patient Review By Lori J

Dr. Nick has been my Dentist for 38 years. Our family had terrible experiences with a different Dentist for years before that and one of my Brothers decided he wasn't going back to the other Dentist and he was going to find us a new Dentist. He looked in the Yellow Pages (yes I'm old) and happened to pick Dr. Nick. Boy were we lucky! Dr. Nick is the most gentle, kind human being I have met. Well until Dr. Nicholas his son. I have to admit I was nervous seeing Dr. Nicholas because I was so used to Dr. Nick but he is amazing as well and just like his Dad. I also can not leave out Tina, she is the heart of the practice and we love her. I would not go anywhere else!!

Patient Review By Scott L

My old dentist of over 30 years had recently sold his practice and I was not satisfied with the new owner. After some research, referrals from friends and a visit I decided to move to DiNinno Family Dental. Their location and days open are ideal for me. They come from Fitchburg and had a good opinion of the dentist that I had gone to for years. This all added up to a win for me. Then the true test. I decided to get a crown done that I had been putting off for years. I couldn't have asked for more (other than not needing one to begin with). The work was as painless as possible and the tooth seems just like my natural tooth. The billing and insurance work were also as painless as possible. All in all, I am very happy with my move to DiNinno Family Dental.

Patient Review By Tom K

As a new patient, I was impressed with the initial assessment which was thorough and utilized state of the art technology. The subsequent consultation resulted in my confidence in the proposed treatment plan. My first appointment was a comfortable and efficient dental experience. The entire staff demonstrated professionalism and concern for my care. I am sure that my relationship with this dental practice will be positive for years to come.

Patient Review By Emily A

I honestly can't say enough about everyone at DiNinno Family Dental. From the staff at the front desk, the insurance aspect of getting dental work done and to the dental staff they have been professional, kind and incredibly understanding of my dental needs. I came to see Dr. Nicholas 2 years ago with an emergency procedure that needed to be done. The front desk was kind and gentle answering all of my frantic questions and booking me an appointment immediately. Dr. Nicholas has been nothing but understanding and incredibly knowledgeable about my care and with my permission worked out a plan to get me the care needed by his staff. Having lived in Boston for several years and having dental work done with specialists, I have never been cared for and felt like there was hope with my teeth like I have with Dr. Nicholas. The office is clean, up to date and I feel like family whenever I am in there to get my teeth cleaned by Amy or dental work with Dr. Nicholas. Recently my daughter who is 3 has started to get her teeth cleaned there with Amy. They understood how nervous she was as it was her first time and they were so gentle and calm with her she feels safe going back in 6 months. I will never be able to thank them for being so wonderful and I highly recommend them to anyone looking for dental care or who needs to change dentists.
