Dental Crowns | Escondido
Our goal is to provide dentistry that is undetectable. We replace existing dental crowns and fillings with restorations that look and feel like your natural teeth.
When damage to a person’s teeth is extreme and apparently beyond repair, we can use porcelain or porcelain crowns to make the smile appear 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 our patients using this technology.
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.
On the subsequent visit, we will remove the temporary crown. Finally, we will cement the crown into place and you will 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, dental crowns and or dental bridges can be used as a long-term solution.
Many people have unexplained pain from fillings placed in the back teeth, which is usually due to hairline cracks of 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 bridges are suitable in cases where porcelain veneers are not. In teeth with root canals, crowns can prevent breakage.

Patient Review by Marilyn F
I have recently moved to Dallas, Tx from San Diego, Ca. My dentist for many years has been Dr. Michael Frickman. When I found a new dentist in Dallas both the doctor and his staff all commented on what beautiful dental work I had received under Dr Frickman’s care. He was always very clear with any options I might have, easy to see if I had any concerns and had reasonable prices. I highly recommended Dr. Michael Frickman.
