This patient had decay that kissed the nerve in 3 places. With laser decay removal and a one-day crown, the tooth is still happy.
This patient had a small accident and fractured her previous crown into pieces. I made her a new permanent tooth in less than 2 hours!
This patient came into Moonlight Beach Dental for a second opinion. That decision ended up saving her a lot of money, time, and her tooth!
This lovely patient was very unhappy with her bonding on the front teeth and the discolored lower teeth. See before & after photos.
We are now milling same-day zirconia crowns right here in the office.
Zirconia crowns offer you the HUGE advantage of being virtually unbreakable. They also will not wear or chip.
With this one tip, you can save thousands of dollars on dental crowns in your lifetime. Sometime in the future, you’re probably going to need a dental crown. If you’ve got a crown in the past, you know it’s not inexpensive or fun. But what really hurts is when you have to pay to replace…
I’ve been busy during COVID. Last week, 4 people with front tooth emergencies had the same story: Their regular dentist wouldn’t return their call.
2 years ago, I made a video on how to reattach a crown with Elmer’s Glue when a dentist is not available. I had no idea this video would become so popular.
People are always wowed that we can do permanent dental work, quickly, in a single visit – and at the same time address fear with sedation. And they should be! Check out this guy who cracked a tooth but he had to leave the country in 2 days. No problem.
Ahh! What is that, you say? This here is an extracted tooth with a little something extra on it. The patient came in for a different treatment, but we noticed a “pimple” that was draining on the gum. That pimple was a fistula, and it was pus draining from a failing root canal that was performed years prior at another dentist.
Would you want this crown in your mouth?
Many dentists leave old fillings underneath the crown. These fillings are broken down and the reason for the crown was necessary in the first place!

Over 10 years ago, this patient had some facial trauma as a child, and had 4 crowns done by her childhood dentist to fix it. As gorgeous as she already is, the crowns were too “gummy”, and appeared grey underneath from the way they had been done.
We redid just 4 of them, and now her veneers match her youth, they’re whiter and brighter, and the tissue has adapted much better around these.
Every once in a while, a crown falls off.
But what do you do when your crown falls off when you are camping? What can you do when your dentist is closed on the weekend?
Here’s a temporary fix that you can try that will help you until you can get the crown professionally re-cemented at your dentist’s office.
We now offer a 5-year warranty on our crowns! We know of no other dentist that does this. New cars don’t even come with a 5-year warranty.
If you have ever gotten a crown at another dentist, only to have that crown break in the next year or two, you know it can be an expensive, and frustrating situation.
We are very proud of the quality of care we provide. That’s why we stand behind it, with a 5-year warranty on all major work.
I think this is it… the perfect example of the difference crowns done well can make.
You can see in the before pics, how the existing crowns from another dentist make the patient look 10 years older.
And in the afters, you’ll see how by replacing just 4 teeth in a single visit, she looks 10 years younger.
This patient hated her crowns. They were done 10 years ago to mask her tetracycline-stained teeth.
She also had an open bite. Several other doctors told her she needed to have her jaw broken, braces, and 28 crowns done to restore her bite. She was very concerned about having “fake looking teeth”.
To top all that off, she is phobic, and wanted to be sedated to have any dental work.

When getting a dental crown, you should understand that as a consumer you have many choices. There are different types of crowns. Not all dental crowns are equal. Not all dentists know about, use, or even offer all of the options available to them.
