Dental Crowns in Fort Myers FL
Porto Fino Dental
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 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.

What are the capabilities of 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 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 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 canal fillings, crowns can prevent breakage.

Patient Review By Rick G
I have been a patient of Dr. Bocanegra for several years. My experiences have been exceptional. My only regret is the I did not discover him 10 years ago. He is a "straight shooter". He recommends procedures only as needed, and goes out of his way to ensure that you remain comfortable as he performs the procedures. I'll never see any other dentist.

Having the lab on the premises is a big advantage. The communication between the doctor and crown "designer" was obvious. My teeth look so natural and the color is perfect. After my accident my teeth were replaced within 10 days. I cold smile again without looking like ---well you know.

Patient Review By Gene I
Dr. Bocanegra is very polite and courteous toward his patients. He takes the time to explain the procedures in advance, as well as alternatives so you know what to expect. During the procedure Dr. Bocanegra and his staff continue to maintain their professional and courteous relationship with their patient throughout the process making sure they are doing fine and have no issue. Regardless of what service was provided, upon completion Dr. Bocanegra makes every effort to speak with each patient and make sure they were well taken care of prior to their departure. Thank you to Dr. Bocanegra and all his Staff!
