Dental Crowns in Rapid City SD
Most dentistry looks like dentistry. 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.
Where damage to a person’s teeth is extreme, and apparently beyond repair, we can use all-porcelain or layered porcelain 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.
How long does it take to fit a crown on a tooth?
Boulevard Dental is proud to offer digital dentistry with CEREC technology, and the majority of crowns done in our office are completed in one appt. Instead of sending impressions to a lab and placing a temporary crown, we are instead able to complete the process entirely in our office to create a finished, same-day crown.

What are the capabilities of crowns?
Crown and bridgework is a very reliable solution for major dental problems caused by accidents, diseases, or wear and tear. Major problems can usually be corrected using these techniques. The material used in these repairs is either high-grade porcelain. 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 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.
