Crowns & Bridges

Natural-looking, durable, permanent crowns in a single visit

At Luma Dentistry, we use state-of-the-art technology to design and create natural-looking, durable, all-porcelain crowns in just one visit. This means you don’t have to wait for your permanent restoration to be manufactured at a lab, a process that can take about two weeks.

Custom-milling Your Crown

Your crown is milled quickly and with extreme accuracy out of a single block of durable, high-grade porcelain that looks like real tooth material. Dr. John will take care of the cosmetic work to ensure that your new crown looks aesthetic and natural.

Adjusting for the Perfect Match

The finishing touches are made to ensure that your new crown looks natural and fits comfortably in your mouth, and that you’re happy with it.

Inlays and Onlays in One Visit

Our advanced technology creates high-quality porcelain onlays and inlays, which are restorations used to repair large cavities in a tooth. An inlay is placed in the grooves between the cusps (highest points) of a tooth, and an onlay is fitted over the cusps.

An inlay or onlay can be a more conservative option than a crown, which requires cutting down the tooth.

The doctor’s design and mill inlays and onlays out of porcelain that matches patients’ tooth color. The result is a durable, natural-looking restoration.

Durable, Long-lasting, Natural-looking Bridges

A dental bridge is a tooth replacement option that consists of a series of crowns that span a gap in the teeth. The outer crowns fit over two or more prepared teeth, which have been cut down for this purpose, and these hold the bridge in place.

Your bridge will be designed, fit, and placed by Dr. Gray, our resident specialist in dental reconstruction and tooth restoration. He will make sure your bridge is extremely durable, fits perfectly, gives you a very comfortable bite, and is color-matched to look and feel like your natural teeth.

Dr. Gray will have your bridge constructed precisely for your smile to his exact specifications, using the highest quality materials, at the Gray Dental Laboratory here in Birmingham. Gray Dental Laboratory, which has been providing quality dental restoration products for more than three decades, was established by Dr. Gray’s father.
