The crowning of royalty is as ancient as the history of civilized societies. But whereas it has been a symbolic image for a governing body to convey its power, when it comes to your tooth, the crown serves a very important function. It is the main structure that rises from the gums and contains precious cargo – the inner tooth area, where the pulp and nerves are housed. But sometimes it gets damaged from tooth decay or from trauma. When this happens, something must be done to rectify the situation – you’ll need a new crown from your dentist in Brookfield. As you continue exploring, you’ll learn more about how this process works and how to determine when you need one.

We are thankful to have so many fantastic patients in our practice. The month of September was dedicated to raising money for the relief efforts that the J.J. Watt fund is providing to the Hurricane Harvey victims. Many citizens lost their homes, their cars, their pets and their belongings. They are being assisted by many great organizations that are helping them to get back on their feet. During September, our doctors raised money to be donated from those who paid for custom whitening trays. The money is being given directly to the J.J. Watt Hurricane Fundraiser. The total donated amount is $750!
Thank you to everyone who made the choice to whiten and brighten your smile. You have made a difference and we are glad to be donating to those in need because of you.
