What Are Dental Crowns?
If you have a tooth that has sustained significant decay or damage, it can often be treated using a dental crown. Our established dental office proudly provides these dental restorations to individuals in Newton, Brookline, and surrounding Massachusetts communities to protect and cover the visible part of a damaged tooth. Additionally, a crown can also restore a more natural function and appearance to the tooth. Crown restorations are custom-crafted to blend with natural teeth and may be utilized to treat fractured teeth, caries, oddly-shaped teeth, or other types of oral damage. At our Wellesley, MA office, we are proud to utilize CEREC® same-day restorations to get you your crown as soon as possible. Set up a visit with our dental practitioners at Wellesley Aesthetic Dental Group to discover if a crown might boost the quality of your smile and the function of your mouth.

Second root canal I have had with her. She is terrific!!
Today was my first experience with Dr. Rafla and his wonderful, efficient, but most of all kind staff. I went to this very much dreaded appointment with no idea of what to expect. My poor teeth are so sore and they are making everything difficult. I have horrible gagging reflex which makes everything harder for those that are trying to take x rays to be able to guide me into having a proper diagnosis and treatment. Trust me when I say I was a difficult patient. I expected the doctor to say there wasn’t much hope for them. Instead after reviewing what I was giving him to work with he listed off the perfect game plan. All aspects would be easier on me and my issues and seem to offer a perfect solution. I hope Coach Bill Belechick has competition in writing a game plan. Dr Rafla can give him a run for his money. In no time at all Dr. Rafla had a plan devised to ease my pain and fix the pockets in my gums. I am anxious now to correct these problems and move forward with the plan Thank you Dr. Rafla and team for being both gentle and kind with me today.
I had a few root canals done at my dentist and then the teeth cracked and needed to be extracted. I lived with the missing teeth till I found Dr Rafla and he explained that I needed a bone graph since it they had been missing so long..that took six months for the bone to regenerate and give him the depth for the implants...the implants were painless and done correctly I have been going back to them for 2 yrs to monitor the implant, check my receding gums and get a extensive cleaning every 6 months. I was then able to go back to my doctor and get Invisalign treatment. Without Dr Rafla this would not be possible. Yes I could have bought a new car, but I also could have had dental problems the rest of my life..I now don't worry and my smile is straight again.
I had a root canal with Dr. Marta Rafla. She and everyone I've worked with in her office is incredibly nice, considerate, and professional. My root canal was quick and painless too! I was so very happily surprised with how pleasant my entire experience was. I don't usually rate and review on Google, but this office deserves the public recognition!

What Is The Dental Crown Procedure?
Thanks to CAD/CAM technology, we can often provide crowns in just one visit. During your appointment, one of our skilled dental practitioners will administer a local anesthetic to your tooth and clean the damaged area of your mouth. After the damaged area is taken care of, an impression of the tooth will be completed and utilized to fabricate your unique crown. We will utilize our state-of-the-art CEREC technology to create your crown while you wait in the office. Once created, your custom dental restoration will be attached to your tooth or implant post.
