  1. Space Age Dentistry has arrived.


    The future is here.

    Space age technology is part of dentistry today. When Dr. Sheldon Frankel opened Frankel Dentistry in 1946, he was making gold crowns with the lost wax technique. He melted down the gold and poured it into a plaster cast embedded with a wax model of the crown. Pouring the molten gold into the plaster cast melt the wax. The gold-filled void held the new crown. While the crown was created,  the patient cautiously wore a temporary crown for 2 or more weeks.

    CAD/CAM Designed and Manufactured Dental Crown

    Now CAD/CAM (computer aided design and manufacturing) is used daily. Images of the prepared tooth are uploaded into the computer with a camera wand. The doctor designs the crown in the computer. It is routed to a milling system in the office. Milled then polished and shined, the new crown is seated in the patient’s mouth. All done on the same day.

    Art and Science are wed in current dental technology.

    I’m a new patient at Frankel Dentistry. My first appointment was in January of 2020. I’ve been so happy with the care that I’ve received from them. The staff and doctors have been so friendly to me. I was so pleased to see that the practice uses the state-of-the-art dental equipment for their procedures. My last visit was for a crown. It was amazing to see Dr. Smith measure and make my crown right in the office lab, all in one appointment. I had a perfect fit crown installed with no grinding to fit it. It just dropped into place with a perfect fit. I’m very happy with my new crown. Thank you, Dr. Smith and staff. WH

    What to Know about Crowns

    A dental crown is a restoration that is cemented to your tooth that is used to strengthen damage caused by wear, decay or injury. Crowns help improve the appearance of a tooth and recover function.

    Your dentist may recommend a crown for you if you:

    • Have a fractured tooth
    • Need to protect a tooth from breaking
    • Need to replace a large filling
    • Cap a tooth that has a root canal

    Crowns have been around for a long time in the dental world. With technology, the procedure keeps improving and we are pleased to be using the latest technology that allows us to do same-day crowns.

    Frankel Dentistry uses the CEREC machine which is a device that can create a permanent crown perfectly formulated to fit your tooth in about an hour.  Patients love this new technology as it eliminates the need for temporary crowns, which saves patients time and discomfort.

    The staff at Frankel Dentistry design a computer generated crown that fits your tooth precisely. Then CEREC blocks are milled into a beautiful crown. The color of your tooth is matched. Once the machine competes the crown, it is polished and immediately placed onto your tooth. You are then free to leave our office with your problems solved and your smile looking as good as new.
