All-on-4? What’s that?

Implants are very popular! Did you know there are different ways implants can work for you? For example, ALL-ON-4 — instead of a mouth full of implants, which can get pretty expensive, you might be able to get away with just 4 strategically placed implants to fully restore your smile. Dr. Chris Stryker is an expert implant dentist, and he talks about the benefits of All-on-4 in this video. Watch now and contact Lincoln Crossings Dental Care, in North Huntingdon, PA today!

Immediate implants… What’s that?

Watch and let Dr. Chirs Stryker — expert implant dentist at Lincoln Crossings Dental Care in North Huntingdon, PA — explain it all. Then, schedule your implant consultation with him today!

Dental Crowns

When a tooth is badly damaged, covering it with a crown will reinforce its structure, restoring strength and preventing the tooth from needing to be extracted. With a crown in place, a tooth that was compromised by severe decay, a large crack, breakage, or extraordinary wear will be restored to its full strength.

A dental crown is made of highly durable ceramic strong enough to withstand the wear and tear our teeth are subjected to every day. Each crown is custom made to feel perfectly natural and blend in seamlessly with the surrounding teeth. Once in place, a crown is virtually impossible to detect, even up close. Crowns are designed to last 10 years or longer with proper care and regular dental examinations.

If you have a tooth with a large filling, severe decay, breakage, or cracks, a dental crown may be the best way to save your smile.
