Crowns, Caps, Bridges, Veneers, Lumineers

Crowns are synthetic caps made of porcelain, ceramic, gold or a combination thereof. They are fabricated in a lab to esthetically fit the shape, shade, bite of your mouth specifically. The crown is then cemented over your tooth as a permanent restoration. The reasons a crown may be required can vary, however the goal of the restoration is to restore a tooth’s function and strength. Crowns are also used to attach bridges, cover implants, prevent a cracked tooth from becoming worse, or restore a tooth with extensive decay. Crowns also serve an aesthetic use, and are applied when a discolored, worn down or stained tooth needs to be restored to a natural appearance.

All-Ceramic Crowns

All-ceramic crowns are the most recent advancement in the field of crown and bridge dentistry. All ceramic crowns have an inner dense tooth-colored core, over which porcelain is bonded. The porcelain has excellent light transmitting properties, giving these restorations a very natural appearance. All ceramic crowns lack any metals and create a very natural and esthetic match to adjacent teeth making them nearly impossible to detect!


Bridges are natural-looking dental appliances that can replace single or in some cases multiple missing teeth. Unlike a partial denture, bridges are cemented in place and act and feel like real teeth. Because they are custom-made, bridges are barely noticeable and can restore the natural contour of teeth as well as the proper bite relationship between upper and lower teeth.


Veneers can be used to change the color and shape of teeth in moderation. Only a small amount of the outer surface of the tooth must be removed in order for a veneer to be placed, thus making this a more conservative approach to brightening and changing one’s smile. Veneers cover only the front part of a tooth. They offer a painless way to permanently whiten and perfectly align your smile. Before placement, we will discuss with you your new smile design and the specific esthetics desires you may have. The thickness of the veneer will depend upon the esthetic outcome desired as well as the natural shape, placement and color of the tooth/teeth.


Lumineers are a type of veneers that are fabricated to be contact lens thin. Lumineers can be applied to teeth with almost no grinding, shaving, or anesthetic. This allows us to transform your teeth into a naturally beautiful smile that looks flawless. Veneers and lumineers are the painless, permanent cosmetic solution for stained, chipped, discolored or misaligned teeth.

I always have the best experience at Ackley Dental. Everyone makes me feel so comfortable, (I was very scared of going to the dentist for many years). The staff is so kind and attentive. The dentists are caring. They take the time to explain step by step. They are also so skilled. My teeth look great. I actually don't mind going to the dentist anymore because of all the people at Ackley Dental. Thank you all so very much.

Katrina is so personable, while being efficient and detail-oriented with cleaning teeth. In fact, everyone in the office today was very cheerful and helpful. They go all out with cleanliness and sanitation. This dental office was recommended to me when I first moved to Hernando Beach and I recommend it to anyone looking for a new dentist office. Conveniently located really close to the intersection of US 19 (Commercial) and Spring Hill Drive, the office is tucked away beyond the highway and cross roads, but not difficult to find.

Ackley Dental Group was professional and has always been courteous from the get-go. I suffered no pain regardless of the procedure. I would recommend them to all my family and friends who need work done, or even just for a checkup. I look forward to continued work on my teeth and gums with them because I know it will be done right and with little to no pain.

I’ve had many dentists try and tackle my problems, but none more thorough and painless than Ackley Dental. They take care of whatever problem I have quickly and thoroughly, and make great recommendations for maintaining it all. Couldn’t ask for anything better than that.

Absolutely the best dental group ever! The registration staff is amazing and helps me with all my monetary questions. They are overly friendly and very understanding of my high functioning anxiety. They have kept me comfortable and made me feel safe every time I go. I love Dr. Amy! She has been very caring and concerned about all aspects of my dental and my anxiety. I will never seek another dentist again!

I'm 76 years old and have been to many dentist over the years yet I have never looked forward to going to the dentist till now. I'm so grateful I found Ackley Dental Group. I would recommend them to every one I know. I especially would recommend them to anyone who says they hate going to the dentist. You will be pleasantly surprise. I have some medical problems and I did tell my dentist what they are and she is so compassionate and so understanding so when I'm there if I'm not feeling great she does everything to keep me comfortable and I don't have to feel embarrassed. Thank you all Ackley Dental Group.
