Dear Valued Patients,


Serving you for 26 years has transformed me and my profession as a dentist. For this, I feel honored to serve each of you in managing your dental health. It is time for me to pass the baton. I am privileged to pass the dental practice that I hold in my heart, Aesthetic and General Dentistry, to Dr. Peter Kelly, a qualified and knowledgeable dentist with a myriad of talents and experience.


I will still be here to offer my services in the next few months, to assist Dr. Kelly and his partners in this transition. I am also happy to inform you that our entire outstanding dental team will remain with Dr. Kelly. I have confidence that Dr. Kelly will continue the practice’s mission of providing excellent dental care.


Thank you so much for all the experience in becoming a better dentist to you. My personal journey is taking me along another pathway. I will remember you, the relationship, and the memories.


With best wishes and deep gratitude,


Alfredo M. Gapuz, Jr., DMD

Dental Crowns

Broken, damaged, or misshapen teeth can cause discomfort, sensitivity, and confidence issues. 

A dental crown is a porcelain restoration designed to cover a damaged tooth, providing strength and an improved appearance.

At Aesthetic and General Dentistry in Orlando, FL, we design custom crowns that look and feel great for years to come...

Benefits of Dental Crowns Placed by Dr. Alfredo Gapuz

Versatile Applications

A dental crown is one of the most widely used restorative dentistry treatments because it can address a wide range of dental concerns with just one treatment. Dentist Alfredo Gapuz uses dental crowns to restore the function of compromised teeth, enhance cosmetically flawed teeth, support teeth after root canal treatments, or replace missing teeth in conjunction with dental implants

Renewed Dental Function & Form

A crown can dramatically improve your dental function. We use medical-grade porcelain to create highly aesthetic and long-lasting crowns. Thanks to our durable materials, your restoration can last for many years. Meanwhile, your smile will look younger and healthier, giving you a boost in confidence.

Improved Oral Health

At his Orlando, FL, practice, Dr. Gapuz will work meticulously to ensure lifelike results and fully restored oral health. Our dentist has advanced training in neuromuscular dentistry, so he can be certain that your restoration will not alter the balance of your bite or put too much pressure on your jaw joints. At the same time, Dr. Gapuz uses very conservative techniques. As a result, your treatment should involve little to no discomfort, and your crown will have a strong foundation for long-lasting results.

What Is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a porcelain restoration that covers the entire surface of a tooth from the gum line to the cusps. 

It can conceal the effects of damage, strengthen the outer structure of your tooth, and contribute to a balanced bite. If you have a severely damaged tooth, a crown can protect your natural tooth structure and prevent the need for an extraction.

Each crown provided by our Orlando, FL, practice is personally designed by our dentist and custom-crafted by a skilled team of ceramists over the course of two appointments. To protect your tooth from damage or discomfort between appointments, we will provide a temporary crown.

I came to this place because of all the good reviews and now I’m happy to leave a good review myself!!! Staff is super kind and the doctor is amazing. He sat there and showed me my pictures and xrays explaining everything in detail!! Unfortunately my last dentist was just an in and out doctor who didn’t care to explain anything and only told u what was needed and walked out. This doctor shows and tells you why it’s needed...

Amazing dentist. I have been going here since I was ten and I will never go to a different dentist. The office staff is amazing and Dr. Gapuz is very skilled at what he does. They make going to the dentist seem fun and not scary. I had to get all four of my wisdom teeth surgically removed as a teen and Dr. Gapuz did an amazing job.

Crown Placement

Removing a small amount of dental tissue is necessary to ensure a comfortable, seamless fit.

What to Expect during Your Treatment

From your first consultation to your final fitting, you can complete your entire treatment with Dr. Gapuz. Our dentist can handle most cases at our Orlando, FL, office, so you won't have to worry about scheduling appointments with other doctors or hopping back and forth between dental offices. 

Most patients need two appointments to complete their dental crown treatment. Here is what you can expect:

Crowns are placed over the course of two visits to our Orlando office.
Crowns are placed over the course of two visits to our Orlando office.


First, our dentist will determine whether a dental crown is the right choice. Dr. Gapuz will assess the health of your tooth to decide whether a crown can help or whether an extraction is necessary. 

Numbing the Treatment Area

Our team goes above and beyond to ensure that you are comfortable during your appointment. Before preparing your tooth, our team will administer anesthesia to numb the treatment area and eliminate any discomfort. If needed, we also offer two types of sedation.

Preparing the Tooth

To place a traditional dental crown, Dr. Gapuz will first reshape your tooth. He will remove any damaged or decayed tissue and perform any other alterations needed to create a strong foundation for your crown and a proper fit within your smile.

Dental Impressions

Next, our dentist will create impressions of your reshaped tooth. Often, he can take digital impressions, which are more convenient and accurate than traditional manual molds. He can then send these images to a third-party lab for crown fabrication. While your crown is being fabricated, you will receive a temporary crown. A temporary crown protects your tooth from further damage and helps you maintain uninterrupted dental function.

Crafting the Crown

At the third-party dental lab, trusted and highly experienced ceramists will create your crown in a way that provides realistic and attractive results. We use special porcelain that is carefully matched to your smile to ensure that your crown matches the color, texture, and shine of your natural teeth. 

Fitting & Placement

When the restoration is finished, Dr. Gapuz will etch the outside of your tooth and attach the cap with dental cement. Dr. Gapuz is focused on neuromuscular dentistry, so he will take extra precautions to ensure that your new crown complements your bite before permanently cementing it into place.

"He Does Such an Amazing Job to Keep You Comfortable."

Love Dr Gapuz and his staff! Everyone is super friendly and very skilled. Dental work is never fun but he does such an amazing job to keep you comfortable with even during uncomfortable procedures. The office is spotless and everything is so clean and sterile. I take comfort knowing I can call the office if I have any problems or need to come in, in a pinch. Would definitely recommend!

They're all great and amazing! Dr. A. Gapuz is the best dentist I've ever known in my life. His staff is fantastic, courteous, and knowledgeable in their own areas of expertise. My husband loves him and was so grateful to Dr. Gapuz after he did his dental work. My husband is able to eat now without pain and his face and smile looked a lot better than before.
