Boost Your Smile’s Potential – With A Dental Crown!
Dental crowns restore the shape, size, and strength of a tooth. They fully encase the visible part of your tooth or dental implant. Once they have been permanently bonded to your teeth, only a dentist or dental specialist can remove them.
Proper care and good oral hygiene can extend the lifespan of a crown from 5 to 15 years. If a natural tooth-colored porcelain crown is used, you can receive a permanent crown in one visit, as opposed to two visits with a metal or porcelain-fused-to metal crown. We can let you know at your consultation which option is right for you.
When are crowns necessary?
Restore and protect a broken, worn, or decayed tooth
Support a tooth after it has been filled deeply or has undergone root canal treatment
Complete your dental implant treatment
Hold a dental bridge or other prosthesis in place
Cover a misshapen, or severely discolored tooth to give your smile a more balanced, attractive appearance.
A physical assessment including x-rays and a digital scan will clarify your condition and whether you are a candidate for a dental bridge.
Dr. Chang will then recommend a plan which can in many cases be completed that same day.
The next step will involve preparing the adjacent teeth, which involves shaping the teeth so that the crowns will fit perfectly onto the teeth adjacent to the gap. (In extensive cases, a temporary bridge will be installed while you are waiting for us to custom-fabricate your permanent bridge in our lab.)
Dr. Chang and his team will then design a crown based on the digital scan taken earlier and mill it that very same day!
The final restoration will then be placed in your mouth and the work will be permanent and complete!
