What are Crowns?

Dental crowns improve the appearance and function of damaged or misshapen teeth. A crown is basically a “cap” placed over an existing tooth. The crown restores the tooth to its normal shape, size, and function. Crowns can also attach bridges, cover implants, and make cosmetic improvements. Crowns can be made using various materials, such as porcelain, ceramic, or gold. Your crowns’ material will be determined by your dentist based on the location and function of the tooth and your preferences.

Dental Crowns Can:

  • Protect a weak tooth from breaking
  • Restore a tooth that has been broken or damaged
  • Cover a dental implant
  • Cover a discolored tooth
  • Make a dental bridge

The Dental Crowns Process

The first step in receiving a dental crown is a consultation with your dentist. The dentist will thoroughly examine your mouth and teeth to ensure that a dental crown is the best option for you. Most people don’t realize that there are different dental crowns in San Diego — the three most common are metal, porcelain-fused-to-metal, and all-porcelain. Your dentist will select the material based on the tooth’s location, the amount of tooth structure remaining, your bite, and your aesthetic goals.

After deciding on the right material for you, the dentist will take x-rays and impressions (molds) of your teeth. These x-rays and impressions are used to prepare the crown using the in-office 3D printing technology. While the porcelain crown is prepared, the dentist will prepare and shape your tooth to receive the dental crown. Once the dental crown is prepared, the dentist will attach it to your tooth using dental cement. The crown is polished and modified to ensure optimal aesthetic and functional results.

We Offer Tooth-Colored Porcelain Crowns

Porcelain crowns offer many benefits over other types of crowns. Perhaps the most obvious benefit is their natural appearance. Porcelain crowns are made to match the color of your teeth so they blend in and look just like your own teeth. Porcelain crowns are strong and durable and can last for a decade or more with proper care. Since porcelain is a strong material, it’s not easily damaged. Furthermore, porcelain is hypoallergenic, so there’s no risk of allergies. That’s why we primarily offer tooth-colored dental crowns in San Diego.

Benefits of Porcelain Crowns:

  • Make your smile look better by covering up damaged or misshapen teeth
  • Improve your bite by restoring a tooth to its original shape
  • Make it easier to chew by covering up a damaged tooth
  • Protect a weak tooth from breaking
  • Replace a missing tooth by covering a dental implant
  • Look completely natural and perfect
  • Improve overall self-esteem, confidence, and comfort

Caring For Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are very strong, but it’s still important to take care of them. Be sure to brush your teeth twice daily and floss at least once daily. You must also avoid biting your nails, chewing hard candy, and eating ice. These hard objects can damage your dental crown. Furthermore, you must visit the dentist once every 6 to 12 months for regular checkups.
