Dental crowns, often referred to as dental caps, are required for teeth that have more extensive damage that cannot be repaired with a filling. This extremely reliable procedure allows for the dental crown to be placed over the tooth in order to improve shape, size and strength which provides long-lasting results!
Dental crowns are made of porcelain which allows for it to match the color of the surrounding teeth, making the dental crown virtually undetectable. Dental crowns do not require any sort of special treatment and should be cared for just as you would care for your other teeth. By brushing and flossing regularly as well as visiting our dentist in Encino, your crowns will remain intact and fully functional.
Some key benefits from having a dental crown include:
- Help restore misshaped or severely discolored teeth
- Correct chewing and bite problems
- Are able to act as anchors for bridges
- Assist in protecting a weak tooth from problems like decay or breakage
- Redesign your smile, boosting your confidence
How long does dental crown placement take?
Dental crowns are fit in as little as two visits. Initially, our dentist’s priority is to remove any decay from the tooth and prep it for dental crown placement by shaping the tooth and fitting it with a temporary crown. In the second visit, the permanent dental crown is placed, creating a brand new, natural-looking tooth. The dental crown procedure does not require any down time, which means you may return to work or school immediately.
The goal in our dentist office is to provide patient comfort and to create naturally, beautiful smiles. We have extensive dental crown experience, creating crowns that are virtually undetectable. Please visit our dentist in Encino, Dr. Cerveny, to find out more information on dental crowns.
