What is a Dental Crown?
Crowns are used when the original structure of the tooth needs to be restored and cannot be restored by a filling, inlay or onlay. A crown covers all surface of the tooth and restores it to its natural look, function and feeling. It can be made out of several different materials; gold, porcelain fused to metal, all ceramic. How to determine which material is best for you will be discussed at your comprehensive diagnostic appointment.
Understanding the Procedure
Two dental visits are generally necessary to complete the treatment for your new crown. At appointment one you are made comfortable with painless computer generated STA anesthesia technology and your tooth is prepared for your new crown removing decay and broken down tooth structure. Following the preparation, an impression is made of the prepared tooth and a custom shade is determined by our in house ceramist. All the information is then taken to the laboratory in our Tarzana office where your dental crown is fabricated. A temporary crown is made and placed on your tooth to protect it while your new crown fabricated. At your second appointment your temporary crown is removed and your new crown is tried in your mouth. The new custom-made crown is then permanently cemented recreating the natural tooth’s look and feel.
