Dental crowns have been part of modern dentistry from the start, yet materials, techniques, and treatment planning technologies continue to evolve. Residents of Menifee, Perris, Murrieta, and Beaumont have access to these advances at Diamond Valley Dentist in Hemet, CA.
Dental crowns are sometimes referred to as caps because the hollow, tooth-shaped restoration is cemented over a tooth, like a cap fits on your head. Dr. Jergensen may recommend a crown to repair a tooth, restore function, or improve appearance in these situations:
The crown procedure requires just two visits to Diamond Valley Dentist. At the first, your mouth is numbed, and the tooth is prepared. This involves removing areas of decay or damage and shaping the tooth to hold the crown. Then, impressions are taken. These molds, along with instructions on shading, go to a dental lab where your crown is fabricated. Meanwhile, Dr. Jergensen protects the prepared tooth with a temporary composite restoration.
When you return, in a week or two, the interim crown is painlessly removed. The new crown is fitted, cemented in place, and polished. The porcelain looks very natural and resists stains. With good oral hygiene and regular checkups, your crown can last many years.Become a Diamond Valley Dentist patient for dental crowns and full range of preventive, restorative, and cosmetic dental services.
