Dental Crowns in Reseda
A dental crown or “cap” is a tooth-shaped cover that is placed over a weakened or damaged tooth to restore its natural appearance and prevent further deterioration. Crowns are needed to replace a large filling, cover and strengthen an exposed area of a tooth following a nerve treatment, or to repair severely chipped or broken teeth for cosmetic purposes. When a dental filling is not a viable solution to correct the damage sustained by a tooth, crowns can provide a long-term solution to restoring the function of your teeth and enhancing the appearance of your child’s smile.
Crowns can be made of all metal, all-porcelain, or a combination of both. Since all crowns are custom made for each patient, it may take more than one appointment to complete your crowns. At your first visit, the area is numbed to make you comfortable. Your doctor in Reseda, CA will use a dental handpiece to shape and prepare the tooth so that the crown can properly fit over it. Impressions are then taken of the prepared tooth. A temporary crown is placed to protect the tooth, while the final crown is being made. The impressions are used to fabricate a model of your mouth, on which the final crown is made. When your final crown is ready, dental cement is placed into the crown and it is cemented to the prepared tooth. Your tooth is now restored to a healthy and functioning state!
