Treatment with Dental Crowns

Dental crowns treatment begins with a consultation and dental exam. Next, Dr. Naguib will prepare the affected tooth by removing a bit of the tooth structure and cleaning it. This preparation ensures that the dental crown will fit securely onto the tooth. Then he will take dental impressions of the tooth or teeth receiving the crown using CEREC tools and software.

Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics (CEREC), or Ceramic REConstruction, uses computer software to quickly take digital impressions. It then generates a precise fitting temporary crown. After several weeks, your dentist will place the permanent crowns.

The Benefits of Dental crowns at Palmdale Dental Care

Your new dental crowns can last ten or more years. You need to maintain them with good oral hygiene and regular visits to our dental office. However, if your dental crown chips or becomes loose, we can quickly repair it in our Palmdale or Lancaster office.

Dental crowns offer many advantages to our patients. Crowns can:

  • Help support damaged teeth
  • Protect weak teeth
  • Protect teeth after a root canal
  • Enhance the appearance of teeth
  • Hold dental fillings

But dental crowns can perform a lot of other duties as well. They’re a vital part of many dental restorations. For example, a custom dental crown is often the first choice to complete a dental implant prosthetic.

Crowns can also help support dental bridges. Typically, a dental bridge uses your natural teeth as anchor teeth. But putting dental crowns on those teeth can help prevent damage because of the pressure of anchoring that dental bridge.

Another benefit is that dental crowns completely cover the natural tooth. For example, teeth grinding and clenching causes worn teeth. Fortunately, a crown can restore worn-down teeth back to their natural shape and size.

Since they cover the entire tooth, they’re a good solution for misshapen teeth too! Do you have teeth that aren’t responding to traditional teeth whitening techniques? Our dentist can custom-match a dental crown to the shade of white you desire. Then he can cover the stained tooth with it.

Dental Crowns and Missing Teeth

Dental crowns can replace a lot tooth at the root with dental implants. A dental implant consists of a titanium post that your dentist or oral surgeon inserts into the jawbone.

After a healing period of 3 to 6 months, the dentist will cap off the post with a dental crown. Because dental implants can secure dentures and dental bridges, we can also use dental crowns in those restorations.

Dental Crowns FAQs

Are there any preparations I need before receiving my dental crown?

You will require two dental appointments to receive your dental crown. Your dentist will reshape and recontour your tooth so that your new crown will fit properly. Then he will form an impression of your tooth, and place a temporary crown during your first visit. Your second visit is when your dentist will actually fit your permanent crown and adjust your bite if necessary.

Can a dentist repair a chipped crown?

Yes, our dentist can repair a chipped crown if the damage is minor. As long as it is not compromising the structure and fit of the crown. If the damage is too large, we will recommend replacing the crown altogether. Replacing the crown will ensure that crown damage does not cause infections, unnecessary tooth sensitivity, and other issues.

Does a dental crown feel any different from a normal tooth?

No, your new modern dental crown will fit precisely in your mouth. After an initial adjustment period, you will rapidly adjust to your new restoration. You might even forget that you have it after a while. Our dental crowns seamlessly blend in with your natural teeth for a beautiful result.

How long do dental crowns last?

With proper care, you can expect your new dental crown to last several years or longer. Brush, floss, and schedule regular visits to your dentist. If a dental crown becomes cracked or loose, it may require replacement sooner rather than later. Our dentist can address this as well.

Can a dentist remove a dental crown?

Even though dental crowns are extremely strong, they are still susceptible to damage. They need removal and replacement if cracked, chipped, or otherwise impacted by trauma. Our dentist can remove the damaged crown and create a replacement to continue to protect your natural tooth structure underneath.

What age do people get crowns?

Patients of all ages can get dental crowns. They are reliable for repairing a significantly damaged tooth because of dental trauma, breakage, or tooth decay.
