Do you have a tooth that is in danger of breakage? Dental crowns from Downtown Dental can improve the appearance and strength of your teeth. These crowns are tooth-colored caps placed over the entire tooth to protect it and improve its aesthetics.
What can I expect from the dental crown procedure?
The first step is a consultation with Dr. Don Mungcal. Here, your dentist evaluates your teeth to establish if you are a candidate for dental crowns or other treatment options. Next, we reshape your tooth/teeth to create room for placing your crown(s).
Our practice has a special machine (almost like a 3D printer) that custom builds your all-porcelain crown(s) in ONE DAY! It’s an incredible time-saver for you. Traditionally and without this technology, crowns would be done in two visits and created by an outside dental laboratory. This technology removes that middle man! Once the crown is complete and perfectly matches the color of your existing teeth, we bond the crown to your tooth. We then test your bite with your new crown(s) to make sure you will have a comfortable, normal bite when you leave.
Why do I need a dental crown?
In life, things don’t always go the way you want. You may wish to have healthy-looking teeth, but trauma and tooth decay may have other ideas. But all is not lost; there is hope with dental crowns.
Here are reasons Dr. Mungcal may recommend dental crowns. You need dental crowns:
- When you have a large filling (more than 50% of your original tooth structure) that is broken and needs to be replaced with something stronger
- To protect a weakened tooth or one that is already broken
- If you have a cavity that is too large for a filling
- To cover a dental implant
- To cover a stained tooth
- If you have had a root canal
A dental crown is so tiny, yet it can solve multiple cosmetic and restorative challenges.
