A dental crown is used by our Simi Valley dentist to restore a tooth that has been damaged. There are various types of dental crowns made of different materials; however, our dentist will help you choose which is right for you. Dental crowns are specially designed for every patient and are shaped to fit over the existing tooth, restoring its strength, size and appearance.
How are dental crown placed?
While visiting our dentist for a dental crown, expect the procedure to be relatively simple and non-invasive. Anesthesia will be used to completely numb the area for maximum comfort while the tooth is prepared for the dental crown. Depending on the type of dental crown used, a temporary crown may be placed while waiting for the permanent crown. Once ready, you will come back to our dental office and the permanent crown will be cemented into place.
Dental Crowns offers an assortment of benefits, including:
- Long-lasting durability
- Tooth protection from further decay or infection
- Restored chewing abilities
- A healthier smile
