Rebuild Your Smile with High-quality Dental Crowns

Damaged or decayed teeth do more harm than just ruin your smile; they can disrupt your confidence, eating ability, and general oral health. Luckily, there are options available to help get your smile to its former glory. Mid-Valley Dental Care in Northridge, California, offers dental crowns to put your smile back on track.

What are dental crowns?

Also known as dental caps, dental crowns are tooth-shaped appliances designed to cover your compromised tooth to improve its size, shape, color, and health. Unlike dental fillings, dental crowns can repair extensive tooth damage by reinforcing the remaining healthy portion. 

Dental crowns may be small, but they do a lot of “heavy lifting” in dentistry. Your dentist can recommend dental crowns to:

  • Strengthen an extensively broken or decayed tooth
  • Cover up a cosmetically unappealing tooth
  • Complete a dental implant
  • Protect and stabilize a tooth that has undergone a root canal
  • Anchor a dental bridge in place
  • Replace an old, worn-out filling

Our dental ceramists can create dental crowns from numerous materials, including zirconia, composite resin, metal, and porcelain. We prefer porcelain for its durability and aesthetic appeal. However, if you choose other materials, we will craft a dental crown aligned with your preferences.

The dental crown procedure: fix your teeth in just a few dental appointments

Traditional dental crowns require a minimum of two dental appointments. During the initial visit, we examine your teeth to ensure you are a perfect candidate for dental crowns. Next, we will explain the procedure in detail and answer your questions regarding the treatment.

Then, we etch out a small portion of your enamel to create room for a dental crown. We do this procedure after numbing your mouth to reduce discomfort. After tooth preparation, we take your bite impressions and send the images to a lab to manufacture your crown. Before letting you go, we will install a temporary crown until we receive your permanent crown.

When your crown is ready, you will book another appointment with our dental team. After a few adjustments to your crown, we use dental cement to bond your crown permanently to your tooth. Now you can enjoy your best life with your new-found smile!
