Dental Crowns in Turlock, CA

Dental crowns can be built up of different materials like ceramic, metal and porcelain, and they are used to correct several problems. Our dentist near you offers an extensive array of modern restorations, including veneers, bridges and dental crowns.

What Are Dental Crowns Used For?

Crowns are custom-fitted to your teeth and encase the visible portion of the tooth until the gum line. Porcelain crowns at Healthy Smile Dental are designed to restore the integrity, shape, size and strength of a damaged tooth.

Dental Crowns in Turlock, CA, can help correct one or more of the following issues:

  • To wrap a cracked tooth or protect a weakened tooth (teeth may get weak due to decay or after a root canal treatment)
  • To support a worn down or broken tooth
  • To restore a tooth where a large portion of the tooth structure is absent due to a large cavity
  • To cover a stained or misshapen tooth
  • To cap a dental implant

Please book an appointment with Dr. Harpreet Brar to get your tooth evaluated for treatment.

Steps to Prepare a Tooth to Receive a Crown

It usually takes two dental appointments to place a crown. During the first appointment, the dentist in Turlock, CA, will assess and prepare the tooth, and during the second visit, we will attach the crown.

Tooth Evaluation and Preparation

The dentist may x-ray the tooth to check the roots and surrounding bone. If there are risks of injury to the pulp or signs of extensive decay, we will perform a root canal treatment before preparing the tooth.

We will file the chewing surface of the tooth and the sides to make space for the tooth crown. Our dentist at Healthy Smile Dental will use putty or paste to make an impression to send to the dental lab.

Placement of the Permanent Crown

After checking the fit, size and color match, Dr. Harpreet Brar will remove the temporary crown and cement the permanent one in place. The lifespan of dental crowns near you depends on several factors like oral hygiene, chewing force and teeth clenching habits.
