Dental Crowns in Garden Grove, Orange County
Professionally placed crowns can help to fix minor dental problems and improve the natural look of your smile. At Precision Dental, we provide our patients in Garden Grove, CA, with porcelain crowns and caps as an option to repair different kinds of tooth damage, including:
- To restore a severely decayed, worn down, or broken tooth
- To cover a severely damaged tooth
- To support a dental bridge
- To strengthen a tooth that has been weakened following root canal therapy
- To replace a missing tooth
Dental crowns, also known as caps, are designed to encase the entire surface of a damaged tooth. Generally, crowns help to strengthen weak teeth or to restore damaged teeth to their original shape, size, and function. They can also be used to improve the alignment and appearance of worn teeth.
The Dental Crowns Fitting Procedure
Dental crowns are usually fitted in two appointments spaced 10 days apart. On your first visit, the doctor will make the damaged tooth ready for the procedure and take an impression of your mouth, which will be used in the lab to create your custom crowns. During this period, you will wear a temporary crown to cover the prepared tooth.
On your second visit, that crown will be replaced by your custom permanent crown cemented in place. For severely damaged teeth with large cavities, you may need a preliminary filling before the crown placement to stabilize the crown and ensure that it fits properly.
