Various factors affect the overall strength and look of our teeth. Many people, at some time or another, experience problems that require repair. Teeth that have been cracked, chipped, fractured from a large amalgam filling, discolored, or otherwise damaged may be repaired with custom designed crowns. Dental crowns are often recommended after root canal therapy and are incorporated into tooth replacement procedures like dental bridges and dental implants . Dental crowns are fixed restorations that can remain intact for many years after careful placement by your dentist.

A crown is like a coat of armor placed over an existing tooth. The crown covers the entire visible portion of a tooth, making it look like new. More importantly, covering a damaged tooth with a dental crown restores the structure needed for optimal chewing. The crown protects the underlying tooth structure that has been weakened, and absorbs the force placed on the tooth during chewing.

Actual Patient Review

Dental Crowns Google Review ~ Liliana A.

After a dental “emergency” after work, I contacted Dr. Luu’s office and was seen that same night. She took her time in explaining what was going on with my tooth and how she can help me. I explained my fears and sensitivity to pain, and she assured me she would take good care of me. Well next day I come in for treatment and absolutely couldnt have had a better experience! (FYI) I felt so calm that I fell asleep during a root canal – I am so glad I found her office. Dr. Luu and her staff are very welcoming. I dont look forward to having to go to the dentist for treatment, but Dr. Luu and her staff make it a more pleasant and calming experience – I have referred my family and friends to her and have great things from them as well.

Repairing teeth with dental crowns takes only two visits to your dentist. In the first visit, the damaged tooth is prepared for the dental crown. Dr. Luu will precisely remove any damaged tooth structure and will shape the tooth for its new coat. An impression is made, serving as a guide in the dental lab, where crowns are expertly crafted. Before leaving this first visit, you will be fitted with a temporary crown that will be removed by your dentist when the time comes to place your permanent porcelain crown.

Dental crowns, through the years, have been made from materials such as gold, metal alloy, and porcelain. Our patients are treated with metal-free porcelain crowns, which mimic the appearance of natural teeth to such a degree that restorations blend in seamlessly with surrounding teeth. Crafted from the highest quality porcelain, our dental crowns are made to fit perfectly onto the prepared tooth, where they will protect and serve for many years with proper care.
