If you have a problem with a tooth, your Temecula, CA dentist can evaluate you to determine what the right treatment might involve. For some patients, treatment can call for more than a dental filling. If you need extra support, we can provide a custom dental crown to keep your tooth safe. Crowns completely envelop teeth above your gum line. When appropriate, we can recommend that you receive one that is made to look like a natural tooth. This means you can have important protection for your bite without creating issues for the way you look!
Is A Lifelike Crown Going To Support My Bite And Protect My Tooth?
You can be relieved to hear that a lifelike crown is available, but you may have concerns about life after treatment. Will the material that matches your enamel also be strong enough to support your bite? Will you be able to count on treatment to keep your tooth safe in the long term? Materials like porcelain and zirconia can imitate the appearance of healthy enamel while being strong enough to provide valuable bite stability and strength. Zirconia provides additional strength in situations where bite pressure is a concern.
Undergoing Restorative Treatment With A Crown
Restorative treatment with a dental crown typically calls for two appointments. At the first, we carefully evaluate teeth and do preparatory work to make sure there is space for them. The measurements we take ensure that a crown will fit and look natural. At your follow-up visit, it will be put in place. After it is secured, it can provide lasting protection, which means you can bite, chew, and speak without difficulty!
We Can Help You Avoid Future Issues With Your Dental Health At Regular Exams
Regular dental exams keep you informed about your dental health, which means you can receive early warnings about problems with cavities and other concerns. Timely warnings lead to more conservative treatments—even though you can count on a crown to match your enamel, you can be glad to learn that care with a filling is still an option, as this minimizes the permanent changes to your tooth structure that are involved in care.
