Natural and Long Lasting Dental Crowns

Our doctor and team are experts at preparing and installing dental crowns, so do not fear - they will make your dental crown treatment pain-free.

Dental crowns are used to restore or correct damaged teeth. Specifically, it is a porcelain cap that fits over the section of the tooth that is visible above the gumline. Crowns are used to cover and protect teeth that have been broken or damaged and cannot be fixed with dental fillings. Dental crowns are also used to cover and protect teeth that have had root canal treatment. It is always our goal to fix your natural tooth first, but if you have a broken tooth or have recently had endodontic treatment, the team at Mid-Wilshire Dental Care may suggest placing a dental crown.
Dental crowns are placed in two visits. During your first visit, the dentist will numb your tooth and remove the decay from the tooth. Once all of the decay is gone, the tooth will be shaped, cleaned, and prepared for an impression. An impression is taken so that a mold can be sent to the lab. The crown is crafted in our dental lab, and once it is finished, you will return for your second visit. During your second visit, the dental crown is secured with dental bonding to your tooth. Dental crowns are a great option to treat and strengthen your smile. If you have a broken or decayed tooth, give us a call to see if a dental crown may be the treatment for you. Our doctor and team at Mid-Wilshire Dental Care are experts at crown placement, so you can rest assured that you will receive the best treatment at the most affordable price.
