Dental Crowns in La Verne

Restore Your Smile

At some point in our lives, we may encounter dental issues requiring more protection than a simple dental filling. When that time comes, dental crowns are one such solution that can help repair and restore damaged or weakened teeth. 

What is a Dental Crown (Cap)?

Dental crowns, sometimes known as caps, are dental restorations that fit over a damaged or weakened tooth to restore its shape, size, and strength. Crowns can be made from a variety of materials, including porcelain, ceramic, metal, or a combination of materials. At Prizm Dental in La Verne, CA, Dr. Choi prefers to use high-quality porcelain to help your smile shine.

Why Do You Need a Dental Crown?

A dental crown may be necessary for a variety of reasons. Some of the most common reasons you might need a dental crown in La Verne are:

  • Repair a damaged or broken tooth
  • Cover a dental implant
  • Protect a weakened tooth
  • Improve the appearance of a tooth

The Dental Crown Procedure

If you have a damaged tooth, Dr. Choi will examine the full tooth structure to determine the extent of the damage and the best course of action. If a crown is necessary, the tooth will be prepared by removing any decay or damaged enamel and shaping it so that a crown can fit over the entire tooth surface above the gumline.

Once the tooth is prepared, Dr. Choi will take a digital impression of your teeth to create a custom crown that fits perfectly. The crown will be made in a dental laboratory and can take a couple of weeks to be completed. In the meantime, you will be fitted with a temporary crown to protect the tooth.

When the permanent crown is ready, Dr. Choi will remove the temporary crown and place the permanent one over your tooth. The crown will be secured in place using special dental cement and adjustments will be made to ensure a comfortable fit.
