Dental Crowns in Encinitas, CA

Your Healthy Smile Is Our Top Priority

If you suffer from cavities that have resulted in extensive tooth decay or chipped or cracked teeth that are beyond normal repair, it might be necessary for you to get a dental crown. Crowns are made of ceramic or porcelain materials and are cemented on top of a tooth that is not salvageable. The goal of dental crowns is to protect and restore the natural shape and appearance of your tooth. Our custom-made all-ceramic dental crowns in Encinitas, CA, not only make your smile look great, but they will also provide strength and support the structure of your tooth.

What Is a Crown?

The crown is a cap that is custom-made to fit your exact tooth structure. The dentist prepares the tooth, takes a mold of the area, and provides temporary protection for the tooth until your permanent crown is made. You may consider this procedure if you have any of the following:

  • Severe discoloration
  • Decay or damage
  • A crack or chip
  • A misaligned bite
  • Weakness due to root canal therapy

Dental crown appointments can be time-consuming, especially with a busy schedule. Here at McElroy Smiles by Design, our dental team is happy to offer an incredible alternative – CEREC digital dentistry. This method allows us to take you throughout the entire restoration process (impressions, creation, final placement, and more) in just one appointment, saving valuable time while creating the same exceptional results.

Ask Us About Our Dental Crown Warranty

Sometimes, despite our best efforts, restorations can fail for multiple reasons, such as breakage from excessive teeth grinding, or simply biting down on a hard object like silverware or a bone. To help you offset the cost of replacing a cracked dental crown, we provide a 5-year limited warranty on all of our dental crowns in Encinitas, CA.
