5-Star-Rated Dental Crowns near Carlsbad, CA

Are Dental Crowns the Right Solution for You?

Your tooth may require more than a dental filling if you have extensive tooth decay. It may be necessary to cover the tooth after removing all of the tooth decay if the decay threatens the health of your surrounding teeth and gums. A dental crown may also be necessary if your tooth decay is in a difficult spot to fill effectively. At McElroy Smiles By Design, our dentists can fit you with our 5-star-rated crowns near Carlsbad, CA.

What Is a Dental Crown? 

Much like a crown that sits on the head of royalty, a dental crown sits on top of a tooth with a large filling to help strengthen it when there isn’t enough of the tooth remaining to hold the filling. Crowns are also used to attach bridges, protect a weak tooth from breaking or restore a broken tooth. Additionally, a crown can be used to cover teeth that are badly shaped or discolored or to cover a dental implant.

What Can You Expect During Your Dental Crown Appointment?

We will take an impression of your teeth for a dental crown, making necessary modifications to form a complete tooth. The new tooth will function as a cover for your damaged one. You may have an initial visit to prepare the tooth, with a secondary visit to crown the tooth if action is needed before the new tooth can be ready. We will salvage as much of your existing tooth as we can before we place the dental crown over it.
