If you suffer from cavities that have resulted in extensive tooth decay, or have chipped or cracked teeth that are beyond normal repair, you may need a dental crown. Crowns are made of ceramic or porcelain materials and are cemented on top of a tooth that is not salvageable by fillings or other means. 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 near San Marcos, CA, not only make your smile look great, but they will also provide strength and support the structure of your tooth to restore health and functionality.
The crown is a cap that is custom-made to fit your exact tooth structure. It looks and functions like a regular tooth. First, our 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:
Dental crown appointments can take time and may be difficult to make or keep 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 through the entire restoration process (impressions, creation, final placement, and more) in just one appointment, saving valuable time while attaining the same exceptional results.
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 back up our work and provide a 5-year limited warranty on all of our dental crowns!
