Dental Crowns


Dental Crowns at Portola SmilesA crown is a covering that will wrap and protect the entire surface of a tooth, allowing it to look and function just like the original tooth. Crowns work to strengthen the tooth while protecting the existing structure, extending the life of the tooth longer than it would be with a filling or another restoration.

Reasons for Choosing a Dental Crown


Dental crowns can correct a variety of problems that you might be experiencing with your teeth:
•  Fractured or broken teeth
•  Severely decayed teeth
•  Cosmetic imperfections
•  Fractured fillings
•  Tooth protection needed after a root canal


The Dental Crown Procedure


If you'll be getting a dental crown, you can plan on having two appointments to complete the process. At your first visit, the tooth will be prepared by removing decay, and the surface will be shaped so it can fit the crown. We will take impressions of your teeth so your customized crown can be created, and you'll likely wear a temporary restoration while we wait for your crown to be finished.

At your follow-up appointment, we'll take off your temporary crown and will carefully place the permanent one in place. We'll also ensure proper bite and spacing.

After your appointment, we'll encourage you to follow up with us regularly. While proper oral hygiene is essential, you'll also need regular dental care to ensure that your crown is in the best possible shape.
