Dental crowns are custom-made restorations designed to strengthen and preserve teeth. It’s called a crown because it covers the entire visible portion of your tooth, like a cap. A crown can return structure, strength, and function to a tooth with extensive decay or damage. Fitting snugly and functioning as a healthy tooth, a crown will protect your smile from further damage and preserve the jaw's correct natural alignment.
Depending on your preferences, you can choose between a metal, porcelain fused to metal, or all-porcelain crown. Dr. Deol uses a precise color-matching system to make sure that the color of the crown is virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth. Our most popular dental crown material is porcelain because it’s durable, stain-resistant, and offers several unique benefits.
The best way to know whether you’re a candidate for a dental crown is to call our dental office to schedule a consultation. Dr. Deol will carefully examine your smile before making a proper recommendation. However, there are some common signs that you may need a crown, including:
We offer dental crowns because of the many benefits they can bring our patients, including:
Another advantage of dental crowns is that they don’t require a special routine to care for. Simply brush your teeth twice a day for 2 minutes each and floss your teeth once. You should also be sure to maintain routine dental checkups and cleanings with your dentist in San Ramon. During these visits, we’ll clean and examine your smile like normal, but we’ll also confirm that your crown is in good shape. Additionally, you can avoid chewing on nonfood items and ice cubes to protect your crown.
If it sounds like a dental crown is right for you, or if you have any questions, contact our dental office today!
