In need of a dental crown? At Marcos Ortega DDS, we provide the dental care you need with exceptional service you deserve. At our San Diego practice, you’ll always get the royal treatment.
A dental crown is a covering for a tooth that has been damaged and/or worked on. Shaped like a tooth and placed over the original, it restores the shape, size, and strength of the tooth, while improving its appearance.
A dental crown may become necessary to protect a weak tooth, or to restore pone that has been severely worn down. A crown is also used after a procedure like a root canal, when much of the natural tooth has been removed out of necessity.
Like dental implants and dentures, crowns are a form of restorative dentistry, the goal of which is to restore damaged teeth to as close to their original appearance as possible. It is not to be confused with cosmetic dentistry, which refers to care designed solely to enhance the looks of your smile.
There is, however, some overlap. For example, the use of white fillings takes care of the cavities and makes your smile more beautiful. Other procedures used in cosmetic and general dentistry are veneers, inlays/onlays, braces, teeth whitening, soft-tissue grafts, crown lengthening, tooth implants, and dental bonding.
Dr. Marcos Ortega offers some of the best dental crown options to his San Diego patients. He’s been providing these services, as well as a full range of dental treatments, since 1986.
