Some San Diego residents who have a weak or broken tooth may want to research dental crowns as a solution to improve their smile and overall oral health. A crown is really a cap or covering that is tooth-shaped and when it is in place, it will cover the portion of the covered tooth that is above the gum line.
Crowns can be made of metals, resin, ceramic, porcelain, or a porcelain-fused-to-metal material. Your San Diego area dentist will usually put in a temporary crown while a permanent crown is being created especially for your mouth in a dental laboratory.
Dental crowns have been used successfully in San Diego cosmetic dentistry for decades.
Many Hillcrest, Mission Hills, and Bankers Hill dentists use crowns when performing smile makeovers to cover patient’s discolored or poorly shaped teeth. Strong, natural-looking crowns are also used with dental implants.
