Dental crowns have been a staple in dentistry for decades. They are versatile and play a key role in restorative, cosmetic, and tooth replacement treatments.
A dental crown in San Jose, CA is a tooth-shaped cover that goes over your tooth. We always color it and fabricate it to resemble your neighboring teeth.
Dental Crowns in Tooth Replacement
Missing teeth can impact many areas of your life, from your confidence to your ability to chew, from your oral health to how you speak.
Dental implants in San Jose, CA are similar to natural teeth because they address all these issues, and they work in concert with dental crowns.
A dental implant is a replacement root surgically placed in your jaw. Over several months it integrates with the bone. When this process is complete, we top it with a dental crown.
A dental bridge closes the gap in your smile with restoring teeth housed between dental crowns. The crowns cover healthy adjacent teeth on either side of your smile gap, allowing the prosthetic teeth to fill the space.
Dental Crowns in Restorative Dentistry
If you have a broken or damaged tooth—through decay, injury, or following a root infection—your dentist may opt to restore the tooth with a dental crown. It is often the dental crown that saves you from needing a tooth extracted.
Dental crowns can also restore aesthetics by concealing discolored, chipped, unevenly spaced, or misshapen teeth.
