Restore Your Teeth with Same-day Dental Crowns
A dental crown is a custom-made cap that covers the entire visible part of the tooth. When a tooth needs its shape, size, strength, and appearance improved, Dr. Belnap and Dr. Jergensen may recommend dental crowns in Rancho Peñasquitos and Ramona, CA. A dental crown may be placed to do the following:
- Protect a weak tooth from breaking
- Hold a cracked tooth together
- Restore a broken or badly worn tooth
- Cover and support a tooth with a large dental filling
- Anchor a dental bridge
- Cover a misshaped or stained tooth
- Cover a dental implant
- Improve the appearance of a tooth
Our dentists will remove a small amount of enamel from the tooth receiving the dental crown. This will allow room for the dental crown in your smile. Digital impressions of the tooth and those above or below it are taken so that your dental crown can be constructed. Traditionally, the construction of a dental crown takes two or three weeks. However, by using CEREC® technology, our dentists can design, construct, and place your dental crown in one visit. Our dentists will permanently cement your dental crown, which will match the shade of your natural teeth, in place.
