Dental Crowns for Damaged Teeth
When your teeth are chipped, damaged, or decayed, your dentist can help. Our dentists understand even minor damage to the teeth can lead to further problems down the road, so it’s important to undergo restorative and preventive care early on.
Dental crowns can repair tooth damage and transform the way your smile looks when the teeth have been damaged, misshapen, or decayed. Dr. Kandar and his team have made it our goal to make sure your teeth are beautiful and protected for the long term!
What are Dental Crowns?
Dental crowns are an effective way to both protect your teeth and restore their appearance. Crowns are caps made of materials like porcelain that are fitted over your natural teeth to protect them from further wear, decay, or breakage. They look and function just like your natural teeth, seamlessly filling gaps ti improve your smile’s appearance.
At UNO DENTAL, our team will recommend the best options in state-of-the-art dental crowns for your smile makeover or restorative treatment plan — custom-shade porcelain dental crowns included!
As dental restorations, crowns have a variety of effective uses, including:
- Protecting weakness in the tooth
- Keeping the tooth together if cracking has occurred
- Restoring a broken tooth
- Restoring a worn-down tooth
- Protecting large fillings
- Holding a dental bridge in place
- Covering up misshapen or discolored teeth
- Covering up teeth that have undergone a root canal
While there are many different reasons you might opt for a crown, the biggest benefit is that it both completes and protects your smile. With the help of our cosmetic team at UNO DENTAL, you can feel confident in your oral health for the long term with a unique treatment plan and a pampered experience at our luxurious San Francisco office.
When your meet with Dr. Kandar, you’ll enjoy quality, customized care for your crowns and overall oral health!
How Does Porcelain Dental Crown Placement Work?
At UNO DENTAL, porcelain crowns are placed over the course of a few different appointments. First, you’ll meet with Dr. Kandar and discuss your goals for restorative and cosmetic care, we can begin creating the right treatment plan for you. We’ll take X-rays or scans of the teeth and bone surrounding it so we can determine if there’s any decay, infection, or injury that will need to be addressed first.
Then, your teeth will be prepared for a crown. Throughout the procedure, we’ll make sure you’re comfortable and relaxed. A comfortable impression or scan will be made of your teeth so that your crown can be fabricated at a dental lab. You'll be provided with a temporary crown to wear.
You’ll return to our San Francisco dental office for another appointment, so your new crown can be checked for fit and appearance before being put in place. Dr. Kandar will help you check and maintain your dental crown results well into the future!
How Can I Get the Best Results From My Porcelain Crown Treatment?
To get the most long-term use out of your crown, it’s important to take care of it like your natural teeth. This means brushing twice daily and flossing nightly, as well as avoiding sugary drinks and food. You should meet with Dr. Kandar regularly to make sure the crown doesn’t affect your bite or otherwise put your teeth at risk.
Crowns are designed to last for ten years or more, but this can depend on how much wear you put on your crown. Things like grinding your teeth, chewing ice or hard candies, biting your fingernails, and using your teeth to open things can wear down your crown faster than normal. The UNO DENTAL can help make sure you’re getting the most out of your crowns with professional care and a supportive environment. We're here to ensure you love your smile!
