A dental crown can perform a variety of restorative and cosmetic functions, reinforcing the structure of a damaged tooth and restoring its appearance. A crown can also replace a missing tooth in combination with a dental implant. At Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry Center, we can craft a custom porcelain or zirconia crown, designed to blend seamlessly with your smile and provide long-lasting results. Dr. Jose Valenzuela, Jr. has been practicing in Los Algodones, Baja California, Mexico, for over 25 years and can implement gentle yet effective techniques to ensure your comfort.
A dental crown is a cap, designed to cover the visible portion of a tooth. It can add strength to a tooth compromised by damage or decay and beauty to a tooth that is discolored or misshapen. We may recommend a dental crown if you have:
In some cases, Dr. Valenzuela will also place a crown for cosmetic reasons. If you have severe discoloration that cannot be addressed with teeth whitening, a crown may be an effective solution. During your consultation. we can review your unique dental needs and cosmetic goals to determine whether a crown is the best treatment for you.
For your comfort, we can begin treatment by administering a local anesthetic. For patients with dental anxiety or phobia, we also offer sedation dentistry to put you at ease during your procedure. Once you are completely numb, we can reshape your tooth in preparation for your dental crown. This step is necessary, as it ensures the crown will fit comfortably in your smile, without disrupting your bite.
At Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry Center, we can craft a custom porcelain or zirconia crown, designed to blend seamlessly with your smile.
After prepping your tooth, we can take impressions, which will be sent to our trusted laboratory (or used to create same-day crowns in our office). We can also provide the lab with detailed information regarding the shade of your restoration, and any additional measurements. Over the next two weeks, laboratory technicians can custom-craft your restoration using porcelain or zirconia. In the interim, we can place a temporary cap to prevent sensitivity. Once the final crown is finished, you can return to our office to have it placed. Dr. Valenzuela can check to ensure a proper fit, before cementing it securely to your tooth. Once complete. you can enjoy restored dental function and feel confident in the appearance of your smile.
At Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry Center, we strive to provide our patients with the highest quality care. As such, we incorporate only the most durable and realistic materials into our treatments. As opposed to metal, porcelain and zirconia provide lifelike results. Porcelain is often chosen for its aesthetic appeal, as it can be matched to the sheen and translucency of your smile. Zirconia is one of the strongest materials in dentistry and can be placed on either the front or back teeth. Because our crowns do not have an underlying metal base, they will not darken or change color over time, providing long-lasting results.
Our team is dedicated to your care and comfort and can address any questions you may have about dental crowns, the treatment cost, and the process. To find out if you would benefit from a dental crown, contact us online or call our practice today at (866) 937-9066.
