Dental Crowns in La Verne, CA
About Dental Crowns
Porcelain dental crowns or esthetic crowns in La Verne at Inland Dental Group protect the teeth from decay or damage. The crown is placed directly over a damaged tooth to restore the tooth’s original shape. This helps to avoid extractions and to maintain both the function and appearance of a tooth in the mouth. When a tooth is lost, the jawbone where the tooth is removed deteriorates. Dental crowns help to prevent this from occurring and to restore oral health the best possible way.
How They’re Done
First, a mold is taken of the natural tooth. Our professional staff will use this mold to create a temporary crown that will be custom made for each dental patient. Next, the tooth is prepared. This involves removing decay and building it up so that the tooth is protected the best way possible. The rest of the tooth is adjusted so the crown will fit properly. Next, a mold is taken of the prepared tooth and sent to the lab to fabricate the permanent crown, or digital mold of the prepared tooth is taken, and the permanent crown is milled on site. A temporary crown is placed for a patient to wear until the permanent one is complete. The cost of a crown will depend on the type chosen. Our staff can explain all costs associated with this dental procedure before you commit to it. Generally, there is no pain associated with a crown. The bite will need to be adjust to the crown, which makes the crown as comfortable as the natural teeth.
