To Help You Achieve The Goal Of Exceptional Dental
Health And Wellness.
A Dental Crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is cemented onto your natural tooth, resulting in long-lasting and fully functional tooth restoration!
They are an excellent choice of restoration for many types of dental issues, such as:
To strengthen and protect a decayed tooth, e.g. one with decay too large to be repaired by a filling
To restore a badly worn down, chipped, or cracked tooth
To change or restore the shape, size, or color of a tooth
To complete a larger dental restoration, such as a dental implant or bridge
After it’s been confirmed that your tooth and surrounding structure are in good health, getting a Dental Crown typically requires two visits.
During the first visit, Walnut Creek Cosmetic Dentist Dr. Julia Lee will numb the area and shape the tooth so that a crown can fit over it. They will take an impression, which will be sent to a dental lab where the crown is created to beautifully match your other teeth.
On the second visit, Walnut Creek Cosmetic Dentist Dr. Julia Lee will thoroughly inspect the permanent crown to ensure the correct size, shape, and color. He will then remove the temporary crown and cement the permanent crown into place, again checking to be sure that fit, bite, and aesthetics are correct.
