Porcelain Crowns in Hanford, CA
A dental crown—also known as a “tooth cap” or tooth crown—is an attractive, effective tool that can improve your dental health in more ways than you’d expect. These tightly-fitting caps are created to perfectly cover the tooth underneath, and they can protect damaged teeth, conceal discolorations, and more.
We use porcelain crowns, which means you can expect any dental crown you receive in our Hanford dental office to maintain the color, strength, and durability of your natural tooth.
What Is the Process of Receiving a Tooth Crown?
We always start the tooth crown process by numbing the area so you can undergo your procedure in total comfort. Once this is done, your dentist will remove a small portion of the enamel from the affected tooth so the tooth cap can be placed.
Your dentist will take impressions of the tooth and send those impressions away to make your permanent dental crown. In the meantime, you’ll be given a temporary crown to wear. Once the permanent porcelain crowns have been created, they will be bonded to your teeth.
Your teeth may not feel any different, but you’ll have all the aesthetic and dental health benefits of porcelain crowns!
Do I Need a Dental Crown?
Our porcelain crowns for teeth can provide dental benefits for all kinds of conditions. The following are all reasons why your Lemoore dentist might recommend a tooth cap or tooth crown:
- You’ve recently had a root canal, and that tooth needs to be protected from future infections.
- You have a dental implant that needs to be restored with the visible tooth surface.
- You’d like to have the size or shape of a tooth changed for an improved smile.
- You have one or more teeth with stains or discolorations that could be concealed with a dental crown.
- You have a cavity that has progressed too far for a standard dental filling.
