What is a dental crown?

A dental crown, also known as a «cap,» is placed atop a damaged tooth to enhance its appearance and strength. Shaped like the original tooth, it covers the visible portion above the gum line and is affixed with special cement.

Are dental crowns a good fit for me?

Dr. Hurtado may suggest a crown for many reasons. A crown can cover a dental implant or a discolored or oddly-shaped tooth. In addition to making a tooth more aesthetically appealing, a crown can serve a practical purpose by strengthening a natural tooth. Teeth that are weakened by decay or extremely large fillings are at risk of breaking unless they’re strengthened with a crown. Many patients are great candidates for dental crowns, for both cosmetic and restorative reasons. Whether you need a crown to fix the appearance of a tooth or strengthen a weak tooth, a dental crown can protect teeth for years to come.

Why choose a porcelain crown?

Dental crowns are made from various materials, but porcelain crowns match tooth color well. Porcelain fused to metal crowns look natural. However, porcelain crowns may cause more wear on teeth. All-ceramic crowns suit those with metal sensitivities.

What happens when I get a crown?

The dental crown procedure typically involves two visits. During the first appointment, digital X-rays are taken to assess the tooth’s condition. Dr. Cesar Hurtado DDS will then administer anesthesia, reshape the tooth, and take impressions for a custom crown. A temporary crown is placed until the permanent one is ready.
