While the dental crown procedure has been around for decades, modern technological advances have made it an easier and longer-lasting treatment for dental problems than ever before. So if you’ve been told you need a dental crown, don’t worry! The Dental Health Group in Canoga Park can help restore your smile and oral health.
Our goal is to provide restorative dentistry that is undetectable. Our highly-qualified and experienced dentists can provide new dental crowns or replace existing crowns and fillings with restorations that feel natural and blend perfectly with your other teeth.
If you have recently moved to the Canoga Park, CA region or are a new patient at The Dental Health Group, we will start with a dental/radiographic examination to fully understand the condition of your teeth. For most patients, the dental crown procedure requires two appointments.
Appointment #1: During the first appointment, the dentist will remove decay, shape the tooth, and fit it with a temporary crown of either plastic or metal.
Appointment #2: During the second appointment, the dentist will remove the temporary crown and then fit and adjust the final crown. The new crown will be cemented into place, and you’ll leave the office with a beautiful new tooth. In addition, you will be shown the correct method for brushing and flossing to keep the crown and surrounding area clean.
Regardless of age, many people experience unexplained pain in their back teeth. This pain may be caused by hairline cracks developing in the part of the tooth that comes into contact with food. When a dentist places crowns on these teeth, it can relieve pain and discomfort and allow the person to regain full dental function and eat all kinds of foods again. In addition, for teeth near the front of the mouth, older fillings or crowns can cause appearance problems due to staining or chipping. For both of these issues, dental crowns or dental bridges can provide a pain-reducing, appearance-boosting, long-term solution.
If you’re searching for a friendly, knowledgeable dentist in the Canoga Park region that has experience with dental crown procedures, make an appointment with The Dental Health Group today. We look forward to seeing you!
