Repairing Your Teeth With Ceramic Crowns

When a tooth is damaged, or if major oral health concerns develop such as an infected tooth, then you need a restoration. Our team can offer repair with ceramic crowns, custom-made for your smile. In today’s blog, your Cerritos, CA, dentist talks about restoring smiles with our ceramic dental crowns, so you can smile without hesitation!

When a Tooth Requires a Restoration

A dental crown covers the entire visible portion of your tooth, all the structure above the gum line. Our team can use this to address restorative issues too severe for a filling or bonding procedure, and to help prevent major complications from arising. Our team could use them to treat advanced tooth decay, or even address infection by completing a root canal procedure. They could repair cracks, chipped, or broken teeth, and restore teeth worn down by bruxism (teeth grinding). We could use them to improve overall bite balance too, and to improve chewing function. As we will discuss further on, we can even replace your missing teeth!

Creating and Placing a Dental Restoration

We start by numbing the tooth being treated, and then we remove structure from them to make room for your new ceramic crown. Our team then takes detailed images and measurements, which we use in a dental lab setting to design your crown. The ceramic material is very strong and durable, but can also be color matched to blend with your smile too. Our team then attaches the completed restoration with a powerful bonding agent. You now have a crown that blends with your smile and provides a solution for your oral health concerns, so you can smile with confidence.

Securing Tooth Replacement

Our team could also use them to address the missing teeth in your smile, protecting your smile from complications like misalignment and trouble eating. We could use one or two to support a dental bridge for minor tooth loss, or to restore a single tooth dental implant too. Again, we take steps to ensure they blend with your smile and provide a durable chewing surface, one that can handle daily bite forces and pressures. If you have a tooth in need of repair or restoration, then don’t hesitate to give us a call! We can’t wait to offer treatment to help you avoid major complications and obtain a healthy and attractive smile.
