Crowns for tooth restoration in Sacramento
Repairing the smile is sometimes necessary. Problems can arise that need to be addressed for health and wellness. This includes covering a tooth to add an extra layer of protection. Sacramento area dentists achieve this with the placement of dental crowns for tooth coverage.
Dental crowns have been used in general and cosmetic dentistry for years. In many instances, these porcelain “caps” are bonded over natural teeth to add protection. This is because the porcelain is strong and durable and can cover teeth that have been weakened or broken. Repairing these teeth is important to maintaining the structure and avoiding further damage.
Crowns are fabricated to bond over the top of a tooth. They are made after the tooth has been prepared with the removal of enamel. Removing enamel is important, as it allows the crown to be bonded in place without adding bulk. This ensures the restoration looks completely natural and blends in beautifully with the smile.
Crowns are made by a dental laboratory chosen by our professional dentists Drs. Kosta J. Adams and Kristen J. Adams. The laboratory receives specific information in regards to color, shape, and size of the tooth, as well as the impressions taken after preparation. This ensures proper fit and seamless integration once placed. Patients may have a temporary crown placed for functionality and aesthetics. The entire process takes approximately one to two weeks and can provide years, sometimes decades, of repair for one or more teeth. The longevity of this repair depends on daily home care from patients and regular examinations by the dentist.
Drs. Kosta J. Adams and Kristen J. Adams are professionals ready to assist patients in a wide range of treatments. They understand how a beautiful smile can impact one’s self-esteem, as well as how a healthy smile can last a lifetime.
