Dental Porcelain Crowns and Caps in Rancho Bernardo & 4S Ranch
Porcelain crown and cap is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.
Although there are several types of crowns, porcelain (tooth-colored crown) is the most popular because they resemble your natural teeth. They are highly durable and will last many years, but they may eventually need to be replaced like most dental restorations. Porcelain crowns are made to match the shape, size, and color of your teeth, giving you a natural, long-lasting beautiful smile.
Reasons for porcelain crown and cap:
- Broken or fractured teeth.
- Cosmetic enhancement.
- Decayed teeth.
- Fractured fillings.
- Large fillings.
- The tooth has a root canal.
What does getting a porcelain crown and cap involve?
A crown procedure usually requires two appointments. Your first appointment will include taking several highly accurate molds (or impressions) that will be used to create your custom crown. A mold will also create a temporary crown that will stay on your tooth for approximately two weeks until a dental laboratory fabricates your new crown.
While the tooth is numb, the dentist will prepare the tooth by removing any decay and shaping the surface to fit the crown properly. Once these details are accomplished, your temporary crown will be placed with temporary cement, and your bite will be checked to ensure you are biting properly.
At your second appointment, your temporary crown will be removed, the tooth will be cleaned, and your new crown will be carefully placed to ensure accurate spacing and bite.
You will be given care instructions and encouraged to have regular dental visits to check your new crown.
Excellent Rancho Bernardo dentist. I've been seeing him for about five years and couldn't be happier. I drive out of my way to see him and he's always worth the trip. I've never had a painful experience in his office and I suffer from extreme dental phobia. My family see him as well. I recommend him to everyone. You won't be disappointed.he best to me. Highly recommended!
The first time I went here I was a little nervous seeing a new dentist. But from the second I walked in the staff put me at ease. They were very nice and knowledgeable. Even more than that Dr. Reza was the best dentist I have been to. He was gentle when checking over my teeth and made me feel a lot more comfortable. The appointment was also prompt, which I always like. Overall my cleaning was the best experience I've had at any dentist.My entire family has been coming to Dr. Hekmat for over 15 years. He is the best dentist hands down! He is gentle and understanding of my phobia of dentists. He and his staff work well together. It is easy to get an appointment for what ever dental issue arises.
Dr. Hekmat and all of his staff are gentle and friendly. They take the fear out of going to the dentist. He has done quality work on my teeth for the last three years and fixed problems I had from previous, poor quality dental work too! I am more than willing to drive 40 miles from where I live because I've never had such a great dental experience anywhere else! !
