There are many types of dental restorations, including dental crowns. A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and appearance. At Studio 1 Dental, we provide tooth-colored, aesthetic dental crowns. Dr. David J. Berg may recommend a dental crown in Sacramento, California, to:
– Hold a weak tooth together
– Restore a broken tooth
– Support a dental bridge
– Restore a tooth that has extensive decay
– Restore a tooth that has undergone root canal therapy
– Improve the appearance of a tooth
Before placing a dental crown, our dentist will first examine the tooth and take X-rays of the tooth’s root and the surrounding bone. Your tooth will then be numbed so that it can be prepared and shaped for the crown. An impression of the tooth is then made so that your crown can be custom made. A shade will also be selected that closely matches that of your natural teeth.
Once your dental crown is complete, our dentist will check the fit and color. If everything is as it should be, the new crown is permanently cemented into place.
