If a tooth needs its shape, size, and strength restored, a dental crown may be needed. A dental crown is a tooth-shaped dental restoration that will cover the entire visible portion of a tooth. Dr. John Bosak, Jr. may recommend a dental crown in Granada Hills, California, for:
– A tooth that has had a large dental filling or multiple dental fillings placed
– A weak tooth that is in danger of breaking
– A broken or cracked tooth
– A tooth with a dental implant
– A misshapen or badly stained tooth
– A tooth that has undergone root canal treatment
When you come in to have a dental crown placed, our dentist will first shape the tooth to allow room for the dental crown in your mouth. Then impressions will be taken of the tooth and the surrounding teeth so that your crown can be custom made. Once your crown is ready, our dentist will check the fit and color. After any needed adjustments have been made, the dental crown will be permanently cemented into place.
Dental crowns can last for many years, or even a lifetime, if they are well cared for. Despite this, they can become loose or even fall out. To help your dental crown last for a long time, practice good oral hygiene. Brush your teeth twice every day and floss once daily. Also, come to our office at least twice a year for your routine cleanings and exams.
