At Sierra Smiles, we take a conservative approach to dentistry and treat damaged teeth with the least amount of dental work possible. But, in some cases, a tooth needs a little extra TLC to restore its strength and appearance. When a simple filling isn’t enough, we use dental crowns in Pasadena to repair damage and save your tooth so you can continue using it for many years to come. If you think you could benefit from a dental crown, call us today so we can create the perfect treatment plan for you!
What Is a Dental Crown?
Sometimes called a “cap,” a dental crown can be made of various materials, including porcelain, ceramic, gold, and zirconia. Dental crowns fit snugly over existing teeth to cover the entire portion that you see above the gumline (called the crown of the tooth).
These restorations replace damaged tooth structure and bring back the strength, shape, and appearance of a tooth. After we’ve talked about your needs and cosmetic goals, we’ll recommend the best material for your crown. For tooth-colored restorations, we’ll make sure it matches your existing shade perfectly.
