Crowns are appliances made of durable materials, such as metal alloys, and coated with porcelain or ceramic for an attractive appearance. Many people opt for dental crowns for treating damaged teeth with the help of our specialist for dental crowns in Northridge. The installation of a crown is a relatively simple procedure, and can be performed with local anesthetic.
For many, dental crowns have been a lifesaver, and the process for getting a crown is relatively easy. On your first visit, our Northridge dental crowns specialist will examine your mouth, check the stability of the damaged tooth and surrounding teeth, and make an assessment of the suitability of a crown for your circumstances. Other oral treatment may be necessary prior to receiving your crown, such as cleanings or repairs to surrounding teeth.
A single dental visit is enough to examine your mouth and determine if crowns are the right solution. If so, our specialist for dental crowns in Northridge will make a cast of your mouth. Pictures will be also taken of your existing teeth. The porcelain crown will be created in a laboratory, and installed on a second visit. The crown is affixed with a form of cement, making it permanent and durable. Periodic checkups will be necessary, but crowns tend to last for a long time before needing any further work.
