Placing Dental Crowns
Woodland, CA

Image of a dental crown being placed at Beautiful Smiles in Woodland, CA. Tooth decay, accidents, overtime use, lifestyle choices, and other factors can take a toll on your teeth. This impacts the shape and size, as well as the functionality of the teeth. There are several dental procedures that can help fix these issues, including dental crowns. The crown acts as a cap for the tooth that needs to be replaced to enhance its strength, appearance, and shape. The Dental crown procedure is simple and seamless when it is done by our skilled and experienced professionals, Dr. James Yang and James Yang DDS at Beautiful Smiles. We create customized dental crowns based on the severity of the issue and overall dental health.

Types of Dental Crowns

There are various options available for dental crowns, such as:
•  Metal crowns
•  All ceramic crowns
•  Porcelain fused to metal crowns
•  All-resin crowns
•  Pressed ceramic crowns
•  Stainless steel crowns

Procedure for Placing Dental Crowns

Here are the steps involved in the dental crown procedure:
•  The dentist will begin by giving you an anesthetic to numb the tooth and the surrounding gum tissue.
•  A dental tool, typically a drill, will be used to remove any decayed part in the tooth before cleaning the structure.
•  A dental impression putty or a digital scanner will be used to measure the size and shape of the affected tooth to create the crown.
•  A temporary crown will be placed in this appointment while the lab creates the dental crown, which usually takes a few days. For a same-day crowns procedure, a CEREC system is used to quickly create the customized dental crown within minutes. This procedure will be done in a single dentist appointment.
•  For the standard procedure, the temporary crown will be replaced by the permanent dental crown in the second appointment. A special glue or cement is used to seal the crown.

Dental Crowns Healing Process

When getting a dental procedure, the major concern for most patients is the duration of the healing process. Of course, you would want to get back to your normal routine as quickly as possible. Fortunately, the dental crown procedure is simple and quick without a long healing process. The procedure requires administering an anesthetic that eliminates any pain or discomfort during the crown placement. However, you might experience some sensitivity and discomfort for a few days after the procedure, but this will quickly fade once your gums recover and the cement hardens.

Benefits of Ceramic Crowns

There is a range of different dental crowns available today that can fit the different requirements and conditions of the patient. However, ceramic crowns are usually the most preferred choice for many patients. Here are the many advantages of ceramic crowns:
•  Cosmetically appealing
•  Highly strong and durable
•  Enhances the functionality of your teeth
•  Anti-allergic properties
•  No presence of mercury
