What Dental Crowns Do

Dental crowns are more than just cosmetic; they can go a long way towards ensuring your mouth and teeth stay healthy, without sacrificing your natural comfort.

Teeth that have a chip or cavity can’t always be treated or remedied with a traditional filling. Sometimes your cavities become too large for a filling, or the tooth has been weakened from too much grinding or repeated filling procedures.

Dental crowns are a cap that can be put over your tooth, typically made out of porcelain, metal, resin, or ceramic. They can restore your tooth to normal shape, size, and function.

To get dental crowns put in, your dentist will clear away the outer portion of the tooth so the crown will fit, removing any decay in the process. Your dentist will take impressions of your tooth and surrounding teeth to get the permanent crown as close as possible to its natural shape. Once Dr. Ali Shmara has prepared your dental crown, he will place it in your mouth and adjust it to fit your bite.

Crowns are an increasingly common procedure, especially following a root canal. By removing worn down or decaying teeth and replacing them with a crown, Smile Advantage can free you from pain. With new technology, a crown can be nearly identical to your natural teeth, made to look and feel comfortable in your mouth.

Getting a Crown During COVID-19

Our patient’s safety is paramount to us. That’s why during the ongoing pandemic, we have adopted guidelines to help keep all patients and our staff safe and healthy while in our office.

Here are a few of the changes you may see at your next dental crown appointment

  • All patients have to answer screening questions before and at the time of their appointment. If you do not feel well, let one of our staff members know, and we’ll be happy to reschedule you.
  • We also ask that patients wear a mask before and aftercare while in the Smile Advantage office.
  • Our office will be staggering appointments to ensure that proper COVID-19 social distancing and sanitization standards can be met.
  • Smile Advantage now has two air filtration systems to help keep the air circulating in the office clean. 

If you have any questions or concerns about our new protocols, we are more than happy to address them. To clarify our procedures or set up an appointment for you or a loved one, call our office at 951-352-2227 or schedule a visit using our online portal.
