Dental Crowns in Newport Beach

A dental crown is a solution to strengthening or repairing a damaged tooth. A dentist custom fits a crown to entirely cover or "cap" an existing tooth.  Dental crowns are made of ceramic or porcelain, improving the stability, appearance, shape and/or alignment of the tooth.

Newport Beach Dental Crowns

Why get a dental crown?

The following issues can be addressed with a dental crown:

  • Broken or cracked tooth
  • Unsightly appearance of teeth
  • Tooth with large filling
  • Weak tooth from root canal 
  • Space between teeth
  • Dental bridge procedure

Dental Crown Procedure

If the dentist finds that a crown is the right solution to your dental problem, it usually takes two visits for the dentist to put in a dental crown.

The first dental crown appointment involves preparing and shaping the tooth, taking an impression, and placing a temporary crown. A dental lab will use the impression to build a custom crown for the patient.

On the second visit, the dentist will apply the finished crown to the tooth and cement it in place. Another evaluation will be performed to check the fit and appearance of the new dental crown.
At Image Dental we provide all porcelain crowns, which means that there are never any grey lines or exposed metal, usually apparent from traditional crowns.
