Full Coverage Tooth Protection with Dental Crowns
Dental crowns protect your tooth when it can’t withstand everyday biting or grinding. This is usually due to conditions like:
- Large cavities
- Large, failing restorations
- Root canal therapy
- Fractured or cracked enamel
Covering the tooth makes it possible to continue functioning as normal. Dr. Trinh and Dr. Suzanna use porcelain crowns as they are both extremely durable as well as aesthetic.
Porcelain and Aesthetic Options
Your dental crown treatment typically takes two visits to our Bay Area cosmetic dental office. First we will prep the tooth, and then take an impression. About two weeks later your permanent crown will be ready to bond into place. Out of town guests can have an expedited turn-around time – as fast as 5 days!
Drs. Trinh Lee and Suzanna Lee carefully design your permanent crown to look and feel like a natural tooth. Crowns can also be placed over dental implants to replace missing teeth.
