Your smile has gotten you this far in life. So, when your teeth are damaged or decayed, give them the star treatment they deserve by visiting Montclair Dental Care in Oakland, California. Dr. Kenneth Childers uses natural-looking dental crowns to restore compromised teeth for a functional, healthy, and beautiful smile.
Today, patients aren’t interested in dental restorations that don’t look natural. And this doesn’t apply to cosmetic dentistry only — it’s also applicable to treatments that aim to improve oral health. Thanks to technological advancements, all treatments at our office won’t affect your smile’s appearance. In fact, our procedures leave your smile way better than we found it!
Chances are you have seen someone with a front crown shaded differently from their natural teeth. Porcelain dental crowns bear no resemblance with these conspicuous crowns. Porcelain crowns are sized and shaped to feel and look like natural teeth. Once in place, a porcelain cap is virtually indistinguishable from other teeth.
Transforming your smile with a porcelain crown requires at least two dental appointments. In the first appointment, Dr. Childers will prepare your tooth by removing the decayed portion and reshaping it to accommodate a crown. We carry out this tooth preparation procedure after numbing your gums with fast-acting anesthetics for optimal comfort.
We’ll then take the bite impressions of the prepped tooth and the adjacent dental structures to create a restoration that fits comfortably. Your crown will be fabricated in our partner dental lab. Since this fabrication process takes a few days, we’ll place a provisional crown to protect your prepped tooth.
Once your crown is ready, our dentist will fit it to the prepared tooth and make the necessary adjustments for a snugly fit. The final step is to bond the crown securely to the tooth using dental cement. Your dental crown provides a solid restoration that can support your smile for many years with proper care.
We use high-quality materials and unrivaled artistry skills to fabricate functional and life-looking restorations for a one-of-a-kind smile. Please call (510) 328-7792 to get the beautiful smile you deserve.
