Hopefully, your adult teeth will last you a lifetime. Even for those who brush and floss regularly, however, teeth can take on all kinds of wear. They can get cavities, become chipped, or can simply get worn down due to everyday use. For anyone whose teeth have become damaged or weakened, In Motion Dentists offers a number of restorative options, such as dental crowns. We invite you to learn more about our dental services in the La Verne, CA community.
What are Dental Crowns?
Dental crowns are aesthetically pleasing caps that cover and protect natural teeth that are damaged. Crowns restore your teeth to their normal size, shape, strength, and physical appearance. Preparing teeth for crowns is a restorative procedure that requires 1-2 visits depending on if we can do a same-day crown or if we need to have our lab make your crown. During your first visit, the tooth will be prepared for the crown and either a scan or an impression will be taken. If a scan is taken, then we often can make your crown at the same time and you can walk out that same day with a new custom crown. If an impression is taken, then that will be sent to the dental lab where the crown will be fabricated. The second appointment will be dedicated to seating and cementing the crown. Your provider will ensure you are happy with the look and feel of the crown during this session.
Our dentists specialize in cementing dental crowns, with the intention of restoring your teeth both to their normal functionality and to their normal aesthetics.
