There are many times when a dentist in the San Francisco, CA area may talk to patients about considering dental crowns for the teeth. Drs. Terri Nguyen and Laura Huynh of West Portal Family Dentistry encourage patients to ask questions about procedures and treatments that can enhance the smile. This includes crowns.
A crown for the teeth is a ceramic restoration custom fabricated for patients who need coverage of their natural tooth structure. It may also be used over a dental implant to restore the smile after tooth loss. This porcelain repair is made to look like the existing teeth to appear completely natural. Drs. Terri Nguyen and Laura Huynh work closely with patients to ensure they have beautiful smiles they can be proud of, even if cosmetic restorations are required.
Most patients are appropriate candidates for the placement of a dental crown. Even so, it is essential that individuals complete a thorough evaluation. The dentist will perform a physical evaluation of the smile and take x-rays to check the health of the smile, looking for signs of cavities, periodontal disease, or infection of the dental pulp. Patients can take this time to ask their dentist any questions they may have about this or any other restorative dentistry treatment.
