At West Portal Family Dentistry, men and women can work with dentists to achieve beautiful, healthy smiles. When patients need restorative solutions, they can turn to Drs. Terri Nguyen and Laura Huynh. They work closely with patients to determine the best treatment options for San Francisco, CA area patients. One method of repair often sought by patients is dental crowns.
Drs. Terri Nguyen and Laura Huynh find that there are many patients who can benefit from the placement of dental crowns. Crowns are “caps” made of porcelain, which are bonded over the natural tooth to provide protection of the underlying tooth structure. Crowns are placed in many situations. They may be used to:
Crowns are placed after a consultation appointment during which the dentists will determine the restoration is appropriate. When a dentist and patient are in agreement with moving forward with the placement of a dental crown, preparations begin. Tooth enamel is removed from around the inner canals of the tooth before impressions are made and sent to a dental laboratory. The lab fabricates the restoration from porcelain and sends it to the dentist so patients can have their restoration bonded in place.
Drs. Terri Nguyen and Laura Huynh are here to help patients in caring for and enhancing their smiles. Their office is conveniently located at 26 West Portal Avenue, Suite #4 and can be reached by phone at (415) 604-9292.
