Crowns Q & A

What are dental crowns, and why might I need one?

Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps placed over damaged or weakened teeth to restore their shape, size, strength, and appearance.

At Manteca Dental Care, Dr. Tran and the team of hygienists might recommend a crown to protect a tooth that has been damaged by decay or trauma, to cover a dental implant, or to improve the appearance of discolored or misshapen teeth.

What materials are used to make dental crowns?

Manteca Dental Care offers a variety of crown materials to suit each patient’s unique needs and preferences.

These include metal, porcelain-fused-to-metal, all-resin, and all-ceramic crowns, each offering its own unique benefits. Dr. Tran and the team will help you decide the best material for your specific needs.

What is the process of getting a dental crown?

The process usually involves two visits to Manteca Dental Care. During the first visit, Dr. Tran prepares the tooth and takes impressions to ensure a custom fit for your crown. A temporary crown is placed until your permanent one is ready.

At the second visit, Dr. Tran will cement the permanent crown into place, making necessary adjustments to ensure a comfortable fit and a natural look.

After your second appointment, your crown will enable your tooth to look and function like it once did. Depending upon your unique needs and goals, you may also be treated with dental implants or veneers to full restore your smile.

How do I care for a dental crown?

Dental crowns don’t require any special care beyond regular oral hygiene practices. Dr. Tran will advise on the best practices to maintain your crown, which will generally include brushing and flossing daily and regular check-ups and cleanings at Manteca Dental Care.
