The goal of restorative dentistry is twofold. On one hand, its job is to protect your smile and help you eat and speak as you should. On the other hand, a restoration should also improve your appearance and boost your self-esteem. One of the most versatile ways our dentists can repair your smile is with a dental crown. You may be surprised at all of the things Dr. Homa H. Zadeh and associates can do with a crown in Ventura, California, and you can learn more when you call Brighton Specialty Dental Group at 805-644-5284 for your appointment.
Extensive damage to a tooth does not necessarily mean the loss of the tooth. A dental crown can be used to:
- Protect a tooth that has had a root canal
- Support a large filling
- Cover a dental implant
- Cover a severely compromised or damaged tooth
- Improve the shape or even the color of a tooth
- Hold a bridge in place.
In the past a dental crown would have required two office visits, one to remove the enamel from your tooth and take an impression and one to place the new crown. At Brighton Specialty Dental Group, we use CEREC technology to create your new porcelain crown at our office in one day, meaning that you will not have to wait to start enjoying your new smile.
