Ceramic Dental Crowns
Ceramic is one of the most beautiful, natural-looking materials for dental crowns. Not only can
the ceramic be tinted to match the color of your teeth exactly, but it can also be made to mimic
the natural translucency of your teeth. This results in a restoration that blends flawlessly with
your smile for the most aesthetic results possible. Our Hawthorne dental crowns expert can
help you decide if ceramic crowns are right for you.
Our expert in ceramic crowns in Hawthorne may recommend a ceramic crown if you:
- Have a chipped or cracked tooth
- Have a tooth that has had a root canal treatment
- Are missing a tooth and are a candidate for a dental implant or a dental bridge
- Have a misshapen or severely discolored tooth
- Have a tooth that is badly decayed and cannot be restored through more conservative procedures
Ceramic Dental Crowns in Redondo Beach
The process may require two dental appointments. Our Hawthorne ceramic crowns expert
will begin by preparing the tooth to be crowned. This requires the removal of some of the
dental enamel, and the tooth will be shaped to support the crown comfortably. A temporary
crown will protect and restore the tooth until your final crown is ready. At the second
appointment, the permanent crown will be bonded into place. Taking care of your crown is not
much different from taking care of your own teeth. Brush after meals, and floss once a day,
paying particular attention to the area along the gum line. The crowns cannot decay, but the
teeth may still be vulnerable. It is important that you continue to seek routine care, professional
cleanings and preventative treatments when necessary.
Ceramic crowns offer a number of benefits to patients. They are considered the most aesthetic crown available. The ceramic is designed to strengthen the tooth and last for years. They are resistant to fracturing and can be used to bite, chew, and use just like your other teeth. Our expert in dental crowns in Hawthorne will explain each of your treatment options and make personalized recommendations.
