At Cassell Dentistry, our primary goal is to provide dentistry that is undetectable. We replace existing crowns and fillings with restorations that appear and function like your natural teeth. Dr. Cassell is a San Diego crowns dentist who has provided this essential restorative treatment for years.
When damage occurs, the effects on a patient’s dental health is severe. Some damage can be extreme and even beyond repair. Porcelain or porcelain “pasted on gold” crowns can create a “new” smile. This is an extremely reliable technique for repairing the most serious problems. Permanent tooth replacement means restoring a complete smile with a functional bite.
A crown requires at least two visits to the dental office. Initially, decay is removed while the tooth is shaped to fit a temporary crown created from plastic or metal.
The temporary crown will be removed on the subsequent visit for the adjustment and fit of the final crown. The crown will be cemented into place and be able to enjoy a beautiful new looking tooth.
Dental crowns benefits:
- Replace missing teeth
- Support misshapen or damaged teeth
- Completely natural appearance
- Fixes functional chewing problems
Crown and bridgework is a reliable solution for major dental problems caused by accidents, diseases, or wear and tear. They correct major problems and use high-grade materials such as porcelain or porcelain bonded to gold. They are strong enough to prevent the most serious of dental concerns.
Most patients may have filled back teeth where tooth pain occurs. This is due to hairline cracks in the chewing part of the tooth. When covered by crowns, the pain is minimized and dental function is restored. Older fillings on front teeth can cause further weakening and lower quality appearance due to stains or chips.
