This procedure entails modification of the natural tooth. We have different materials that you can choose from. There is gold, there is silver, there is porcelain infused to metal, and more popularly now, is the all ceramic crowns. We use all these materials. Until we modify the tooth, we take impressions, and we send them to the laboratory. When the case comes back, we try on the crown, and if everything is all well, the shape, shape, the size, the fit, and the bite, then we're ready to cement it.
What Is a Dental Crown?
Dental crowns are small dental restorations that fit over and protect damaged teeth. They are great for correcting cracked or broken teeth, teeth that have been ravaged by tooth decay, and even a tooth that has had a root canal.
Sierra Dental Care in Modesto, CA is proud to offer Procera dental crowns to our patients. These are some of the highest-quality dental crowns available, and they will look and function just like your natural teeth.
What Is a Dental Bridge?
When you have one or more missing teeth, dental bridges will fill that embarrassing gap. If you are missing one tooth, your bridge from Sierra Dental Care in Modesto, CA will be made up of two dental crowns with a fake tooth bonded in between them. The crowns are placed over the healthy teeth on each side of the gap, refilling your smile. If you have a few missing teeth in a row, we can use more crowns to create your bridge.
If you need to replace several or all of your missing teeth, dentures may be a better choice. Ask our team about the best option for you.
