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.
Dental crowns are extremely versatile restorations. Not only do they fix damaged teeth, but they also replace missing teeth when used with dental bridges. Sierra Dental Care in Modesto, CA has extensive experience restoring our patients’ smiles using dental crowns and bridges. Our dentists can use these restorations to give you:
- A new smile that will increase your confidence.
- The ability to enjoy foods you’ve been missing out on.
- Better oral health and potentially better overall health.
- Improved, better-looking appearance.

Learn More About Crowns & Bridges
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 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.
When you have one or more missing teeth, a dental bridge can fill that embarrassing gap. To replace one missing tooth, your bridge will be made up of two dental crowns with a replacement tooth bonded between them. The crowns are secured to your healthy teeth on each side of the gap, refilling your smile. If you have several missing teeth in a row, we can use more crowns to create your bridge.
Choose Implants as Another Versatile Tooth Replacement Option
Titanium dental implants function as replacement tooth roots to which we can attach a single crown or a bridge. They are sturdy and long-lasting – research has shown that 95 percent of implants will last longer than 20 years!
In addition, implants will help prevent your jawbone from deteriorating. Because they are inserted into your jaw, they stimulate new bone growth like your natural teeth do.
