At Hillock Family Dental, one of the most common dental procedures we perform is placing custom dental crowns on damaged teeth. To help our patients have healthy teeth, it may be necessary to replace part of the natural tooth structure with a crown.
Typically, when getting a crown, a patient will have a temporary crown for a week or two while waiting for the custom crown to be created at the lab. We have simplified the process and make it possible to have same-day dental crowns in Modesto.
Dentistry has come a long way, and we stay ahead of the curve. We want our patients, from the youngest to the most elderly, to have the advantages of the latest developments in modern dentistry.
The CEREC system allows you to get a damaged tooth restored with a crown in a single appointment – no waiting!
Crowns: Restoring Your Teeth
A crown can help you restore a damaged tooth. Some of the reasons people need to crown a tooth include:
- Broken tooth
- Tooth with excessive decay
- Oddly-shaped tooth
- Cracked tooth
- Severely discolored tooth
- Heavily-filled tooth with weakened structure
At Hillock Family Dental: You are Part of the Family.
We treat our patients like members of our own family – they mean that much to us. When you entrust the dental and oral health of your teeth and gums to us, we believe you deserve the best dental care available.
We work closely with you to explain the process of placing a crown, so you understand why a crown is needed, what to expect, and reassure you if you have concerns about pain or discomfort. A crown may be needed to avoid losing a tooth – which leads to other problems.
We Create a Perfect Match
If you need a crown, you want it to look perfect, and be indistinguishable from your other teeth. We are very careful at every step of the process and try to preserve as much of your natural tooth as possible, so the tooth remains strong and healthy for decades.
Many people choose to get dental crowns in Modesto for cosmetic reasons – and we have the artistic approach that can give you an evenly-spaced, attractive smile. Whether crowns or veneers, we will advise you about the most effective, long-lasting solution for damaged teeth.
Types of Crowns
Various types of crowns are available at our dental office in Modesto. These include:
- Resin crowns: These crowns are created in-office for a one-day crown placement.
- Ceramic crowns: These are customized crowns manufactured in a lab from an impression of your teeth for a perfect fit and color.
- Metal crowns: These crowns are a workhorse and may be appropriate for certain patients. They are known for their long life but are less attractive than the other options.
