Do you need to change the size, shape, and strength of your tooth? Well, our team at the dental practice of Dr. Stephen Henry DDS has a way of doing that for you!
When you receive a dental crown in Foster City, California, you will have a tooth-shaped cap placed over a tooth to improve its appearance and restore its health. This is a beneficial product for those who want to protect a weak tooth, restore a broken tooth, and support a tooth with a large filling. It is also beneficial for those who want to make a cosmetic modification, hold a dental bridge in place, and cover a dental implant. Children can also utilize this product. It is the most valuable to children who need to save a tooth that is extremely damaged by decay and to protect their teeth from poor dental hygiene habits.
The crowns we provide are made of porcelain, which give you a natural-looking, aesthetically pleasing end result. The process of installing a crown generally involves two trips to our practice. The first visit will include a dental examination, and our dentist will prepare the tooth that is receiving the crown. Our dentist will prepare the tooth by shaving a portion of the surface down to allow room for the crown. Once the tooth is the correct shape, he will make impressions of your tooth and will send them to a lab, where your crowns will be custom-made for you. Your second trip will involve our dentist checking and adjusting the crown to fit into your smile and bite. Once it is the perfect fit, your crown will be permanently cemented into place.
