Dental Crowns in Richmond, CA

  1. They look natural: We create our restorations from porcelain. The material reflects light in a similar manner as tooth enamel, giving the restoration a lifelike appearance. In addition, porcelain is stain-resistant and very strong. We often suggest these for teeth near the front of the mouth that require repair.
  2. Crowns are strong: The material we use to construct a crown can withstand powerful bite forces and the pressures that natural teeth are expected to endure. You will be able to eat as you did before without damaging the repaired tooth.
  3. They can be completed in a single day: With E4D technology, we can design, fabricate, and place a restoration in just one visit. We will first prepare the tooth and then take a series of pictures with an intraoral camera. From there, a 3D model of the tooth will be made. Using the model, the E4D milling machine will create the new cap from a solid block of porcelain. After checking the fit, we can place the restoration.
  4. We can use them to replace missing teeth: We can often use a restoration to either anchor a dental bridge into place or to actually top a dental implant. The result is a natural looking replacement option that allows you to eat or speak with comfort and ease.
  5. Anyone can receive a crown: Children and adults can receive a restoration to address damage, decay, tooth loss, or other oral health issues.
