what to expect
Crowns, also known as caps, provide a solution to restore damaged teeth and prevent further problems. We offer dental crowns made with durable materials that can include precious metal, porcelain pressed to metal, and all-porcelain crowns to restore your teeth. All-porcelain crowns are the best option to blend with your natural tooth color to provide an attractive and lasting solution. We can customize the shade of the materials we use to match your natural teeth perfectly and protect them beautifully. Dental crowns made with metal may also be the right choice for teeth that need more support and strength from a crown, such as in cases where a tooth is badly broken or damaged.
There are several ways we use crowns, such as improving the color and shape of teeth, rebuilding broken or decayed teeth, strengthening the teeth in the face of chips and cracks, or after a root canal. Once the crown is placed, you care for it as you would the rest of your natural teeth.
Crowns may be part of a larger plan to restore your smile to its best possible state, and might be done with bonding, bridgework and other cosmetic and restoration dental care. Our dentists can answer any questions you have about which treatment is right for you. We serve patients all over northern California from offices in Redding and Red Bluff — get in touch to make an appointment and find out more.
