About Dental Crowns
Our family-owned, Long Beach dental practice offers a wide variety of dental crowns to correct or hide cosmetic issues such as cracked or badly worn teeth. A dental crown or cap provides strength and structure to a tooth that has been severely damaged. Typically, a crown is placed when the top of the tooth is too damaged for a regular filling but still has healthy roots. Crowns can be made from porcelain, porcelain-over-metal, ceramic, or metal (gold, nickel, steel). During your initial exam, our dentists will thoroughly examine your condition and review all your crown options to determine which one is the best fit for you. Call our Emigh Dental Care office any time during our business hours to schedule an appointment.
"My family and I have been going to Emigh Dental Care for years. EVERYONE is very courteous, helpful, and professional. All their equipment is state of the art. I have had terrific Dr. Bob and Dr. Pat as my dentists. My son schedules his appointments with Dr. Todd -- who he thinks is great! Yesterday I was introduced to Dr. Le. She is a wonderful addition to the Team!! I can't say enough about my super hygienist, Andrea! Emigh Dental Care is the whole package!!!!"- A.D. / Yelp / Apr 25, 2018
"Best dentists we have ever had. Our whole family goes there. My 7 year old daughter was petrified of the dentist after a bad experience with another dentist. We switched to the Dr. Emighs and now she is 9 years old and looks forward to going. Tammy is her favorite, but Jade and everyone is fantastic!!"- T.M. / Yelp / Apr 24, 2018

"Broke a veneer recently & made an appt. @ Emigh Dental based on all the positive reviews - the reviews don't lie - this office is great & Dr. Todd is just the best! Ended up having him replace all 6 of my prior veneers + do 2 more. The difference between my 'old' (if 7 years is old) & new veneers is like night & day! Huge relief to have found such a talented dentist - HIGHLY recommended!"- J.L. / Yelp / Apr 21, 2018
"Been coming here for 40 years. Excellent care, Staff are always welcoming with smiles. It's not just a dental office , it's like visiting family . Not only has my family had the pleasure of being cared for my Dr. Robert Emigh, now we have the pleasure of being cared for by his two sons Dr. Pat and Dr. Todd to carry on the family tradition. What a wonderful blessing they all are, to all of us to take such good care of us. You can always get an emergency appointment and get in immediately to be cared for. Thank you for continuous Service."- D.P. / Yelp / Apr 19, 2018
What to Expect
A dental crown usually takes two appointments to complete. During the first appointment, our dentists will prepare the tooth for the crown, take impressions of the tooth for the permanent crown, and place a temporary crown over the tooth to protect it. The impressions are sent to a dental laboratory where a customized crown will be created for the patient. Once the crowns arrive back at our office, patients can schedule an appointment to have their permanent crown(s) fitted and set by our dentists.
Patients do not usually have any pain after a crown is placed, but some patients may experience discomfort or tooth sensitivity. Depending on the material, crowns can last from 7 – 40 years. Patients can extend the life of their crown by practicing good oral hygiene and visiting our office for regular exams and cleanings. If oral health is neglected, the tooth under the crown may develop a cavity or infection that will require more extensive treatment, like a root canal.
