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. 

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. 

Treatment Aftercare

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.
