An unattractive tooth can, unfortunately, take the beauty away from your smile. Because of this, your self-confidence and self-esteem can be hindered and you might even feel embarrassed about your smile. In a situation like this, it’s best to consider visiting Dr. Novan Nguyen and Dr. Sally Chu. Fortunately, we have a dental crown restoration that can enhance the appearance of your tooth in an easy and simple way.
To tell you a little more, we would like to explain the process of placing a dental crown in Stockton, California.
When starting your treatment, your dentist will numb your mouth and prepare the tooth that is receiving the dental crown. To prepare the tooth, they will shave the tooth’s outer shell to make room for the cap.
Once the tooth is shaped correctly, your dentist will make impressions of your tooth and the surrounding teeth in your dentition and will send those impressions to a professional dental lab. The lab technicians will use those impressions to create a dental crown that is perfect for you. While you wait, you will be given a temporary crown so you can still use that tooth if needed.
When your new crown is ready and sent back to your dentist, you will come back into Smile 32 to have it placed over the tooth. Your dentist will remove the temporary crown and will make sure the size, fit and appearance of the new crown is exactly as expected. If the new crown is perfect, they will secure it into place with dental-grade cement.
Would you like to see if a dental crown is the right restoration for you? If so, call 209-952-9290 today and schedule an appointment! The sooner you come into our office, the sooner you’ll have the beautiful as well as healthy smile you desire. Dr. Novan Nguyen and Dr. Sally Chu look forward to helping you with all of your smile care needs!
