Dr. Robert A. McCulla offers dental crowns at Turlock Dental Care, that not only improve the appearance of your tooth but also restore its shape, size, and strength.
A dental crown in Turlock, California, is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over your tooth to restore its health. It also has the ability to:
- Protect a fragile tooth
- Restore a broken tooth
- Protect a tooth that is worn down
- Support a tooth that has a large filling
- Disguise a severely discolored tooth
- Cover a dental implant
- Hold a dental bridge in place
- Make a cosmetic alteration
In most dental offices, placing a dental crown generally takes two visits. Thanks to our E4D machine, we are able to place a crown within one day! You will first come into our office and will meet with your dentist. Your dentist will examine your entire oral cavity and decide if this is the best product for you. If it is, he will numb your tooth and surrounding area with a local anesthetic. Your dentist will then prepare the tooth by shaving its surfaces to allow room for the crown. Next, he will take the information he needs into our own dental lab to create your dental crown. When it is ready, your dentist will make any needed adjustments to the crown and will permanently cement it into place.
