A type of dental restoration, dental crowns are covers that completely encase damaged teeth up to the gumline. Dental crowns are used to restore the shape, size, and function of a severely damaged tooth, especially when little original tooth structure remains. At Oceanview Dental, we only use porcelain crowns for a beautiful, natural aesthetic. Our expert cosmetic dentist, Dr. James Hargas, is able to match the shade of porcelain to match exactly with your natural smile. Thanks to our CEREC® one-visit restoration technology, it only takes one visit to our dental office to place a porcelain crown.
Before preparing the tooth to receive the porcelain crown, CEREC takes multiple images and perfectly creates a digital blueprint of the dental crown you will need. Dr. Hargas will choose a ceramic block that matches your tooth color and approve CEREC to produce your crown. Within minutes, your porcelain crown is created. To place the porcelain crown, our dental team will ensure the crown fits properly with your natural bite and smile before permanently cementing it into place.
