Dentist in Brentwood describes dental crowns
At Brentwood Family Dental, patients in and around the community are welcome to learn about general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry procedures available in our practice. Dr. Jamil Alkhoury and his team of professionals are here to help children and adults with their dental care. From keeping the smile beautiful to preventing problems such as dental caries and periodontal disease, our staff is here to help. We also know patients may have questions about treatments we recommend for them, including dental crowns.
Dental crowns, sometimes called "caps" or porcelain crowns, are used to add an extra layer of protection for weak or broken teeth. They may also be fused to false teeth to create restorations called bridges, or one may be placed over a dental implant to act as a false tooth. This versatile restoration is readily available at our practice.
Dental crowns are incredibly strong, durable, and natural-looking. We make our dental crowns with high-quality porcelain, which is matched exactly to the color of the natural teeth. This ensures beautiful integration that is difficult for others to discern. Patients do not want restorations that are noticeable, therefore we ensure all of our repairs are done keeping aesthetics in mind.
The process of receiving dental crowns does require several days. It starts with a consultation appointment during which Dr. Jamil Alkhoury will determine if the patient is an appropriate candidate for the placement of a dental crown. Once approved, the patient undergoes preparation. This includes the removal of a thin portion of enamel around the tooth. Impressions are made and sent with specific instructions from the dentist to the dental laboratory where a ceramist fabricates the new restoration. Once the crown is sent to the dental practice, the patient returns for the final bonding of the crown.
Our practice is located in the Brentwood, CA area and welcomes new patients of all ages. We encourage you to contact us at 925-344-5296 to discuss restorative solutions for you and your family. Dr. Jamil Alkhoury and his team are readily available to assist families in achieving dental health and wellness.
