Dental Crowns in Salinas, CA
What Is a Dental Crown?
- Styles and materials Crowns have traditionally been made of gold although steel and aluminum have also been used. While these are certainly strong materials, they don’t look or feel natural in the mouth. Luckily, there are now more modern and natural approaches to crowns so that it will continue to look and feel like your natural tooth.
- The procedure Getting your crown will require two visits to the office. First, you will go to have your tooth cleaned to remove any decayed parts and bacterias. Next, you will have that tooth molded to produce the shape of your crown. You will then be given a temporary crown to wear while your crown is being made, and you should come in the for the final appointment to have it placed inside. Once your crown is placed in, you will be able to use it as though it were any other tooth.
I was hesitant about going to see a dentist because it's been so long since I've seen one, but the staff at TLC was very welcoming and friendly and helped calm my anxiety. I also like that they see children and were patient with my 20-month-old baby.
