In most instances, the fabrication and placement of a dental crown is a necessity to restore and protect a natural tooth. Dental crowns, sometimes referred to as “dental caps,” play an important role in restorative dentistry, allowing patients to maintain their natural teeth even when significant damage has occurred. Dr. Darren Gonzalez of Santa Rosa, California is a dentist in the community who understands how vital crowns can be, and is pleased to offer a faster way to create and place dental crowns for patients. With an investment in today’s technology, he proudly offers same-day dental crowns.
What are dental crowns use for?
There are a variety of situations that can arise in which a patient might need a dental crown. Below are just a few cases where a crown might be fabricated and placed for an individual:
- A tooth has aesthetic imperfections that affect the appearance
- A tooth is severely damaged from trauma or decay
- A tooth needs a large filling that impacts the tooth structure and strength significantly
- A tooth has been replaced with a dental implant
- A tooth is being covered by the placement of a dental bridge
- A tooth has recently undergone root canal therapy and may be weakened and more susceptible to damage
How can Dr. Darren Gonzalez provide same-day dental crowns?
Dr. Darren Gonzalez has invested back into his practice to ensure his patients have access to the latest technologies and most modern techniques of improving the natural smile. His facility uses the CEREC system, which takes digital images of the tooth requiring restoration and converts it to CAD/CAM software. The crown is milled from a block of porcelain while patients wait in the dental chair, eliminating the need to take messy impressions that are sent to a laboratory sometimes states away to complete the process. Patients leave the office with their new crown, and do not need a temporary filling or a second visit to complete the process.
