Dental Crowns in Foster City, CA
A dental crown is a restoration that is placed directly over a tooth to reinforce and restore a damaged or decayed tooth. If you need a new or replacement crown, call us at (650)-572-8518 for a consultation.
Crowns are one of the most common procedures to repair teeth that are worn down, cracked, or completely broken above the gum. Crowns are an important component in a dental bridge as well, but are also used to replace damaged teeth or for cosmetic purposes. We are proud to use a fantastic skilled local dental lab for the fabrication of our crowns that are customized to fit the contours of your natural teeth. Our lab takes the same level of pride in making a beautiful, long last tooth for you that we do.
Crowns are made from a variety of materials. Dr. Qian will help you determine which material is the best for you, depending on your cosmetic expectations and budget:
All-ceramic or all-porcelain: A better natural color match for the original tooth.
Gold: The only drawback of these crowns is the metallic color. Although probably the strongest, a gold crown would be better used in the back of the mouth for cosmetic purposes.
Porcelain fused to metal: Used when blocking out a dark tooth or as part of a dental bridge and high strength is needed. These have been around for decades and still are excellent.
