If you’ve been searching for topics such as “dental crowns near me,” there’s a good chance you or someone you care about has a damaged tooth badly in need of repair. Thankfully, here at Daniel Appel DDS Inc., Dr. Daniel Appel and his team can restore your tooth and make it as good as new using dental crowns.
Dental crowns offer a realistic restoration made from tooth-like materials that fit perfectly over your damaged tooth. Once it’s cemented, the dental crown will restore your tooth’s natural appearance and function like a regular tooth. Crowns are comfortable and made from durable, tooth-like dental materials such as:
The exact type of dental material used to repair your tooth depends on a few factors, such as your tooth’s location, personal preferences, and budget.
During your consultation with Dr. Appel, he will use safe, advanced diagnostics like digital x-rays to examine your problematic tooth. He may recommend a crown for those with severe tooth decay and weakened or incredibly fractured teeth. Depending on your situation, a crown may be placed following a root canal procedure to strengthen the tooth.
Should the doctor determine that crowns are the best course of treatment, your first visit will entail removing the damaged areas of your tooth. Then impressions will be taken and used by our lab partner to create your permanent crown. Usually, we place a temporary crown to protect the tooth until the permanent crown is completed.
Once completed, you will return to the office, where Dr. Appel will remove your temporary crown to place your new permanent crown. He will also ensure that your permanent crown fits properly and looks as it should before cementing it to your natural tooth. With all crown treatments, we use an anesthetic that’s well-tolerated by our patients.
With routine care at home and regular checkups, you can once again enjoy the pleasure of smiling, laughing, and chewing food with your newly crowned teeth for many years to come. Call (530) 783-7545 to set up your consultation with Dr. Appel. Our office is located at 2250 Myers St, Oroville, CA.
