Quality Dental Crowns in Pacific Beach, San Diego 

Whether you've cracked your tooth after biting into something or your tooth has been severely affected by decay, it can leave you questioning what treatment options are available to you. Dental crowns may be perfect for you if you're looking for a straightforward and long-lasting restorative option. These prosthetic restorations are placed over the visible portion of your tooth to help it look and feel natural.

At Singing Hills Dentistry San Diego, we're privileged to offer dental crowns to San Diego and its surrounding communities. In addition to our dental crown offerings, we also provide skilled crown lengthening to help you achieve your cosmetic goals. We're excited to meet you and help you take the first step toward improving and protecting your oral health. If you're in pain, our team also tries to accommodate same-day appointments whenever possible. Contact us today to schedule your next visit!


Our Efficient Crown Process

When you first visit our practice, our dentist will examine the affected tooth extensively using technology like x-rays. We'll look at your tooth and ensure it's healthy enough to undergo treatment safely. If we determine that your tooth requires pretreatment like root canal therapy, we'll explain your options. Our team will then outline the dental crown process and answer any questions you may have.

We'll begin the process by anesthetizing the area and reshaping your tooth. Once we've reshaped your tooth, we'll use state-of-the-art oral scanning technology to create an impression of your tooth. We'll then send the impressions to a local lab, where they typically take 1-2 weeks to create your restoration. Finally, we'll call you to our office for a fitting once your restoration is ready for placement. Our dentist will make any necessary adjustments so that it fits comfortably and securely.

3 Benefits of Dental Crowns

Each year, countless patients choose dental crowns for their simplicity and effectiveness. Our dental team is here for you if you're undecided on whether a crown is the right treatment option for you. During your initial appointment, we'll sit down with you to break down some of the benefits you can expect to experience with a dental crown, which include:

  1. Simplicity: Although getting a crown may seem extensive, it's popular for its minimally invasive nature. You won't require comprehensive oral surgery to receive your dental crown, and it usually only takes a couple appointments to complete the entire process.
  2. Long-Lasting: Our San Diego dental crowns are durable and designed to handle years of wear and tear. If you properly care for your crown at home and regularly visit our office, it's common for a crown to last over a decade before it needs to be replaced.
  3. Relieving Discomfort: Dental decay and trauma can cause increased tooth sensitivity, especially during temperature changes. A crown covers your tooth and provides a barrier to temperature changes while reducing sensitivity.

Providing Skilled Crown Lengthening

At Singing Hills Dentistry San Diego, we're privileged to offer crown lengthening in addition to dental crowns. Through crown lengthening, we can adjust the shape of your gums with state-of-the-art laser technology to show more of your teeth and create an overall more appealing appearance. As an outpatient procedure, crown lengthening can be completed in as little as one office visit and have you going home the same day.

Dental Crowns FAQs

It's normal to have questions about our San Diego dental crowns. That's why our staff is here to answer them and walk you step-by-step through what you can expect during the process. Some frequently asked questions about crowns include:

Is it painful to have a crown put on your tooth?

Although you may feel some initial discomfort when we numb the area, you should expect to feel minimal discomfort when receiving your crown. Our team does everything we can to keep you comfortable through the procedure.

With proper at-home oral care and regular dental appointments, your dental crown will give you years of functionality. It's important to note that your diet plays a part in how long your crown lasts, as harder foods can potentially damage it.

We recommend treating your crown as you would your natural teeth. Brushing your teeth twice daily and flossing once daily can help prevent dental complications and keep your crown performing its best.
