Restoring Fremont Smiles with Dental Crowns

Are you in the market for a smile that’s your crowning glory? You may need a crown to restore a damaged or decayed tooth to its normal shape and size. Thankfully, Fremont dentist, Dr. James Block and his team can provide you with the support and high-quality dental restoration options you need to enjoy oral health that looks just as great as it feels.

What are dental crowns?

Dental crowns are essentially covers that can support a tooth when a regular filling just isn’t enough. They can be used in several versatile ways, including to attach a dental bridge, to protect a weak tooth from breaking, or to restore a lost tooth replaced by an implant. A crown is also an ideal method for hiding teeth that are discolored or badly shaped. As Dr. Block's primary concern is always to keep your teeth healthy and your smile bright, you should take his recommendation that you need a dental crown very seriously.

The dental crown process requires two visits to our Fremont, CA dental office. During the first one, Dr. Block and his team will prepare your damaged tooth for the restoration, take an impression, and attach a temporary. Our trusted lab will then use the impression to create a beautiful, customized crown that follows Dr. Block's detailed instructions. Once we receive your new crown, we will call you in for a follow-up visit so that we can securely place it and make any necessary adjustments.

Porcelain Crowns, Inlays, and Onlays Provide a Beautifully Seamless Look

Dr. Block understands very well that while oral health is a priority, the aesthetic value of your smile is also very important. That's why he always prefers to place aesthetic crowns, inlays, and onlays made from porcelain and other tooth-colored materials in order to preserve your beautiful smile. However, in areas of intense pressure, porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM) or fully metal restorations may be necessary.

Don't let a damaged tooth affect your quality of life. Instead, contact our Fremont dental office as soon as possible to schedule your first appointment with Dr. Block. Our dental team is dedicated to providing dental patients of all ages with the support, skill, and comprehensive care they need to enjoy truly optimal oral health.
