Dental Crowns in Corona and Norco
Crown and bridge work are among the most common dental procedures. Crowns are fabricated from many different types of materials. A crown or cap is placed over the tooth where the tooth is too structurally compromised for a filling or other type of bonding such as partial inlay or onlay.
For the procedure, the patient's mouth is numbed and the tooth is reduced enough to be covered. An impression and color match is then taken and sent to the lab for fabrication while Dr. Sam provides a temporary crown or cap. On your next visit, the finished crown will be fitted and once you and Dr. Sam are satisfied with the look and feel of the crown, cemented over your original tooth.
Crowns are made of porcelain, ceramic or gold. We avoid other metals in our Crowns due to their corrosive nature and the frequency of allergies.
The cost of crowns and bridges is affected by a variety of factors like their type, materials used, the complexity and scope of work being done. In most cases, up to half of the cost of crowns and bridges can be covered by dental insurance. You can review your individual insurance policy or ask Dr. Sam's Corona or Norco office to check with you insurance company for you.
Give us a call if you have any questions or to schedule your one-on-one consultation with Dr. Sam. We look forward to meeting you at either of our convenient offices in Corona or Norco.
