What Are Dental Crowns?
Individual teeth that have moderate damage or tooth decay can generally be treated with a crown restoration. Our patient-centered dental facility is pleased to provide dental crowns to Walnut Creek, CA individuals to protect and strengthen the visible portion of an individual tooth while restoring its function and appearance. Dental crowns are custom-crafted to mimic your existing teeth and are frequently used to address teeth that are fractured, have dental caries, are malformed, or have other forms of oral damage. We are happy to offer the services of our on-site lab. Our team works on the creation of your customized dental crowns, which may also be fused into an appliance to form a dental bridge or bonded to single implants to treat teeth that are missing. Schedule a consultation at Life Dental & Orthodontics to discover whether a custom-made dental crown can improve the appearance and health of your smile.
What Is the Dental Crown Process?
The crown procedure for Walnut Creek, CA men and women commonly takes place over the course of two visits. At the initial appointment, we will administer local anesthetic to your damaged tooth and may incorporate sedation dentistry to improve your comfort if you so choose. Once the damaged portion is taken care of, an impression of the prepared tooth will be taken and used at our on-site lab in fabricating your personalized restoration. A temporary crown will be placed over your tooth to maintain function and a lifelike, cosmetic appeal while your customized dental crown is being created. You will schedule a follow-up visit at Life Dental & Orthodontics a few weeks afterward so that you can have the provisional crown removed and the custom dental crown adhered to the tooth or implant post.
Dental Crowns Reviews
I have been visiting the practice of Dr. Brian Hockel for the past 10 years and I am completely satisfied with my visits and the services rendered. In particular, the quality of care provided by the staff is above reproach and in particular the Dental Hygienists (thanks Nicole!) who have consistently provided quality care. The attention to detail is obvious and the results evident. An added bonus is the on site, full service Dental lab and fabrication facility operated by Steve Hockel, who works closely with Brian to ensure quality crowns, bridges, etc.I highly recommend Team Hockel!
As another dental professional, I can only say wonderful things about Dr Hockel and his staff. I know what is excellent dental treatmen and what is not. Dr Hockel strives to for excellence and his staff is caring, honest and professional. I know when a dentist stays abreast of everything happening in dentistry. I knew when I first meet Dr Hockel that his patients were is great hands and if I performed work on his patients they would receive the best dental care possible after my treatment. I am a dentist that specializes in root canals. His expertise and care is incredible. Dr Hockel's staff treats their patients with care and respect. I feel part of his family. I grew up on a small farm in the midwest without fluoride and good dental care. Due to this I have had my share of dental problems. Yes, as dentist we can have dental issues. Dr Hockel has been able to help me with these issues and I am say I am proud of my smile. Dr Hockel's brother runs the dental lab and has made most of my crowns. His diligence towards perfection is wonderful. Thank you to Dr Hockel, his staff and his brother.
