Crowns Q&A

What are dental crowns?

Dental crowns are a type of restoration that Dr. Cabanzon bonds to the top of a tooth -- much like a cap. They cover the entire visible portion of the tooth enamel that sits above your gumline and match the color and shape of your surrounding teeth to give you a more uniform smile. 

Crowns are incredibly sturdy and function just like your natural teeth.

What is a CEREC crown?

CEREC technology allows Dr. Cabanzon to prepare and place same-day ceramic crowns at THE DENTAL BOUTIQUE. Instead of having to wait for days or weeks for an outsourced laboratory to custom-make your crown, he can craft one that is just right for your smile in-office, eliminating the need for multiple dental visits, temporary crowns, and messy dental impressions. 

The CEREC system scans the defective tooth using computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM technology). 

A CEREC single visit crown offers a high-quality, durable restoration that provides a beautiful smile with minimal hassle. You get a beautifully reformed tooth that’s ready to function like your natural teeth in just one visit.

When would I need a dental crown?

Dr. Cabanzon may recommend a dental crown in many cases. You might benefit from a dental crown to:

  • Cover a tooth with a large filling
  • Restore a broken tooth
  • Protect a weak tooth
  • Support a damaged or decaying tooth
  • Cover a dental implant
  • Hold a bridge in place
  • Restore the look of misshapen or discolored teeth

Dr. Cabanzon also recommends a dental crown following a root canal as the tooth is weak and vulnerable. The crown offers valuable protection.

How should I care for dental crowns?

Dental crowns look and function like your natural teeth and benefit from the same oral hygiene practices. Take care of your crown (and all of your teeth) by brushing two times daily, flossing once per day, and routinely getting a professional teeth cleaning. Also, avoid chewing hard objects like ice cubes. With good care, your crown can last many years.
