Hanford Family Dental Center, serving Lemoore CA and surrounding areas, is committed to helping you have the best smile possible. We focus on finding the solution that helps you achieve the healthy smile you deserve. This is why we use all porcelain crowns for tooth restoration needs. Porcelain crowns are the closest match to dental enamel, giving results that keep you self-confident in your smile.

There are times when a crown is the best option to save a tooth.
  • Sometimes, a tooth is cracked or beginning to break. A crown can help keep the tooth protected.
  • If a tooth is broken, a crown will restore it to a natural look and feel.
  • If a decayed area is too large for a filling, a crown will be used.
  • If a dental bridge is necessary, crowns will hold it in place.
  • A dental implant uses a crown to replace a missing tooth.
Dr. Nikunj Raiyani will consult with you to help determine if a crown is the best option for you and to educate you further on the process used. Dr. Raiyani is a strong believer that education is key for your ongoing dental health.

Understanding the process:

  • Before any work is done, the tooth is numbed.
  • The next step is shaping the tooth to make room for the crown. Then dental impression putty is used to make a mold of the tooth, so the crown will not affect your bite.
  • A temporary crown will be placed. A dental lab will build the permanent crown.
  • At the next visit, Dr. Raiyani checks that the fit and color of the crown are acceptable. If they are, the tooth will be numbed and the crown permanently placed.
