A Simple, Natural Way to Restore Damaged or Broken Teeth

At Sunshine Dental Group, we want to help you maintain a healthy, happy smile for life. This means that should one of your teeth become severely damaged due to trauma, decay or other circumstances, our dentists and team have the treatments you need to restore your oral health. One of the treatments that Dr. Jorge de la Osa and our associate dentists may recommend is a dental crown.

Dental crowns can also be used as a part of other dental procedures, such as dental implants, dental bridges, and root canal therapy. Crowns can be made of a variety of materials, but at our practice, we offer Captek™ and zirconia dental crowns in El Monte, California.

Captek™ crowns use a unique blend of gold and metal composite, creating a long-lasting solution that looks like your natural teeth. Zirconia dental crowns are made of zirconia, which is a naturally strong, tooth-colored and metal-free material. Both types of dental crowns are custom-made to resemble the exact shape and size of your natural tooth to give you a more natural-like result.

The process of placing a dental crown involves two visits to our practice. To start off, one of our dentists will remove the damaged areas of your tooth before taking an impression, which will be sent to an off-site dental lab as a template to create your crown. Once your crown is ready, you will return to our office to have it cemented into place.

If you have a severely damaged tooth, or if you wish to improve the appearance of one of your teeth, we invite you to contact our office and learn whether a dental crown is right for you.
