DENTAL CROWNS OXNARD, CA

When you are in need of a dental crown, there is no dentist in Ventura County who is better equipped for your needs than prosthodontist Dr. Saj Jivraj and his expert staff. With over twenty-five years of experience, he has the skills to transform your dental imperfection into an ideal smile.

WHAT IS A DENTAL CROWN?

A dental crown is a cap that covers an imperfect tooth in order to regain its look and functionality of the real thing. A dental crown is shaped and colored like your teeth, so when properly installed, it looks seamlessly like a member of your natural arch.

A crown can be used in many different ways to restore your teeth, including:

  • Protect a weak tooth from decay or breaking
  • Restore a broken tooth
  • Support a tooth that has been thoroughly worn down
  • Fix a dental bridge in place
  • Cover unsightly teeth
  • Cover a dental implant

In addition to the above, there are several more cosmetic uses for dental crowns.

There are many different types of dental crowns. Choosing which is best for you is based on personal preference, the condition of the tooth to be crowned and other factors. Before a crown is molded, Dr. Jivraj will discuss which material is best for your mouth and concerns.

WHAT TYPES OF DENTAL CROWNS ARE AVAILABLE?

  • Metal Crowns- These provide the best strength and are made from gold or other types of dental alloys. Owing to their strength even when the thickness of the material is minimal and their metallic appearance, metal crowns are mostly used in the back of the mouth.
  • Ceramic Crowns- These provide a better natural color match and are most suited for the front teeth. Ceramic crowns also provide sufficient strength without compromising on appearance
  • Plastic (Polymer) Crowns- These are mostly used for provisional restorations (Made for short to medium duration of time)
  • Ceramo-Metal Crowns– This is a tyt combines the strength of metal and the aesthetic features of ceramic to create a tooth that is both strong and appealing.

WHAT OUR HAPPY PATIENTS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT AO4+ SMILE SOLUTION

WHY CHOOSE ANACAPA FOR YOUR DENTAL CROWNS?

When considering the dental crown treatment, some patients wonder about the difference between a dentist and a prosthodontist. Why would one choose a prosthodontist over your neighborhood dentist who is well equipped to handle dental crown procedures? The short answer to that is a prosthodontist like Dr. Jivraj is specially trained in the field of dental prostheses, giving him a higher level of skill and experience than your average dentist. While a dentist might simply look at a tooth and start the process of dental crowning, Dr. Jivraj will first inspect every aspect of your mouth and surrounding areas. Everything from your gum condition to your root health will be determined, and by doing so will ensure you will receive the correct procedure to overcome whatever ailment you may be experiencing.

When it comes to the production of your dental crowns, we only work with the very best laboratories. As an expert prosthodontist, Dr. Jivraj has the training and education to know what qualities and characteristics make for the best laboratory technicians. When working with the Anacapa Dental Art Institute, you will be privileged to receive crowns from dental laboratories around who produce nothing but beautiful and natural looking crowns.

WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE FOR GETTING A DENTAL CROWN AT VENTURA?

Involving a comprehensive understanding of biomechanics, biology, and aesthetics, the fabrication of dental crown is indeed an advanced and effective restorative process. The complexity of the procedure will depend on the patient’s requirement.

For instance, when a patient requires a number of restorations or in cases where the dental crowns need to be fabricated for the front teeth (the crowns would need to be harmonious with the adjacent teeth).

A Typical Dental Crown Procedure Would Go Like This:

Step 1. Initial Presentation And Evaluation of the Various Treatment Options to the Patient

Your mouth, teeth, and general health will be evaluated and thereafter, appropriate treatment options provided

Step 2. Diagnosis And Fabrication of Prototype Crowns

This is where analogue or digital models of the patient’s jaws are created followed by the creation of new teeth with improved shape in wax or on the computer

Step 3. Preparation, Impression Procedure And Placement of Crown

This is the part where your tooth is prepared to be of a very specific shape so as to accept the crown. In order to create the perfect model, your dentists will make an impression of your tooth and jaw with the help of a digital scanner or dental silicone.

Step 4. Fabrication And Delivery of Permanent Crowns

On completion, the dental crown is evaluated and permanently secured to your tooth with an adhesive.
