What Are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns are most commonly used for filling gaps in teeth and to restore your smile if you
have broken or damaged teeth. Crowns can also help the mouth perform it’s duties more – like
biting and chewing. Because oral health is linked to your overall health, a crown can also have
positive health impacts on the whole body.

A crown is a cover or cap that a dentist can place on your tooth or a crown can also be placed
over an implant. Crowns both can improve how a tooth looks and restore function, also it can
help with the alignment of the jaw and surrounding teeth. Unlike dentures, crowns can’t be taken
out, they act as your teeth would.

Crown procedure

A crown procedure starts with your dentist inspecting the tooth and it’s health to ensure that it
can support a crown. Your dentist will then prepare the tooth to get a crown. Sometimes this
means filing down the tooth/surrounding teeth. Once the tooth is ready, your dentist will make
an impression of the tooth. Using our cerec machine, you can get a crown in the same day
instead of getting a temporary crown, using impressions, and then you having to go back to the
dentist. Your crown will be made and generated in one appointment to save you time and the
added stress on the healthy part of your tooth. It’s almost like having a private dental lab right in
our office.

Your dentist will then put your crown on your tooth and make any adjustments to the crown to
make sure that it looks and fits like your original teeth would. Your crown will have the same
function, look, and feel like your teeth.

How to care for your crowns?

Just like your teeth, a crown needs to be cared for. A crown is also susceptible to gum disease
or tooth decay. You will need to brush and floss your teeth as well as you can also use a
mouthwash.

I couldn't love Paradise Dental more! High tech, new facility with super friendly staff. Cindy is my hygienist and she is just awesome. Also, there hours are perfect for people who work full time! My appointment was at 7pm last night! Who loves their dentist???? This girl

First Class Facility. Modern equipment. Professional service. This is what I have come to expect from Drs' Steve and Helyne and their entire staff.

It's the fanciest dentist I have ever been to. I really like the moisturizing heated hand treatment they offer while you're getting your teeth cleaned. They have lots of other little extras that make this place stand out above the rest. The cleaning and exam were pretty typical, but no complaints. I'm always wary of getting advice to replace fillings when they aren't bothering me, but that didn't happen.

Great experience as always!!! State of the art office with a friendly and professional staff. I would not trust any other practice with my dental care.

My first visit consisted of a consultation with Dr, Helyne Hamelburg whom I found to be very calm and relaxing as I am not a fan of any dental procedure. I will be having gum surgery in a few weeks and am actually not fearing the procedure which I have been putting off for years. Office is certainly state of the art which I had never experienced anything like it. Glad she was recommended to me by another Doctor who knew she would be a good fit for me.

The providers, hygienists, the entire staff are wonderful. I can't recommend them enough. They are efficient, courteous, and the office is inviting. I never thought I would say this about a dental office, but I get relaxed there. You get treated like your the only patient they have.
Jessica O.
Amazing! Accommodating! you can express your fears and they will help you avoid/overcome them! Would recommend them to everyone! oh! and the best part, they have all the state of the art equipment to make the visit fast, painless and less frequent appointments!
