Expertly Crafted Ceramic and Porcelain Crowns in Encino
If you have a severely damaged or decayed tooth, Craig Glick DDS can help. Dr. Glick has lots of experience in creating and placing crowns that are not only functional but also beautiful. These crowns can be used to seal up a cracked, broken, cavity-riddled or otherwise damaged tooth, often saving the tooth from extraction. Crowns protect the nerves and tissue within the tooth, eliminate tooth pain associated with exposed nerves and restore the surface of the tooth to its natural and useful condition. Plus, Dr. Glick’s crowns look totally natural. If you have a problem tooth, please contact our office and see if your tooth can be saved by ceramic or porcelain crowns in Encino.
Dr. Glick Gave Me a Gorgeous Replacement Crown
“When I was thirteen I dove into the short end of a swimming pool. I ended up getting a cap on my front right tooth and it was fine. I didn’t see any problem with it until I met my wife. And then for the wedding pictures it needed to be fixed. The decision to come here and actually have the cap removed was really painless. Dr. Glick talked me through the whole procedure, what would happen, how long the temp would be on. I was kind of weary about having a temp for a week but there was no pain. I didn’t feel any of that nerve pain that is often associated with not having a cap. It was really quite a good experience and the wedding photos afterward looked great.”
Is it Time to Get Crowns from Your Encino Dentist?
When it comes to getting crowns, you don’t necessarily want to wait until your tooth actually cracks or breaks. Instead, you can have Dr. Glick place crowns proactively in order to protect weak or brittle teeth from damage. For example, a tooth that has been severely afflicted with tooth decay could be protected from further damage using a crown. Old or broken fillings can also be covered with crowns to prevent infection and preserve the integrity of the tooth in cases where there is not enough healthy tooth material left to support a replacement filling. If you haven’t been proactive about your dental care, don’t worry! Dr. Glick can still potentially use crowns to save your teeth even after they have broken or become painful. Please contact us to set up an appointment and get Dr. Glick’s expert opinion regarding restoring your teeth with crowns.
Craig Glick DDS, A Premier Dental Crown Provider
When you get crowns from a Encino dentist like Dr. Glick, the process is easy. First we will take digital x-rays to make sure the roots of your tooth are healthy enough to receive a crown. If your tooth is not healthy, you may need a root canal before your crown can be placed. Dr. Glick will prep your tooth for the crown by removing all the decayed material and filing the top and sides to make space for the crown. Then we will take an impression of your teeth and have a custom gold or porcelain crown created for you. In the meantime, we will protect your tooth with a temporary crown made of acrylic. When your permanent crown is finished, we will call you to schedule a visit for permanent placement of your gold or porcelain crowns in Encino.
Crowns Can Save Your Teeth
At Craig Glick DDS, we believe in helping patients to enjoy strong, healthy teeth well into their golden years. If you don’t care for your teeth properly, you can develop issues with tooth decay and gum disease that may eventually lead to tooth Constitution loss and the need for dentures or implants. However, if you catch problems with your teeth early, Dr. Glick may be able to save them using crowns and/or root canals. A tooth that is broken or has a large cavity but is otherwise healthy can be sealed and protected with a crown, while an infected tooth will require a root canal first. Please don’t hesitate to call us at (818) 305-6410 and set up an appointment with Dr. Glick to learn more about how crowns can help save your teeth.
Expert Advice on Caring for Crowns
While you will need to exercise caution during the week you have your temporary crown, as soon as your permanent crowns are placed you can pretty much treat your newly crowned teeth just like the rest of your teeth. You should continue to brush and floss regularly, because any part of the tooth’s surface not covered by the crown will still be vulnerable to tooth decay. You should avoid biting down on hard or sticky foods that may fracture or dislodge your crown, and you may want to add an antibacterial mouthwash to your oral care regimen. If you ever have a problem with your crown, just call us at (818) 305-6410 or fill out our online contact form for help.
