Stay Comfortable During the Dental Crown Process With Digital Scanning

Part of receiving a dental crown involves Dr. Pablo Cuevas making impressions of your teeth. That process usually involves filling your mouth with messy molding material, but not at our office. We use digital scanning technology instead. It’s faster and more comfortable for you and yields more accurate impressions.

If you’re getting a crown because of a broken tooth or other painful injury, we’ll numb your mouth with local anesthesia. You can also receive dental sedation if you need it. We can also make you comfortable with special touches like:

  • Heat and vibration feature on our dental chairs
  • Soft pillows
  • Blankets
  • Noise-reducing headphones

We’ll Make Sure You Get the Right Dental Restoration

While a dental crown is the right restoration to correct many dental problems, we may recommend different restorative dentistry procedures for:

  • Certain Cavities – Some cavities are small enough to be repaired with a tooth filling, an inlay, or an onlay. These restorations cover part of your tooth’s surface rather than all of your tooth like a crown does. We usually use a restoration that keeps as much of your tooth structure intact as possible.
  • Missing Teeth – While you can replace a single missing tooth with a dental crown attached to a dental implant, you can use a dental bridge instead if you’d rather not get an implant. You can also replace several adjacent teeth with a bridge. It can be supported by crowns on your own teeth or crowns attached to implants. Using implants avoids the need to drill into healthy teeth.
