Utilizing meticulous sterilization techniques on all equipment and instrumentation, we promise safety and comfort in our state-of-the-art office setting.
What is a crown?
A crown is the part of your tooth that you can see above the gum line, while the roots lie below. When a natural crown is fractured or decayed and can’t be repaired by a filling, Dr. Trejo gently shapes and fit an artificial crown to restore the function and appearance of the damaged tooth.
How long does a crown appointment take?
The procedure takes about 1-2 hours, similar to having a filling done. During the first appointment, Dr. Trejo cleans and shapes the tooth and places a temporary crown. The following visit is when they replace the temporary for the permanent crown.
What do the procedures entail exactly?
Getting a crown is much like having a filling performed, both in length of time and comfort level. After decay has been removed and the tooth is reduced in size, leaving only healthy tissue, we take an impression that is used in creating the final crown. A second visit is scheduled for placement of the final crown. In the meantime, we place a temporary tooth to protect the reduced tooth and to allow you to use it as you would a natural tooth.
Dental Crowns Cost in Tijuana
Does it hurt to get a crown?
No. Thankfully, as with a filling and most dental procedures, local anesthesia is used to numb the area. You may feel a little discomfort as the anesthesia wears off but nothing that can’t be easily controlled with over-the-counter pain medications. We do offer a variety of sedation and anesthesia options upon request. Your comfort is our priority.
Can I eat after having a crown?
It’s best to wait about 30 minutes after the completion of your procedure before eating or drinking. We recommend you wait 24 hours before eating anything hard or sticky that might pull at the crown, as the cement is setting.
How long do crowns last?
Dental crowns can last up to 20 years, depending on care, location in the mouth, and the materials used for the procedure. We’ve seen them last even longer!
How do I care for a crown?
Care for a crown the way you care for your natural teeth. Simply brush twice and floss once daily, and make sure to keep up on your regularly scheduled cleanings with us.
