Dentistry from the heart

Durable and beautiful dental restoration

We use cutting-edge materials and techniques to produce crowns with maximum longevity, which look, feel and function exactly like natural teeth.

What are Full Porcelain Crowns?

Full porcelain crowns, also known as Empress Crowns, are a state-of-the-art solution for restoring damaged or aesthetically compromised teeth. Made entirely from high-quality ceramic material, Empress Crowns mimic the natural translucency of your teeth, making them virtually indistinguishable from your real teeth. They are known for their excellent durability and superior aesthetic qualities, ensuring a beautiful smile and long-lasting functionality.

Empress Crowns are particularly ideal for front teeth due to their natural appearance. They’re perfect for addressing issues like severe discoloration, cracks, and structural damage. The all-ceramic composition ensures that these crowns are metal-free, reducing the risk of allergic reactions and ensuring biocompatibility with your oral tissues.

When Are Dental Crowns Required?

Restorative crowns are typically needed in situations involving:

  • Structural damage, such as a chipped or broken tooth due to an injury.
  • Aggressive tooth decay involving a large area of the tooth.
  • Recently completed endodontic therapy (root canal treatment)
  • Severe tooth wear.
  • Misshaped, atypical, or severely discolored teeth.
  • On top of dental implants for single tooth replacement.
  • Replacing a large, old dental filling.

Benefits of Dental Crowns

  • Improved Oral Function: A fixed dental crown recreates your visible tooth surface, providing both function as well as cosmetic benefits for anyone with worn or broken teeth.
  • Enhanced Aesthetics: Advanced ceramic materials are crafted to look as natural as possible, blending in with the teeth on either side of your new crown.
  • Durable and Long-Lasting: With the right home care, you can expect your dental crown to last up to 10-15 years.

Getting Full Porcelain Crowns – Empress Crowns in Lancaster

At AV Dental Wellness Group, obtaining your Empress Crown is a smooth and comfortable process. Here’s a step-by-step guide on what to expect:

  1. Initial Consultation: Your journey begins with an in-depth consultation with our expert dentist in Lancaster, CA. We will discuss your dental history and examine your teeth to determine if an Empress Crown is the right option for you. This is a great opportunity to ask any questions and share your smile goals.
  2. Tooth Preparation: Once we decide to proceed with an Empress Crown, the next step involves preparing the affected tooth. This includes gently reshaping the tooth to make room for the crown. Don’t worry—we’ll ensure you’re comfortable throughout this process, often using local anesthesia to numb the area.
  3. Impressions: After preparation, we take precise impressions of your tooth, which serve as the blueprint for crafting your custom Empress Crown. These impressions are sent to a specialized dental lab where highly skilled technicians create your crown with exceptional attention to detail.
  4. Temporary Crown: While your permanent crown is being made, we’ll place a temporary crown to protect your tooth and maintain aesthetics. This means you can go about your daily life without any interruption to your smile.
  5. Final Fitting: When your custom Empress Crown is ready, you’ll return for the final fitting. Our highly skilled dentist will ensure the crown fits perfectly, adjusting it as needed for comfort and appearance. Once everything looks and feels right, the crown will be securely bonded to your tooth.

Caring for Your New Dental Crown

Dental crowns are extremely durable, but they require good oral hygiene to ensure they last as long as possible. Always plan to brush around your crown twice a day, and be sure to floss around the crown daily. Flossing will not remove a permanent crown. However, not flossing a crown could allow bacteria to accumulate around the margins of your restoration, leading to recurring tooth decay, gum disease and bone loss, and crown failure. Be sure to plan a checkup and cleaning at AV Dental Wellness Group at least twice a year to have your dental work evaluated.

Types of Dental Crowns

Depending on which tooth is being restored, dental crown materials may vary. For example, teeth in the front of your smile that are highly visible are best treated with porcelain or ceramic crowns, which are both durable as well as aesthetically attractive. On the other hand, we might recommend a different material for an upper back tooth due to the heavy biting forces it’s exposed to each day. Temporary crowns—such as those made out of resin or stainless steel—are used between visits to protect your tooth but aren’t appropriate for long-term restorative purposes.

Our Lancaster dentist will discuss each option with you so that you can play an active role in co-planning your smile reconstruction.

Cost of Dental Crowns in Lancaster, CA

The fee for a dental crown can vary significantly, depending on the type of materials being used and how many crowns you need, or if a tooth requires a build-up beforehand. Additionally, factors like insurance benefits can reduce the price of your new “cap.” Depending on your situation, the average fee can range between $500 to $2000 per tooth. To ensure clear pricing on all treatments, AV Dental Wellness Group provides detailed treatment plans that outline all fees, estimated insurance benefits, and optional financing plans to every patient.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do dental crowns last?

On average, a well-maintained dental crown lasts at least 10-15 years. However, it’s not unheard of to have crowns last 20 years or more with good home care.

Why is my tooth sensitive after getting a dental crown?

As your tooth’s nerve responds to the enamel being reshaped during the crown preparation phase, it’s natural to experience some heightened sensitivity. Symptoms tend to be temporary, improving in a matter of days or weeks after your permanent crown is placed. If sensitivity persists, our Lancaster dentist may need to make adjustments to the way your crown bites against the opposing teeth.

Does it hurt to get a dental crown?

Getting a dental crown is just as comfortable as having a routine dental filling. To ensure a gentle process, we use numbing medications that desensitize your tooth before making any adjustments. Sedation is also available upon request. Some minor soreness at the injection site or in your jaw is to be expected.

Is there a chance my dental crown will fall off?

Temporary dental crowns are worn after the preparation appointment before your permanent crown is placed. These crowns may come off if you chew sticky food or floss around them. However, permanent crowns are securely fixed to your tooth and are safe to floss (but we do recommend avoiding sticky foods.) The only reason why a permanent crown may fall of is usually because of recurring decay around the tooth.

Definition of common dental crowns terminology

Dental restorations: Restorative dentistry focuses on repairing or replacing damaged or missing teeth.

Dental Implants: A dental implant is a small post, usually made of titanium, that serves as a substitute for the root of the tooth.

Root Canal: Root canal is a treatment to repair and save a badly damaged or infected tooth instead of removing it.
