Dental Crowns in Poway

How do I know if I need a dental crown?

If you have a significantly damaged tooth, a dental crown may be the best way to restore it. A dental crown can also be used to protect a tooth that has had a root canal or to hold together parts of a cracked tooth.

If your Poway dentist recommends a dental crown, getting one as soon as possible is essential. A dental crown will help prevent further damage to your tooth and restore its function and appearance.

The Dental Crown Treatment Process

When you visit our offices, Dr. Leila will begin by preparing the tooth. A small amount of the tooth enamel is removed to make room for the new crown. This process usually requires a local anesthetic to numb the area.

Imaging & Placement of Temporary Crown

The dentist will take an impression of your tooth (or teeth) so that the crown can be custom-made to fit perfectly. The dentist will offer a temporary crown as you wait for the permanent ones to be crafted. These transitory crowns are usually made from stainless steel or acrylic and should be worn for just a few weeks. However, they will help protect your tooth or teeth until your permanent crown is ready.

Final Fit

Once the crown is ready, you will return for a second appointment to have it cemented. During this appointment, your dentist will ensure that the fit is comfortable and secure. They will also check to ensure your bite is even and that the new crowns do not interfere with your natural teeth. If everything looks good, then you will be able to leave with your new crowns!

Match Your Natural Smile

When you get a dental crown in Poway, you can be sure it will blend perfectly with your smile. The color and shape of the crown will be matched to your existing teeth so that it looks like it belongs there. Since the crown is made of porcelain, it reflects light like your natural teeth.


Crowns are a durable option for repairing teeth. They can last up to 15 years with proper care. This means that you can keep smiling for years to come.
