Ceramic crowns have been used in restorative and cosmetic dental procedures for many decades now. Earlier, crowns were made from metals such as gold, silver, or amalgam. But thanks to the advancements in dental technology, we at Spa Dentistry in San Jose, CA have ceramic crowns and mostly use them as they offer excellent features compared to their metal counterparts.

How Are Crowns Placed?

Dental crowns require at least two visits to the dentist’s practice to be placed. When you visit Spa Dentistry for the initial consultation, we will conduct a thorough diagnosis to understand how severe your condition is and determine your need and eligibility for crowns. If we see you do need them and are eligible for them, we will prepare the teeth by cleaning them thoroughly and removing a thin layer of enamel from the tooth that will receive the crown. It is done to make space for crown placement.
