Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are often recommended for cracked, broken, or decayed teeth that can’t be repaired by a simple composite filling. They are designed to align with your natural bite and improve the function and appearance of your smile.

For the past 30 years, Dr. Yip has been using dental crowns made from high strength ceramic and porcelain materials to recreate the natural beauty of his patients’ smiles. They are commonly placed on top of implants or teeth that have received root canal treatment, and permanently bonded to the remaining base structure of the natural tooth. Crowns are custom created for each individual patient, and won’t stain or deteriorate over time like natural teeth. A typical dental crown procedure requires two office visits to complete.

During your first visit, Dr. Yip thoroughly examines your smile and then takes a dental impression to fit you with a temporary crown. When you return for your second visit, the temporary will be removed, the fit will be examined and adjusted as needed, and your new dental crown will be permanently bonded into place.

A properly fitted and well maintained dental crown can last upwards of 25 years, and is a great treatment option for patients that need to restore natural function and strength to their smile. Is a dental crown the right treatment option for you?
