Dental Crowns Repair and Protect Damaged Teeth
A Trusted Solution
Made of incredibly strong, medical-grade porcelain, crowns are designed to withstand normal biting forces. With regular visits to the dentist and proper at-home care, dental crowns can last up to a decade or more.
Crowns are precisely matched to the shade of your surrounding natural teeth to blend seamlessly into your smile. CEREC restorations are also made of all-ceramic materials that are five times stronger than porcelain, so there is no need for a metal substructure. This produces incredibly natural-looking crowns that refract light just like enamel.
Dr. Paulerio and his entire staff are wonderful and always have been. We have known them for many years and it has always been a good experience. Would not change a thing. Five stars for sure. Our whole family goes there and we all feel the same way. Perfect!!!View On Google+

Dental Crowns Can Solve a Number of Issues
For Dr. Paulerio to place a dental crown, a certain amount of healthy dental tissue is necessary to support the porcelain restoration. If your tooth is too compromised or weakened, an extraction may be necessary. In this case, a dental implant can replace your tooth's roots, allowing our dentist to then restore your smile with a custom crown.
Protection after a Root Canal
Dr. Paulerio may recommend root canal treatment if decay has reached the inner portion of your tooth. A dental crown is typically placed afterwards at our San Diego, CA, office to protect the remaining tissue.
Conceal Cosmetic Issues
Cosmetic imperfections such as discolored and disproportionately sized teeth may be a source of embarrassment, causing you to hide your smile. Dental crowns are custom-crafted to blend with your natural teeth, and can provide added coverage to conceal flaws that other dental procedures such as porcelain veneers and dental bonding my not be able to provide.
