How to Tell If You Need a Crown

Dental crowns from Downey Park Family Dentistry in Modesto may be right for you if you have a damaged or decayed tooth. If you suspect that you have a cavity or an infected tooth, or your tooth has recently been damaged by dental trauma, a crown may be the best option for restoring your smile.

Crowns are also sometimes used to replace large, old fillings that are wearing out, and to cover up teeth after root canal therapy. More rarely, they can be used for purely cosmetic purposes if an alternative cosmetic treatment is not appropriate. If you have a damaged tooth, call our Modesto dental office today to book a consultation to see if a crown is right for you.

How Long Do
Dental Crowns Last?

We make our crowns in our highly specialized dental lab. We use the highest quality dental materials and well trained lab technicians to create an aesthetically-pleasing, perfect-fitting dental crown that will last many years, usually 15 years or more. You can be sure that your crown from our Modesto dentist will provide you with long-lasting smile restoration.

To maximize the lifespan of your crown, simply care for it like you would care for a normal tooth. Make sure you brush at least twice a day for two minutes, and floss once a day. In addition, make sure you see Dr. Acree and the team at Downey Park Family Dentistry in Modesto for a professional cleaning every six months. And don't forget to ask out our dental membership plan that helps you save money on dental care!
