Dr. Hada provides patients with durable porcelain crowns designed to restore the full function of your bite and the beauty of your smile. A dental crown can be used to provide support for a damaged or severely decayed tooth, or replace a tooth that is missing or has been extracted. This tooth-shaped restoration encapsulates a weakened tooth, or attaches to the abutment piece of a dental implant. Made of the finest quality materials, each crown is customized to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, and with proper care, they can last for many years.

Enjoy the Cosmetic and Functional Benefits of Dental Crowns
If you have a tooth that has been affected by trauma or advanced decay, or if you wish to replace a lost tooth with a dental implant, Dr. Richard K. Hada offers custom dental crowns at his Mission Viejo, CA, practice. Made of strong, natural-looking porcelain, these replacement teeth are also used to support dental bridges. To find out if a dental crown is a good restorative dentistry option for you, please schedule an appointment with Dr. Hada today.
Patients who are good candidates for dental crowns often need to address:
- A cracked or broken tooth
- Teeth that are severely worn
- A tooth with a large filling that has failed over time
- A weakened tooth at risk of fracture
- A tooth that has undergone a root canal
If you are receiving a traditional dental bridge, you will also need dental crowns. A bridge fills the gap when one or more consecutive teeth are missing. To hold the bridge in place, Dr. Hada place crowns on the teeth on either side of the gap. Crowns are also sometimes used for cosmetic reasons. Because they cover the whole tooth, they can drastically improve its appearance and complement your entire smile. Porcelain veneers can often accomplish the same effect with less tooth reduction than a crown, but because they are extremely thin, they may not be able to conceal imperfections like severe wear or discoloration. We will help determine which solution is right for you.
Dr. Hada employs the latest technology and offers sedation options to deliver comfortable, efficient treatment. First, your tooth will be cleaned and shaped so that the crown will fit properly. Dr. Hada will then take impressions of the tooth to send to a dental laboratory. If you are restoring an implant, Dr. Hada will take an impression of your implant and surrounding teeth. It will take between one and two weeks for the lab to create your new dental crown. In the meantime, you will wear a temporary crown. When you return to have your permanent crown placed, Dr. Hada will simply remove the temporary crown and cement the new one into place. Finally, he will make small adjustments so that your bite meets comfortably.
Made of durable, high-quality material, your dental crown will look completely natural and can even improve upon the appearance of your smile. They also restore your ability to chew comfortably. With good care, your dental crown can last for many years.
One of the best benefits of dental crowns is that they can help you avoid the need for tooth extraction. By retaining the healthy portions of your tooth and protecting them with a crown, you can prevent the bone atrophy that occurs when a tooth is lost. If a tooth must be extracted, a dental implant provides the next best solution, and can help you retain jaw bone tissue in the same way.
