Dental Crowns

When the outside of a tooth is damaged due to trauma, dental treatments or other factors, it may need protection to sustain function. Dental crowns and other dental repairs can add a protective exterior to a damaged tooth, protecting a weakened tooth from further damage. At Laguna West Dental Care in Elk Grove, we offer dental crowns, inlays and onlays to restore damaged teeth, with white or tooth-colored options available for an attractive tooth repair.

Dental crowns or caps can be made from several materials, including gold, silver and porcelain. A mold or 3D image is used to recreate the shape of the tooth from the desired material. A significant amount of the tooth material is removed, and a crown is placed over the tooth and bonded in place. This can protect the tooth underneath while creating a beautiful new tooth that is functional and blends naturally. Many dental crowns can be color-matched to the exact color of your natural teeth.

Restore Cracked or Damaged Teeth

Dental crowns are often used when a tooth has too much damage to be repaired with fillings or bonding. A broken or severely cracked tooth may require a dental crown to restore the biting surface and protect the structure. Dental crowns are also recommended after extensive dental work, including root canals or when large cavities are removed.

Dental Inlays and Onlays

When only the top or side of a tooth has extensive damage, a full crown may not be needed. Instead, dental inlays or onlays can be used. These coverings are usually made from porcelain and created in a dental lab to fit over a portion of the tooth.

If you have a damaged, broken or cracked tooth, Laguna West Dental Care offers tooth restorations with dental crowns, inlays and onlays at our office. Contact us today to schedule your appointment.

Suzanne B.

As I was walking to my car after my appointment I thought, I sure am happy I come here. I get warm friendly service and gentle, thorough care throughout my visit. Dr. Chan and his staff are the best.

Jennifer B.

We've been so very happy with Dr. You and his staff since we moved to Sacramento in 1985! We've followed him to the current location in Laguna...he and his staff take such good care of all our dental needs. I have no hesitation in recommending their services!

Stephanie O.

In my 65 years on the planet, and hundreds of hours in former dentists' offices, Dr. You and his staff are by far the best I've ever encountered. My very recent crown replacement was 100 percent pain free! All phases of treatment, from removal of the old crown, mold taking and making, to the permanent placement with my brand new well-matched molar, was seamless. I respect and applaud Laguna West Dental Care for taking such talented care of me.

Janet S.

Since retiring, I drive and hour and a half each way to continue to see Dr. You and his entire staff ... and I hate to drive. No better dentist and hygenists in Sacramento and I have tried others over the years. Thank you for a great experience each and every time Laguna West!

Norman H.

In my 50+ years, I've probably had 7 to 8 dentists and have had my share of bad experiences that made me fearful of going to the dentist. But, after switching to Dr. Chan in 1991, I really couldn't be happier and don't dread dental appointments anymore. Dr. Chan is gentle and exceptionally good at giving shots that I can barely feel. He even calls me in the evening after every procedure to make sure I'm doing okay. The staff is friendly and caring and the facilities are nice. Highly recommended.

Carol D.

We've been patients of Dr. You and Dr. Chan since my son was in kindergarten - now a County employee. Everyone on the staff is great. I had one bad experience with a dentist referred by my insurance co. - I'd NEVER see a dentist again without a personal referral. Consider this mine to you -- Laguna West is an excellent choice!
