32 Pearls is your home for top-quality dentistry, including dental crowns and procedures.
Dental crowns are a great way to replace ordinary teeth. Crowns can replace lost teeth, or even damaged or decayed ones. Dental implants are also available to replace all of your teeth from top to bottom.
Dental crowns are used for many common reasons, including attaching bridges, concealing dental implants, protecting weakening teeth, and restoring teeth fractures.
Broken teeth may be treated with dental crowns. Crowns are a great option for broken teeth if the breakage space is too ample for a filling. Broken teeth can be saved if discovered early enough.
Tooth decay can be treated with a crown. The crown will strengthen the area above and around the tooth or teeth that need replacement or restructure.
If you undergo a root canal procedure and wish to protect and strengthen the treated area, a crown may be recommended.
Crowns are used to improve the appearance of discolored teeth by covering the discolored fillings.
Dental crowns are composed of several different types of metals and ceramics, depending on the location of the tooth (front, back, side), type of repair, price, and appearance.
Types of Crowns
At 32 Pearls, we most frequently use zirconia crowns. The benefits of zirconia crowns include their strength and resilience. The zirconia can handle the force of the back teeth, protecting the bite. Zirconia is biocompatible, which means it doesn’t cause adverse reactions or inflammation in the body.
Crowns are used to restore the appearance and function of teeth. Several types of crowns are available for different purposes. For example, porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns are commonly used for front teeth because they have the best appearance.
Porcelain is a ceramic that provides an aesthetic alternative to dental amalgam, which has been used for decades but is not as aesthetically pleasing. However, unlike porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns, dental amalgam is more durable and less sensitive to temperature changes.
Dental Crown Procedure
We use quick and reliable state-of-the-art digital images to examine the tooth closely, allowing us to determine how best to reshape it. We contour the area for the temporary crown, adjusting and smoothing it until it is ready for a permanent one. The images also allows us to check for decay or structural damage in any areas where we will be working.
Your procedure can happen in two visits. (Sometimes more or less depending on your case.)
The 3-D scanner is used to help take a closer look for tooth reshaping and to fit the temporary crown. The results of the images will present a thorough look at both teeth and jawbone to be sure the area is clean and ready for the crown. The tooth is shaped with a file, any decay is addressed and managed at this time, and an impression is made on both sides of your mouth so that when the bite is equal, you get an accurate model or cast of your mouth.
32 Pearls uses advanced digital imaging technology and high-tech 3-D imaging to help create comfortable, customized crowns.

First, we remove the temporary crown and check the fit and color of the new crown. Then, a local anesthetic is used to numb the tooth and we permanently cement the new crown in place.
