San Francisco dental crowns cost less than replacing lost teeth

Dental Crowns Cost from San Francisco dentist

Dental crowns are named appropriately because they serve a very noble purpose in dentistry. They are commonly used to strengthen and protect damaged or weakened teeth. Crowns restore function and beauty to teeth that might otherwise require extraction.

A crown is essentially a hollow artificial tooth that dentists use to cover a decayed, damaged, weakened, or misshapen tooth. The advances in dental technology have resulted in crowns with a more natural appearance and greater strength than ever before. A tooth covered with a crown looks, functions, and feels just like a natural tooth.

The cost of a dental crown varies widely, depending on the specific case, dental insurance, and the material chosen to create the restoration. However, saving a tooth is much more economical than extracting the tooth and replacing it with a partial denture, fixed bridge, or dental implant.

Dr. Leo Arellano and his team place dental crowns in-office rather than referring their patients to a prosthodontist. The process for receiving a crown is very simple and straightforward.

  • Local anesthetic is given to numb the area and ensure patient comfort.
  • The damaged or decayed portion of the structure is removed and then the tooth is shaped for secure placement of the crown.
  • Impressions of the prepared tooth, as well as the nearby and opposing teeth are taken. They are sent to a dental lab along with instructions from the doctor about the chosen material, color and other pertinent information.
  • An interim crown is placed over the tooth to protect it until the permanent crown is ready.
  • When the doctor receives the restoration, the patient returns to the office for placement. The interim crown is removed and the permanent one is checked for shape, color, and fit. Minor adjustments may be made by the doctor if needed.
  • The crown is cemented in place with great care. It is crucial that the crown meets the opposing tooth properly, so Dr. Arellano will check this detail thoroughly. If placement is not done with precision, it can lead to failure of the restoration.

Highly recommend Dr Arellano’s practice.
Dr. Arellano and his staffs are pros and with long experience. It’s your true dentist next door. You can see from pictures hanged on the walk that most, if not all, of his staffs have been working with him for ages. It speaks for itself for how well Arellano DDS PC is!

Have been patronizing this place for many years. Back then I used to live in the same neighborhood. Their service is so good that even after I moved to a new neighborhood that’s super far away from here I still continue to come here for all my dental care.
