2. Preparing the old tooth for a dental crown
Dr. West prepares the natural tooth for the new dental crown. A temporary tooth crown is then attached to the natural tooth to provide protection while your permanent dental crown is being made.

Do You Have a Metal Tooth Crown?

If you have all-metal dental crowns that keep you from smiling, Dr. West can place porcelain crowns over your metal crowns, restoring the look of your natural teeth. Replacing metal crowns with tooth-colored porcelain can improve your smile and increase your confidence!
