Teeth undergo a surprising amount of pressure every day when you chew, and even more if you grind or clench your teeth. When a tooth has sustained damage through decay, trauma or other causes, it can become susceptible to breakage in this weakened state. A dental crown may be required to provide the strength, stability and protection needed to prevent further damage.

A dental crown is a general dentistry treatment that provides protection for the damaged tooth by covering the entire visible part of the tooth with a shell. Instead of chewing pressure being concentrated on the remaining parts of the tooth, it is now distributed across the entire area of the crown. This reduces or eliminates the possibility of more damage occurring to the tooth.

Restore Cracked or Damaged Teeth

Cracked or damaged teeth become more susceptible to decay and further damage if repairs are not made in a timely fashion. Bacteria will build up in the damaged area and can start the decaying process. Prompt treatment prevents this from happening and provides protection from additional damage.

A tooth damaged by severe decay may undergo root canal therapy. Such teeth become brittle over time because the nerves have been removed. The tooth is no longer receiving the nutrients needed to make it strong. A crown will protect the tooth from breaking and provide strength and stability.

Dental Inlays and Onlays

While a crown protects a tooth with severe damage or a large filling, there are cases where a partial crown will give the tooth the protection it requires. In these instances, an onlay or inlay may be recommended.

An onlay is used when the side or cusp of a tooth is involved and only a partial crown is needed. An inlay is used to restore a large cavity or damage on the biting or occlusal surface of the tooth.

The dental team at Engineered Smiles will determine the proper method for protecting your damaged tooth and restoring its natural look. Contact us today to book your appointment.

Jennifer W.

Absolutely love this place, I’ve been coming here for the last two years. I didn’t have insurance when I first started, and they had a great payment plan that they were able to let me work with. I see Jennifer, and she is the absolute best! Dr. Wang and his entire staff have always been extremely friendly and helpful. I will continue coming back to this location for years to come come!

Like most people I don't particularly enjoy going to the dentist. The staff, hygienists, and Dr. Wang himself make this practice the best one I have ever gone to. I have been I patient for over a year now. I recently made the decision to get a filling from another dentist redone. That filling had me terrified because my last dentist didn't properly prep me. I told Dr. Wang and he listened very attentively and took the necessary steps to make sure I was properly numbed and fixed my filling and I didn't feel a thing! The shop itself is very clean and organized. It's and old Bank building and they cleverly used the value for the X-ray room. A big shout out to Jennifer for being great and very gentle with my cleanings. Also, the office manager Autumn, for always working with insurance for me and getting the financials as low as possible without me having to ask. I have recommended several people to this practice and all have had great experiences and continue to go back. This practice is absolutely worth checking out!

Dr. Wang and his amazing technology create incredible results. I have had an implant and a crown and they are perfect replicas of my original teeth, only healthy. Also, the work was efficient and practically pain free!! He and his support staff are all kind and gentle. This practice is highly recommended both by me and by my husband!

Dr Wang went above and beyond to make sure I thoroughly understood his proposed treatment plan for a front tooth implant. He spent almost an hour on the phone with me addressing all my questions and concerns and outlining his reasons for choosing a particular method or timeline. He was patient and specific. The following day he spent even more of his time demonstrating some of the incredible technology he would be using to ensure success of the procedure. He is incredibly smart and his engineering knowledge seems to be coming in handy!! Wonderful dentist with a broad range of talent!

Sanjay P.

I’ve continued to use Dr. Wang as my dentist for several years and have always been more than happy with him. His staff is excellent and Jennifer, my dental hygienist, was friendly and did a great job. Dr Wang is always thorough and takes the time to answer all the questions I have - I trust him and continue to refer friends, family and coworkers to him and they have always been happy to say the least!

Margo W.

I could not get my regular dentist and Dr Wang popped up on Google as if by magic! I have a severe phobia about dentists but the glowing reviews about Dr Wang and his staff gave me courage to make that call after years of putting off the dentist. I was still anxious as I arrived for my appointment (I would not have gone but for the pain I was in) Dr. Wang was so personable cheerful and took his time explaining the procedure. He was very gentle. Even though I can't remember their names I can't say enough about his staff who displayed the same patience and encouragement. No one has paid me to do this review. It's all my true feelings. Dr Wang you have a patient for life in me
