Dr. Carol Jin specializes in dental crowns and serves the San Ramon area of California. We also replace existing dental crowns with restorations that look and feel like your natural teeth. Our goal is to provide quality dentistry that is virtually undetectable.
When damage to a person’s teeth is extreme, and beyond repair, we can use porcelain crowns to make the smile appear as new. This is an extremely reliable technique for repairing the most severe of oral problems. We can also permanently replace missing teeth to offer a complete smile and a functional bite. These treatments are used for a long-lasting correction of major oral problems. It is usual for crowns to last for 20 to 30 years, which is as close to permanent as treatment can get.
How long does it take to fit?
Fitting a dental crown requires at least two visits to our office. Initially, we will remove decay, shape the tooth, and fit your bite with a temporary crown.
On the next visit we will remove the temporary and then place and adjust the final crown. Finally, we will cement the crown into place and you have a new beautiful looking tooth.

What are the capabilities of dental crowns?
Crown and bridgework is a very reliable solution for major dental problems caused through accidents, diseases or wear and tear. Major problems can usually be corrected using these techniques. The material used in these repairs is either high-grade porcelain or porcelain bonded to gold. A higher strength of the porcelain and gold materials is recommended to treat the most serious of oral problems. Where accidental damage has occurred, resulting in lost teeth, or where teeth have broken away through excessive wear, or as the result of old fillings breaking, crowns and/or bridges can be used as a long-term solution. Many people have unexplained pain from filled back teeth, which is usually due to hairline cracks in the chewing part of the tooth. Placing crowns on these teeth relieves the pain and allows a return of full function for these teeth. In front teeth, older fillings can both weaken the teeth and cause “appearance” problems due to staining or chipping. Porcelain crowns and bridges are suitable in cases where porcelain veneers are not. In teeth with root canal fillings, dental crowns can prevent breakage.
