When teeth become badly damaged or decayed, they can compromise the health, function, and brightness of your smile.
Dental crowns are custom-made dental restorations designed to fit over the natural tooth structure, providing strength and reinforcement.

Benefits of Dental Crowns
Improved Oral Health
Left untreated, dental damage and decay can severely compromise your oral health, leading to increased discomfort, infection, and even tooth loss. After removing existing decay and damage from your affected tooth, Dr. Mortensen will use a crown to protect the remaining structure.
Modern dental materials, such as porcelain, mimic the color and translucency of natural enamel. As a result, crowns placed by your Fountain Valley dentist are virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth. Because they cover the entire surface of the tooth, these restorations can also mask cosmetic imperfections and improve the look of your smile.
Crowns are made with high-quality materials like porcelain and are built to withstand years of chewing. With proper care and maintenance, dental crowns can last up to a decade. Our dentist will provide detailed instructions to help keep your restoration looking and feeling great for as long as possible.

Types of Dental Crowns
Temporary crowns are used to cover your tooth after it has been resized in preparation for your crown. Dr. Mortensen provides temporary crowns to patients who are waiting for their permanent restorations to be fabricated by our trusted lab.
Unlike temporary crowns, permanent crowns are designed to stay in place for the next several years. Dr. Mortensen will design your custom restoration to match the color, texture, and translucency of your surrounding teeth.
Our Fountain Valley, CA, dentist also offers implant-supported crowns for patients with missing teeth. Implant-supported crowns are attached to dental implants. Dental implants are surgically placed in the jawbone and can help prevent the bone loss that typically occurs when you lose a tooth.
How long will it take to restore my teeth?
Before beginning your treatment, we will assess your oral health using our advanced 3-D digital x-ray and cone beam computed tomography technology. We will carefully assess your images to ensure that your affected teeth are structurally strong enough to support dental crowns.
In most cases, dental crown placement can be completed in two office visits. Here are the basic steps you can expect during treatment:
Our crowns can be designed and placed in just two appointments.
