Coming to Channel Island Family Dental has been such a positive experience. I used to dread going to the dentist, but not anymore. The Dentist and staff are very professional, they don't hurry to answer any question or concerns we might have. I definitely recommend going there.

In the past I had very positive experiences with this place and their staff and Dr. G. However during the pandemic they made or cast an impression for a partial denture that was very poorly made and did not fit. It actually causes me great pain to eat while wearing it so I cannot wear it. Fortunately I kept the old partial. The fact that I was charged a 155.00 co pay for a device that does not fit my mouth properly because the person who did the impression did not seem to do it correctly and I believe they were a trainee is also sad to me. They did not seem to have any desire to make this situation right. If I ran a business like that I would have sent the entire partial in to be redone since they didn't make it properly to begin with, but I guess because they got their money from my co-pay and my insurance company they were done with me. It's very disappointing for me because I used to really enjoy going there and I even told a few friends of mine about how great they were. I guess things change. Channel Islands Family Dental certainly did. Oh, they solicit for positive reviews online too, and tell you they will give you a gift certificate or something if you make positive reviews. That seems insincere to me because they should let the work they do speak for itself. It's easy to make a review that is favorable, it's much more challenging to deliver professional and "caring" care. Especially to someone who has paid a co-pay for it and did not get what they paid for.I am editing this review on July 20, 2021.I have had some recent experiences that I have really appreciated with Channel Islands Family Dental and they are going beyond what I would expect in trying to make my partial denture issue right. I really appreciate that too. I think it just took a while for everyone to get on the same page because of the challenges with the pandemic and my disability of not being able to hear and so I think they are trying really hard to make my situation right, and I appreciate that greatly. I am glad to be a patient of theirs.

Dental Crowns

Today, with advances in science and technology, dental crowns are more sophisticated in terms of their properties such as resistance, toughness, texture, shine, opacity, adaptability, durability and mimicry with the remaining biological structures; making the prognosis of dental rehabilitation treatment more encouraging in many cases. However, it should be noted that all prosthetic treatment always goes hand in hand with the operator’s expertise, to make a precise diagnosis and to indicate this or that rehabilitative treatment. The different dental crowns that are offered in clinics vary according to the place, culture, education, but especially the purchasing power of the patients.

What is a Crown?

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth covering it to restore its shape and size, strength, and/or to improve its appearance. The crown fully encases the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line.

Crowns are custom made to fit over each tooth. They can be made of a variety of different materials, including ceramics, porcelain-and-metal, gold, or resin.

Which Crown Material Should I Choose?

Crowns - Channel Islands Family Dental Office | Dentist In Ventura County

In order to recommend you wich materials are the best, your dentist will first consider factors such as:

• Tooth’s location

• How much of the tooth will show when you smile

• Position of your gum tissue

• Function of the tooth that needs the crown

• How much natural tooth is remaining

• Color of the surrounding teeth

How Do I Know if I Need a Crown?

Crown

If you have a large cavity that’s too big for a filling, it may be time for a crown. You may also need a crown if your tooth is: severely worn down, cracked or weakened. Crowns are also recommended following a root canal on a tooth, because the tooth is more fragile and needs protection.

You may be a candidate for a crown if you’re missing a tooth, and the dentist needs to put in a dental bridge or a tooth implant.

Materials that crowns are made of

1. Ceramics:

Ceramics

Among them are the first ceramics enriched with feldspar and Lucite with a natural dental appearance, very high aesthetics, and low mechanical resistance and brittleness. The filling using this type of crown is disorganized because of poor techniques of coccion and loss of uniformity.

2. Metal- Porcelain:

dental crowns

These crowns have the greatest supply and demand within the dental landscape. These are characterized in terms of their aesthetic, mechanical, and optical properties and also because of their low cost compared to zirconia. The full porcelain ceramics known as EMAX and are in greater demand, widely distributed in European and American countries.

3. Zirconia:

Zirconia

Zirconium is a material with a white coloration. Thanks to which its aesthetic, natural results can be obtained with adequate luminosity. This material is very biocompatible. Thus, the prosthesis will be easier tolerated by the surrounding tissues. Also, Zirconium has the highest properties of hardness and resistance to attrition and flexion.

4. Lithium disilicate:

Lithium disilicate

This ceramic, like porcelain, has little tolerance to permanent deformation, but it has excellent aesthetic results, which is why it is indicated for veneers of anterior teeth.

The dentist will find a dental crown convenient when:

Dentist showing

In situations such as:

Replace large fillings, when not enough tooth remains

Prevent a weakened tooth from breaking

Cover a discolored or deformed tooth

Cover a tooth that has undergone root canal treatment

Improve the aesthetic appearance of an anatomically affected tooth.

Repair a fractured tooth

Cover a dental implant

Place a bridge

It is comforting to know that our oral health is in the hands of dental professionals in whom we trust our smile. Still, it is necessary to advise people that dental treatments are lasting as long as patients will adopt the measures required to ensure the longevity of your dental crown or bridge, such as:
It will be essential to keep your gums and teeth healthy by brushing with fluoride toothpaste twice a day along with daily flossing.
Go to the hygienist or dentist regularly for regular check-ups and professional cleanings.
To avoid damaging the dental crowns or bridges, avoid chewing hard food, ice, or other hard objects.
