If a tooth suffers from significant damage or decay, saving it may still be possible. Dental crowns from our experienced dentists, Dr. Coleman and Dr. John, can preserve most of the natural tooth structure while restoring the strength and beauty of your smile. At our practice, we offer a variety of options, including all-ceramic, porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM), and gold, which will be customized to suit your unique needs and preferences. Bridges can be used in cases where more than one tooth is lost in a row. Additionally, porcelain dental crowns are utilized with dental implants to give you a sturdy, natural-looking result you can be proud to show off.
Porcelain dental crowns offer numerous benefits. Designed to repair and reinforce a tooth’s structural integrity, a dental crown (sometimes called a cap) can be used if a tooth is worn down, fractured, misshapen, or decayed. When used with dental implants, the crown is placed atop the post in the final step of the procedure. Each dental crown is tailored to provide an exceptional fit and appearance and to last as long as possible.
I called Coleman & Coleman in the midst of the Covid pandemic, due to a cracked molar. I’d just moved to Oceanside and heard about them through my sister and her neighbor. I left a message on their machine and promptly received a call back. The woman I spoke to (Erin I believe. I apologize for not being certain) was courteous, empathetic and professional. She got me in to see Dr. Coleman, III, right away. Once at my appointment I was made to feel as if I’d been a patient for years. Sarah and Dr. Coleman were wonderful, making my comfort and best outcome their priority. I had a temporary crown on the first visit and today I received the permanent crown. There was no discomfort and the crown fits perfectly.
As new residents of Oceanside my entire family has now found our go to dental practice. Thank you to the entire Coleman & Coleman team. And a special thank you to Sarah and Dr. Coleman,III.

The porcelain dental crown procedure is typically completed over the course of two appointments. As part of the process, we employ some of the most advanced dental technology available to optimize the outcome. Our doctors will prepare your teeth, take 3D images of your oral structures, and create a model of your teeth. This information will be sent to a lab where skilled technicians will produce a high-quality crown that matches the color of your existing teeth. While the permanent crown is being fabricated, you will be fitted with a temporary crown for your comfort and convenience. Dr. Coleman or Dr. John will then custom-fit and bond the permanent crown to your teeth. This approach helps to ensure the result will be as durable, aesthetically appealing, and indistinguishable from your natural teeth as possible.
