Welcome to Char Dental, the comprehensive, family-friendly dental practice in Honolulu, Hawaii, where we use state-of-the-art dental technology, including CEREC® one-visit restorations for our patients seeking a high-quality, natural-looking dental crown. Dental crowns provide a dental restoration which is beyond the scope of a dental filling to repair.

As well as covering a tooth that is damaged, weakened or discolored, our porcelain dental crown can be used to help a tooth’s shape or appearance to look more attractive, and also to keep the bite healthy as a crown prevents the teeth from shifting–which can happen when teeth are missing.

Our porcelain crown is created to match your own teeth, making them a natural-looking replacement. The life of a dental crown can run anywhere between five to fifteen years, depending on the amount of stress you place on it and how well you care for your oral health in general. Taking excellent care of your crown means staying on top of your oral health which includes:

  1. Brushing at least twice a day
  2. Flossing daily at least once (particularly around the crown area where your gums reach the tooth)
  3. Avoiding hard foods, biting your fingernails and grinding and clenching your teeth
  4. Keeping up with routine professional dental cleanings and exams

Do you have a damaged or missing tooth that may benefit from wearing a dental crown? If so, Dr. Char and Dr. Mashimo in Honolulu, Hawaii, are here to help. To schedule an evaluation with our dedicated, skilled team, please call (808) 450-2155 today and let us restore your smile confidence!
