Do you want to restore your smile with a crown or bridge? If so, don’t hesitate to contact Oak Park Dental Associates today. We will make sure you receive the best dental care and treatment.
Dental crowns are artificial dental restorations that fit over all or part of a tooth that is threatened by a cavity or weakened by fractures. They are attached directly to the tooth using a powerful dental cement or other adhesive. The primary purpose of a crown is to reinforce teeth that are otherwise compromised, and the secondary benefit of dental crowns is that they can enhance the appearance of those affected teeth.
Dental crowns cover the damaged area of a tooth entirely, thereby preventing food particles and other potential irritants from entering into contact with the tooth. This isolates the cavity or other decay and prevents it from getting worse. It also helps to avoid pain that could occur when those food particles come into direct contact with a nerve ending in cases of extreme decay.

Dr. Nathaniel Lim
Dr. Nathaniel Lim has been rehabilitating patients' mouths since 2000. Dr. Lim cares for patients with jaw joint problems, jaw pains, headaches and bite problems. The best solution to many of these symptoms is often the preservation of what your body was “built” to do. This is often dictated by how your jaw closes and the joint position.
In nearly all cases, dental crowns are put only on adult teeth that have grown into the mouth fully. Otherwise, dental crowns are frequently used in patients of all ages and health levels, although they are more commonly used for molars than teeth at the front of the mouth.
We know that many patients are worried about crowns and bridges hurting. However, we do everything we can to assure you are comfortable during your appointments. We specialize in sedation dentistry in case this is something you need while getting a crown or bridge. In addition, we have a wide range of amenities in our office to ensure comfort and ease.
The crowns and bridges can vary in cost. It will depend on various factors. These may be the type of material that is being used, the number of crowns or number of appointments you need, whether sedation of any type is used, and other factors as well, as well. We do want our patients to know that we offer financing options and we do accept insurance, too. If you need crowns and bridges, get a hold of us right away and we can help you to figure out the cost.
Yes, we do. Our office is in-network with most insurance companies, and we file all dental insurance plans. Call our office and speak to a member of our friendly front desk staff to learn more about insurance, payment options, and more.
