Los Angeles Dental Crowns

Los Angeles Dental CrownsDental crowns are designed to restore teeth that have been severely damaged or decayed. The crown restores the tooth to its original size, shape, strength and appearance. They can be used to protect weak or cracked teeth, restore teeth that has been broken or worn down, protect teeth with large fillings, support dental bridges or implants, or cover misshapen or severely discolored teeth. Our dentist for dental crowns in Los Angeles generally applies dental crowns in two dental visits.

A dental crown can be made of various materials, including porcelain, metal,  and porcelain that is fused to metal and resin. If you need a crown, you and our Los Angeles dental crowns dentist will determine the best material for your crown at your first visit. Our specialist for dental crowns in Los Angeles may also take X-rays to check that the tooth roots are healthy and intact. The tooth will then be prepared for the crown. This procedure may include a root canal or the removal of a portion of the external tooth structure. If a large portion of the tooth is missing, your tooth may need to be built up with dental filling material before it can be encased in a crown.

Our Los Angeles dental crowns specialist will then use an impression or dental mold to create an accurate model of your mouth and ensure the crown fits your bite properly. The lab will use these impressions to create your new dental crown, which may take a few weeks. Before you leave our office, our dentist will protect your prepared tooth with a temporary crown, which is generally made of acrylic and held in place with temporary cement.

The permanent crown will be placed at your second appointment. Our dentist will first check the crown for color and fit. The area in which it will be placed will be numbed using a local anesthetic, and then the crown will be permanently cemented into place. You can ensure your crown lasts longer and your tooth below stays healthier by brushing and flossing daily along with seeing our dentist twice a year for dental exams and cleanings.
