Restore Damaged Teeth with Porcelain Crowns
A crown is a permanent prosthetic that’s attached to the top of a tooth using special dental adhesive. The crown is a cap that protects the tooth and restores it back to its full function. Our attractive porcelain crowns also improve the tooth’s aesthetics by enhancing its shape, color, and alignment.
Dental crowns are very versatile and they can be used to remedy a number of issues. For example, sometimes a tooth is so ravaged by decay that it cannot be restored with a regular filling. These cases require a dental crown to fill the cavity and preserve the strength of the tooth.
Crowns are also effective for restoring a broken or fractured tooth. Additionally, a crown restoration can be good for treating a severely stained tooth that is resistant to whitening, a misaligned tooth, or a poorly shaped tooth. After root canal therapy, a crown is used to restore the tooth and to protect it from infection.
Trust Advanced Implant & Cosmetic Dentistry with Your Smile!
Our dentist in Beverly Hills is renowned for the quality of his work and the fantastic changes he provides to patients with dental crowns. These restorative dental treatments are recommended as a long lasting correction for serious tooth damage and decay. With proper care, patients can expect their dental crowns to last for 20 to 30 years, which is as close to permanent as dental treatment can get.
Fitting a crown requires at least two visits to our office. Initially, we will remove decay, shape the tooth, and fit it with a temporary crown of either plastic or metal. On the subsequent visit we will remove the temporary crown, and then fit and adjust the final crown. Finally, we will cement the crown into place and you have a new beautiful looking tooth.
Key benefits of dental crowns include:
- Replace missing teeth
- Offers structural support to misshapen teeth or badly broken teeth
- Completely natural look
- Corrected “smile” and functional chewing problems
Why Choose Crowns & Bridges?
Crown and bridgework is a very reliable solution for major dental problems caused by accident, disease, or routine wear and tear. This is thanks to the high quality materials our Beverly Hills dentist uses in crown treatments. At Advanced Implant & Cosmetic Dentistry, crowns and bridges are made of either high-grade porcelain, or porcelain bonded to gold.
When covering or replacing teeth at the back of your smile, Dr. Winter will typically use a higher strength porcelain and gold material to prevent the crown or bridge from cracking. Ultimately, these high quality materials ensure patients get to enjoy their newly restored smiles well into the future.
Worn or broken down fillings can also require replacement with a crown or bridge. In front teeth in particular, older fillings can both weaken the teeth and cause “appearance” problems due to staining or chipping. Porcelain crowns and bridges are suitable in cases where porcelain veneers are not.
