Porcelain Dental Crowns
Our Beverly Hills dental crowns specialist uses porcelain crowns to provide the most aesthetically attractive restoration possible to teeth that have been seriously damaged or decayed. Porcelain crowns offer the most natural appearance possible and can be made to closely match your own natural teeth. Unlike porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns, all-porcelain crowns remain true to color and do not develop dark lines at the gumline.
Because porcelain crowns can be made quite thin compared to other types of crowns, our Beverly Hills porcelain crowns specialists will generally need to remove less tooth structure, which can ensure better long-term results. Porcelain is also more biocompatible than most metals, which can preserve your gum health.
Our specialist for porcelain crowns in Beverly Hills may determine you are a candidate for a crown if you have a tooth that has been weakened, cracked, broken, severely worn or that has a large filling. A crown may also be used to support a dental bridge or to protect a tooth that has undergone root canal therapy. At your first dental visit, your tooth will be examined and prepared. If the tooth is severely damaged, decayed or infected, we may recommend that you first undergo root canal therapy.

The tooth will be numbed before being prepared. The enamel will be shaped and contoured to make room for the crown. This is necessary to reduce irritation to the gum and ensure a proper bite. Impressions will be taken so that the dental laboratory can prepare your new porcelain crown. A temporary crown may be placed to protect your tooth.
After two to three weeks, you will return to our office so that our specialist for dental crowns in Beverly Hills can place your new crown. Once it is checked for fit and color, final adjustments will be made before the crown is bonded to your tooth using a special, high-intensity light.
