Dental Crowns / Tooth Crown
Santa Monica, Pacific Palisades & Brentwood, CA Dentistry
Dental crowns are a strong, reliable treatment solution for patients with teeth that have lost their natural strength and structural integrity as a result of damage or decay.
Santa Monica dentist Dr. Ana Brightleaf offers custom-made porcelain dental crowns that are durable, beautiful and allow you to restore use of your tooth while protecting it from additional damage.
Dental Crown Uses
Porcelain crowns are frequently placed in situations where the patient’s tooth has been degraded by a large cavity. They are also especially helpful to treat fractures and breaks caused by hard foods, accidents or sports injuries.
Designing Your Tooth Crown
The dental crown procedure requires two visits.
First, impressions of your teeth will be taken to serve as the basis for your custom-made crown. You will be fitted with a temporary crown, which will be worn while your permanent porcelain crown is being crafted.
On your next visit, the permanent dental crown will be fitted and bonded to your remaining natural tooth. Porcelain dental crowns look, feel and function like your natural teeth, and for many patients they are an excellent solution for repairing damaged teeth.
