One of the most useful tools our dentist has for repairing several different problems with your smile is the dental crown. At Kathy Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. Kathy Daroee uses porcelain dental crowns in Woodland Hills, California, for their durability and their natural, attractive appearance. To see if a dental crown could be the smile solution for you, call 818-347-1550 today to plan your appointment.
To place a dental crown, Dr. Daroee will remove the enamel from your tooth and then take an impression. That impression will be used to create your crown which will protect your tooth down to the gumline. You will be given a temporary crown to wear until your permanent crown is created. When it is ready, it will be cemented into place. You will still need to brush and floss, since your tooth will still be vulnerable to decay at the gum line and periodontal disease could cause your crown to fail. Dr. Daroee can use a crown to:
- Support a large filling
- Cover a dental implant
- Improve the appearance or color of your tooth
- Protect a damaged tooth or a tooth that has had a root canal
- Hold a dental bridge in place
Our dentist and team will be happy to evaluate your smile and talk with you about how a dental crown could improve your appearance and oral health.
