Metal Free Crowns in Canoga Park

Porcelain dental crowns are one of the most versatile restorations in dentistry today. They can be used to strengthen, restore and even replace teeth. Our Canoga Park dental crowns expert can help you determine if you are a candidate for dental crowns.

Our Canoga Park porcelain crowns expert may recommend porcelain dental crowns if you:

Porcelain crowns are designed to cover the entire visible portion of the tooth. The surface looks quite similar to natural tooth enamel and can be made to match the color of your adjacent teeth exactly. If you are a candidate for porcelain crowns, our expert in dental crowns in Canoga Park may need two to three dental appointments.

At your initial consultation, we will examine your tooth and surrounding structures. Dental X-rays and impressions may be taken. The tooth will be prepared, which requires anesthesia and some shaping of the natural tooth. If there is any untreated infection, we may recommend a root canal treatment before having the crown placed. After the tooth has been shaped, a temporary crown will be placed. Once the permanent crown has been created, our expert in porcelain crowns in Canoga Park will permanently bond it to your tooth, making any necessary adjustments for a comfortable bite and a natural look.

Once your porcelain crown is in place, you will need to take care of it the same way you take care of your other teeth. Brush two times a day or after meals, and floss daily. You may need to avoid foods that are extremely sticky, such as caramel, or hard. You may also need to avoid using your teeth as tools or chewing on non-food objects. Routine dental checkups give us an opportunity to ensure your crown stays in great condition and keep your whole smile healthier.

Restore Your Smile Today

Dental crowns are often used to finish off other procedures such as dental implants. They also replace severe cases of tooth decay that have resulted in a large amount of tooth loss. Crowns provide dentists a way to restore form and function to your tooth without the need for an extraction. It is always best to save as much real tooth/enamel as possible.
