A leading cosmetic dentist located in the Century City/Westwood area of Los Angeles, Dr. Dani Benyaminy has extensive expertise in providing all type of dental prosthetics, including incredibly natural-looking porcelain crowns.
Crowns, sometimes called “caps,” are dental prosthetics created to protect and repair teeth that are damaged or decayed. With today’s advanced materials, crowns can be made to look nearly identical in both shape and color to a patient’s natural teeth. They are secured to damaged teeth with a durable bonding adhesive, providing both an aesthetic repair and protection from further damage. Crowns are also used to top dental implants. Having a crown installed usually entails two appointments. At the first visit, a mold is taken from which the crown is custom fabricated. During this initial appointment, Dr. Dani will also place a temporary crown on the damaged on the tooth. At the second visit, the permanent crown is installed.
Crowns offer an effective solution to a number of dental issues, including:
All-porcelain crowns, which can be tinted to match a patient’s neighboring teeth, are preferred when used on teeth that are readily visible to others. Crowns may also be made of porcelain fused to a metal base. While extremely durable, these crowns frequently cause the tooth to have a grey or silver tint or a thin grey line along your gum line. Therefore, they are typically only used on back teeth.
Crowns are meant to last a lifetime, and usually, do when correctly cared for. However, if a crown becomes damaged, loose, or falls off, it can easily be repaired by Dr. Dani during a visit to the office.
Crowns require the same good oral hygiene as natural teeth. They should be brushed twice a day with a with fluoride toothpaste and flossed at least once a day. Visiting the dentist twice a year for a professional cleaning and checkup also insurance the long-term durability of crowns. To prevent damaging crowns, avoid chewing hard foods or ice.
