About Dental Crowns
Dental crowns, which can sometimes be called dental caps, are used to repair natural teeth with extensive damage caused by tooth decay, infection or injury. The teeth that needs a dental crown cannot be repaired by traditional fillings. Dental crowns placed by our Culver City dentist will improve tooth shape, size and strength, providing long-term results.
What are the benefits of dental crowns?
- Restore broken and severely discolored teeth
- Improve chewing/bite problems
- Can act as anchors for bridges
- Redesign your smile
- Boost confidence
Dental crowns placed by our Culver City dentist can be completed in about two visits.. At the initial appointment, our dentist will remove decay from the tooth and prepare the tooth for the dental crown, prior to fitting and securing a temporary crown. In the follow-up visit at our Culver City office, the new permanent dental crown is put into place.
Does getting a Dental Crown hurt?
Getting a dental crown does not hurt and requires no downtime. Additionally, at our Culver City dental office, it is our priority to make sure all of our patients experience exceptional, comfortable dental service.
It is extremely important that any missing teeth be replaced, as missing teeth often affect bone structure, create difficulties to chew and bite while also putting the remaining teeth at risk for falling out. At our Culver City dental office, one option to replace missing teeth is by getting a dental bridge to help restore your smile.
What is a dental bridge?
A dental bridge looks like a partial denture. However, dental bridges are not removable and are fixed into place. Dental bridges look and function like normal teeth and are practically undetectable, matching the exact color of surrounding teeth.
How can I benefit from having a Dental Bridge?
Dental Bridges placed by our Culver City dentist can provide you with various benefits. Some advantages dental bridges include:
- Don’t slip or rub against gums
- Require no increased care, just normal brushing & flossing
- Permanently fixed in place
- Ensure long-lasting results
