Find out why a crown might be the best restoration for improving your oral health.
The last thing you ever wanted to deal with was a broken tooth. We get it. But now that it’s happened it’s time you did something about it, and fast. Fortunately, our Monrovia, CA, dentist Dr. Elaine Lu, prosthodontist Dr. Nissim Benbassat, and exodontist Dr. Chad D’Abilio at Healthy Life Dental can restore your damaged smile with perfectly crafted and resilient dental crowns.
What is a dental crown?
As with any dental procedure, it’s important to understand the purpose of the restoration and why it’s being used. A dental crown is a popular restoration that our Monrovia, CA, dentists design and fabricate to look just like the crown of a real tooth. The dental crowns we offer here at Healthy Life Dental are made from durable, tooth-colored materials like porcelain, which mimic the appearance of real tooth enamel.
Our goal is to make sure that any restoration you get here in our office meets all of your smile needs. Each crown we make is custom-made to fit your smile. It should look, feel, and function perfectly and restore full stability back into the weak or damaged tooth.
Why are dental crowns used?
This restoration is hollow so that it can cover the entire crown of a damaged tooth. There are many scenarios in which we might recommend a dental crown. A crown provides a protective barrier for the tooth.
Your smile might benefit from a dental crown if you:
- Have a cracked or broken tooth
- Have a weakened or worn tooth
- Have an infected pulp (this will require a root canal)
- Have widespread decay that a filling can’t fully support
- Have a misshapen, severely worn, or discolored tooth
- Need a dental bridge (crowns hold the bridge in place)
- Require a dental implant (the crown will cover the implant)
