Dental crowns put the finishing touch on Los Angeles smiles

crowns from Dr. Don Mungcal in Los Angeles

Your smile is a charming expression of what makes you uniquely YOU. Even a single missing or flawed tooth detracts from the impression it makes on others. Crowns are a versatile way to solve many dental issues. Dr. Don Mungcal explains some of the ways he uses crowns for the benefit of his Los Angeles area patients.

When it’s all about the look

Crowns have long been a staple of cosmetic dentistry. This cap of lustrous porcelain is ideal for:

  • A tooth that has unusual shape, or is too small or large to blend with the smile.
  • A worn-down tooth.
  • A cracked or broken-off tooth.
  • A silver-colored filling.
  • Old stained dental work.
  • Deep discoloration that does not respond to bleaching.


A healthy smile radiates beauty

Dental crowns are also an important restorative dentistry technique. Dr. Mungcal may recommend a crown for an area of decay that is too large to support a tooth-colored filling. Root canal therapy removes blood supply from tooth structure. This can leave the tooth brittle and subject to breakage. A strong porcelain crown protects it.

A dental implant is the preferred method of replacing a missing tooth. The implant replaces the tooth root, becoming fused to jawbone. It is finished with a dental crown to restore chewing function and smile appearance.

Individualized approach

Because your smile isn’t like anyone else’s, Dr. Mungcal offers options in dental crowns. He recommends the best type of crown for the position in your mouth, oral and lifestyle habits, and appearance goals.

In many cases, he can prepare the tooth, design the crown, and create it with CEREC technology, in just one visit. In some cases, he works with a professional dental laboratory for fabrication of all porcelain or porcelain fused to metal crown.
