Los Angeles patients discover the benefits of dental crowns


Restoration of a Natural Tooth, Downtown Dental Los Angeles
Patients in the Los Angeles, California area who are introduced to the idea of placing dental crowns often ask their dentist, "Are dental crowns worth it?"

What is a dental crown?

First, it is important for patients to have a full understanding of the purpose of dental crowns. Dental crowns are restorations that are made of porcelain. They are fabricated to cover a natural tooth and match the smile. The crown is placed over a tooth to offer an extra layer of protection against damage or to restore a tooth that has been cracked, chipped, or weakened. In some cases, crowns are made to be placed over an abutment of a dental implant to act as a false tooth. Crowns are incredibly versatile and are common in general and restorative dentistry.

Who is a candidate for a dental crown?

Most patients are appropriate candidates for the placement of dental crowns. These restorations are made for patients who need strength and restoration of a natural tooth.

How do crowns work with dental implants?

Some dentists may use a dental crown to complete a dental implant. Dental implants are titanium posts that are placed into the bone of the jaw when a tooth is missing. They are then restored in several ways, most commonly with a dental crown for a single tooth. The abutment of the dental implant is covered with the crown, which then becomes the new tooth. Patients are educated on how to care for their restoration and will find that the dental crown over the dental implant is the most advantageous method of tooth replacement available today.

I am so glad I came to Downtown Dental. From the moment I walked into the office I was met with a smile and a warm welcome. During my first visit, a dental plan was made for me and they got to work right away. I have never experienced such attention to detail and such excellent customer service at a dental office. During my root canal procedure and fillings everyone was extremely helpful and constantly making sure I was comfortable. Since then, I am encouraging everyone to check out Downtown Dental, they really are amazing.
