Porcelain Crowns & Caps in Long Beach, CA
BRIGHTENING YOUR SMILE
A crown – also known as a cap – is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface and restores its shape and size. If your tooth can’t be repaired with moderate solutions like fillings, then a crown is applied to protect and strengthen your tooth for long-lasting results.
Porcelain and zirconium crowns are the most popular solution due to how they match the color and texture of your natural teeth, giving you the most attractive smile possible. They are also highly durable and long-lasting, so you can enjoy your beautiful results for years to come.
REASONS FOR PORCELAIN CROWNS
- You have broken or fractured teeth
- You suffer from cavities or tooth decay
- Your fillings are large or fractured
- You want cosmetic enhancement
- Your tooth has undergone a root canal
HOW IT WORKS
After an exam, we’ll take mold impressions to create your custom porcelain crown and a temporary restoration.
While the tooth is numb, the dentist will clean and shape it before applying your temporary filling.
Later, once your new porcelain crown has been created, it will be fitted and placed on your tooth so you can enjoy long-lasting results.
