Crowns are designed to resemble your natural teeth. When a tooth has been damaged or has experienced decay, our cosmetic dentist in Beverly Hills can place a crown over the tooth to restore its function and appearance. Although crowns can be made out of a variety of materials, porcelain is a very popular option among patients. This is most likely due to the fact that porcelain mimics the natural light-reflecting properties of dental enamel, so it blends in perfectly with the rest of your smile.
With a porcelain crown, your tooth will stay radiant for years to come because porcelain is a non-porous substance. This means that stains will not become attached to the surface of the crown, meaning it will stay the same color for years. If you are having a crown placed, our expert in porcelain crowns in Beverly Hills will sometimes suggest getting a teeth whitening treatment performed beforehand so that your natural teeth will be at their brightest. The dentist can then design the crown to match your newly bright teeth. This makes it so that if you ever want another teeth whitening treatment in the future, your teeth will match the crown.
Following placement of the crown, your dentist will give you instructions on how to keep you crown in great shape.
