Beverly Hills Porcelain Dental Crowns
Here at Rodney Raanan we strive to apply an artistic touch and a scientific approach to even the most common dental procedures.
WHAT ARE DENTAL CROWNS?
A dental crown (sometimes called a cap) is a covering that completely encases the tooth, restoring it to its original size and shape — or in the case of cosmetic enhancements, enhancing its size and shape. Our Beverly Hills dental crowns strengthen and protect tooth structure that cannot be restored by more conservative treatments, such as fillings, inlays or onlays.
Several types of dental crowns are available. Here at Rodney Raanan, we only use porcelain dental crowns, because these most closely match the natural color of your teeth. Porcelain crowns are also quite durable, and with reasonable care, they can last many for years. As with natural teeth, and any type of dental restoration for that matter, porcelain crowns, and caps require proper maintenance in the form of brushing and flossing. Our porcelain crowns are constructed to accurately match the size, shape, and color of your own natural teeth, thereby giving you a beautiful, long-lasting smile.
WHAT ARE SOME OF THE REASONS TO CHOOSE DENTAL CROWNS?
When you come to us for your consultation for dental crowns Beverly Hills cosmetic dentists, Dr. Rodney or Dr. Raanan, will perform a full assessment and find out if porcelain crowns are right for you. Porcelain crowns are often indicated in the following cases:
- Decayed teeth
- Large fillings
- Broken or fractured teeth
- canal surgery
- Fractured fillings
- Cosmetic enhancement
- Teeth that need root canal surgery
WHAT DOES PLACING A CROWN INVOLVE
The procedure for placing dental crowns will usually require two appointments, however, we do provide high tech solutions that allow us to do same-day crowns for some cases.
In a typical case, your first appointment will involve taking several very precise impressions of your teeth. These will be used to fabricate your custom porcelain crowns. A temporary crown will also be formed using a mold. The temporary crown will remain on your tooth until your new, permanent dental crown is fabricated by our Master Dental Ceramist. When it comes time to place your crown, the tooth and adjacent gum are anesthetized. While the area is numb, Dr. Rodney or Dr. Raanan will prepare the tooth, removing any decay and shaping the surface to facilitate the new crown.
When these preparations are completed, the temporary crown will be secured in place with temporary cement, and your bite will be checked to ensure that your teeth are meeting properly. During your second appointment, the temporary crown is removed, and the tooth is thoroughly cleaned.
When all preparations are complete, Dr.Rodney or Dr. Raanan will place your new dental crown, onlay, or inlay. They will carefully evaluate the spacing and bite, and will then secure it with a “permanent” adhesive. Before your treatment is completed, you will receive care instructions, and you will be encouraged to schedule regular dental visits to routinely maintain your teeth and to verify the health of your new restorations.
IS IT PAINFUL TO HAVE DENTAL CROWN’S PLACED?
Under Dr. Rodney and Dr. Raanan’s care, having dental crowns placed is not painful. As a patient, you will not experience any discomfort while the tooth is being prepared. Dr. Rodney and Dr. Raanan offer various anesthesia techniques to ensure a painless experience. With extensive training, skill, and experience, our Beverly Hills dental crown team will ensure you are relaxed and comfortable through-out the entire procedure.
