Dental crowns are caps that can be made out of porcelain, zirconia, or gold. They cover and protect damaged or decayed part of the tooth. Whether large or small, a crown is molded to fit over the tooth and resembles its natural enamel. Crowns are used to save and restore the tooth’s appearance and protect your remaining healthy teeth from becoming damaged in any way. Dental Line specializes in all dental work needs, our dentist has a lot of experience placing crowns and managing patients who already have them. Located on Ventura Blvd, Encino, Los Angeles, CA, we service the following areas: Sherman Oaks, Tarzana, Woodland Hills, Calabasas, and Reseda.

A crown is a cover that fits over your natural tooth and protects it from decay and damage. Crowns are also used to restore strength and function of damaged teeth.

Crowns are available in many materials, including gold, porcelain, and zirconia. The material used for your crown will depend on several factors, such as your biocompatibility with crown material as well as your financial circumstances.

During a crown procedure, our dentist takes an impression of your damaged tooth or teeth and sends it to a dental lab. A dental lab technician creates a custom-fit crown for you using porcelain, zirconia, or other materials. The permanent crowns are then attached to your existing tooth by cementing it or placing screws or posts in the remaining tooth structure. This process can take anywhere from one hour to several hours, depending on the crown size and how much work needs to be done.

Porcelain is easy to clean and stain-resistant — it looks great for years! Porcelain crowns can be shaped to mimic your natural tooth shape, so you won’t feel like you’re wearing something foreign in your mouth. They’re also durable — if properly cared for, porcelain crowns will last many years without needing replacement. There are several crowns, but porcelain is the best option if you can afford it.

Porcelain crowns can provide several benefits to your smile, including:

Aesthetic enhancement: Porcelain crowns can improve the appearance of your tooth and help to restore it to its natural form. Porcelain is the most popular material for dental crowns because it mimics the look and feel of natural enamel.

Durability: Dental crowns are designed to last for years, so you don’t have to worry about them breaking or falling off. When properly cared for, porcelain crowns can last anywhere from 10 to 20 years before replacement.

Protection: Dental crowns protect damaged teeth from further decay, which may require additional treatment such as root canal therapy or extraction.

Contact Us
The porcelain crown procedure is usually done in two visits. The first visit involves taking an impression of your teeth and sending it to the lab so they can mold your tooth. This initial visit usually takes about an hour and a half. Before you leave the first appointment, the dentist will place a temporary crown on your tooth to protect it while you wait for the permanent crown. The impression will then be sent away for processing and be returned about two weeks later. At the second visit, the dentist will remove the temporary crown on your tooth before putting on the permanent porcelain crown fixture. This appointment is faster than the first, usually about half an hour. Once everything fits together, the final product will be cemented onto your tooth using dental cement.

Crowns can be made out of porcelain or metal. Porcelain is stronger than a metal crown but more expensive. The color of porcelain will match your natural teeth, while a metal crown cannot match your color exactly.

The cost of a porcelain crown largely depends on the type of material used to create the crown. Porcelain crowns are often more expensive than all-ceramic or metal-free crowns. The cost of porcelain dental crowns may be $800 to $3,000. The treatment may also be more expensive if you need additional work with the crown. For example, if you need root canal therapy before having a crown placed, that will add to the overall cost of your treatment.

One answer is that it depends on where you live and what type of crown you need: metal-ceramic crowns, porcelain crowns, zirconia crowns, emax crowns or lithium disilicate crowns. There are often additional needs to improve your oral health prior to placing your crown. Out-of-pocket costs are highly dependent on your insurance coverage. What material will your crown be made of? Most crowns in the Dental Line are made of porcelain or zirconia. There will be at least two appointments totaling two and a half hours or more. Which tooth/teeth need caps? Teeth that extensive damage due to caries or other sources, in which conventional restorations are contraindicated.

Contact Us

Metal crowns are your best option if you need a dental crown but don’t have insurance. They’re affordable and last for many years if properly cared for. Metal-crown restorations are often referred to as “all-metal crowns” or “metal-ceramic crowns” because they include metal and ceramic materials in their construction. Metal-ceramic dental restorations are durable and can last up to 20 years or more with proper care and maintenance.

A crown is a covering for a tooth made from porcelain or zirconia that replaces the enamel portion of your teeth. Since crowns are typically placed on teeth that have extensive damage due to disease or some other processes, it is not uncommon to see infected root canals on teeth that need crowns. Not all teeth that need crowns require a root canal treatment, but all teeth that need crowns and have an infected pulp (pulp is a living part of the tooth) must receive a root canal treatment.

Contact Us
A root canal is a dental procedure used to treat infection and inflammation of a tooth’s pulp. A dentist will remove the pulp, which contains blood vessels and nerves, from the tooth and replace it with a material that seals off the inside of the tooth. A crown may be placed on top of root canal treatment if significant portions of enamel are damaged or missing, however a crown doesn’t always follow root canal treatment.

The first line of defense against dental disease is good oral hygiene. But even with diligence, you can still need dental work from time to time. We all prefer to keep our natural teeth, but when the damage has already been done we replace damaged tissues with materials that mimic them. There are many reasons to consider getting dental crowns. To know if they are right for you, you first need to know what they are and what they do.

Make sure to get the information necessary before making this choice, as there is nothing more important to your oral health than a healthy smile. Search for dental crowns near me, and if you are in the vicinity of the Dental Line, we can help you make the most appropriate decision for your specific needs.
