Fillings

Fillings Sherman Oaks

Dental Crowns

Dental Crowns in Sherman Oaks

A dental crown is essentially a protective coating, such as a cap, that is put over or around a tooth to save it after damage or decay has occurred. This can be done in an effort to reconstruct a broken tooth.

Many restorations are fabricated using metal lining covered with porcelain. These types of crowns are used because they are cheap and easy to place in the mouth. They are opaque or flat looking because they do not let light pass through as a natural tooth does. There is often dark or gray line next to the gum-line. We provide exclusively all porcelain-bonded restorations. When property placed they are as strong, if not stronger then the porcelain covered metal crowns. Notice the appearance of natural tooth gain.

 

Dental Bridges

A bridge is a custom device anchored to neighboring teeth that replaces one or more missing teeth. When a lost teeth is replaced with bridgework, the teeth on either side of the missing one are prepared as crowns to serve as abutments to hold the prosthetic (replacement) tooth in place. Crowns and bridges are most commonly prepared form high quality materials such as semiprecious or precious metals, porcelain, or a fused combination of the two. Aesthetics, function, and tissue compatibility are considered when selecting the material most suitable for you.
