Dental Crowns in Westlake Village
When a tooth can no longer hold a filling, new advanced hypoallergenic and non-staining materials are now available to fabricate a crown, and place over the affected tooth to restore function and aesthetics. These new materials made of porcelains and zirconium among others, can also be used to replace missing teeth by bridging the adjacent teeth.
A tooth that is broken, damaged, or in general poor condition can be harmful to your health. It can also affect feeling comfortable about your tooth and your self-confidence.
Dental crowns are almost exactly the way they sound – a crown, or cap, for your tooth. Dental crowns help restore a tooth– resulting in a truly aesthetically pleasing appearance.

Reasons for crowns:

Restore Your Smile Today
Crowns also replace severe cases of tooth decay that have resulted in a large amount of tooth loss. Crowns allow dentists to restore form and function to your tooth without needing to perform an extraction. It is always best to save as much real tooth/enamel as possible.
The Dental Crown Placement Process
This process begins with a consult and exam where we develop a plan for you. We take dental impressions to ensure a precise fit for your tooth. We also treat and resolve any decay or infection prior to placement of the crown.
Once the impressions are ready for your tooth, we place the crown for a proper fit. Once your crown is fitted appropriately, you can again be confident about your dental health and your amazing smile.
