Crowns Dental Los Angeles


Perhaps you have a large cavity filling or maybe a tooth that had a root canal. Maybe your tooth is discolored, and you want to improve its appearance, but a Veneer wasn’t the right choice for you. Maybe you took a bite of an olive pit a few months ago, and the tooth has never felt the same. I think it’s time to consider dental crowns in Los Angeles!

Porcelain Crowns Los Angeles


Advances in the strength and appearance of porcelain crowns have made them the leading choice in restoring damaged teeth to their former splendor. A tooth that has been damaged by a root canal, grinding, decay or fracture is likely to break from the stress of daily use. But a doctor-prescribed porcelain crown strengthens your tooth by providing 360 degrees of coverage.

What does a porcelain crown do?

Crowns are full-coverage restorations that are used to cover a tooth that is likely to break or is too damaged to be corrected with a traditional filling. When you receive a crown, you will notice it effectively improves your tooth condition by:


2 appointments

First appointment:

At your first appointment at Dentalogics in Los Angeles, we will administer full local anesthesia for the tooth being treated. Dr. Gabi will then prepare the tooth conservatively (1.5 to 2mm to be exact!) to create room for the porcelain crown.

After careful assessment of the shape and contour, a 3d scan or impression of the affected tooth will be taken. This putty will allow the lab ceramist to create and calibrate a porcelain crown that looks and feels like your natural tooth.

A temporary crown is created, polished, and cemented. During the next two weeks, you’ll want to avoid sticky foods near the treated tooth, so the temporary crown stays put. If the temporary crown dislodges, try to replace it as fast as possible, and come visit us at our office in Los Angeles if you can’t get it back in. The purpose of temporary crowns is to protect you from sensitivity and keep the gums from rolling over the prepared margins of the tooth.

Second appointment:

During your second visit, the temporary crown will be removed, and the final porcelain crown will be tried in and examined for perfection. We will take a dental X-ray to ensure quality fit and aesthetic approval. An adhesive is then applied to the tooth, and a cement will be loaded onto the interior of the porcelain crown. Any excess cement will be removed. You’ll be provided with all the necessary instructions to take proper care of your new crown!

All hail to the queen…or KING!
