Just because you need a crown, doesn’t mean you must endure an all-metal option that stands out when you smile. Instead, your Woodland Hills, CA, dentist may create a full or partial crown using a variety of lifelike and biocompatible materials. In today’s blog, we’re going to look at how we repair smiles with restorations that look completely natural, helping you enjoy an attractive, healthy, and functional smile once more!
Creating Biomimetic Restorations
We strive to offer repair that not only provides durable restoration and dependable chewing surfaces, but also ensures a lifelike appearance as well. For the front-facing teeth, we may use all-porcelain, as porcelain mimics the appearance of translucent tooth enamel and can be shaded to match the color of your smile. For the side and rear teeth, which must absorb greater bite forces on a daily basis, we may opt for stronger versions, such as zirconia and porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM), which still boasts a natural-looking appearance. These materials are designed to last for years to come, possibly decades, and return function and health to your smile once again. They also boast esthetically-pleasing appearances too, as we want to make sure you not only enjoy improved oral health, but feel confident when you smile as well!
A crown covers everything visible, from the gum line up, and can address a wide array of cosmetic and restorative concerns. For example, we can treat advanced cavities or infections, repair chips and cracks, lengthen worn-down teeth, and address malformed portions of your smile. We also help with tooth replacement, offering dental bridges and restorations for dental implants that look natural and provide secure solutions for people with one or more missing teeth.
Inlays and Onlays
Sometimes, your tooth needs more than a filling, but not necessarily a full crown. In these situations, we may opt for a partial, also known as an inlay or onlay. The inlay fits in between the cusps on top of each tooth, and the onlay fits over the cusps. Each one is made from porcelain, and designed to not only look natural, but provide durable repairs too.
