Porcelain Dental Crowns

Dental Implants

Dental ImplantsDental implants are used to replace missing teeth. They offer a wide range of benefits for patients ranging from improved dental health and function to preserved bone density and smile aesthetics. If you are missing one or more teeth, our El Monte dental implants expert may recommend dental implants.

One of the biggest reasons to replace your lost teeth with dental implants is to maintain bone tissue. After the loss of a tooth, your jawbone and facial bones can begin to deteriorate due to the lack of stimulation. Our expert in dental implants in El Monte can use dental implants to replace teeth, and the evenly distributed bite forces will continue to stimulate and preserve bone tissue while restoring the aesthetics of your smile.

Dental implants also eliminate the need for altering other teeth during the restoration process. A titanium device is implanted into the jaw, and the bone tissue fuses with the device. Our El Monte dental implants expert will then attach the implant to the screw-like device for a tooth that looks just like your own natural tooth. This tooth will also function just like your tooth. You can even clean it as you usually clean your teeth without the need for any special tools, devices or solutions.

Dental Implants El Monte

Our expert in dental implants in El Monte recommends dental implants for many tooth-loss situations. If you have lost one tooth, a single dental implant with a porcelain crown can be used to replace it. Multiple dental implants can be used to support crowns, dental bridges, partial dentures or full dentures. You will enjoy improved chewing ability, improved speech and improved aesthetics. Your bone tissue will be preserved, and your facial muscles will remain intact.

The loss of a single tooth can threaten the health of your remaining teeth. Dental implants can restore your dental health and contribute to healthier oral function. If you are missing one or several teeth, we can help. Contact our El Monte dentist today to learn more or to schedule your dental implants consultation.

Porcelain Dental Crowns

Porcelain dental crowns are tooth-shaped restorations that fit over the entire visible portion of the tooth. They are designed to restore the tooth’s appearance, size, strength and function. Our El Monte dental crowns expert may recommend porcelain dental crowns in several situations, including:

To restore a tooth that is weak, cracked, broken or severely worn

To support a tooth with a large dental filling

To conceal severely discolored or misshapen teeth

To protect and strengthen a tooth that has undergone root canal therapy

To cover a dental implant, which is used to restore missing teeth

To support dental bridges

Our El Monte porcelain crowns expert can match the color of all-porcelain dental crowns to the color of your teeth precisely, and dental porcelain is translucent in the same way that dental enamel is, which allows for a more natural appearance. Porcelain crowns can be an especially good choice for front teeth.

Porcelain Dental Crowns El Monte

If you are a candidate for one or more porcelain dental crowns, our expert in dental crowns in El Monte will begin with a complete oral evaluation. We will examine the tooth and its underlying structures to ensure its overall health. If the damage or decay is close to the internal chambers of the tooth, we may recommend a root canal procedure to ensure a more successful procedure. The tooth will then be prepared, which necessitates the contouring of the enamel for a close, comfortable fit.

After your tooth has been prepared, our expert in porcelain crowns in El Monte will place a temporary porcelain dental crown to protect your tooth as you wait for the lab to complete your final restoration. When your crown is ready, it will be examined for fit and appearance, and your bite will be checked to ensure your comfort. The crown will then be bonded using strong dental cements and cured with a special light. Taking care of your crown requires good dental hygiene and attention to good dental habits, including twice-daily brushing and daily flossing.
