Dental crowns are an excellent option to restore damaged or unattractive teeth. Earl Bercovitch, DDS, offers same-day dental crowns at his practice in Beverly Hills, California. If you live in Los Angeles and want expert dental care, including crowns, call the office or schedule a consultation online today. As Dr. Bercovitch says, “You’re wearing the smile we gave you.”
A dental crown is a custom-designed ceramic cap that covers one of your teeth. Dental crowns both cover and protect damaged or weakened teeth and enhance the appearance of your smile. Dr. Bercovitch uses CEREC technology to custom design your crown so it blends in with your teeth for a natural appearance.
Dr. Bercovitch might recommend a crown for several reasons. For example, if you have a root canal, he might place a crown over your treated tooth to protect it and prevent future decay or damage. He also uses crowns to cover large surface fillings or broken teeth.
Dr. Bercovitch also uses dental crowns to cover imperfections, including:
Whether you need a dental crown for restorative or cosmetic purposes, you can count on expert dental treatments from Dr. Bercovitch and his team.
Dr. Bercovitch uses CEREC technology to provide dental crowns in a single visit. You don’t need to mess around with impressions or temporary crowns, and you don’t need to find time in your busy schedule to come back for a second visit.
After thoroughly numbing your mouth, he prepares your tooth for the crown by removing part of the outer layer. This allows the crown to fit over your tooth and sit flush against your other teeth.
Using the CEREC equipment, he digitally scans your tooth and the surrounding area and designs your dental crown. Finally, he uses his in-office milling equipment to make your dental crown while you wait, usually within an hour.
When your crown is ready, Dr. Bercovitch places it on to your tooth and checks the fit and your bite — the way your teeth come together when you close your mouth — before permanently bonding it to your tooth.
Caring for dental crowns is easy. You brush and floss them just like natural teeth. While crowns are resistant to decay and discoloration, you still need to have routine dental check-ups so Dr. Bercovitch can monitor your overall dental health and keep any remaining natural teeth healthy.
