The Los Angeles Experts on Dental Crowns
Crowns are used to restore the functionality and beauty of your teeth. Exquisite Dentistry and Dr. Aguil with his team can provide you with crowns made of materials that look nearly identical to your natural teeth. A great crown will look like a natural part of your smile.
Dental crowns can be made of a number of materials like gold or silver alloy, but are often comprised of a porcelain-like substance. We prefer to use all-porcelain crowns made from zirconium. We believe this is the best material because of its strength, superior color-matching qualities, and its transparent properties, which will closely match the natural teeth around it.

Why Would I Need a Dental Crown?
- Restoring the tooth after root canal therapy
- Fitting bridges
- Other dental implants
- Partial dentures
- Replacing teeth damaged by accidents
- Some people even choose to get crowns due to discoloration of their teeth or other aesthetic reasons.
Crowns are usually chosen over veneers when a large area of the tooth needs to be covered. Veneers are generally used when smaller portions of the teeth need to be improved. Dental crowns and veneers may also be used for a cosmetic “smile makeover” for their aesthetic beauty.
Your tooth may have been repaired with a filling years ago. At that time, parts of the tooth were drilled out and restored with a filling. Over time, the structure of the tooth weakens and may crack. This can allow cavities to form inside the tooth, causing further damage. If decay infects the pulp and nerve structure of the tooth, your dentist may need to perform a root canal procedure. In many cases following root canal therapy, the tooth needs to be restored for proper dental health and to maintain a beautiful Hollywood smile.
How Are Crowns Place On My Teeth?
The tooth, or teeth, will be sculpted to prepare for the dental crown, and impressions of the new tooth structure will be taken by your dentist. This ensures that the crown will fit perfectly, feel comfortable, and last for many years. Once the impressions are complete, your dentist will place a temporary “crown” on the tooth to protect it.
Exquisite Dentistry sends the impressions to one of the best laboratories in Los Angeles for dental crown fabrication. The careful process for creating your new crown takes about two weeks. After the crown is complete and ready to be placed, it will be fitted over your tooth and then permanently sealed with an advanced dental material. Your new crown should give you many years of beautiful, healthy smiles brightening up Beverly Hills.
Maintaining Your Dental Health
With proper dental care, crowns can last a very long time. Many of our West Hollywood dental crown patients never need a replacement. It is not guaranteed that your crown will last forever, but a high-quality crown should last many years. Proper brushing, flossing, and the quality of the dental work provided by your dentist all play factors in the care and longevity of your crowns.
But even the best restorations are not as strong as natural teeth, and special care should be taken after any restoration. By scheduling regular exams with your dentist, you can catch many problems before they become serious. In fact, your teeth may not need a crown if you visit your dentist at least twice a year for regular check-ups and cleanings.
