Veneers, Crowns, and Bridges: Restorative Dentistry in Los Angeles
Restorative dentistry at the Los Angeles practice of Dr. Alex Aguil aims to repair damaged teeth while restoring a patient’s smile to its beautiful best.
Restorative treatments such as veneers, dental implants, all-porcelain crowns, and bridges not only restore structural integrity to teeth that have been damaged by infection, decay, or breakage, they also enhance the appearance of the patient’s smile. All dental restorations are fabricated using the strongest, most durable, and most natural-looking materials.
If you’re in need of restorative dentistry in Los Angeles, Dr. Aguil may recommend one of these treatments:
For chipped, cooked, oddly-shaped, or discolored teeth, dental veneers are a simple and effective treatment with excellent results. A thin layer of porcelain or composite material is fitted over the front of the teeth to create a beautiful and natural-looking smile. This popular cosmetic and restorative dentistry procedure can be completed in as few as 3 visits.
Porcelain Crowns That Last
If Dr. Aguil recommends crowns for your care plan, he will provide the most natural-looking and long-lasting tooth structures made of all-porcelain ceramic zirconium. The best crowns fit exquisitely into your natural smile, perfectly matching the surrounding teeth. Dr. Aguil never uses metal in his crowns and takes utmost care using only the finest materials. With the strongest and most high-quality porcelain that modern dentistry has to offer, Dr. Aguil can achieve more control over the shape and color of your results.
What to Expect With Crowns
The process for installing a porcelain crown takes about two weeks. For optimal dental health and preferred aesthetics, Dr. Aguil carefully takes impressions of your mouth, prepares the area, and sends his designs to his most trusted laboratories. Once a crown structure is exquisitely crafted, Dr. Aguil expertly delivers the final results—ensuring years of dazzling smiles.
Implants vs. Bridges
Crowns can be used in several ways, depending on the tooth affected and the structure of the surrounding teeth. The two most common options are dental implants or dental bridges. Dr. Aguil’s decades of experience and knowledge of the most up-to-date techniques and technology allow him to guide you through your decision process—explaining which treatment option is best for enhancing the shape, function, and beauty of your smile.

In cases when a crown can be bonded to the surrounding teeth, a dental bridge is the most natural-looking and minimally invasive solution to replace a missing tooth or multiple teeth. Permanent bridges are intended to remain in the mouth at all times, while removable bridges can be taken out by the wearer.
You might choose a dental bridge to help restore the shape of your face, distribute pressure evenly throughout your mouth, or even improve annunciation. With a complete set of pearly whites, your overall oral health can instantly and dramatically improve.
Dental implants are another strong and reliable option for replacing an entire tooth. With implants, a titanium implant post is surgically inserted into the bone, with a customized ceramic crown mounted on top. Dr. Aguil only works with top oral surgeons in the area to provide life-lasting results.
What to Expect With Implants
We recommend a consultation with a trusted oral surgeon when patients choose to pursue implants. Dr. Aguil partners with experienced oral surgeons to prepare the gums and insert titanium tooth roots for the permanent crown. They then place a healing cap in the area until Dr. Aguil has prepared a permanent crown.
After a few months of healing from the implant procedure, when the implants have had enough time to fuse with the patient’s jawbone, the patient will be ready for crown placement at Exquisite Dentistry. In this part of the process, Dr. Aguil will painlessly remove the surgery healing cap and design a porcelain crown to attach. Once the crown is installed, patients will be able to enjoy their complete new smile for years.
While crowns can cover a larger tooth area, Dr. Aguil may also recommend porcelain veneers when smaller portions of teeth need to be improved. For more significant structural changes, a combination of dental crowns and veneers might also be suggested for a complete cosmetic smile makeover. Titanium implants can hold crowns, and they can also hold bridges, or even a full set of dentures.
