A cracked or broken tooth can ruin a beautiful smile almost instantly. Whether you’ve cracked a tooth playing sports, in a slip and fall, or from biting into hard rock candy, your Century City, California dentist can restore its health, appearance, and function with dental crown treatment. At the office of Meredith Levine, DDS, Inc., we specialize in repairing damaged teeth with porcelain crowns.
Even if you’re diligent in caring for your teeth, there’s always the risk of a tooth getting chipped, cracked, or broken during your lifetime. Through the use of dental crowns, Dr. Meredith Levine can repair damaged teeth to restore their appearance, health, and usefulness.
Dental crowns are custom-made caps that are placed over worn-out, damaged teeth to reinforce them and protect them from further damage. The process entails taking impressions of your teeth and gums to provide a blueprint for customizing crowns that closely resemble your natural teeth in size, shape, and color. Once the crowns are ready, we’ll fit and bond them to the teeth that need treatment. The crowns then become a permanent part of these teeth to restore their usefulness. With proper care, porcelain crowns can last 10-15 years, restoring the appearance and function of damaged teeth.
