Porcelain crowns serve both a cosmetic and a practical function. Available at our office serving the Los Angeles area, dental crowns or caps are ideal for repairing and reinforcing badly damaged teeth. Made of strong porcelain, they are particularly recommended for patients with teeth that are either already cracked or at high risk of cracking in the future. Unlike veneers, porcelain crowns cover the entire surface area of the tooth, so they are generally reserved for cases in which cosmetic improvements are not the sole concern. That said, your smile can benefit greatly from porcelain crowns. Throughout Los Angeles, Dr Eduard Gutgarts is known for her gentle touch in applying dental crowns, making the procedure as comfortable and pain-free as possible for her patients.
