Dental Crowns Q&A

What is a dental crown?

A dental crown is a prosthetic device that goes over your existing tooth.

The crown is designed to look and act like a natural tooth and fits in with the alignment of your existing teeth. If cared for properly, a crown can last a lifetime.

Why do I need a dental crown?

Dr. Burnett recommends crowns for the following:

  • To replace teeth weakened by dental work
  • To protect or restore fractured teeth
  • To replace broken teeth
  • To attach a bridge
  • To cover an implant
  • To cover a discolored or misshapen tooth

After reviewing your problem, Dr. Burnett decides whether a crown is the best option for you, always with an eye toward the most natural, long-lasting solution.

How is my tooth prepared for the crown?

Once you and Dr. Burnett decide that a crown is your best option, Dr. Burnett prepares your compromised tooth for the new cap.

In some cases, Dr. Burnett files your tooth down, leaving behind a robust and healthy structure that can support the new crown. Conversely, if there isn’t enough of your tooth left for your crown to attach to it securely, Dr. Burnett may have to beef up the underlying structure with filling material.

How quickly can I get a dental crown?

Los Angeles Dental Arts is equipped with the CEREC® system, which allows Dr. Burnett to produce same-day crowns that fit in perfectly with the rest of your teeth. Here’s how it works:

  • Using advanced 3D color imaging, Dr. Burnett scans your tooth for shape and color
  • Advanced software comes up with the ideal design
  • This design is sent to a machine that creates your crown right in the office
  • Dr. Burnett prepares your tooth for the new crown
  • When it’s finished, Dr. Burnett bonds the new crown into place

Typically, a new crown entails several trips to the dentist, but with his state-of-the-art equipment, Dr. Burnett accomplishes it all in one visit.

Plus, there’s no need to be concerned about the quality of the crown. Dr. Burnett can create the same durable, long lasting prosthetics that off-site, specialty labs produce.
