A dental crown is used in many different types of dental restoration procedures. It is used to cap a repaired tooth or can completely encircle a dental implant. Tooth crowns are most often required when the structural integrity of a tooth is in question which can be caused by large cavities or through trauma. By using a bonding material, your West Hills, CA dental crown dentist attaches the ceramic crown to the tooth or implant and makes it look like a natural tooth by matching it to the nearby teeth.
All ceramic metal-free crowns have many advantages. The appearance is much more natural looking when compared to metal crowns. This is particularly helpful when the tooth being repaired is visible when smiling. Metal crowns can lead the wearer to have sensitivity issues to hot or cold foods since the metal is a conductor. Ceramic, metal-free crowns do not have this problem.
Ceramic is also considered a bio-compatible material. What does that mean? Well, your body is less likely to fight or resist having a ceramic dental crown in your mouth as opposed to a metal crown. Ceramic is considered kind to the natural gum tissue which will allow it to grow back more naturally around a ceramic crown. There is no risk of an allergic reaction as well.
Ceramic crowns may be needed for the following scenarios:

This is THE place to go for your dental needs. You walk in and see their beautiful lobby that has a really big and soothing aquarium. They offer you snacks and drinks and the front desk girls always have a smile on their faces. The rooms are gorgeous! They even have those little cameras that take pictures of your teeth so you can see them (that was helpful because I had a crack on my tooth that I didn’t think it was a big deal until I saw it with the camera, ew!). The doctors are amazing. They didn’t try to sell me any treatment, but told me that their job was to educate me about oral health and my options, so I didn’t feel any pressure to proceed with anything I wasn’t comfortable with. I will come here for the rest of my life!
Just had work done by Dr. Mike Salekian today and was so impressed with how smoothly everything went!!!! I am usually terrified of the dentist (especially the numbing shots) but Dr. Mike was so gentle I honestly didn’t even feel him numbing me. He was very thorough at explaining everything so I felt comfortable the entire time. He is a very compassionate guy and truly cares about his patients. The assistant, Chris, is amazing too!! I highly recommend going to see them for any of your dental needs! You’ll be happy that you did! The front office is very accommodating when it comes to utilizing your insurance and making sure things are good on the financial side.
Recently, I was told I would be seeing a new dentist, Dr. Mike,by the excellent staff at West Hills Smile. After the first visit, I found Dr. Mike incredibly kind and very knowledgeable. We proceed with the treatment plan, and Dr. Mike continuously checked in while he was doing the procedure. Everything went fine, and it felt quick and painless. With the excellent care I received by Dr. Mike and continued support of the already great staff, I recommend this office. In my experience the staff is just as caring and willing to work with you as well. They go above and beyond, and really want to hear from you before a plan is in place, during your visit, and afterward if anything should pop up.
