crownA porcelain crown (also known as a porcelain cap) is a dental restoration that entirely encloses the tooth in order to restore it to an ideal size and shape. At Toluca Dental Care, our dentists provide porcelain crowns that are fused to metal. These metal shells have been covered with a layer of porcelain, creating a strong and aesthetically pleasing result. We also use the innovative Lava™ crowns to restore damaged or decayed teeth. Lava™ crowns are created with zirconia, a durable tooth-colored material, and contain no metal, so you don’t ever have to worry about the appearance of your smile. During your consultation with Dr. Pema and Dr. Tanavoli, you will discuss which type of dental crown in Toluca Lake, California, is right for you.
