Porcelain Crowns Sherman Oaks
Dental crowns are a covering, or cap, for a damaged tooth. When a tooth has decayed to the point that it cannot hold a filling, a dental crown may be recommended. Dental crowns protect the sensitive nerves of damaged teeth and also prevent a cracked tooth from splitting away. Dental crowns fit snugly over the teeth at the gumline, and look and act just like natural teeth.
Dr. Bjornbak offers beautiful porcelain crowns that provide an attractive alternative to traditional dental crowns made of metal. The state-of-the-art porcelain used for these innovative porcelain crowns is designed to look and feel like tooth enamel.

What is a Dental Bridge?
Dental bridges are very similar to dental crowns in that they are artificial teeth used to repair, restore or replace natural a natural tooth crown(s). Dental bridges, however, are a series of connected dental crowns which are affixed to each other. The dental crown on each end of the dental bridge is connected to the teeth adjacent to a gap in a smile. The middle tooth crown or teeth in dental bridges then “bridge” the gap between the two teeth the bridge is attached to.
Both dental crowns (tooth crown) and dental bridges are a fantastic way to restore your smile to its former glory. Dr. Bjornbak will work with you to develop a perfect dental crown or dental bridge solution. Call to schedule a visit today!
