Beverly Hills Cosmetic Dentist Describes Why Porcelain Crowns are Favored


Jean PR MaddahiPorcelain crowns are the favored replacement for teeth that have suffered a considerable amount of damage in order to restore it to its normal shape and size. A crown can make your tooth stronger and improve its appearance. Dr. Kourosh Maddahi, Beverly Hills cosmetic dentist, is a top choice for crown work on the West Side. His dentistry results in beautiful, natural smiles.

Dental crowns can be used to cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t enough of the original tooth left. A crown is also used to attach a bridge, protect a weak tooth from breaking or restore one that’s already broken. A crown is a good solution to cover teeth that are discolored or badly shaped. It’s also used to complete a dental implant.

Tooth damage is usually easy to see in the mirror or to feel with the tongue, when caused by decay or breakage. Also there could be damage that is not so evident. An internal weakening can occur when a tooth is drilled out to handle a big cavity or for a root canal treatment.

On occasion a decision may need to be made between a filling and a crown (also called dental caps or tooth caps). Often a crown is the better choice as crowns are usually stronger, last longer, provide better tooth protection and offer a more aesthetic cosmetic appearance.


Dr. Maddahi prefers porcelain crowns to gold or other choices. Of course, it’s more natural looking and because they are translucent, just like a natural tooth, they are much more beautiful looking.

At Dr. Maddahi’s Beverly Hills office, he offers the CEREC – a cutting edge same-day porcelain crown system 3D CAD/CAM (Three Dimensional Computer-aided Design and Computer-aided Manufacturing) system.

This CEREC restoration system gives beautiful, natural all-ceramic restorations crowns, onlays and inlays.”, explains Kourosh Maddahi, DDS. Because you are sitting right there with the tooth on the computer and sculpting the tooth from that vantage point, we actually get a better fit than most lab work. The margins are perfectly sculpted.”

The CEREC procedure is amazingly simple and fast. Initially the tooth is prepared for restoration as it would be for other dental procedures. This may include removal of any weak tissue or decay.

Once prepared, a digital optical impression of the tooth is taken with a specialized digital camera which will photograph the tooth and mouth. The CEREC system is sent the impression and converts the information into a virtual 3D model of the tooth. Within just a few minutes the restoration is sent to the milling machine, which is situated in his office, and the replacement crown, onlay or inlay is rapidly sculpted.

It only takes ten or twenty minutes using the CEREC for the replacement to be ready! Dr. Maddahi then confirms a perfect fit and bite and permanently bonds the porcelain crown into place.
