Dental Crowns & Bridges in Los Angeles
High-quality dental crowns and bridges from River Dentistry will help restore function and appearance of a damaged or missing teeth as well as protect them or the gum area from further damage.
Protect Your Damaged Teeth with Porcelain Dental Crowns
Dental crowns may help if you have a broken or fractured tooth, have a cavity that is just too big for a filling, or if you had a root canal. Often, porcelain dental crowns may also be used as part of a smile make-over to give teeth a more beautiful uniform appearance or to replace an old worn-out or low quality crown.
Dental crowns can be made of gold, porcelain-fused-to-metal, or all-porcelain. Gold and porcelain-fused crowns are durable and strong enough to protect back teeth. All-porcelain crowns can be used for aesthetic front teeth restorations.
Dr. Charles Huang will carefully evaluate your dental health and history to determine if dental crowns are your best solution. If so, we will anesthetize the area to make sure that the procedure is virtually painless.
Then teeth will be shaped to hold the dental crowns securely. We will take molds of your teeth and send them to a lab, so that the lab could fabricate your high-quality porcelain dental crowns to our exact specifications. In the meantime, we will install temporary crowns so that the teeth are protected and look and feel natural. During the next appointment, we will remove the temporary crowns and cement the permanent porcelain dental crowns into place.
Dental Bridges Restore Function of Missing Teeth
In more severe cases, Dr. Charles Huang may recommend dental bridges to replace missing teeth. Porcelain dental crowns go on the teeth on either side of the space, while the bridge connects them right in the middle and holds an artificial tooth to fill the gap.
Apply the same home care to your porcelain dental crowns and bridges as you do your natural teeth. Brush and floss daily as well as visit your cosmetic dentist for regular dental check-ups.

I recently moved to LA and was looking for a dentist. The Yelp reviews were 100% positive, so I had to check it out. From the very beginning each staff member was warm and friendly... and proceeded to do a great job. These guys are really great. Amazing customer service and genuine concern. A very satisfied customer 🙂 (Yelp Review)
What a find! Needed a dentist in my area that was open on Saturday and, to my great pleasure, I found River Dentistry. I went in because of a chipped front tooth and came out with a fresh clean smile. Dr. Huang is amazing with his work and also with the care and attention he provides [to] his patients. (Yelp Review)
