Replacing Dental Crowns

Published Date

Dental crowns are a restorative solution for damaged or decayed teeth. These tooth-shaped caps are placed over a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and appearance. While dental crowns are durable, they may need to be replaced over time due to wear and tear or other issues. Our team specializes in replacing dental crowns to ensure our patients maintain healthy and beautiful smiles in Los Angeles and Larchmont.

Assessment and Consultation

If you believe your dental crown needs a replacement, schedule an appointment with Dr. Shervin Louie for a thorough evaluation. During your consultation, we’ll assess the condition of your crown and discuss your treatment options.


Before replacing the crown, the tooth is prepared by removing the existing crown and any decay or damaged material. This process may involve numbing the area to ensure your comfort.

Once the tooth is prepared, an impression of the area will be taken to create a custom-made crown that fits perfectly with your bite and surrounding teeth.

Temporary Crown

While your permanent crown is being fabricated, a temporary crown will be placed to protect the tooth as well.

New Crown Placement

Once your new crown is ready, you’ll return to our office for its placement. Our team will ensure the crown fits accurately and comfortably before permanently bonding it to the tooth.

Additional Adjustments

We’ll make any necessary adjustments to ensure your bite is aligned correctly and that the crown looks natural alongside your other teeth.

Replacing a dental crown is a straightforward procedure that can significantly improve the function and appearance of your smile. If you’re experiencing discomfort or notice signs of damage to your crown, don’t hesitate to contact Shervin Louie, DDS, for expert care at our Los Angeles and Larchmont office.
