The team of biological professionals at Dental Health and Wellness Beverly Hills is pleased to offer non-metal crowns, inlays and onlays for healthy, attractive smiles in southern CA.
What is a dental crown, inlay or onlay?
A porcelain piece that covers the entire or partial portion of a prepared tooth. Dental crowns have many applications:
- Cosmetic enhancement of a tooth that has unusual shape or stubborn discoloration.
- Restore function of a broken tooth or one with a small or large area of decay.
- Protect a tooth that has had root canal therapy.
- Complete a dental implant restoration.
- Anchor a dental bridge in place.
Types of crowns
Throughout history, dental crowns have been made of many materials. Today, our dentists use the best biocompatible choices:
- Zirconia – A durable option for posterior teeth, that reduces plaque accumulation around the teeth.
- Porcelain Layered Zirconia – a more esthetic option, great for anterior teeth
- Emax – a durable lithium desilicated ceramic, that allows us to imitate the natural beauty of tooth structure
Solving dental crown problems
Our non-metal crowns are precision milled from a solid block of zirconium oxide. This dental crown material solves many of the problems associated with other types. It looks completely natural, mimicking the translucency and light-reflecting qualities of tooth enamel. Plus, there is no dark line where the crown meets the gum tissue.
Zirconia crowns carry no chance of allergy, metal reactivity or galvanic current in the mouth. Risk of chipping or breakage is less than a porcelain crown with a metal core. Because the crown is made from exacting images and measurements taken with a 3D digital impression scanner, the fit is meticulous. This reduces the risk of irritation at the gum line that could lead to periodontal disease or tooth decay. Zirconia is strong enough for molar restorations that take a great deal of bite force.

Been researching a place to get the Air-Flow teeth cleaning near Beverly Hills and found Beverly Hills Dental Health and Wellness.
This is the very first time i tried the air flow polishing method and found that it is 100% better and faster than traditional polishing.
My teeth felt smoother and appeared whiter. Sandra, my hygienist at the office did a fantastic job. By the way, the dental chair gives you a massage while you are getting your teeth cleaned.
The staff is super friendly. I highly recommend this place!
I don't even know where to begin. This is an exceptional dental office that utilizes methods and equipment in a holistic manner that one can't find anywhere else. From the beginning, Leeshane answered all of my questions and explained the procedure from start to finish. She really eased my fears about everything which pushed me to finally schedule an appointment that I had been putting off. Not only was she professional, but also personable. I felt her positive energy as soon as she answered the phone. It was like I had known her for years! Leeshane really went above and beyond for me. Contact her for any questions or to schedule an appointment. The dentists and staff do an excellent job. I highly recommend!
The office staff is extremely friendly and helpful, Dr. Kanter is very knowledgeable and personable. She did a 3D scan which identified problems areas that are impossible to detect with the standard X-ray. Very happy with my visit and will be returning to the office and following up with a review post-procedure.
