You will notice right away that as a cosmetic and restorative dentist, Dr. Martinez is an artist who uses her talent to create beautiful restorations. By combining the science of dentistry with her artistic touch, Dr. Martinez crafts strong, natural-looking dental crowns Santa Barbara patients are proud of.
Crowns give back strength, function, and aesthetic appearance to a damaged or missing tooth. There are several different materials that can be used to create a crown, including metal, porcelain, a combination of the two, and other very strong tooth-colored materials such as zirconia and lithium disilicate. If Dr. Martinez determines that the best way to repair your tooth is with a dental crown, she’ll take the time to carefully discuss your options and make recommendations for materials that will look, function, and feel the best for your smile.
