Dental Crowns in Dallas-Fort Worth, TX
Affordable Dental Crowns in Arlington, TX
Over time, your teeth may be damaged. This can happen for a multitude of reasons, such as tooth decay, trauma, or long-term use. The shape and size of your teeth might change throughout time. Dental crowns are tooth-shaped “caps” that are placed on top of your natural tooth.
The crown improves the tooth’s shape, size, strength, and appearance. A dental crown is necessary to protect a tooth that has been significantly injured or impaired.
The crown is made out of either porcelain or ceramic and is meant to last for many years. We offer CEREC crowns as well, which are made right here in the office. CEREC crowns don’t require a second appointment to place the permanent restoration.
When are Dental Crowns Needed?
Crowns are usually needed when a tooth is cracked, damaged, chipped, or shattered. This might occur as a result of an injury or through regular use over time.
Teeth that have a lot of filling may need to be crowned at some point. Similarly, if you’ve recently had a root canal, we strongly advise crowning the tooth to prevent it from fracturing.
Crowns are able to restore the look of the tooth while improving functionality. They are great solutions for long lasting results to keep your teeth and gums healthy and for you to have a confident smile.
Candidates for a Crown
Dental crowns are ideal for any patient who requires teeth restoration. We will perform an exam to determine if and when a crown may need to be placed.
X-rays can help us to identify any issues with cracks or deep breaks that would benefit from a crown. You can choose between porcelain, ceramic, or CEREC crowns in our office.
If you have a damaged or decayed tooth, get in touch with our office to schedule your appointment and see if dental crowns are the right choice for you.
Dental Crown Procedure
The damaged tooth is first filed down to form a small foundation for the crown. The permanent crown is made using impressions taken. You’ll need to return for a second appointment to have the permanent crown set. Digital impressions taken in the office for CEREC crowns allow us to construct the permanent crown while you wait. Because the treatment is done while you wait comfortably in the office, CEREC technology eliminates the need for a second or even third session. The crown will last for years, if not decades, before we recommend replacing it with a whole new restoration.
