Visit our Cosmetic Dentistry Office for Dental Crowns

Dental CrownsVisit our cosmetic dentistry office for dental crowns that will preserve the functionality and appearance of your teeth. Our crowns protect your teeth from decay and future damage with a natural-looking appearance. To learn more about how our dental crowns can help you, call our office at (512) 808-5651.

What is the purpose of a dental crown?

A dental crown has many purposes, including:

  • protection of cracked or chipped tooth
  • protection of decayed tooth
  • protection of a tooth that has received root canal therapy
  • improvement of a tooth with flaws
  • restoration of the functionality of a tooth
  • replacement of a pre-existing crown or a broken or unsightly filling

What types of materials are used in crowns?

Our cosmetic dentistry office for dental crowns provides patients with a variety of quality material options for dental crowns. The materials normally include metal alloys (with gold or silver), porcelain fused to metal, ceramic, all-porcelain or zirconia. Depending on what materials we decide are right for the patient's dental crown, the patient can have tooth-colored crowns to restore teeth in a fashion that is not noticeable. When decay or damage cannot be fixed with a filling or bonding, visiting our cosmetic dentistry office for dental crowns is the patient's best option for protection and improvement.

What does the process of getting dental crowns look like?

In most cases, patients will visit our office twice to complete the crown placement. At the first visit, we will prepare the tooth for the dental crown. We will most likely take some X-rays if we do not have up-to-date ones on hand. These will help us make sure the roots of the patient's teeth and the surrounding structure are sound.

We will then provide anesthetics to numb the tooth and the gums around it. We will have to shape the tooth down a little to make room for an all-encompassing crown to fit around it on all sides. The different materials for dental crowns and the current shape or size of the patient's tooth will determine the space for the dental crown. If the tooth has a small amount of damage, we may build it up a little before we place the crown. By building up the tooth, it will look about the same size as the other teeth with the dental crown. We will discuss these options when you visit our cosmetic dentistry office for dental crowns. After the tooth is ready, we will make an impression of the tooth and the area around it that will be used to create your crown.

Once your dental crown is created, you will come back into our dental office for another appointment to have your crown placed. We will provide a local anesthetic, remove the temporary crown we provided you with, and cement your new crown into place.

When you visit our Austin cosmetic dentistry office for dental crowns , we will answer any remaining questions you might have about our dental crowns. If you need a dental crown, get it soon to provide the best protection for your tooth.
