In the past, patients with broken or decayed teeth had few treatment options. Most of the time, dentist would perform extractions, leaving a noticeable gap in the patient’s grin. Fortunately, a lot has changed since those days. Today, Dr. Vi Truong-Mai, who offers dental crowns in Garland, TX, assures you that extraction is no longer the go-to method of dealing with damaged teeth. You will appreciate that placing crowns now requires less of your time, and that the results are more precise and discrete.
Are You a Candidate for Dental Crowns?
We most frequently use dental crows to reinforce and protect teeth that have sustained severe structural damage. Compared to extraction, this approach preserves more of your tooth and offers greater protection. Crowns are versatile, making them an ideal solution for:
- Teeth that have sustained significant damage due to decay
- Teeth that have broken, cracked, or chipped
- Teeth damaged by serious injuries to the mouth
- A tooth damaged by traumatic injury
- Teeth that have fallen out, as part of a dental implant
Modern Materials for Crowns
We create dental crowns using durable, long-lasting materials that can hold up to eating, biting, and the daily grind. If you desire a natural appearance or must treat a tooth near the front of your mouth, you will appreciate ceramic crowns. Artfully crafted and custom-tinted, porcelain crowns blend in with your existing teeth for a seamless, discrete solution. Dr. Mai also offers porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns and metal crowns, which are better suited to withstand the pressure on your molars. When you visit our Garland dentist office, you will discuss your concerns and preferences about which material to use.
