When a tooth becomes cracked or broken, or if decay is too advanced for a filling, then saving your tooth may mean you need a crown. These restorations are not only durable and long-lasting, but they can look natural too! In today’s blog, your Garland, TX, dentist talks about how we create and place natural-looking dental crowns.
When Does a Tooth Need Repair?
The crown caps the tooth and can address an array of both restorative and even cosmetic concerns with the teeth. Our team can use them to address cracked, chipped, or even broken teeth. We can lengthen worn down tooth structure too, and reshape misshapen ones. Placement can improve overall bite balance and chewing function. If you have missing teeth, then one or two could be used to secure a dental bridge, or we could use one to restore a single tooth dental implant.
Our Lifelike Materials
We not only want to provide repair and restoration for your endangered teeth, but we want the results to look natural too! Which is why when possible, we opt for more lifelike materials. For the front facing teeth, we could use all-porcelain, the most lifelike option. Our team could use porcelain-fused-to-metal or zirconia for the side and rear teeth, which must endure serious bite forces and pressures. All these options can be shaded to blend with your smile, while still providing a durable and dependable chewing surface, so you can enjoy your favorite meals and smile with confidence.
Creating and Placing the Restoration
To create and place a dental crown, we start by carefully examines your smile and then numbing the tooth receiving treatment. Our team then gently removes structure from it to make room for the future crown. Digital images and measurements are taken of the teeth from multiple angles, and used to design and fabricate the finished product. When the restoration is ready, you will return for a second visit so we can check the fit and make any necessary adjustments. Finally, we attach the dental crown with a powerful bonding agent, securing it for years to come. If you have a damaged or aching tooth, or a gap in your smile due to tooth loss, then contact our team to talk about treatment options. We’re ready to transform your smile this summer, so you can smile with confidence once again!
