What Are Dental Crowns?
In a number of cases, teeth that have sustained moderate damage or decay are treated with a crown. Our patient-friendly dental office provides crowns to Dallas, TX residents to help cover and protect the visible portion of a tooth while also restoring a more natural appearance and function. Crowns, also known as caps, are made to blend seamlessly with your teeth and are oftentimes performed to treat teeth that are broken, decayed, oddly shaped, and with additional types of oral damage. Dental crowns might also be used to create another restoration (such as a bridge) or connected to single implants to replace teeth that are missing. Set up an appointment with our dental team at Dallas Dental Concierge to determine if a customized restoration can improve the health and appearance of your smile.
HOW IS IT DONE?
Dental crown procedures for Dallas, TX men and women typically take place in two visits. At your initial appointment, one of our highly trained dental practitioners will administer a local anesthetic to your tooth and gums and can incorporate sedation dentistry solutions to enhance your comfort if desired. After the affected tooth structure is cleaned out, an impression of the treated tooth will be taken and used by a dental lab to craft your custom restoration. A provisional dental crown will then be worn on the treated tooth to uphold normal function and a natural aesthetic appeal while your custom restoration is being made. You should return to Dallas Dental Concierge a few weeks afterward to have the temporary crown taken off and your new crown adhered to your tooth or implant post.

Dental cavities, damaged teeth, and similar concerns may be best treated with a custom crown from our Dallas, TX practice.
