Dental Crowns

Restore Those Damaged Teeth with Dental Crowns in Houston, Texas!

What is a dental crown? A dental crown is a cover or a cap that is placed over a tooth that has been severely damaged or decayed. Over time, teeth can wear down, meaning they can no longer do the job for which they were intended. Sometimes, a tooth can even be broken or disfigured to the point where a simple filling won't adequately repair the injury. In these cases, a crown will save and even add strength to your damaged tooth.

Why should I get a dental crown?

Dental Crowns help protect a weak tooth (for instance, from decay) from breaking and can be used to hold together parts of a cracked tooth. If you have a broken or even worn down tooth, a crown can help restore your tooth back to its normal look and function. Crowns can cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn't a lot of tooth left. Also, when patients have brides, crowns help hold a dental bridge in place. And finally, crowns are used for cosmetic medication – for instance, cover miss-shaped or severely discolored teeth.

What are the benefits of crowns?

For the most part, crowns help restore the functionality of your mouth by helping you maintain your normal chewing function. They also have some financial benefits. Crowns can help save you money down the road from paying for an extraction or even dental implants. Last, it helps with appearance. Crowns can help boost your confidence by improving the look for your teeth.
