If a tooth is at risk due to decay or a cavity, a dental crown can be used to protect it. A dental crown is a prosthetic device that covers the damaged tooth and is often matched in color to your other teeth. Our team at Signature Smile in Royse City performs this procedure daily and it is completely safe and routine. The crown is affixed using dental-grade cement to an existing natural tooth or implant.
Dental crowns are a common dental restoration option that can help restore the appearance and function of a damaged or decayed tooth. At Signature Smile, we use the latest dental technology and techniques to ensure that our dental crowns are both durable and aesthetically pleasing.
Our dental crowns are custom-made to fit perfectly over your existing tooth, providing a natural-looking and long-lasting solution to a variety of dental issues. Whether you have a cracked or broken tooth, a large filling that needs to be replaced, or a tooth that has undergone a root canal, a dental crown can help restore your smile and improve your overall oral health.
We provide a range of dental crown materials such as porcelain, ceramic, and metal. Our skilled dentists will collaborate with you to identify the most suitable material based on your unique requirements and personal preferences.
Fitting a crown requires at least two visits to our office. Initially, we will remove decay, shape the tooth, and fit it with a temporary crown of either plastic or metal.
On the subsequent visit, we will remove the temporary crown and then fit and adjust the final crown. Finally, we will cement the crown into place and you have a new beautiful-looking tooth.
Key Benefits of Dental Crowns
Crown and bridgework is a reliable solution for major dental problems caused by accidents, diseases, or wear and tear. Major problems can usually be corrected using these techniques. The material used in these repairs is either high-grade porcelain or porcelain bonded to gold. A higher strength of the porcelain and gold materials is recommended to treat the most serious of dental problems. Where accidental damage has occurred, resulting in lost teeth, or where teeth have broken away through excessive wear, or as the result of old fillings breaking, crowns and/or bridges can be used as a long-term solution.
Many people have unexplained pain from filled back teeth, which is usually due to hairline cracks in the chewing part of the tooth. Placing crowns on these teeth relieves the pain and allows a return of full dental function for these teeth. In front teeth, older fillings can both weaken the teeth and cause “appearance” problems due to staining or chipping. Porcelain crowns and bridges are suitable in cases where porcelain veneers are not. In teeth with root canal fillings, crowns can prevent breakage.
