Consistent and thorough oral hygiene efforts can keep your smile safe from problems like tooth decay. Unfortunately, even those patients who feel confident in the effort they put into caring for their teeth can experience problems that require restorative treatment. At our Dallas, TX dentist’s office, patients who require treatment can count on us even when an issue is serious. We can provide a custom dental crown that fits over a tooth to address problems with advanced decay as well as physical injuries that damage your enamel. When appropriate, we can provide a restoration made to match the color and texture of your enamel to preserve your smile!
When dental decay or physical trauma affect a person’s tooth, restorative dental work is needed to provide protection and prevent the problem from worsening. While a dental filling offers a more conservative treatment, a crown provides additional coverage by completely covering your tooth. To make sure it fits properly and stays secure, we take important measurements and do preparatory work to design a custom restoration that is just the right shape and size for you!
There are many different materials we can choose from when it comes to making a restoration. Options like porcelain and zirconia are capable of closely matching your healthy tooth structure, which means you can undergo treatment without changing the way you look. We do provide more durable options, such as metal or porcelain-fused-to-metal, which can provide more protection for back teeth. That additional support is important, as back teeth tend to absorb more significant degrees of pressure.
While it is a relief to know that your dentist can restore your smile and oral health when something goes wrong, your goal of preventing problems should not change! With regular dental exams scheduled, you can keep yourself safe from problems with cavities that threaten your oral health. You can also receive timely treatment if you have issues with bruxism, a habitual teeth grinding issue that can do damage to your enamel.
Through the appropriate restorative dental work, we can take care of your smile, bite function, and oral health with a custom dental crown. The treatment you undergo can ensure that even a serious cavity or physical injury does not rob you of confidence in your ability to bite and chew. With a crown made from porcelain or zirconia, we can also provide treatment that preserves your appearance.
