Selecting The Right Crown For Your Tooth

If a review of your smile reveals that you need work done on a tooth, our Dallas, TX dental office will work with you to provide an effective solution. What this means is we will focus on finding options that preserve your smile and ability to bite and chew without difficulty. This sometimes calls for the placement of a custom dental crown, a restoration that surrounds your tooth above the gums. Based on what you need, we can recommend care with a more durable crown made to hold up against the strongest bite pressures, or we can recommend that you receive one that is made to closely imitate healthy enamel.

We Provide Personalized Care When Patients Need Crowns

Dental crowns are effective at treating teeth affected by larger cavities that cannot be protected with dental fillings. They are also capable of providing positive results when teeth are misshapen or damaged and require extra support. Because this requires more work on your tooth structure than treatment with a filling or cosmetic dental treatment, it is one we recommend when there are not more conservative options. Fortunately, when you do need this protection, you can receive it without worrying about how it will impact your smile or quality of life, as we can use the right type of restoration to deliver lasting improvements.

Selecting The Crown That Best Suits Your Needs

The crown that is best suited to your needs will depend on what tooth is being restored. Back teeth like our molars and premolars need to do more work and absorb greater degrees of bite pressure. For them, we can recommend that you receive either metal or porcelain-fused-to-metal restorations. All-porcelain crowns and zirconia crowns provide functional support, too, and they are able to match your tooth structure. With zirconia, we can offer positive esthetic results while still offering more bite support.

Keep Your Smile Safe And Avoid Future Restorative Procedures!

Better smile care at home, along with consistent dental exams and cleanings, can make you less likely to need dental work with crowns in the future. We can provide regular updates that include warnings about decay that can be treated with dental fillings. This still involves the permanent removal of a portion of your tooth structure, but it still preserves more of it and makes your care more conservative.
