We all want to keep our natural teeth healthy and in good condition, but it's not always possible. Trauma, decay, illness, and other issues can lead to cracked, damaged, or worn down teeth. When your tooth becomes damaged like this, often the best way to preserve it is with a dental crown.
Strong, Natural Dental Crowns
At our Pflugerville and Marble Falls dental offices, we strive to restore your teeth with crowns that are both natural-looking and durable. The latest advancements in technology allow your team at Bright Smiles Family Dentistry to provide an all-porcelain dental crown that can strengthen your tooth while restoring the appropriate size, shape, and natural appearance. A well-made dental crown is virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth.
Dental crowns protect cracked and damaged teeth by completely encasing the tooth, adding structure and stability to your bite. These dental crowns can be made in a variety of shapes, sizes, and shades to match your teeth perfectly. Often a crown can save a tooth that would otherwise require extraction, including teeth with excessive decay that can't be restored with a filling.
Why Choose All-Porcelain Dental Crowns?
While we offer dental crowns in a variety of materials, today's technology makes it simple for your Marble Falls, or Pflugerville dentist to provide completely metal-free porcelain crowns that are unmatched in both appearance and strength. These beautiful dental crowns are custom crafted just for you and will create a smile you can be proud of.
Many dentists still use porcelain-over-metal crowns, but advances in technology have made today's all-porcelain crowns tougher than ever. Metal-free porcelain crowns help to restore your teeth to a healthy and natural look without the dark shadowing near the gum line that is very common with the older porcelain-over-metal crowns.
What to Expect When Getting a Dental Crown
If you need a crown restoration, your dentist will prepare your tooth and take impressions to ensure the new crown fits beautifully. A temporary crown will be placed to protect the prepared tooth surfaces from damage while the permanent crown is made.
Once your permanent crown is ready, you'll return to our Marble Falls and Pflugerville dental office for a final fitting. Your dentist can make small adjustments if necessary to ensure your crown looks and feels perfect. The crown is then permanently bonded to the tooth.
After the crown is bonded into place, simply care for the crown just like a natural tooth, through good brushing and flossing habits each day. Your beautiful new porcelain crown will keep you smiling for years to come with proper care.
