What Are Dental Crowns?

In many cases, teeth that have suffered moderate damage or tooth decay can generally be repaired with a crown restoration. Our modern dental practice proudly offers dental crowns to Dallas, TX patients to help protect and strengthen the visible portion of a damaged tooth while also reestablishing its normal function and appearance. Dental crowns are custom-crafted to blend seamlessly with your existing teeth and might be placed to address fractured teeth, dental caries, misshapen teeth, or additional forms of structural damage. These restorations may also be fused into an appliance to function as a dental bridge or attached to dental implants to replace missing teeth. Book a treatment consultation with our dental practitioners at Kissable Dental to learn whether a custom-made dental crown can elevate the health and appearance of your smile.

The Dental Crown Procedure

Crown procedures for Dallas, TX patients usually take place within a couple of visits. During your initial visit, one of our highly trained dental experts will administer local anesthesia to the treatment area and may incorporate sedation dentistry services to increase your comfort level if you prefer. When the damaged tooth structure has been removed, we may use the iTero® digital impression scanner to create an impression of the treated tooth, which will be taken and used by a professional dental lab to fabricate your custom dental crown. The scanner digitally records each tooth to provide increased accuracy for restorations, like crowns and bridges. A temporary crown will be positioned over your tooth to maintain oral function and a natural-looking aesthetic appeal while your new dental restoration is being crafted. You will need to schedule a follow-up visit at Kissable Dental 1 – 2 weeks later to have the provisional crown removed and your custom crown bonded to your tooth or dental implant.

What are the Benefits of Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns offer many benefits for patients who want to restore the strength, health, and appearance of their teeth. These dental restorations can:

  • Protect a damaged tooth: Crowns cover the entire visible portion of a tooth, adding an extra layer of protection from further damage or decay.
  • Preserve tooth structure: Depending on where the damage is located, crowns can seal in vulnerable areas and preserve the remaining structure.
  • Restore function: A dental crown restores normal chewing and biting functions so you can eat and even speak confidently.
  • Improve the appearance of a tooth: To top it all off, our crowns are to match the shape, size, and color of your existing teeth, providing a more aesthetically pleasing smile.
