After receiving a filling, our Dallas dentist will continue the restorative process by placing a dental crown on your tooth. One of our team’s main goals with this treatment is to make your teeth look and feel natural so you are able to feel comfortable smiling like you always have. Crowns are also extremely durable and can last a lifetime.
Learn About Dental Crowns
You may require a dental crown if one of your teeth is damaged to the point where a simple filling will not provide the level of restoration it needs. They can be used to resolve a wide variety of problems in your smile, which can be caused by anything from accidents and diseases to general wear.
Depending on the severity of the issue you are trying to resolve, the crown may either be made of porcelain bonded to gold or high-grade porcelain. The higher-strength materials will be used for the most serious dental problems.
Dental crowns are long-lasting and reliable. They are especially effective if the infection or damage to a patient’s smile appears to be past the point of repair. Even if you are worried about the future of your smile, we can help!

What are the Benefits of Dental Crowns?
- They will restore the natural look of your tooth and are most often made of porcelain, which will blend in beautifully with the surrounding teeth.
- They can also protect weak teeth prone to damage.
- Crowns will last if you are responsible with oral hygiene and come to see us every six months.
- Missing teeth can be replaced.
Depending on how many crowns you require, the fitting process may take at least two visits to our Dallas dental office. The first stage of the treatment process will involve removing any infection or decay in the affected tooth, reshaping it, and placing a temporary crown on it. The temporaries are usually made of metal or plastic.
During your next appointment, the temporary crown will be removed and replaced with a permanent one. It will then be adjusted to make sure it is an exact fit for your tooth before being cemented into place.
Among many other uses, dental crowns can strengthen fractured or weak teeth, upgrade your smile’s aesthetic appearance, cover a dental implant, protect a tooth after receiving a root canal, anchor a dental bridge, improve the shape of a tooth, and support a large filling if most of the natural tooth is gone.
