How Dental Crowns Restore A Smile

man with healthy and nice smileThe work of restoring a damaged tooth, or one affected by a cavity, can provide long-term protection as well as functional benefits. By providing a custom dental crown when you need treatment, your Katy, TX dentist’s office can preserve your dental function and even restore your smile! A crown is a custom restoration that fully covers a tooth above your gum line. When care is provided for a tooth that is more visible when you smile, a restoration made with a lifelike material can be used during your procedure. If you need work done on one of your molars, which are more difficult to see and put under more pressure, we can use a stronger material to provide protection.

Restoring An Unhealthy Tooth With A Custom Crown

Restorative dental work addresses permanent damage to a tooth. Sometimes, this work can be completed with a more conservative filling, which only changes a small portion of your enamel. However, there are times when a dental crown is needed to address an injury or severe cavity. This larger restoration completely covers your tooth structure above your gum line. This calls for more preparatory work, and treatment can require two appointments. However, with your crown, you can enjoy more support for bite function and keep a tooth in a vulnerable tooth safe!

We Can Provide A Crown That Imitates Your Tooth Structure

A dental crown that matches the appearance of your healthy enamel can have cosmetic benefits while also providing important protection. We will take care to make sure the restoration is the right shape and size, as well as the right color, to provide important support without interfering with the way you look. This can be welcome news to anyone who has a severe cavity that affects a front tooth, or visible dental damage that they wish to address.

Planning Care When You Have Several Teeth In Need Of Treatment

For someone who has several teeth in need of treatment, or a person whose tooth trouble is accompanied by issues with their bite function, it can be beneficial to discuss a full mouth reconstruction!
