Dental Crowns Houston, TX
What are Dental Crowns?
You no longer need to hide your smile because of gaps, chips, stains, or misshapen teeth. With veneers, you can easily correct your teeth’s imperfections to help you have a more confident, beautiful smile. Veneers are natural in appearance and are a perfect option for patients wanting to make minor adjustments to the look and feel of their smile.
In-Office Dental Crowns
There are many reasons to need a dental crown. Houston residents that come for a tooth crown, normally need the procedure to preserve a natural tooth that has been damaged too much to be fixed with a regular tooth filling. A dental crown replaces the entire outside of the tooth.
The most common reasons to need a dental crown are:
- Root Canal
- Broken Tooth
- Fractured Tooth
- Weak tooth
- Tooth that has been damaged by a metal filling
- Discolored tooth that doesn’t respond to whitening
When a filling fails, dangerous bacteria and food particles enter under the old filling and grow without notice. This often happens with ZERO pain until the bacteria burrow its way to the center of your tooth where the nerve is located. Once the bacteria reach the nerve, a toothache usually appears.
A broken tooth is also a serious condition and you will most likely need a crown. Unlike a broken bone, a broken tooth will not heal itself.
Vertical cracks that travel the gum line may require a full-coverage crown. If the crack goes below the gum line, the tooth may require a root canal, with crown lengthening or possibly even extraction.
At Complete Dental, our doctors will only use the best materials for our patients. In most cases, our doctors will use porcelain crowns to ensure a more natural looking smile. Porcelain crowns have the ability to be somewhat transparent and are almost identical to natural teeth.
