A Great Way to Fix Dental Damage & Decay

These restorations protect your tooth’s damaged areas and help them look better than ever. If you’d like to find out more, feel free to book a consultation with our office. We’d be happy to help!

What is a Dental Crown?

Put plainly, a dental crown is a cap-shaped structure that fits over a damaged tooth. Doing so restores a pearly white’s structure, function, and appearance. In general, a patient would qualify for dental crowns in the following cases:

  • A tooth is severely decayed such that its filling needs added support
  • Due to injury, a patient’s tooth suffered a fracture and needs to be held together
  • A tooth is severely misshapen or discolored
  • The patient’s recent dental implant requires a covering
  • A dental bridge needs to be anchored in place to remain stable

Of course, you can always talk to your local dentist to confirm your crown candidacy.

The Dental Crown Process

Placing a dental crown usually takes a few appointments, at least.

The first visit will include an oral exam to confirm if a crown is right for you. As part of this step, your dentist will examine your mouth for any prior oral health issues. Depending on what they find, they might recommend preventive work before the crown treatment. Otherwise, the dentist will walk you through what to expect from the procedure.

Later, you’ll attend a “prep” visit that readies your tooth for its crown. For starters, this stage will remove some enamel, so the final product lays flush with surrounding teeth. It’ll then have your dentist take an impression used to make your crown.

Lastly, once the ceramic crown is ready, we’ll call you back for the final appointment. Your dentist will place the completed prosthetic over your tooth at that time. Before you leave, we’ll also explain how to care for your new restoration.

At Avion Dental & Orthodontics, our dental crowns are some of the best in DFW. They have plenty of perks for patients, including the following:

  • Better-Looking Smile: Among other things, dental crowns hide unsightly cracks and fractures. Plus, they have a lifelike appearance thanks to their ceramic material. As such, they help your smile look nicer!
  • Tooth Protection: As a dental crown covers up a tooth’s damaged area, it keeps said tooth from needing more invasive treatments later — root canal therapy, tooth extraction, etc.
  • Improved Chewing: With a dental crown, a tooth can bite like normal and restore your ability to eat easily.
  • Long-Lasting Results: Given proper care, a dental crown can last 15+ years.
