How A Dental Crown Repairs Your Smile

gainesville crowns

When you have cracked or chipped a tooth, or when a tooth develops a serious case of tooth decay or infection, then a custom dental restoration can offer relief and prevent major problems! At our helpful local Gainesville, TX dental office, our team can return your smile to optimal health, function, and beauty with the placement of a dental crown.

When You Need Restorative Dentistry

A dental crown, also known as a full restoration, covers the entirety of your tooth, everything above the gum line. Once in place, we can address an array of restorative concerns, and do so with cosmetic results. For example, we can repair cracked, chipped, or broken teeth, and add length to ones worn down by bruxism (teeth grinding). The placement process could also address severe tooth decay and for an infected tooth, complete a root canal procedure. Wewe can also use them to help improve bite balance and chewing function, if you have missing teeth, then our crowns could support a bridge or finish a single tooth dental implant.

Creating and Placing Them

To ensure a balanced bite and lifelike results, our team will custom-make them. To get started, we will numb the tooth and remove structure to make room for the restoration. We gather detailed images and measurements from multiple angles. We use them to design the restoration in a lab setting. When possible, we will use materials like ceramic, which can be shaded to match your tooth and offer a lifelike appearance. Our team then attaches the finished crown to your tooth with a powerful bonding agent, so it can provide years of quality restoration and a natural appearance.

Repair and Replacement

While crowns can last for several years, if they begin to weaken or become damaged, we could potentially repair them or replace them as needed. If you have older restorations that are metal and don’t blend with your smile, we could talk about securing a new one that does look natural. When in place, these can help your smile stay healthy and strong, and offer results that make you feel confident in your appearance. If you have any questions about how our team will design and attach a dental crown, or if you have an issue that needs attention and possibly repair, then please reach out to our team today to learn more. We’re ready to help you enjoy your best-looking smile and optimal oral health!
