Dental Crowns for North Dallas Residents
Do you feel self-conscious about your smile because of cracked, broken, decayed, or worn teeth? Our Dallas dental office can help you revitalize your health and your confidence with one or more custom-made dental crowns. Fillings can help you treat small defects, like cavities, while a crown can provide long-term help for more extensive problems, from advanced decay to structural damage. And with the materials used to make today’s crowns, the results will look natural.
Most contemporary crowns are made from strong, durable porcelain, which closely mimics the appearance of natural enamel. Porcelain also reflects light the way enamel does. As a result, you can smile or speak feeling confident in the knowledge that no one will ever notice your crown.
Besides repairing decay or structural damage, crowns can also correct problems with your bite, close spaces between your teeth, and—as part of a bridge or implant—replace a missing tooth.
Dental Crown Procedure
In Dallas, dental crowns are expertly crafted by Dale W. Greer, D.D.S. Inc. When you come to our office, we will make sure you are completely comfortable before beginning your crown procedure. It’s not unusual for a patient to feel somewhat nervous before a lengthy procedure such as a crown. If you’d like some help feeling relaxed in the dentist’s chair, we do offer sedation dentistry. Be sure to talk to Dr. Greer or one of his assistants about this completely safe and reliable treatment.
Once you're comfortable, Dr. Greer will anesthetize the tooth and surrounding gum tissue. Then, he will gently remove decay if there is any present and reduce the size of your damaged tooth. In this way, your new crown will fit seamlessly alongside your other teeth. When this portion of the procedure is completed, we will take an impression of your prepared tooth that we will use in the office to make a temporary crowns, and our dental lab will use to make your permanent crown.
When your custom-crafted permanent crown is ready, you'll return to our office where Dr. Greer will remove the temporary and cement your new crown into place. He will make sure the crown fits comfortably when you bite together. Whether your crown is to restore a damaged tooth or is part of bridgework or a dental implant, you can be sure your newly restored smile will be healthy and natural-looking.
