Affordable Teeth Whitening and Bleaching
The Plano dentist or Melissa dentist are able to be restore teeth with conservative composite fillings. However, when too much of a tooth’s natural structure is removed from large decay, failing restorations, or cracks, a crown or “cap” may be necessary. Crowns help restore the shape, size, strength, and appearance of damaged teeth. Crowns are custom made for each patient and prevent further damage from affecting bone health and nerve functions.
A crown may be needed to:
- Restore a tooth when it is unable to support a large filling
- Replace missing teeth for a bridge
- Protect a weak tooth from fracturing or restore fractured teeth
- Cover badly shaped or discolored teeth
- Cover dental implants
Dental crowns help patients avoid procedures like extractions by preserving what’s left of the natural tooth. This permanent covering fits over your original tooth to strengthen and improve the appearance of the tooth. Fitting a crown generally requires at least two visits to the office.
