If your teeth are too damaged by dental decay to be fixed by a dental filling, our dentists may recommend a dental crown. This treatment “caps” the remaining healthy parts of your tooth and is matched to your natural tooth color for a smooth fix. It can also be used with a dental implant to replace a missing tooth. For more information about dental crowns in League City, Texas, call Tieken Smiles Dentistry at 281-334-4944 and meet with Dr. Derek Tieken or Dr. Dylan Rutherford.
The versatility of dental crowns makes them a common restoration option for addressing a number of cosmetic and dental health concerns. When a cavity is too extensive to be repaired with a simple dental filling, a crown can be used to save the decayed tooth, covering and protecting the remaining natural tooth structure while restoring the tooth’s beauty and function. Like all restorations our team offer, this dental crown will be custom-crafted to meet your needs, fitting comfortably over the tooth to match your natural smile and bite. While dental crowns can be made of gold or other metals, porcelain is the most popular choice, as this material is stain resistant and closely resembles natural enamel.
In addition to restoring decayed teeth, dental crowns can also be used to:
- Cap dental implants to replace missing teeth
- Anchor and support a dental bridge
- Correct misshapen or broked teeth
- Complete a root canal treatment
Depending on your specific situation, this restoration may be completed in one or two visits to our office, and our dentists will sit down and talk you through the entire process, as well as your other restoration options, before beginning treatment.
