Dental crowns serve a number of purposes to complete your smile with a natural-looking prosthetic.
A tooth crown is an all ceramic crown or cap that covers an existing tooth to preserve it after becoming damaged or weakened. Patients who have root canal treatments or extreme tooth decay, for example, may need a dental crown to protect the tooth’s remaining structure and to retain functionality.
Tooth crowns can also be placed over misshapen or discolored teeth as a cosmetic dentistry procedure to improve the appearance of smile. Patients who require dental implants or tooth bridges may also need a tooth crown to cover the implants or secure a dental bridge in place.
To achieve the best results, all ceramic crowns are shaped at a dental laboratory after being molded for your mouth at our office in El Paso, TX.
Before the permanent mold has been milled at the lab, our dentist will place a temporary crown over the affected tooth or implant. But once you come back for that permanent tooth crown, you’ll have a strong protection for your teeth so that they won’t need to be extracted.
