What Are Dental Crowns?

In many cases, teeth that have sustained moderate decay or damage can be treated with a dental crown. Our patient-friendly dental facility proudly provides these dental restorations to Allen, TX patients to help strengthen and protect the visible parts of a tooth while reestablishing its shape and size. Dental crowns are custom-made to match your natural teeth and can be performed to address teeth that are fractured, decayed, oddly shaped, or have other types of structural damage. These dental restorations might also be combined into a unit to create a dental bridge or positioned over single dental implants to restore teeth that have been lost. Set up a visit with our dental practitioners at The Dentist of Allen to find out if a customized dental crown can elevate the health and look of your smile.

At The Dentist Of Allen, we are aware of the self-consciousness and dysfunction of losing or chipped teeth. Our team offers dental crowns as a choice for our Allen, TX individuals who are looking to gain many benefits from their treatment, including:

  • Increased natural and simplicity of speaking, eating, and smiling
  • Easy, customized treatment that needs very little recovery
  • Renewed use and appearance of teeth and mouth
  • Long-lasting outcomes that should keep patients satisfied for years in the future

Allen, TX men and women might benefit from having a crown restoration performed to treat an array of dental concerns and reestablish function and aesthetic appeal for a tooth. The most common reasons for performing a dental crown procedure include:

  • Teeth that have fractures or cracks
  • Eroded or worn teeth
  • Teeth that are discolored or oddly shaped
  • Moderate tooth decay
  • Replacement of large, damaged fillings
  • Teeth that have received a root canal
  • To complete a dental bridge
  • To finish a dental implant

At The Dentist Of Allen, a dental crown is performed for teeth in the front and back of the mouth and might be made from ceramic or other types of natural-looking materials, porcelain over metal, or a precious metal (such as gold). Our qualified dental practitioners can look at your tooth and help you determine the correct type of dental crown procedure for your unique oral needs and aesthetic desires.

What Should I Expect When Receiving Dental Crowns?

Crown procedures for our Allen, TX patients usually happen in two stages. During the initial appointment, one of our dental practitioners will numb your mouth to keep you comfortable. Once the affected area has been cleaned, an impression of the prepared tooth will be captured and used by a dental laboratory to make your custom crown. A temporary crown will be positioned over the tooth to allow for normal eating and drinking and a natural-looking smile while your custom crown is built. We will schedule a follow-up visit at The Dentist of Allen a couple of weeks later so that you can have the temporary crown removed and the new custom-built one attached to your tooth or implant post.

Once placed, your dental crown will be adjusted as needed so your bite is comfortable and even. A member of our staff will recommend cleaning methods and suggest effective flossing and brushing techniques. During your biannual dental exams, one of our dentists will assess your crown and your general oral wellness. With proper care, a dental crown should last for many years. If your restoration ever feels unstable or is no longer attached to your tooth, please contact our office. Attempting to repair or reattach it yourself may cause damage to your tooth and crown.

I've been going to the Dentists in Allen for years. Even after I moved an hour away I still make the trip, because they are wonderful. I've even had my upper smile line done with all crowns! I highly recommend.

About Us
Does getting a dental crown hurt?

During the procedure, getting a dental crown should be painless because your dentist at The Dentist of Allen will use local anesthesia to numb the tooth and surrounding gums. You might feel some discomfort or sensitivity after the procedure once the anesthesia wears off, but this should go away after a few days.

Does a crowned tooth require special care?

While no special care is needed for a crown, it's essential to maintain good oral hygiene. Although a crown protects the tooth, decay can still occur at the gum line. Additionally, you should avoid chewing hard foods or objects that can damage the crown.

How long does a dental crown last?

With good oral hygiene and regular dental checkups, a dental crown can last 10 – 15 years or longer. The exact lifespan may depend on the crown's material, the underlying tooth's health, and wear and tear from biting, chewing, and teeth grinding.
