Schedule an appointment today to see how our board-certified dentists can help preserve and enhance your natural teeth for years to come with dental crowns.

What Are Dental Crowns?

While enamel is the hardest substance in our body, it’s still susceptible to erosion and other types of damage. Unfortunately once tooth enamel is damaged, it cannot repair itself like a broken arm or leg would. Dental crowns can help protect and preserve teeth with weakened enamel that cannot be restored from a filling or other type of restoration.

A dental crown is a custom-made “cap” that is placed on a weak or damaged tooth to restore its original shape, size and function. A crown looks just like an artificial tooth and is designed to cover the entire exterior of your existing tooth, rather than just a small portion of your tooth’s surface like a veneer. Our dental crowns in Austin are made from porcelain material, as porcelain is extremely durable and provides a long-lasting solution for patients. Porcelain crowns are color-matched to your natural teeth, and provide the most natural appearance unsurpassed by any other type of dental crown.

Benefits of Dental Crowns

Dental crowns in Austin are one of the best restorative treatments to help preserve and extend the life of your natural teeth. They offer several key benefits to your oral health. Some of the most prominent benefits of dental crowns include:

  • Restores strength and functionality of teeth
  • Improves the ability to chew and eat
  • Protects against further tooth decay or damage
  • Holds together cracked or broken teeth
  • Relieves tooth sensitivity and discomfort
  • Helps prevent tooth loss or future extraction
  • Improves oral health
  • Enhances the appearance of teeth
  • Look just like natural teeth
  • Durable and long-lasting
  • Minimal to no downtime

What Are Dental Crowns Used For?

Dental crowns are one of the best restorative options for teeth that are severely damaged or vulnerable in any way. They are often used to repair enamel, improve the tooth’s structural integrity, or complete another restorative dental treatment. Our dentists may recommend dental crowns in Austin for the following reasons:

  • To restore a cracked, broken, or fractured tooth
  • To protect a weakened tooth from damage or infection
  • To save a tooth severely damaged by decay
  • To cover and support a tooth with a large filling
  • To hold a dental bridge in place
  • To restore strength after a root canal treatment
  • To cover and complete a dental implant
  • To make a cosmetic modification

We primarily use dental crowns for restorative purposes; however, they can also be used as a cosmetic dental treatment to improve the appearance of your smile. For patients solely interested in the cosmetic benefits, we will typically recommend veneers over crowns first. For patients who are not a good candidate for veneers, our dentists may recommend dental crowns in Austin for the following cosmetic concerns:

  • To close gaps or spaces between teeth
  • To restore length on worn or uneven teeth
  • To cover misshapen or severely discolored teeth

Regular exams help spot trouble early to prevent bigger and more costly treatments later.

Medical and dental experts study the use of X-rays and set limits for their safety. Your dentist should take as few as possible. Sometimes dentists may recommend X-rays to diagnose a special problem. Advancements in technology means today’s digital X-rays release much less radiation and are safer than in the past.

Stores sell many whitening products, and you can get take-home gels and trays from your dentist, but neither is as strong as procedures done in a dental office

If you want to try an over-the-counter whitener, look for one with an ADA seal. Check with your dentist for advice before you buy, especially if you have dental work or dark stains. And don’t keep using them, or you could damage your teeth.

Caps and crowns cover problem teeth by surrounding them in a material that looks like a real tooth. They use the root and inside of the tooth as a base to build on, then attach with special cement.

Children, teens, and adults should all see the dentist for a regular checkup at least once every six months. Patients who are at a greater risk for oral cancer or gum disease may be required to see the dentist more than just twice a year. Your doctor will help determine how often you should visit the dentist for regular checkups.
