At Cherry Blossom Family Dentistry, we provide crowns to patients for a variety of reasons. Whether you need to cover a chip, crack, or large filling, or you need to protect a weakened tooth after damage or a procedure like a root canal, a crown can provide strength and give you back full use of your tooth. We make sure the crowns we place will keep the natural appearance of your smile fully intact. Nobody needs to know that you have a restoration; that is between you and your dentist in Burleson!
Also known as dental caps, crowns are basically a shell that we place over your entire tooth to cover damage, protect against decay, and even aid in the replacement of missing teeth. They provide a new chewing surface to a tooth that is chipped, cracked, or worn down. They can even out a bite after the placement of a large filling. Crowns also provide strength and protection to a tooth after a root canal procedure. When used along with a dental implant or a dental bridge, they restore a full smile where there was once a missing tooth.
Dental crowns can be made from a number of different materials, but porcelain is the most common. With porcelain, we can customize your crown to blend in seamlessly with your surrounding natural teeth, giving your smile a beautiful, uniform appearance.
The cost of your dental crown will depend on the material and the tooth needing the crown. Before we begin your treatment, we always go over your expected out-of-pocket costs and financial options. In addition to being insurance-friendly, our office has an in-house Dental Savers Plan for uninsured patients, and we can also break up your costs into monthly payments. We will work with your budget to get you the dental care you need.
Crowns are so versatile, and there are many different uses for them.
If so, don’t fret! Missing a tooth can sometimes feel embarrassing, but there are many ways your dentist in Burleson can give you your smile back. After a consultation with Cherry Blossom Family Dentistry, our doctors will determine the best course of action for your specific needs. Many times, we will recommend a dental bridge to complete your smile. Dental bridges are a fixed row of porcelain crowns that are permanently joined together in a row and attached to the teeth next to the gap. The dental bridges we provide will look and feel just like your natural teeth do!
There are many factors that determine how the bridge is made. For example, the location of the missing tooth, the health of your existing teeth and gums, how many teeth are missing, and so on. This process seems simple, but can actually be very complicated, and a strong understanding of how to create bridges and replace teeth, as well as knowing how the gum and bone tissue will react is pertinent for the success of your dental bridge. Your Burleson family dentist has extensive knowledge and experience with dental bridges and implants, so you can rest easy knowing you are in good hands.
