Repair Your Damaged or Broken Teeth with Dental Crowns & Bridges. Call Today!830-476-5112
Many times, our patients will need a crown for their tooth. A crown is a restoration that wraps around the tooth and holds it together so that it can't crack anymore, break anymore. It also is designed to provide a good biting surface, a good strong biting surface. Teeth that need crowns are teeth with large fillings in them, that are being restored again, cracked teeth, broken teeth, worn-down teeth. Those are all best restored with a crown.
By doing multiple fillings in a tooth, replacing old fillings, they get bigger and bigger, and if you just do another filling, you've left a weak tooth. We want a good strong tooth that is gonna be strong for a long time, hopefully the rest of your life.
Dental crowns cover your whole tooth. So they can repair all kinds of dental damage, including:
- Broken teeth
- Cracked teeth
- Severely decayed teeth
- Worn-down teeth
They can also replace missing teeth, if we attach them to dental implants or use them to create a dental bridge.
If damaged or missing teeth are making it difficult for you to eat, smile, or speak normally, Dr. David Crowe of Smile Advanced Dental Care can fix the damage with a dental crown or dental bridge in New Braunfels, TX. Our personalized care at Smile Advanced Dental Care has made us “best dentist” in the annual New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung Readers’ Choice survey for five years in a row. Dr. David Crowe also appeared on a list of Super Dentists in Texas Monthly Magazine.
Dental Crowns Offer Many Benefits
In addition to their ability to correct so many problems, dental crowns:
- Restore your tooth’s appearance for a natural-looking smile
- Protect your tooth from further damage
- Last for many years, with proper care
At Smile Advanced Dental Care in New Braunfels, TX, we take careful impressions of your teeth that are used to create your dental crown so it will fit perfectly. We use digital technology for the impressions, so you won’t have a mouthful of messy molding material!
We use zirconia and porcelain for our dental crowns. Both materials are:
- Natural looking. They closely resemble your own teeth in color and translucency.
- Long-lasting. Both materials are durable and can withstand plenty of wear and tear.
Zirconia may be the preferred choice for teeth in high-profile locations, as it offers some cosmetic advantages:
- No metal base needed. Porcelain crowns are sometimes fused to a metal base, which creates a dark line at your gumline. With zirconia, you won’t have a tell-tale line.
- Lower impact on natural teeth. Zirconia dental crowns require less modification of your teeth than porcelain crowns.
Inlays, Onlays, and Dental Bridges Repair Damage Too
Dental crowns aren’t always the most appropriate solution. If decay is too extensive for a tooth filling but not bad enough for a crown, Dr. David Crowe of Smile Advanced Dental Care in New Braunfels, TX can bond an inlay or an onlay to your tooth’s surface. Like a filling or crown, it will stop decay while protecting your tooth from future damage.
To replace a single missing tooth or multiple teeth, we can use two dental crowns to anchor a dental bridge. Bridges can be attached to your natural teeth or to dental implants.
