Dental crowns are custom-made caps that cover and protect damaged or weakened teeth. They restore the tooth's shape, strength, and appearance, offering enhanced durability and aesthetics.
Crowns can be made from different materials. Depending on your needs, you may receive a porcelain-fused-to-metal crown, all-ceramic crown, all-metal crown, or zirconia crown. The choice of crown material depends on factors like durability, aesthetics, and the tooth's location.
Crowns are a versatile solution for teeth with large fillings, fractures, or significant decay, providing long-lasting protection and an improved smile. They’re also used to cover a dental implant or improve a tooth’s look.
Dental crowns are versatile solutions that serve functional and aesthetic benefits. Dr. Kasbidi might recommend a dental crown to:
Crowns can also prolong the life of teeth that might otherwise need to be extracted due to extensive damage or decay.
The first step in getting your crown involves preparing the tooth. Dr. Kasbidi removes any decay or damaged portions. In the case of a crown that’s to anchor a bridge, she may file down the teeth surrounding the gap so the crowns can fit seamlessly. Next, she takes an impression to ensure the crown’s accurate design.
Bluebonnet Dental Advanced Cosmetic and Family Dentistry uses a high-quality, outside lab to manufacture your crown. Your impression is sent to the lab and the permanent crown comes back in a few weeks, at which time Dr. Kasbidi cements it into place and refines your bite. You receive a temporary crown in the meantime.
