If your tooth has become damaged to an extent that a filling or dental bonding cannot fix, a dental crown can be the remedy for you. At Timeless Dental, you can find high-quality crowns to restore your tooth in The Woodlands.
A crown is a cover that is placed on a tooth to address issues with its appearance and/or function. Because it completely covers a tooth, it is also commonly called a “cap.” A crown restores a tooth to its normal shape, size, and function.
Crowns can be placed for a variety of reasons, such as to:
Dental crowns can be made from several types of materials, including metal alloys, ceramics, porcelain fused to metal, or composite resin. Your dentist at Timeless Dental will choose the best material to suit the purpose of the crown and where it will be located.
It will take one dental visit to have a crown placed. During your visit, the tooth will be prepared to receive the crown. Your dentist will remove a small portion of the enamel to make room for the crown to fit. Any decay will also be removed and the tooth will be cleaned. Your dentist will place the permanent crown on the tooth to check the fit and make any necessary adjustments before cementing it into place.
To restore your tooth or to make cosmetic improvements on it, consider having a dental crown placed at Timeless Dental in The Woodlands.
