Dental Crowns

The Importance of Dental Crowns

When teeth are damaged due to decay or are compromised or weakened in any way, dental crowns are used to restore the strength, look, and function of the affected teeth. Dental crowns are caps or covers that are meant to protect your tooth after it has been restored from damage. At Austin 3D Dental, we take great care to ensure that your dental crowns look, feel, and function the same as your natural teeth, giving you natural results that will enhance your smile and make you feel confident.

Why Do You Need a Dental Crown?

There are many reasons that you may need a dental crown to restore your smile. Some of these reasons include:      

  • You just had a dental implant and need to have a crown fitted
  • You had a root canal and need a dental crown to cover and protect the affected tooth
  • You have a weakened tooth that needs to be strengthened with a crown
  • Your tooth is discolored or oddly shaped
  • Your tooth is cracked or worn down

No matter the reason, at Austin 3D Dental, we offer the dental crowns that you need to restore your teeth to full form and function.

Listen to our dentist in Austin, Dr. May Chen, discuss the reasons for why dental crowns may be right for you

What Happens During the Procedure for Dental Crown Placement?

Once your tooth has been treated for decay and is ready for crown placement, your dentist will prepare the tooth by removing a part of the enamel to make room for the crown. An impression of your tooth will then be made and sent off to the dental lab. Once the dental lab sends us your dental crown, we will have you come into our office for placement. If you are satisfied with the crown, your dentist will cement the crown into place. With exact color match and skillful placement, you’ll have a beautiful, natural smile that you can proudly show off.
