Dental Crowns Provide Natural-Looking Results

When you have sustained a damaged tooth, or if a painful cavity develops that a filling cannot address, then you need a dental restoration. With our custom crowns, we can repair teeth and even aid in replacing missing ones. In today’s blog, your El Paso, TX, dentists talk about our custom and lifelike dental crowns.

When a Tooth Benefits from a Restoration

When you have persistent pain or sensitivity in your tooth, this could be due to a cavity or possibly the early stages of an infection. If your tooth is damaged, even if the chip appears minor, you still need care to avoid worsening pain and the risk of tooth loss. When we need to repair a tooth, we place a dental restoration. The restoration helps improve not only the function and health of your tooth, but also the appearance too. When we place a crown, we want you to enjoy relief from discomfort and have results that make you feel proud to smile!

The Materials We Employ

Our team can use a variety of materials to create your dental restoration. For the front facing teeth, we could use all-porcelain, which is the most lifelike option available and shaded to blend with your smile. In some cases, we even whiten your teeth beforehand so your repair matches your brightest smile. Your side and rear teeth must endure greater bite forces and pressures, so we may use zirconia or possibly porcelain-fused-to-metal, which not only provide better stability, but can also be color matched to blend with your smile. Don’t ignore damaged teeth or discomfort, let us know right away so we can repair and preserve your smile with a dental crown!

Creating and Placing a Crown

To begin, our team will numb the tooth being treated and then remove a small amount of outer structure from it. Once we do, we will take detailed digital images of the teeth from multiple angles, and sing them in a lab setting to design and craft the finished product. When your restoration is ready, we will check the fit and make any necessary adjustments to ensure a proper fit. We then connect the corn with a powerful bonding agent, so it can stay in place for years to come.
