What is a Dental Crown?
A crown is a cap that fits over the visible portion of a tooth. The dental crown protects the remaining tooth structure and prevents further infection or decay. Our dental crowns are created using dental ceramic, durable material that mimics the appearance of natural teeth. As a result, your new restoration will blend seamlessly with your smile and return your tooth to full function and health.
Common Uses of Dental Crowns
What are crowns used for? A crown can restore a tooth suffering from advanced tooth decay. In addition, a crown helps repair a broken or even worn down tooth. In some cases, crowns can be used to improve the beautiful of a stained or misshapen tooth. Finally, crowns are very useful in tooth replacement procedures, such as anchoring dental bridges or topping dental implants. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the uses of a dental crown, contact your North Fort Worth TX dentist today.
Single Visit Dental Crowns
Traditionally, crowns require at least two visits to place. In between these two visits, you would need to wear a temporary crown. However, recent advances in dental technology allow your North Fort Worth TX dentist to place a crown in just on visit. With E4D CAD/CAM technology, we create a 3D image of your tooth, which a special milling machine uses to craft your crown from a block of dental ceramic. After checking the fit, Dr. Young can place your restoration during the same visit. CAD/CAM restorations save our patients both time and money.
