Who Needs a Dental Crown?
Our dentist in San Antonio, TX may recommend a crown to replace the original tooth’s structure and aesthetics. A dental crown is a specially designed (tooth) cap that fits snugly over the stub of the tooth.
You may need a crown if:
- The original tooth is chipped, cracked or broken
- If the space is too large for a filling to seal
- If the tooth is misshapen or discolored
Dental crowns may also be used as attachments to dental implants or to in bridges. They can easily last for 15 years, and with proper care and hygiene, they last for as long as 25 years. The lifespan of dental crowns depends on day-to-day care as well as other factors such as bite forces or teeth grinding.
Please contact Terrell Hills Dental with any questions or concerns regarding aesthetic and durable restorations.
What Are Dental Crowns Made of?
Crowns may be made from different types of materials, including porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, metal, gold, or composite resin. After a detailed evaluation of your oral cavity, we will help you determine the best type of crown for your requirement.
The type of dental crown depends on a number of factors such as:
- The location and size of the tooth
- The position of gingival tissue
- The color or shade of the tooth in question
- The patient’s personal preferences regarding aesthetics and budget
Our trained dentists use the latest technology to place dental crowns for maximum comfort and fit. If your dental crown is chipped or cracked, it should be replaced at the earliest. Please call Terrell Hills Dental for aesthetic restorative options to replace missing teeth.
