If a patient needs the shape, size, strength, and appearance of a tooth restored, Dr. Deore and Dr. Jones may recommend a dental crown in Coppell, Texas. A dental crown is a tooth-shaped covering that is placed over a tooth, covering the entire visible area. Our dentists may recommend a dental crown to:
- Keep a weak tooth from breaking
- Hold together a cracked tooth
- Support a tooth with a large dental filling that does not have much tooth structure left
- Anchor a dental bridge
- Cover an irregularly shaped or badly stained tooth
- Cover a dental implant
- Improve the appearance of a tooth
To place a dental crown, our dentists will first take X-rays to check for decay or infection in the tooth roots and the surrounding bone. The tooth has a small amount of tooth enamel removed to allow room for the dental crown in your mouth. Digital impressions are taken of the tooth and those above or below it so that a dental crown can be custom made. With the use of our Glidewell milling machine, our dentists can construct your crown in our office. We will place your dental crown before you leave our office.
