If you have one or more of the following imperfections in your smile, our friendly dentists may recommend a dental crown, sometimes referred to as a cap, for your benefit:
- A fractured or weakened tooth
- A discolored, darkened, or stained tooth
- A misshaped tooth
- A tooth with a large filling and compromised supporting structure
A dental crown is a restoration that is created to cover the tooth from the gum line up in order to enhance your smile’s beauty and function. Dental crowns can be created to match the color, shape, size, and tone of your smile, giving you the most pleasing cosmetic result possible. Dental crowns can also be used to cap a tooth after root canal therapy, to complete a dental implant, and to anchor a dental bridge.
At Culebra North Dental Care, we are devoted to helping you have the smile of your dreams for a lifetime. One of the benefits of a dental crown is that it generally lasts up to 15 years. Because dental crowns can be made from several materials, we recommend having a consultation with Dr. Quillian to learn which type of crown is best for your needs. If you have any questions about a dental crown in San Antonio, Texas, we invite you to contact us today. We look forward to hearing from you!
