A strong and attractive smile is indeed a thing of beauty. But healthy teeth are not something nice-to-have, they are a must-have! For that reason, when one or more teeth are damaged or misshapen, it can impact your quality of life and health overall. In these cases, your Plano dentist may recommend a dental crown to cover and protect the injured tooth and restore proper mouth function. Dental crowns at Prime Dental are placed around the entire tooth, preventing further damage and restoring the shape, appearance, and function.
At Prime Dental, we use dental crowns in Plano to serve the following functions:
If you want to improve the look of your smile, a dental crown may be a good option. Your dentist at Prime Dental uses dental crowns in Plano to restore both function and natural appearance to stained, discolored, oddly shaped or damaged teeth.
At Prime Dental we also use dental crowns to strengthen and restore weakened teeth that are worn down, severely decayed, broken or cracked. Tooth crowns in Plano are a popular and highly effective cosmetic solution.
The protective structure fully covers the natural tooth and is cemented in place. As a result, the crown acts as an extra layer of enamel. Dental crowns are constructed from metal, porcelain or a combination of both. Porcelain is often the preferred material for dental restorations because it best mimics the appearance of natural teeth and is very durable.
Dental crowns at Prime Dental in Plano are a great treatment option when a broken-down tooth can no longer hold a filling. But unlike tooth fillings, where the material is packed into the tooth, a crown is custom crafted in an outside lab. Your dental crown in Plano is designed to fit your unique bite and jaw movements to restore proper mouth function and aesthetic appeal.
