Address worn and damaged teeth with a dental crown. A dental crown is a cap that fully covers single teeth to add structure to the smile and prevent further damage or wear to a natural tooth. Dental crowns can also secure dental bridges or single dental implants.
We provide dental crown treatment for patients at Smile Land Family Dental in San Antonio, TX, to help patients restore their smiles. Tooth crowns are just one of the restorative dentistry treatments we provide to new and existing patients.
Dental Crowns in San Antonio, TX
Sometimes a fracture or other damage to a tooth is so large or has weakened a tooth that a filling cannot repair it adequately. In these cases, to prevent further deterioration and restore the tooth quality, the healthy remainder of the tooth can be made whole again by fitting a crown.
Tooth decay can have a variety of causes, such as a cavity, fracture, or a combination of both. A crown serves to restore the original shape and function of the tooth.
There are different types of crowns:
- Porcelain Metal
- Metal (Gold)
Dental crowns differ in durability, strength, appearance, and cost. If you give your crown regular care by brushing and flossing, it should last for many years. Keep in mind that the most susceptible area of the crown is where it meets the tooth at the gum line, so make sure not to leave plaque sitting there for any length of time.
