Dental crowns are a common type of dental restoration used to restore both the functionality and beauty of a damaged tooth. Tooth-shaped caps, dental crowns completely encase a tooth up to the gum line. Our dentists work hard to guarantee each dental crown fits properly and looks natural with the rest of your smile. Dr. Johnson, Dr. Nguyen, Dr. Kennedy, and Dr. Olzack may suggest a dental crown in Waco, Texas, to:
- Repair moderate to severe tooth decay and damage
- Prevent a weak or cracked tooth from breaking
- Hold a broken tooth together
- Support a large filling or root canal treatment
- Anchor a dental bridge in place
- Complete a dental implant
Generally, dental crowns are recommended when a large portion of your original tooth structure has been lost or damaged. Thanks to advances in modern technology, we are able to design, create, and place your dental crown in just a single visit to our office. Our system will take a digital image of your tooth, create a model of your new crown, and then fabricate it in a fraction of the time required for traditional fabrication methods. Our dental crowns at Acre Wood Dental are made with porcelain that can be matched to the color of your natural tooth. If you have experienced more serious damage to a tooth, we encourage you to contact our dental office today. We are eager to help restore your smile!
