Could a porcelain dental crown restore your compromised natural tooth and complete your smile?
A Dental Crown Can Restore Your Smile
You could see amazing cosmetic results like this after your dentist restores your damaged tooth with a beautiful porcelain dental crown. Contact our Rowlett, TX, practice for a consultation to see if a crown is the treatment you need to complete your smile.
7 Benefits of Dental Crowns
A crown can stop a weakened or cracked tooth from breaking apart.
A crown can restore the form and function of a tooth that is worn down, broken, or has suffered decay.
Dental Bridge Support
Crowns on either side of an artificial tooth can hold a dental bridge in place.
Restore a Dental Implant
A crown can be attached to a dental implant. This is the most effective way to replace a missing tooth or teeth.
Complete a Root Canal
Your dentist may perform a root canal to clean out an infected tooth. A crown can seal the tooth to protect it.
A crown can be used to improve the look of a severely discolored tooth that does not respond to whitening treatments.
With proper brushing and flossing, along with regular dental exams, your dental crown can last up to 15 years or more.
Can My Child Receive a Dental Crown?
Yes. According to the CDC, one in five children under the age of 11 has at least one untreated cavity. When cavities or fractures are found in a young child's teeth, Dr. Ramsey, our board-certified pediatric dentist, can remove the damaged tissue during a virtually painless procedure. We will first recommend dental fillings but in some cases, they might need a stainless steel dental crown. A white covering helps steel dental crowns blend in with the child's natural teeth.

Implant-Supported Dental Crowns A Single Tooth Replacement Solution
Crowns aren't only used to restore natural teeth. They can also be attached to dental implants to replace a single lost tooth. Implants are threaded posts surgically placed in the jawbone to replace missing tooth roots. They can support many forms of restorations, from bridges to dentures and, yes, dental crowns. An implant-supported crown looks and functions just like a natural tooth, and unlike a traditional dental bridge, it doesn't require any modifications to healthy teeth. Because they replace the entire tooth structure from root to chewing surface, implant-supported crowns are a highly recommended dentistry solution for qualified patients. At our Rowlett, TX, practice, Dr. José Montoya has extensive training in dental implants and has been placing them for over 10 years.
Caring for Your Dental Crown
Avoid Sticky and Hard Foods
Hard, crunchy, and sticky foods have the potential to dislodge or damage your crown, especially at first. Eat these only in moderation, and avoid chewing them with your crown.
Don't Chew Hard Objects
Though dental porcelain is very durable, it's not indestructible. Chewing on ice, pen caps, and other hard objects can chip, crack, or break your crown. Kick this bad habit to keep your crown in top shape.
Use a Night Guard If Needed
Teeth grinding (bruxism) can damage your crown, not to mention your natural teeth. Patients who suffer from nighttime teeth grinding can wear a night guard while they sleep to help protect their teeth.
Practice Good Oral Hygiene
Brush twice a day with a soft-bristled brush that won't scratch the porcelain, and floss daily using a front-to-back motion (instead of up and down) to avoid dislodging your crown.
Visit Your Dentist Regularly
Visit the dentist twice a year for routine cleanings. This ensures hard-to-reach areas where the gum meets the tooth are cleaned thoroughly, and allows your dentist to spot any problems with your crown before they progress.
