When a tooth begins to decay or is damaged in a fall or injury, extracting the tooth is only one option.  However, it’s better to keep the tooth if possible, to maintain the alignment and shape of the bite and to preserve the integrity of the bone beneath the tooth.  This can be done by applying an aesthetic dental crown.  At Lakecreek Family Dental of Austin, Texas, we’re experts in dental crowns.  We can help you keep your damaged teeth and improve your appearance, so that your smile is still something you feel confident about.   

Procedure For Dental Crowns

Usually, the entire procedure for a dental crown only takes two or three office visits.  First, we’ll prepare your tooth for crowning by smoothing it out and removing all decay, making it ready for the new crown to adhere.  Then, we’ll take a mold of your tooth to create a custom-made crown that will fit perfectly.  While the new permanent crown is being prepared in our expert lab, you’ll wear a temporary crown to protect your tooth.  We’ll choose a tint for your crown that blends in with the rest of your teeth.  At Lakecreek Family Dental of Austin, Texas, we’ll discuss your treatment plan and all the related treatment costs with you before we even begin. We’ll also help you with your insurance plan.
