What Are Dental Crowns?
Do you have teeth with significant damage or tooth decay? Our team at Pipe Creek Dental Center can fix those teeth using dental crowns. Dr. Walker treats damaged teeth with the convenience of single-appointment dental crowns to strengthen and protect the visible area of the tooth while returning it to its original size and shape. Crowns are custom made using the advanced E4D treatment system and blend evenly with your natural teeth. They can be attached to single implants to replace individual missing teeth or combined into a unit to function as a bridge. Contact Pipe Creek Dental Center in Pipe Creek, TX to arrange a consultation to find out if dental crowns can restore your smile.
Do I Need A Crown?
Traditionally, a dental crown required two office appointments involving numbing injections and messy molds of the mouth. During the dentist visit, patients will receive a numbing anesthetic, and the tooth will be cleaned and prepared for restoration. During this process with the use of a drill, decayed material and other debris are removed; in some cases, a small amount of healthy tooth structure may also be removed to accommodate the crown. Because the E4D system is equipped to take digital impressions, no uncomfortable molds are needed. This is a great benefit for patients because dental impressions can be uncomfortable and taste bad. Instead, the digital impression of the tooth is then transferred to the on-site milling machine where the new crown is created from a single block of color-matched porcelain. The final stage of this process is ensuring a proper fit and coloration of the crown. It will then be glazed, polished, and bonded to the remaining tooth. Patients leave the Pipe Creek Dental Center office with a restored and balanced bite that looks and feels completely natural.
