Lifelike dental fillings are applied directly to your tooth structure. The resin material we use to create them will actually bond to the surrounding enamel, providing a form of long-term support that benefits your appearance and dental health. Unfortunately, some problems are just too serious to make treatment with a filling possible. When this is the case, your Mansfield, TX dentist can instead provide a custom dental crown. Crowns are carefully designed to provide a secure, lasting hold, one that will avoid interfering with neighboring teeth. We can provide this kind of support because we take the time to thoroughly plan these services, which includes preparatory work to make sure it comfortably covers your tooth.
A Crown Is Meant To Provide Permanent Support For Your Tooth
Dental crowns are meant to provide lasting support for teeth that need more protection than dental fillings can provide. If you develop a severe cavity, or if you have a dental injury that is too serious for cosmetic treatment, this larger restoration is prepared to provide stability for your bite and oral health. Only placed after the appropriate preparatory work, your restoration will be strong and stable enough to support your bite, and your overall dental health, for many years!
Receiving A Custom Dental Crown
Once we confirm that you need a dental crown, we can start the process of permanently restoring your vulnerable tooth. We need to make sure that your restoration will fit without bothering neighboring teeth, and that it will look natural. At an initial appointment, we will closely measure your tooth and prepare it to receive its crown. You will return when it is ready to be put in position. While many patients seek restorations that imitate healthy enamel, you can also depend on a stronger material, like metal, to provide a crown that is better prepared to support your bite if you have work done on a back tooth.
What Other Restorative Services Can Your Dentist Offer?
By scheduling regular dental visits, you can receive early warnings when problems with tooth decay and gum disease arise. For a cavity, we can provide a custom, lifelike dental filling before more involved services are necessary. Unfortunately, not everyone will see us in time to save a tooth that is not in good health. If you have a problem so severe that an extraction has to take place, we can discuss prosthetic dental work to give you back your complete smile.
