A dental crown is a tooth-like cap placed onto the surface of a tooth. They are meant to improve look and shape, and also strengthen damaged teeth. Various materials like porcelain and ceramic are used to create a cap that matches the color and appearance of your teeth. Dr. Tina pairs up with a local lab to create the best crowns in the greater Colonia area.
Why do I need a dental crown?
When you have weak or damaged teeth, your entire mouth can become compromised. Not only do crowns fix your teeth and prevent any additional damage or pain, they improve the overall the look and feel of your smile.
Dental Crowns are an alternative to implants or partial dentures. Crowns can be fastened to a strong and healthy tooth to provide a noninvasive way to support a dental bridge.
If you have one or more missing teeth your mouth might not be functioning properly and chewing may be difficult.
Missing teeth can allow other teeth to move into the vacant space. This may cause pain by placing more stress on your jaw joints and teeth and sometimes cause the teeth to fracture due to overuse. These teeth that have moved are now more susceptible to gum disease and tooth decay since it is more difficult to properly clean them.
