Dental Crowns

When a tooth becomes damaged to the point that it is no longer structurally sound, you may have only two options: extraction or a dental crown. Whenever possible, you want to save your natural teeth with general dentistry to ensure your oral health. Dental crowns offer a beautiful, protective exterior for your damaged tooth to keep it safe and healthy, while still using your natural tooth as an anchor. At Atencio Family and Sedation Dentistry, we can create and insert dental crowns that will keep your smile complete and beautiful. 

Missing teeth can cause many oral health issues and detract from your facial structure and smile. Dental crowns are a solution for many damaged teeth that would otherwise need to be removed. Teeth with large or multiple fillings from decay can become weak and are easily broken. Cracked teeth or those that have undergone root canal therapy are also candidates for a dental crown. Once in place, your dental crown will function just like your natural teeth, allowing you to eat the foods you love while keeping a complete, healthy smile. 

Porcelain Crowns

Dental crowns can be made from a variety of materials, including metals and porcelain. By far, porcelain crowns are the most desirable for most people as they can be made to look just like your natural teeth. Advances in dentistry have made these tooth-colored crowns more durable, giving you a beautiful tooth that will withstand many years of use. This is extremely important with the anterior or front teeth that are seen when you smile. Dr. Atencio can create a perfect replica of your tooth in the form of a porcelain crown that no one will even know is not your natural tooth, keeping your smile looking wonderful.

If you need protection for a broken or damaged tooth, contact Atencio Family Dentistry today for a dental crown consultation.
