What Are Dental Crowns?

If you’re looking for a versatile treatment option to strengthen and support your weakened tooth, look no further than dental crowns. This type of dental restoration has been around for decades, giving people a chance to enjoy a fully restored smile all while protecting their teeth from further damage and decay.

Your dentist in Richardson can use dental crowns to fix a variety of issues, including:

  • Repairing large cavities
  • Providing teeth with the strength and protection needed after a root canal
  • Transform teeth that are oddly shaped or look smaller than normal

Dental crowns are made to fit over your natural tooth and are customized to match the color, size, and shape of your natural teeth. This ensures you have a beautifully blended smile.

Who is a Good Candidate?

  • A tooth damaged by injury

What is the Process for Getting a Dental Crown?

Dr. Shwarts strives to make every procedure as easy as possible, completing the process in two appointments. During your first visit, he will begin by administering local anesthesia or sedation to make you comfortable. Once he is satisfied that you are ready to begin, he will start preparing your tooth. If it is severely decayed, he will clean out the decay and infection before thoroughly cleaning the tooth and filling it. He will file the tooth down to ensure the dental crown properly fits.

After it is reshaped, he will take an impression, so it can be sent to the dental lab. There, technicians will work to create your dental crown, taking care to make sure your prosthetic matches the size, shape, and color of your natural teeth. It often takes 2 to 3 weeks for the final restoration to be complete.

Once it arrives in our office, you’ll return to have Dr. Shwarts place the crown over your tooth using special cement.
