Effective Tooth Replacement Options
At Smile Accent, we can replace the visible part of a tooth with a dental crown. This is a common and safe procedure that can last 20 to 30 years when you maintain good oral hygiene and see your dentist regularly. A dental crown has the same strength as a healthy natural tooth and matches the color of your other teeth for a visually pleasing result. Our team will determine whether you need other dental work done before moving forward with the dental crown process.
Smile Accent can replace a damaged or lost tooth with a dental crown. Call us today at (806) 547-1413 or contact us via our online form to schedule an appointment.
We use a dental crown to replace the visible part of a tooth, whether you still have the natural root or a dental implant. We usually consider a dental crown when you lost a tooth, or the tooth is damaged beyond any other type of repair.
A dental crown is also an effective solution for root canals when the cavity left is too large for a dental filling. No matter what, a dental crown is a secure and lasting tooth replacement that allows you to bite and chew normally again.
How Does Your Dentist Create and Set a Dental Crown?
You generally need 2 appointments for a dental crown, unless you require additional dental work that must be done before getting the crown.
During the first appointment, we will:
- Remove any decay or infection in the damaged tooth
- Make an impression of your teeth (and send it to the lab)
- Prepare the tooth
- Place a temporary crown
Your second appointment happens a few weeks later once we have received the definitive crown from the lab. During this visit, we replace the temporary crown with the permanent one.
If you broke or lost a tooth, Smile Accent can help to replace it with a safe and lasting option. Give us a call today at (806) 547-1413 or use our online form to schedule an appointment.
