Selecting And Placing The Right Crown

With the right restorative treatment, you can leave the dentist’s chair confident that your smile and oral health are being properly preserved. At our Bellaire, TX dentist’s office, we can provide reliable support so that your tooth is kept safe after an injury or cavity affects it. In order to offer long-term protection while keeping treatment as conservative as possible, there are several restorations that we can recommend. In fact, we can actually provide different forms of dental crowns to support patients who require more protection than dental fillings offer. With partial crowns, we can leave more of your healthy enamel intact while protecting the overall structure. When you need the support of a full crown, we can have one ready in as little as one visit thanks to our CEREC technology.

We Can Make Sure That Your Tooth Has The Right Protection

When you need any kind of restorative dental work, you should feel confident that your tooth has been fully treated, and that you have the protection that you require to avoid potential problems in the future. Treatment for a cavity or dental injury will require some kind of support, as our teeth are not able to recover from this kind of harm. With dental fillings and dental crowns, we can ensure that you have enough protection to bite and chew without difficulty, and we can also see to it that your smile is preserved. For a patient who might require a dental crown, we can offer either a full crown made in our office, or we can recommend that a partial crown be used to provide stability and security while making fewer changes to your structure.

Using Same-Day Crowns In Smile Care

With the CEREC technology in our office, we have the means to produce dental crowns in just one appointment, which means we remove the need to provide short-term protection with a temporary crown that can feel uncomfortable. Digital imaging technology lets us capture the measurements that we need to evaluate the tooth and make a design of the restoration, which we then produce with our in-office milling machine. The restoration is made from a ceramic material that is both strong enough to provide bite support as well as able to match the appearance of your healthy enamel.

Can A Partial Crown Provide All The Support That You Require?

With an inlay or an onlay, we can keep a tooth safe when it requires more than a dental filling, but we can still preserve more of your tooth structure than a full crown allows. The precise nature of this care can attend to larger cavities, chips, and cracks, in ways that preserve your health and bite function, which means a conservative treatment approach can still have lasting value for you.
