Through the right restorative dental procedure, you should be able to enjoy more than just oral health support. As important as that support is, you can be understandably worried about how treatment will affect your smile. At our Dallas, TX dentist’s office, we can provide the right approach to care by prioritizing the protection of your tooth as well as the preservation of your smile. A custom dental crown can be made to match the color and general look of your natural tooth. Once in place, it will be able to give you adequate support so that you can bite and chew with your affected tooth, and it will be able to keep your smile looking natural and healthy!

A Durable Crown Can Protect Your Tooth Without Changing Your Smile

It is necessary to place a dental restoration when a patient has a cavity treated, or when an injury causes enamel damage. Based on the condition of your tooth, we will determine if you require a dental filling, or if it will take a dental crown to provide the right support. A crown is able to provide more support, but this approach does call for more changes to your tooth structure. This can be a necessary approach when we cannot rely on a dental filling to provide the protection that is needed.

Planning Your Restorative Treatment

After confirming that you will need a dental crown, we will make plans to care for your tooth by first measuring it and preparing it for the placement of your permanent restoration. At a follow-up visit, you will have the restoration set. The placement is permanent, and you can leave with your custom dental crown secure enough to provide necessary bite support. Its color will be tinted to provide a good fit for your smile, and it will be designed to fit comfortably without interfering with neighboring teeth.

Avoiding Future Difficulties With Your Oral Health

What are you currently doing to prevent the kinds of problems that make restorative dental work necessary? What you do at home will certainly be important. Thorough brushing and flossing will lower your risk for cavities, which means you are less likely to need in-office treatment. With that said, you should still plan on having your smile cared for by your dentist on a regular basis. Preventive dental visits give you important information about your oral health and help protect you by providing thorough teeth cleanings.
