Dental Protection

                                 


When a tooth has fractured substantially, has had a number of large fillings or is showing crack lines, it may be appropriate to restore it with a crown.  Crowns are used when there is not enough good tooth structure remaining to support a filling.  A crown is commonly called a cap.  As a cap fits over your head, you can think of a crown as a helmet for your tooth.  Unlike a cap though, a crown will offer your tooth some added protection.   The Seminole Dental  in Texas City is conveniently located near MS Doss City Park and Seminole Hospital District is the best filling Expert  dentist near you. for any type of dental emergencies .

The crown covers all surfaces of the tooth it restores, providing full 360 degree coverage around the tooth just like the metal rings that hold the wooden planks on a wine barrel together.  This makes the damaged tooth strong again and offers protection when chewing and prevention from fracturing. 

Some patients come in after years of getting fillings and we find that we can no longer replace the filling.  Fillings are used to prevent tooth decay but if they are not maintained, or if they are not set correctly, tooth decay will continue.  When tooth decay gets significant it must be removed and this can cause the structure of the tooth to be unable to support further fillings.  Crowns are the next step, and although you will be losing a little tooth structure to have room to fit the crown, you will be restoring your dental health.

Your dental crown procedure

To prepare your tooth for its new crown, we carefully remove the damaged portion, along with any signs of tooth decay. Then, instead of using old-fashioned impression paste, we use CEREC to scan your prepared tooth and make a highly detailed 3D image. With this information, our computerised CAD/CAM machine then precisely mills your dental crown from a ceramic block to our exact specifications – in only about half an hour!
