Dental crowns are a type of restoration used to salvage severely damaged teeth. Tooth shape, size, and function can all be restored by dental crowns. A cap or a cover, dental crowns completely encase damaged teeth up to the gumline. Usually made from porcelain, crowns are custom made to match your natural teeth color for a beautiful, long-lasting smile. At Dentists at Lincoln Green, we provide quality dental crowns in Houston, Texas.
Placing a dental crown generally takes two visits to our dental office. In the first visit, our expert dentists, Dr. LePhuoc and Dr. Truong, will take a series of measurements and molds in order to custom make a crown that will properly restore your smile. This information is sent to a dental laboratory, where it takes approximately two weeks for your crown to be made. In the meantime, we will fit you with a temporary crown. Once your crown is back in our dental office, we will check it for shape, fit, and bite. When everything is in place and ready to go, we will permanently cement the crown in place.
