A dental crown may be right for you if one or your teeth needs to have its shape, strength, and size restored. A dental crown is a tooth-shaped dental restoration that will cover the entire visible portion of a tooth. Dr. Hooty Alayan may recommend a dental crown in Round Rock, Texas, for:

– A tooth that has had multiple dental fillings or a large dental filling placed
– A weak tooth that is in danger of breaking
– A broken or cracked tooth
– A tooth with a dental implant
– A misshapen or discolored tooth
– A tooth that has undergone root canal treatment

When you come in for a dental crown, our dentist will first shape the tooth to allow room for the dental crown in your mouth. Then impressions will be taken of the tooth and the surrounding teeth so that your crown can be custom made. Once your crown is ready, our dentist will examine the color and fit. After any needed adjustments have been made, the dental crown will be permanently cemented into place.

Dental crowns can last for many years, or even a lifetime, if they are well cared for. Despite this, dental crowns can become loose or even fall out. To help your dental crown last for a long time, practice good oral hygiene. Brush your teeth twice daily and floss once every day. Also, come to Great Oaks Dentistry at least twice a year for your routine cleanings and exams.
