Dental Crown Process

The Process of Restoring The Life Back Into Your Smile

Crowns Rebuild & Resuscitate Damaged Teeth

Dental crowns provide full protection for individual teeth that have been damaged. To solidify that we are committed to the highest quality of materials, we use porcelain based crowns to restore form and high-end cosmetics to teeth. The great thing about porcelain crowns is that they resemble real teeth structure, providing esthetics that rival those of natural teeth. One way porcelain crowns differ from its ceramic crowns counterpart is the durability. They last longer and don’t break as easily as ceramic crowns, giving you a long lasting smile. Dental crowns are best known to restore teeth that are:

  • Broken
  • Cracked
  • Decayed
  • Worn
  • Misshapen
  • Root Canal Treated
  • Implant Restorations
Before The Procedure

If you are choosing to get dental bridges or crowns for cosmetic reasons, we recommend that you get a teeth whitening treatment first. At Optima Dentistry, we offer teeth whitening treatments that are easy and affordable compared to other cosmetic dentists in Garland, Tx. We encourage you to get this treatment first since the material that dental bridges and crowns are made up of are bleach and stain resistant.

This means if you have a yellow smile, the crowns and bridges will be made in the same color as your teeth. If you have the teeth whitening procedure done beforehand, your dental crowns or bridges will match your new bright smile!

After The Treatment

It is common to experience some tooth sensitivity whenever you get dental restoratives. For this reason, you need to wear a temporary dental crown as you wait for the permanent crown to be created. During the actual procedure, we will utilize sedation dentistry as a preventative measure to ensure you don’t experience any discomfort or pain. After the procedure however, our cosmetic dentist will prescribe you oral pain medication for you to take for a couple of days until you begin to feel better.

The benefit of wearing a crown is the protection of your tooth. Regardless of the previous damage your tooth had, you can proceed to eat and drink whatever you desire without fear or discomfort. This option is best for those individuals who have severe tooth sensitivity, chipped or broken teeth, or have undergone root canal treatment.  In addition to dental crowns, we also provide dental implants in Garland for those who seek to have a permanent lifetime smile without worrying about getting new cosmetic restorations years later.
