Dental crowns are designed to replace a tooth by “capping” over it restoring its original structure and natural appearance. There are several instances where Dr. Tamborello and Dr. Bowen may recommend having a custom dental crown created, including:
Dental Crowns can also be used in conjunction with dental bridges, which restore one or more missing teeth in a row within a patient’s smile. When compared to traditional dentures, many people prefer dental bridges because the crowns anchor them into place creating more permanence and stability overall. In most cases, dental crowns and bridges take two to three appointments to create and place. Our Houston office uses quality, all-ceramic restorations to create a visually pleasing and seamlessly lifelike result that patients are sure to appreciate.
Do you have a tooth that’s so decayed neither fillings nor crowns can restore it? There’s still hope – root canal therapy could be the solution that helps you maintain your wholly natural smile. This procedure will involve our Houston team accessing the inner chamber of your tooth, cleaning away bacteria, and replacing it with a safe, biocompatible substance. After sealing the tooth shut to prevent further infection, a dental crown placed on top will replenish its strong, functional shape.
Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to show up in your permanent smile, and this tardy arrival can lead to a host of problems in many patients. They may become impacted, overcrowd your existing teeth, or lead to higher chances of infection. Our team will often recommend a safe removal procedure in order to avoid these concerns and protect your wellbeing.
