Giving Teeth the Royal Treatment with Dental Crowns

You have a cracked tooth, or maybe a very large cavity. It’s too much for a filling, but you don’t want to lose your tooth. Fortunately, there is a dental restoration designed for just such a situation – the dental crown. Dr. Jordan Tucker offers a variety of dental crown options at Elite Smiles of Pflugerville.

Dental crowns are essentially porcelain teeth, which are hollow in the middle. They fit over natural teeth, restoring oral health, functionality, and aesthetics. The root and core tooth structure remains intact, but it is encased in a thick layer of high-strength material, usually porcelain. This type of restoration is sometimes called a tooth cap.

What Are the Benefits?

At Elite Smiles of Pflugerville, we understand the embarrassment and lack of use of missing or damaged teeth. We provide dental crowns as an option for Pflugerville, TX patients who are looking to gain many benefits from their appointment, such as:

  • Greater comfort and simplicity of speaking, chewing, and smiling
  • Straightforward, individualized treatment that needs minimal downtime
  • Renewed use and aesthetics of the teeth and smile
  • Longitudinal results that will keep patients happy for years to come

Pflugerville, TX individuals might benefit from having a crown placed in order to treat a variety of oral health conditions and restore function and cosmetic appeal to a tooth. The most prevalent reasons for needing a crown procedure are as follows:

  • Fractured or cracked teeth
  • Erosion or enamel wear
  • Odd-shaped or discolored teeth
  • Teeth that have moderate-sized cavities
  • Teeth with large, failing fillings
  • Teeth treated with a root canal
  • As part of a dental bridge for tooth replacement
  • To restore a dental implant

I recently moved to the area and was looking for a new dentist for some extensive dental work (multiple root canals and crowns). I heard about Dr. Tucker's great work from a friend, and he lived up to the reputation and beyond. He considers himself a perfectionist, which shows in his work and is clear by the attitude of everyone in his practice. His rates were competitive and the quality of his work was incredible. I highly recommend him to anyone in search of a dentist in the area.

Versatile, Convenient, and Long-Lasting

The idea of crowning teeth is not new. It is a tried-and-true technique, which has been successfully used by generations of dentists. That is not to say advances in modern dentistry have passed by the simple crown. In truth, today’s dental crowns are better than ever, with lifelike appearance and superb longevity. Additionally, modern high-tech instruments facilitate exacting precision for an ideal fit with maximum preservation of tooth structure.

Uses of dental crowns include:

  • Correct a misshapen tooth
  • Repair a broken or cracked tooth
  • Restore a tooth with severe decay
  • Protect a weak or brittle tooth, especially after root canal therapy
  • Support a dental bridge
  • Replace a missing tooth (this is a special type of crown that is supported by a dental implant)

About the Procedure

A standard dental crown usually takes two appointments, a couple of weeks apart.

  • During the first visit, Dr. Tucker will prepare the tooth by removing any damaged or diseased material and shaping the structure for optimal restoration retention. He will take impressions, which are used to create your permanent crown. Last, a temporary restoration is added in order to protect the tooth while the dental laboratory creates your permanent crown.

  • The second appointment is timed after your new crown is ready. Dr. Tucker will remove the temporary and try the new one. If there are any concerns about the fit or appearance, adjustments are made. When you and the dentist agree that the crown is perfect, he will cement it in place.

A dental crown placed by Dr. Tucker can repair a number of dental issues, including teeth that are cracked, decayed, worn down, chipped, discolored, broken, or misshapen.

Do dental crowns look natural?

Yes, they do. We offer a variety of dental crowns that are made from materials that look identical to natural tooth enamel. That means that when your crown is finished, nobody will know you have a new crown, unless you tell them.

Does getting a dental crown hurt?

No, most patients don't find getting a dental crown painful. With Dr. Tucker's experienced hand and a variety of anesthetic options offered, having a dental crown placed at Elite Smiles of Pflugerville can be done with little to no discomfort.

How long does a dental crown usually last?

How long a dental crown lasts will depend on a number of factors, including which tooth was treated, oral health, and the type of crown used. Most patients can expect a dental crown to last up to 10 years or longer before it may need to be replaced. Regular brushing and flossing, in addition to regular dental checkups at Elite Smiles of Pflugerville can help extend the life of your new dental crown.
