Some San Antonio residents who have a weak or broken tooth may want to research dental crowns as a solution to improve their smile and overall oral health. A crown is really a cap or covering that is tooth-shaped and when it is in place, it will cover the portion of the covered tooth that is above the gum line.
Crowns can be made of metals, resin, ceramic, porcelain, or a porcelain-fused-to-metal material. Your San Antonio area dentist will usually put in a temporary crown while a permanent crown is being created especially for your mouth in a dental laboratory.
Some dentists, including Dr. William J. Stewart of San Antonio, can create porcelain crowns in a single day with CEREC one-day crowns. Patients love having fewer visits and getting their perfect smile sooner with this breakthrough technology.
Dental crowns have been used successfully in San Antonio cosmetic dentistry for decades.
Many Shavano Park, Leon Springs, and Beorne dentists use crowns when performing smile makeovers to cover patient’s discolored or poorly shaped teeth. Strong, natural-looking crowns are also used with dental implants.
