Most patients probably remember little of what they are told at a dental office, but they clearly remember how they felt. At Mason Creek Dental in Katy, TX, we focus on providing comprehensive dental services in a way that helps you feel comfortable and safe. One of the many services we offer is dental crowns.
Dental Crown Procedure
Dental crowns are one of the most common dental procedures. They are used as a treatment for teeth with extensive decay. Dental crowns can also be used to help other dental issues, including:
- Holding a dental bridge in place
- Covering misshaped or discolored teeth
- Capping a tooth after a root canal
Dental crowns are a covering for your tooth that improves its appearance and strength. They can be made of porcelain, ceramic, gold, or other metals.
A dental crown procedure is a multi-step process that often involves multiple visits to our office. Multiple visits are necessary because crowns are custom-made, which takes time.
When you come in to get a crown, we'll make a dental impression. We send that impression to an offsite lab that creates the crown. After the impression, we'll install a temporary crown on your tooth so that you can be as comfortable as possible while you wait for the permanent one. When lab is finished with the crown, you'll come back into the office for final placement.
New dental crowns can last for years and years if you maintain them with good oral hygiene.
Other Dental Services
In addition to dental crown procedures, we offer several other dental services. We offer traditional dental exams, cleanings, x-rays, and fillings. We also offer cosmetic dental procedures including teeth whitening, veneers, and dental implants.
If you're looking for someone to perform your dental crown procedure, call Mason Creek Dental at (281) 492-0600 or set up an appointment with our online scheduler.
