The Tooth Alternative: Crowns

Many times, we’ve brought up the unfortunate inevitable event that age, gum disease, or other simple life factors lead to tooth loss. A big elephant in the room, tooth loss isn’t simply subscribed to the natural cycle of the human body. The outside forces are there, and they are all around the world. Car wrecks, other forms of accidents, even assault - any of these can knock a tooth (painfully) right out of place. As if you didn’t have to worry about age, it’d be a matter of going to the right person to help generate a smile again. At Smile New Braunfels, a crown won’t look like simple dentistry.

A major worry when it comes to crowns is that it’ll appear noticeable when you smile. Our goal is to blend the tooth restoration perfectly amongst the others. This is why that first office visit, we spend the prep time working to shape the injured tooth. The final crown will be in progress as you’ll leave with a temporary crown in the place where the finished model will be installed in that next visit. Crowns are usually bonded to porcelain or gold for higher strength. Particularly in accident cases where the tooth has been seriously damaged, crowns will provide that long term solution.

Crowns aren’t just a cosmetic procedure to make you look good. They’ve been proven to help with chewing by giving weakened teeth proper structure. There’s no shortage of accidents in the world; when those arrive, it’s best to have a solution ready for you. Here at Smile New Braunfels, we believe in safe and professional cosmetic procedures to help you maintain your oral health. It’s vital that we become more aware of how we’re treating ourselves - and go to the right dentist to help treat you.
