Dental Crown Treatment in Fairview & Allen, TX

Metal free ceramic dental crowns

Dental crowns are commonly referred to as “caps,” where the dental crown surrounds the visible portion of the entire tooth. They are typically used when natural teeth are damaged by decay or trauma. Because the crown encases the tooth entirely, it protects and strengthens your tooth so that you can function and chew without worry. This method is highly reliable for repairing the most severe of dental problems. At Sloan Creek Dental, we use metal-free crowns that are both durable and natural-looking so you can smile confidently.

What are the reasons why I may need a dental crown?

Your smile may benefit from a dental crown if a tooth is damaged or decayed to the point that a dental filling will not provide a successful restoration. Dental crowns are less invasive, preserve the natural tooth structure, and require much less recovery time than dental implants because the natural tooth does not have to be extracted. Most commonly, dental crowns are used to correct the following dental scenarios:

  • Long-lasting correction of major dental problems
  • Anchor and attach a dental bridge
  • Broken/fractured teeth
  • Chipped/cracked tooth
  • Cosmetic enhancement
  • Restore a tooth after root canal therapy
  • Protection over large fillings
  • Repair teeth that may have become too broken or decayed to be fixed with a filling
  • To build up a small or worn down tooth such as a misshapen tooth
  • Tooth Decay

Porcelain Crowns

At Sloan Creek Dental, we use porcelain crowns as they are the most popular crown used nowadays due to the durability of the material compared to other crowns. Some advantages of using porcelain crowns are:

  • Porcelain crowns provide the best and most natural appearance as they match your surrounding teeth in shape, size, and color.
  • The best option for front teeth restorations.
  • They are biocompatible, which means they will be toxic-free as no metal will be used.

What is the process for a dental crown placement?

Crown placement is a two-step process that involves two visits to our office. On the first visit, a local anesthetic will be given before this part of the procedure so you won’t feel any discomfort. The dentist will clean and remove any tooth decay and shape the tooth’s surface to fit the crown properly. Once these details are complete, a impression (mold) will be taken of the tooth and the surrounding teeth. This mold will be sent to a dental laboratory where they will fabricate a new crown where the tooth color will be matched to the natural shade of your other teeth.

While the crown is being crafted, this time we’ll fit you a temporary restoration, so the tooth is not exposed. Once your permanent crown is ready, you will come back to the office where we will remove your temporary crown, the tooth will be cleaned before placing the permanent crown onto the tooth, and the dentist will ensure the spacing and bite are accurate.

How should I take care of my dental crown?

Your crown should be treated just like your natural tooth. With a healthy oral hygiene routine like brushing and flossing regularly, going to the dentist for general check-ups and cleanings, your crown will last for a very long time.

Dental Veneers in Allen & Fairview

Unlike a crown that covers the entire tooth, a dental veneer is bonded only to the front of the tooth. Veneers offer a more conservative option to transform the appearance of your teeth while looking and feeling just like your natural tooth. Veneers can be used to change the shape, size, or color of teeth so that you can have a smile you have always dreamed of.  

WHAT ARE THE REASONS WHY I MAY NEED Porcelain VENEERS?

With porcelain veneers, you can fix dental problems and achieve a gorgeous smile without sacrificing your comfort. Most commonly, many people choose porcelain veneers in an effort to correct the following dental scenarios:

  • Cosmetically, to create a uniform, white, beautiful smile
  • Crooked teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Severely discolored or stained teeth
  • Teeth that are too small or large
  • Unwanted or uneven spaces
  • Worn or chipped teeth.
Selecting your crown or veneer color at Sloan Creek Dental

What is the process of getting porcelain veneers?

The process of getting veneers is slightly the same as getting a crown. It requires two visits to complete the process, with little or no anesthesia required during the procedure.

After the initial exam to see if you have adequate tooth enamel and are free of any major dental problems, the first visit is to prepare the tooth. Your dentist will lightly buff a small amount of your natural enamel while shaping the surface to allow for the correct thickness of the veneer. Doing so will allow the veneer to lay flat and in line with your gum tissue. A mold will take an impression of the prepared teeth with the chosen shade (color) chosen by you, which will be sent to a dental lab for your veneers. During this time, we will secure a temporary veneer using removable glue while we wait for your veneers to be created.

Once your permanent veneers are ready, you will come back for a second visit, where your teeth will be cleansed with special material to achieve a durable bond. Prior to bonding the veneer onto the teeth, we will make any adjustments needed to ensure a great fit. Once everything is set, bonding cement is then placed between the tooth and veneer, and a curing light is used to harden and set the bond.
You will receive care instructions for veneers. Proper brushing, flossing, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new veneers.

How to care for porcelain veneers

With proper care, you can treat your veneers like your regular teeth. If you already have a solid oral hygiene routine, you probably won’t need to change it to care for your veneers. You need to brush, floss and routine dental checkups will keep your veneers in tip-top shape!

Had to find a Dentist in a hurry. I had a crown come off that needed to be replaced and cemented so I could eat. They were close and extremely accommodating. Very pleased and made a future appointment.

I arrived a few mins early for my crown and tooth extraction (lucky me), and was seen almost immediately…I can honestly say that I’ll definitely be coming back if I need more dental work. The place is clean, modern, and I felt safe in a covid environment…
