Tooth-Colored Crowns in Coppell, TX - Deeann Bennett, DDS, PA
A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. It protects and strengthens tooth structure that fillings or other types of restorations cannot treat.
Although there are several types of crowns, porcelain crowns (or tooth-colored crowns) are the most popular because they resemble your natural teeth. They are highly durable and will last many years, but like most dental restorations, they may eventually need to be replaced. Porcelain crowns are made to match the shape, size, and color or your teeth giving you a natural, long-lasting, beautiful smile.

What does getting a crown involve?
A crown procedure usually requires two appointments. Your first appointment will include taking several highly accurate molds that will be used to create your custom crown. These impressions will also be used to create a temporary crown that will stay on your tooth for approximately two weeks until a dental laboratory can fabricate the new crown.
Dr. Bennett will prepare the tooth while it is numb by removing any decay and shaping the surface for a proper fit. Once these details are accomplished, she places your temporary crown with temporary cement and checks your alignment to ensure you are biting correctly.
At your second appointment, your temporary crown will be removed, the tooth will be cleaned, and your new crown will be carefully placed to ensure the spacing and bite are accurate. You will be given care instructions and encouraged to have regular dental visits to check your restored tooth.
