When the structure of a tooth becomes compromised, a dental crown is a general dentistry treatment that can add strength and protection, often saving a damaged tooth. At Northampton Dental in Tomball, we offer beautiful dental crowns that can both cover and protect damaged or flawed teeth. We use the latest lab technology to create beautiful dental crowns that look natural and offer excellent durability for your smile.
Dental crowns fit over the tooth and create a new exterior. Crowns can be made from many materials, but porcelain or a combination of porcelain and metal is preferred to match the crown to your natural tooth color. To fit the crown, some of the existing tooth material must be removed. At Northampton Dental, we use the highest quality dental labratories to create perfectly formed crowns for tooth repairs and cosmetic procedures. Crowns are used to protect damaged teeth, but they are also used in dental bridges and to cosmetically change the appearance of flawed teeth.
Restore Cracked or Damaged Teeth
If you have a broken tooth, a large filling, or a tooth that needs root canal therapy, dental crowns, inlays, or onlays may be used to restore the tooth. For cracks or large fillings, a porcelain inlay can be used instead of a filling to repair the tooth if an entire dental crown is not needed. If the cusp or top of the tooth needs repair, an onlay can replace the top portion, made to fit perfectly with your bite. Dental crowns are used when there is significant damage to the entire tooth structure. Crowns are typically used after root canal therapy or anytime a large portion of the tooth has been removed.
