Teeth are very durable, but not impervious to damage or decay. For a tooth with a crack or deep cavity, a traditional filling may not provide a long-term solution. In these situations, our dentist in Grapevine will usually place a crown, also referred to as a cap, to cover a compromised tooth, restoring shape, strength, and function. For front teeth, porcelain crowns are preferred. These natural-looking restorations are thin, attractive, and durable. Whatever your requirements, you can count on a strong, comfortable Grapevine crown that returns your smile to full strength.
Benefits of porcelain crowns:
Modern dentistry by Grapevine dentist, Dr. Martin respects your time. By implementing the high-tech custom milling machine, called CEREC into his dental office, you can get a crown in just one visit. Walk in needing a crown, and walk out with a beautiful, customized and fully completed crown.
The CEREC machine takes a 3D image of your tooth and uses CAD/CAM technology to mill a block of porcelain into the right shape for you. During this time, you are welcome to have other dental work done, such as fillings, or you may relax, knowing you’ll never need to wear a temporary crown or return for several appointments.
There are advantages to both types of Grapevine crowns available from Dr. Martin. To find your best option, simply come in for your appointment and the doctor will discuss your needs and your recommended treatment. Contact us today!
